People use the term “assisted living” quite often, but many may be using it incorrectly. Add “licensed personal care” to the mix and things begin to get downright confusing. Parc Communities is here to help establish the difference between these two senior living terms to make it easier to understand when you or your parent(s) are looking to make the transition into a senior living community. People who need reliable assistance with activities of daily living (ADL’s) can find supportive care with our licensed personal care community.
Although assisted living and personal care facilities are similar in the state regulations they must meet, Parc Communities’ standard for licensed personal care stands out from the rest. For instance, theaverage staffing ratio for assisted living is one staff member for every 15 residents, whereas at Parc, weare able to provide more personalized care with one experienced professional for every 12 residents. Parc Communities also offers a more intimate atmosphere as we serve 25 or fewer residents at once, while assisted living must serve a minimum of 25 residents, allowing us to provide exceptional personal care and attention.
So let’s make this simple. Assisted living communities can help you take care of all your personal services. A licensed personal care community such as Parc Communities offers all-inclusive licensed care and assistance in an active and engaging environment. With licensed nurses and caregivers available 24/7, residents are free to enjoy the hospitality of the Parc lifestyle knowing that all their needs will be met.
