What is high acuity assisted living?

High acuity assisted living is an assisted living community that also provides enhanced medical care. 

High acuity care in assisted living is designed for seniors who have more complex needs than those in a standard assisted living community. 

Residents in need of high acuity care may be those with chronic illnesses, dementia, or who are recovering from surgery. Enhanced care encompasses physical and occupational therapy as well as memory care. 

Standard assisted living provides help with daily activities. High acuity communities, such as The Kensington Falls Church offer a higher level of medical support, such as: 

  • Medication management
  • Wound care
  • Use of specific equipment
  • Physical or occupational therapy
  • Around-the-clock licensed nursing supervision

An enhanced assisted living community allows seniors with more complex needs to live in a comfortable environment while receiving the support they require. Residents may age in place rather than have to move elsewhere that can accommodate their care.
