HERE ARE SOME ANSWERS TO COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS WE GET ABOUT LIVING AT JOY
Whether you’ve just started your search or have narrowed down your selection, you may have questions about senior care and assisted living. Based on our years of experience and leadership in the industry, we have answers to many of your questions. Here they are:

Is there a difference between a "nursing home" and an "assisted living"?
Though at times they are used interchangeably, there is a real difference. A nursing home describes a 24-hour skilled nursing facility for seniors who need constant supervision and medical support. It is typically more hospital-like than an assisted living community.

While promoting independence, assisted living communities provide medication supervision and assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming, etc. Staff are there 24-hours-a-day to provide supervision and assistance. All of this takes place in a more home-like setting.
