Assisted Living Frequently Asked Questions

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a safe option for any elderly individual who are no longer able to safely live independently. We provide care and supervision in a group setting.

Assisted living offers a vast range of living spaces, from private to shared rooms, for those who are semi-independent or anyone needing day-to-day care.


Assisted Living consists of many choices in terms of facility size, from large communities to smaller residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFE). All options provide non-medical care but we also provide hospice and palliative care support.

What is a Residential Care Home?

Residential Care homes, known as board and care homes provide our close-knit community of guests with personal services. This includes daily living assistance, lodging, and meal service.


Unlike nursing homes, care homes are designed to create a homelike residential living. Services offered at residential care homes are based on individual care plan/requirement.

Are You or Your Loved One a Candidate for Assisted Living? 

Assisted living facilities serve seniors who are looking to make the transition from a home, nursing home, rehabilitation center, or even hospital.


The criteria for daily assistance is dependent on the individual’s overall ability to perform certain daily tasks. Better Living takes care of those with cognitive, physical impairments or both in our community. Our skilled staff has years of experience addressing the needs of our residents.
