What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living is a form of care for seniors who require a happy medium between independent living and needs-based nursing homes or memory care.
In assisted living facilities, you or your loved one will enjoy a secure environment with richer support for daily activities such as bathing, dressing, medication management, mobility, and more. Pegasus’s experienced and professional associates help retain your dignity and independence as they provide quality care services.
Plus, our retirement communities excel at providing an excellent active and social environment where seniors can meet and mingle with others in the same stage of life.

When to Consider Assisted Living
There are five activities of daily living (ADLs) that are essential to independent living. They include bathing, dressing, transferring (free movement and mobility), toileting hygiene, and eating. If you or a family member require support completing one or more of these ADLs, it may be time to look into an assisted senior living community. Ask the following questions to determine your care needs:
- Are tasks of daily living a challenge?
- Are you isolated and lacking social engagement?
- Missing a connection with individuals at a similar life stage?
- Do you experience issues with mobility or access to medical care?
