St. Louis, MO, June 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- AssistedLivingFacilities (dot) org..org is a new website that has launched to help senior citizens become more educated consumers as they make the decision to migrate from an independent living situation into assisted living housing. Over the last couple of decades, assisted living has emerged as an ideal private pay senior housing option for the elderly no longer able to live independently but also not in need of 24-hour medical care, such as that offered in a nursing home. The transition into senior housing is one that brings along with it many questions and Assisted Living Facilities is a resource geared towards informing potential assisted living residents to alleviate concerns.
Assisted Living Facilities strives to offer consumers as much unbiased information as possible relating to assisted living as it is defined by a specific state. The assisted living directory contains all the licensed facilities for each state, over 40,000 nationwide. In addition, the specific state requirements are explained in detail while the specific state contacts are also offered for further research.
Assisted Living Facilities will be adding assisted living facility reviews, more expanded and in-depth senior care company profiles, more analysis of various senior healthcare statistics and cost information and other helpful eldercare information.
A senior or family member can research all licensed assisted living communities in their area, and use the available information to help make a more informed decision in their senior care selection process. The website also operates a comprehensive senior care blog that offers helpful information and advice from authors experienced in the senior care industry.
On Assisted Living Facilities, seniors can learn from one another. In many cases, seniors considering the move into assisted living share the same concerns and by being able to review and research what others in the same situation have asked, they can gain clarity. An eldercare question and answer section allows consumers to research previously posted questions and answers to those questions, as well as asking their own.
Assisted Living Facilities is a comprehensive senior care resource that aims to make the transition into senior housing easier for elderly Americans and their families as they face the decision to move from independent living into assisted living. Our nationwide assisted living community directory lists information on over 40,000 state-licensed senior care providers. We also offer various senior housing information resources including an eldercare blog, a question and answer area and various research articles.
