What is assisted living?
Assisted living is ideal for people who can still live independently but need extra assistance with daily tasks such as taking medication, bathing, dressing, making meals, housekeeping, transportation and other everyday needs. Our trained, caring staff members provide individualized support designed to help each resident maintain their highest level of independence. In fact, we have a licensed nurse on staff 24/7 dedicated just to our assisted living community. For more information, read our blog post, When Is Assisted Living Needed?
How does assisted living differ from skilled nursing?
Skilled nursing offers a higher level of medical care, usually for people who have numerous, ongoing health care requirements. Assisted living is intended for people who are generally able to care for themselves except for a few activities with which they require help — for example, preparing meals, bathing, dressing or performing household chores. Assisted living is also helpful for people who are sometimes confused or experiencing memory problems. For more information, read our blog post, Assisted Living: A Closer Look.

Can I have guests and visitors?
Your guests — grandchildren, family and friends — are always welcome to visit you in your home. They’re also more than welcome to enjoy our recreational facilities, amenities, activities and dining venues with you while visiting. Some Benedictine communities also offer guest rooms that can be reserved and rented for visiting family members and friends.
Are Benedictine’s assisted living communities pet-friendly?
Most of our communities are pet-friendly and welcome dogs, cats, birds and fish upon approval through our Pet Admissions Program. When you visit, be sure to ask about the pet policy and approval process, and find out which areas of the community are pet-friendly. All our communities accept service dogs and certified companion animals.
Can residents bring a car?
While residents may bring a car, our communities provide transportation options that make a car unnecessary.
