Wondering how assisted living works?

if you’re a caregiver for an elderly parent who is still living at home, you’ll likely eventually find yourself curious about what kind of outside support is available.

If you’re starting to feel overwhelmed with caregiving responsibilities, your loved one is experiencing more cognitive or physical challenges as they age, or they’ve simply indicated that they’re interested in finding an alternative to living at home, you may be wondering: how does assisted living work, exactly?

It’s a good question. And while we can’t speak for other assisted living centers, here’s an overview of what you can expect from any of our Benton House communities.
