Small assisted livings are best when choosing a place for our loved ones. The cold big hotel-style assisted livings can give you luxury but lack the warmth and attention when needed. In small assisted livings, attention and care become the priority. Seniors no longer wait 45 min until someone can help. There is no longer a need to compete for attention. They no longer will have feelings of loneliness because a caregiver is available and in constant sight. This is as close to living with family, as you will find. Compare this to the hotel-style assisted livings with one CNA to twenty residents.
