No. Nursing homes tend to seniors at all times, 24/7, and provide assistance with everyday activities. This makes them ideal for seniors who need around-the-clock care and supervision.
Assisted living communities, on the other hand, are designed to help senior citizens maintain independent lives, while still receiving the care and assistance they may need. This makes them a good choice for senior citizens who may need help with daily tasks, but who would like to do other things on their own.
To learn more about the difference between assisted living and nursing homes, read our blog, Assisted Living vs Nursing Homes.
The primary difference between assisted living and independent living is that assisted living facilities provide 24/7 access to as-needed assistance and additional care. This means that residents can get help with everything from activities of daily living (ADLs) to toileting assistance and appointment scheduling.
Independent Living facilities, in contrast, are designed so that seniors can perform many of these daily activities on their own, without having to tend to the responsibilities of owning their own home, such as housekeeping, meal prep, or laundry.
The total cost of assisted living varies depending on the services offered, the needs of the resident, and the specific area in which the facility is located.
That said, our assisted living services cost between $3,500-$5,300/month depending on the individual needs of our residents (based on assessment.)
Medicare doesn't generally cover long-term care like assisted living, but it may cover some medical services that you or a loved one may need, such as outpatient care, prescription drugs, and dental and vision expenses.

There is a misconception that nursing homes and assisted living serve the same function. While both provide homes for senior citizens, their purposes are quite different.
Both have their merit, but you need to know the differences before signing a contract for either one. Without the knowledge, you could be hurting your loved one without even knowing it.
Moving an elderly loved one into a care facility can be a difficult process. Many seniors see the move as a loss of their independence and are unable to imagine the benefits of their new home. Others are overwhelmed by the move itself, and, for them, selecting which treasures to leave behind is just too painful. Leaving a long-time community can also be very stressful, and possibly losing touch with friends adds to the anxiety.Read More
