Seniors Have a New Resource to Research Assisted Living Housing Options

Assisted Living Facilities launches with a nationwide directory of over 40,000 state-licensed senior living communities. A senior care blog and Q&A area also offer helpful advice and information for elders and their families considering assisted living.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 16, 2010 -- is a new website that has launched to help senior citizens become more educated consumers as they make the decision to migrate from an independent living situation into assisted living housing. The transition into senior housing is one that brings along with it many questions and Assisted Living Facilities is a resource geared towards informing potential assisted living residents to alleviate concerns.

Over the last couple of decades, assisted living has emerged as an ideal private pay senior housing option for the elderly no longer able to live independently but also not in need of 24-hour medical care, such as that offered in a nursing home. However, since assisted living is regulated at the state level, and not nationally, differing licensing requirements and different terminology exists between states throughout the country. This is where Assisted Living Facilities tries to educate and inform.

Assisted Living Facilities strives to offer consumers as much unbiased information as possible relating to assisted living as it is defined by a specific state. The assisted living directory contains all the licensed facilities for each state, over 40,000 nationwide. In addition, the specific state requirements are explained in detail while the specific state contacts are also offered for further research. Using this information, a senior or family member can research all licensed assisted living communities in their area, and use the available information to help make a more informed decision in their senior care selection process.

The website also operates a comprehensive senior care blog that offers helpful information and advice from authors experienced in the senior care industry. Each blog author brings a different viewpoint from within the senior care industry, whether it's a former nursing aide with eldercare experience, a caretaker whom has experience with the assisted living selection process, or an industry author and researcher. Blog topics range from assisted living industry news, senior care company spotlights, to specific posts such as one offering advice to seniors for dealing with loneliness while living in assisted care homes.

On Assisted Living Facilities, seniors can learn from one another. An eldercare question and answer section allows consumers to research previously posted questions and answers to those questions, as well as asking their own. In many cases, seniors considering the move into assisted living share the same concerns and by being able to review and research what others in the same situation have asked, they can gain clarity.

Over time, Assisted Living Facilities will be adding assisted living facility reviews, more expanded and in-depth senior care company profiles, more analysis of various senior healthcare statistics and cost information and other helpful eldercare information. The website URL is
