Most commonly used terms to define an Assisted Living Facilities

Here are some of the most common terms to define Assisted Living Facilities. Believe it or not, Assisted Living Facility is the most common term used for this type of Alternative Housing in Southeast Florida, Monroe, Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.

Some other terms are:

  • Residential Care Facilities

  • Personal Care Facilities

  • Adult Congregate Care Communities

  • Retirement Residences

  • Supported Care Facilities

  • Senior Living Communities

In Florida, and in many other states, six-bed or small Assisted Living facilities are becoming very popular, as well. especially in Miami Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties these smaller facilities are gaining popularity because they are able to provide more personalized services. These small 6 bed communities are able to provide more one on one care.

These small Assisted Living Facilities in Southeast Florida are usually in private homes and are licensed and regulated by the same governmental agencies that govern all of the Assisted Living Facilities, regardless of size.

The smaller homes must pass all surveys and inspections required by the state in which they are located.
