Marietta Assisted Living Care
As we age, many of us need a little help here and there. This is especially true when it comes to the activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, moving around, eating and using the restroom. Many people have increasing difficulty with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), which include cooking, cleaning, shopping, managing finances, taking medications, driving, caring for pets or other people and using technology like computers and smart phones. Fortunately, assisted living communities provide the help with ADLs and IADLs that allow people to continue leading independent and active lives — while receiving the occasional support they need.
Assisted living communities are comfortable, homelike environments, staffed with caring and compassionate professionals who provide help with bathing, dressing, cooking and more. Residents are free to spend their time enjoying their lives, for example, rather than worrying about preparing meals or their own safety in the shower.

Assisted Living FAQs
Everyone has questions when they’re researching and touring assisted living communities, regardless of whether they’re looking for themselves or someone else. Here’s a list of the most common questions we’ve come across to help with your research.
What is assisted living?
Assisted living helps adults that are largely independent handle daily tasks like getting dressed or bathing. It’s typically delivered via a supportive living community where they have ready access to trained staff members. Assisted living services may include help with tasks like getting dressed in the morning and evening, managing and taking medications, bathing and eating.
What's included in assisted living?
Each assisted living community will have different inclusions and exclusions. The major elements that most communities include are housing, assistance with daily tasks, dining, and maintenance. Depending on the community, you may also get other services such as security monitoring, emergency response systems for risk areas like bathrooms and other amenities.

Is an Assisted Living Facility Different from an Assisted Living Community?
Yes. Assisted living facilities offer high-quality assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and cooking. Assisted living communities offer these same services, but in a homelike, community atmosphere. Comfortable surroundings help residents feel like they truly belong; the community atmosphere helps residents make new, meaningful connections with new friends and neighbors.
What Does Assisted Living Provide?
Assisted living provides help with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, taking medication, going to the bathroom, cooking and cleaning. Many people who live in assisted living communities need help with just one or two activities of daily living, and these communities offer a customized level of support. Assisted living offers the support needed to create the freedom to lead independent, meaningful lives.
Does Medicaid Pay for Assisted Living?
Medicaid coverage varies widely, depending on the state that offers it. Typically, though, Medicaid programs will cover:
- Personal Care Assistance, which provides help with bathing, dressing, toileting and eating
- Homemaker Services, such as housecleaning, laundry, shopping for essentials such as groceries, and meal preparation
- Case Management
- Personal Emergency Response Systems
Medicaid will not usually cover the room and board of assisted living, although some states do offer optional cash assistance programs, also known as SSI state supplement (OSS), to cover the cost of room and board in an assisted living community.
