Seattle Assisted Living

If you live in Seattle and are new to the world of senior care, you may not know the difference between Seattle Assisted Living or a Nursing Home.  Assisted living facilities (ALFs) provide assistance to people needing help with what are known as “Activities of Daily Living” (ADLs). These are simply everyday tasks such as bathing, dressing, eating, housekeeping, and use of medications—activities which most people take for granted. When a person has reached the stage where he needs help performing such tasks, but is not in need of full-time nursing care, an ALF provides a bridge from one stage of life to the next. The philosophy behind assisted living is that adults should be granted the maximum amount of independence they’re capable of.
