What is assisted living's unique view toward caregiving?
The philosophy of assisted living is to emphasize the right of the individual to choose the setting in which she/he would like to have care and services provided.
In choosing an assisted living residence, residents are expected to:
• Be treated with dignity and respect.
• Be informed of services available and the limitations of those services.
• Manage their personal funds.
• Retain and use personal possessions.
• Interact freely with others.
• Have freedom of religion.
• Control their health-related services.
• Maintain their privacy.
• Be free to exercise their rights and responsibilities as a resident.
• Have the right to voice or file grievances.
