Summary With the aging of the population, increasing numbers of people will need some type of assistance to maintain their independence. One of the fastest-growing options in long-term care is assisted living, a residential model of living arrangements that strives to combine housing and supportive services in a less-institutional facility. Assisted living arrangements usually offer individuals or couples private units that consist of a bedroom with bathing facilities and small cooking area. Residents also have access to a full-service dining room, a health clinic, and a variety of other spaces for recreational and social activities.
