Assisted living is intended for people who are able to select and direct the personal assistance services they need.
The care principals of assisted living – choice, privacy, independence, individuality, dignity, and respect – derive from a recognition that adults, even when they need support and assistance in daily life, retain the ability and right to manage their own lives.
Assisted living enables residents to maintain their privacy by living independently in their own lockable personal space within the residence.
Residents maintain dignity by making choices about their daily activities, based on personal preferences and lifestyle. When required, staff provide the assistance that is least intrusive and support residents to live as independently as possible.
