A living arrangement in which people with special needs, especially older people with disabilities, reside in a facility that provides help with everyday tasks such as bathing, dressing, and taking medication. Generally, these are state-licensed programs whose exact definition and coverage will vary from state to state. 2) Assisted living facilities are designed for frail elderly residents who need assistance with activities of daily living. Frail elderly person means an elderly person who is unable to perform at least three activities of daily living. Assisted living facilities are comparable to the independent living units generally designated as part of a board and care home. An assisted living facility unit accommodation may include its own kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area or bedroom. The services/amenities in an assisted living facility may be more intensive than typically offered in a board and care home. However, there is no typical assisted living facility. Like board and care homes, assisted living facilities may have similar names in different localities such as personal care homes, residential care facilities, etc. Assisted living facilities will be designed/developed to promote independence and provide personal care assistance according to individual needs in a home-like environment.
