There should be a good mix of physical, spiritual, and social activities so they stay both mentally and physically healthy. Residents have ample opportunities to socialize with others. Assisted living is a good alternative for people who are no longer able to live alone, but do not need comprehensive nursing care.

Frail Care

The care you need when you are unable to perform activities of daily living, such as eating, personal hygiene and moving about without assistance. When you are no longer able to look after yourself because of frailty or mental incapability, you are unlikely to return to independent living.

Frail care is for people who no longer are able to care for themselves on a daily basis, and who won’t be able to do so for the rest of their lives. Moving into frail care marks a new stage of life, one that is both necessary and beneficial to elderly people who need a greater level of care.
