Assisted living is an alternative to the institutional nursing home that uses innovative design, financing and management to provide independent housing for American senior citizens. This study discusses a model of long-term care that combines a residential environment with professional care services, maximizing the autonomy of residents. The book provides professionals with an introduction to assisted living, and offers practical advice on design choices, financial arrangements, meeting regulation requirements, and managing the needs of frail residents.
