Assisted living residences are housing places for people with disabilities. The facilities give assisting or supervision with daily living activity. They also give services by the outside health care providers. They monitor residents and resident activities to ensure health, safety and well being.

Assistance may include the giving or supervision of medicine or personal care services.

Assisted living–in its current form–emerged in the early 1990s as an eldercare alternative in case independent living may not be appropriate although a person does not need a nursing home, or is too young for retirement homes.
