What’s the Difference Between Assisted Living and Personal Care?
Before 2011, the two terms “assisted living” and “personal care” were used interchangeably in communities across Pennsylvania to talk about the same types of care. A more precise definition exists for each, though there is still some overlap between the two types of services.
To be considered an assisted living facility, each housing unit can only house up to two people and must always have a door that is lockable by the residents in that unit. Each house must have a full bathroom, and a registered nurse must be at least on call at all times. Also, the staff at an assisted living facility has training that equals more hours than the staff at a personal care facility.
Personal care facilities often have care options similar to assisted living but not nearly as thorough or legally mandated. Residents at these facilities share their rooms with up to three people, with four people per room being the maximum. Personal care facilities are not required to have full bathrooms or lockable rooms.
There is also no requirement for the personal care facility to have a registered nurse on call 24/7; instead, residents have access to health care centers and other kinds of well-trained staff to deal with medical issues that may come up.
There are only a few licensed assisted living care facilities across Pennsylvania, and all the Columbia Cottage facilities are on that list! We are proud to serve our groups of seniors with all the benefits of living in one of our communities. Our assisted living residents enjoy independent living while enjoying the peace of mind that comes with having the care they need readily available, no matter how those needs change over time.
