Assisted-living facilities offer a relatively new way to care for seniors who can't manage on their own. The facilities are typically a cross between an apartment building with services and a nursing home with various levels of personal assistance, which are all covered by a monthly rental fee. This paper examines literature on assisted-living facilities in the United States. It concludes with a summary of the research, which shows that, as the American population continues to grow older, increasing numbers of alternative and assisted-living arrangements are going to be required. Assisted-living facilities now represent the most rapidly growing type of residential care for elderly individuals in the United States.
