Personal Care and Assisted Living; Are They Truly That Different?


At Sacred Heart Senior Living, we know that choosing the right care options for yourself or aging loved ones can get a little confusing — especially when it comes to finding a senior living facility. With most places treating personal care and assisted living as interchangeable terms, knowing which option to choose isn’t as easy as it sounds.  

That’s why we put together this page — along with a blog post — highlighting the differences between assisted living services and the personal care services offered here at Sacred Heart Senior Living. 

What is Personal care? 

At Sacred Heart Senior Living, we strive to enhance the lives of our residents by providing personal care services that make daily tasks easier and more enjoyable for seniors. Think of it as having a friendly companion to assist with dressing, grooming, and medication management. Our dedicated team also monitors health, safety, and overall well-being, coordinates with outside healthcare providers, and promotes engaging social and leisure activities. With a wide range of services and activities, we aim to create vibrant and fulfilling experiences for our residents.

What is Assisted living? 

Assisted living is a care option for seniors who require help with various daily activities but do not need intensive, round-the-clock medical attention. These living arrangements typically offer a combination of housing, personal care services, and health care designed to respond to individuals who need assistance with normal daily activities in a way that promotes maximum independence. Services can include help with bathing, dressing, meals, medication management, and transportation. However, it's important to note that the specifics of what's included in assisted living can vary from one facility to another. 

Does Sacred Heart Senior Living Offer Personal Care? 

Absolutely! At Sacred Heart Senior Living, we fully understand that every individual has unique needs. Our Personal Care program is designed to cater to those needs while allowing our residents to maintain their independence. The goal is to ensure that our residents can enjoy their day-to-day life with ease, knowing that support is just around the corner.
