The main goal is to offer residents in-depth medical care, there isn’t as much opportunity for life-enrichment activities. Assisted living on the other hand is designed to help seniors maintain their independence by offering personalized support with daily tasks. Residents enjoy their own senior apartment and have access to a wide variety of activities and amenities that are designed to build meaningful connections and a higher level of wellness.
