Both Independent living and Assisted living offer housing & some support services. Their most notable differences occur in the types & level of personal care services that they provide.

Memory care is a long-term adult care community specially designed for residents with Alzheimer’s disease, other related dementias, &/or cognitive impairments such as traumatic brain injury, within a secured environment. Senior Living Advisors of Austin specializes in advocating for those who require greater assisted care due to medical infirmities &/or memory loss.
