It’s easy to confuse assisted living with frail care. The difference is that assisted living is usually seniors who need help with day-to-day activities. This can include grocery shopping, companionship, light chores, and medication management if needed.

Frail care is dedicated to senior persons with special health care needs that cannot look after themselves. Oftentimes it includes stroke recovery patients as well as people with dementia and Alzheimer’s. It is also home to residents who need help with doing things for themselves. Assistant living communities are usually under the managing umbrella of frail care facilities so that the health and wellness of each resident are of first priority.

Yes, at all registered frail care and assisted living facilities, you can expect good security. This will ensure the safety of the residents and the staff on-site at all times. Access control is usually strict and monitored and family can sometimes visit per appointment.

When it comes to age, some places accept residents from ages fifty and up, and some from sixty or pensioners and older. But, medical history is often required. There is sometimes a preference given to persons who have medical conditions and need around the clock care. Facilities try their best to place each person in the most suitable residence that will cater to their needs. This will include health, mental wellness, and long-term residency starting with assisted living.

Only the registered resident and staff can stay on the premises. For family visits, some facilities require that the resident obtain permission from the management to allow this. The child of the resident can also get this permission on behalf of their senior parent staying on the premises.
