Services vary from facility to facility but may include dietary and housekeeping services, monitoring of prescription medication, social and recreational opportunities, and assistance with toileting, bathing, grooming, dressing, mobility and other activities of daily living. Individuals who are incontinent or who have severe problems with memory loss may not be accepted.
