Assisted Living

Group at Table in a FacilityAssisted living (also known as Housing with Services) is a very popular housing setting for older adults. Typically they offer a package of services for those who live there and are generally required to be registered with the Minnesota Department of Health. In most assisted living facilities, rent may include a basic package of services and amenities, such as:

  • on-site staff onsite 24/7
  • transportation for shopping and health care appointments,
  • some meals
  • cultural activities
  • wellness programs
  • laundry
  • help with finances
  • help arranging medical services
  • housekeeping

Services offered and pricing can vary widely. But if an assisted living location is a registered Housing With Services, the owner/operator must write a 17-point contract with each tenant. If they charge fees for health-related services, then they have a home care license or contract with a licensed home care agency. Be sure to consider how the costs of the rental packages and additional services will fit into your finances. You can shop around and compare costs and locations by visiting MinnesotaHelp.info or calling the Senior LinkAge Line at 800-333-2433 for to learn more.
