As our newest assisted living community, Oaks at Towne Lake, located in Woodstock, Georgia, opens its doors, we look back at one of our most popular (and informative) blogs ‘How Assisted Living Communities Differ From Nursing Homes.' Oaks at Towne Lake is an assisted living and memory care community and is not a nursing home. While we do offer services like medication management, regular health assessments, and on-site therapy programs, we do not provide skilled nursing care.

Just as the seasons change, and the summer heat gives way to a cool autumn, so do the seasons of life. Moving is a daunting and intimidating process, especially when combined with the emotions that come from the process of aging and moving into assisted living. Moving into assisted living comes with the complication of downsizing from a house into an apartment or condo-sized space. Most families do not know where to start in the moving process. After an assisted living community is selected and move-in date is set, it’s time to discuss what items they will take to their new home.
When it comes to aging loved ones, looking to the future can often be overwhelming and full of unknowns. The prospect of transitioning your elderly parent out of their home is difficult and emotional from the start and without a clear understanding of your options can be downright agonizing.
If your parent is not able to live independently any longer, your first thought may be to place your loved one to go into a nursing home, but that is not your only option. Assisted living communities offer a long-term care option for adults who can retain independence but need to receive some level of care on a daily basis. To help you understand the services offered by an assisted living community and how it differs from a nursing home, we’ve put together a list of the top differences.
