1. Infection control measures are easier to implement and maintain in assisted living senior care homes .
2. One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year.
In a 2018 study of long-term care providers published by the CDC, the percentage of residents who had fallen significantly increased based on the number of beds in the community.
Therefore, a more intimate home environment can help reduce the risk of falls.
3. The level of care in residential care homes is more personal since each caregiver is assigned to 3 to 4 senior residents vs up to 15 in a larger facility.
