Assisted Living for Physically Challenged/Disabled Young Adults. Independent living for a disabled young adult offers room and board, housing, transportation and the use of a personal assistant. There is a variety of housing to choose from when considering assisted living options.
Assisting living residences provide individuals, living with a form of disability, the security and assistance they need to live like a person who is not disabled. Most assisted living communities provide on-site care, while some contract with outside agencies. Amenities vary from facility to facility.
Assisted living is a residential community for people who need help with everyday activities, such as bathing and dressing. Since residents usually live in their own private or semi-private apartments, these communities are able to offer a supportive atmosphere that is still independent.
Assisted living facilities vary greatly from location to location, and so do the services they offer. Some common services include assistance with daily care, meal preparation, and transportation. Residences may be an apartment, a shared dwelling, or separate, one-floor dwellings within a larger community of similar buildings.
