Rhode Island Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

Rhode Island, the smallest state by area, is located in the New England region of the United States. Despite its name, most of the state of Rhode Island lies on the North American mainland. Rhode Island has long held the nickname of “Little Rhody,” though the state has officially adopted the nickname of "the Ocean State," as nearly one tenth of Rhode Island's inland area is covered by salt water, and no resident is more than a 45-minute drive from the water's edge.
Being small doesn’t hold back the cultural opportunities in Rhode Island. Providence, the state’s capital, is home to the Rhode Island School of Design, one of the best art schools in the nation. The school’s Museum of Art houses 80,000 works ranging from Greek sculptures to more contemporary pieces. Newport has the largest collection of Colonial Era structures in the country and a number of palatial Gilded Age mansions.
For the outdoorsy retiree, there are roughly a dozen “heritage trails” throughout the state that let you take a walk through Rhode Island’s history. There is also a 100-mile network of bike paths and nature trails crisscrossing the state, as well as hundreds of acres of forest. If you are more of a beach-goer, you will love the 400 miles of coastline, ranging from jagged cliffs to sunshine-filled beaches.
