Assisted Living Directory lists numerous facilities and, at times, other senior care options, organized by state, and then by city.
Assisted living has emerged as a popular senior living option for those elderly people seeking a place to reside that offers medical monitoring and minor medical care while still offering personal privacy and freedom. Assisted living is licensed and regulated at the state level, which makes for a wide range of differences among assisted living communities.
AssistedLivingFacilities.org strives to serve as the informational resource for assisted living in the United States. We list information on over 36,100 state-licensed assisted living facilities and try to explain the rules and regulations of each state. We try to offer as much useful information as possible to help you decide if assisted living is a good option, and if so, to select the best facility possible.
