What to Expect in Jacksonville Assisted Living Communities?

Assisted living communities in Jacksonville Florida often bridge the gap between independent living and nursing home care.

These assisted living communities provide both temporary and long-term housing for people in Jacksonville who need help or supervision with day to day activities within a warm and homelike setting. In addition to offering emergency help and 24 hour security, assisted living communities offer 3 nutritious meals a day, and trained caregivers lend a helping hand with medications, bathing, dressing, housekeeping and apartment maintenance, as well as providing transportation for shopping, outings and getting to the doctor.

While providing a high level of independence, assisted living communities are a great way to increase physical and mental agility through an increased social life, organized recreational and social activities and endless opportunities to interact with other residents. It’s a fair assumption, that assisted living residents receive a much higher level of socialization and physical and mental stimulation as compared to remaining in their own home.
