Description The field of assisted living is a relatively new component in the continuum of housing and health care for older adults in the State of Utah, and elsewhere. Assisted living offers a new alternative to older adults who are not comfortable living on their own, but who do not require the services of a skilled nursing facility. This project examines the development of assisted living and identifies the needs of older adults which were not met by other types of services, but that have been addressed by this new concept of care. The project also provides a Consumers' Guide to Assisted Living in the Wasatch Front containing the following: About Assisted Living, Who Lives in Assisted Living Residences, How is Assisted Living Regulated, Cost, Who Pays the Bill for Assisted Living, Assisted Living Services, How to Find Assisted Living Residences, Current Assisted Living Residences in the Wasatch Front, Checklist, Admissions Process, and other information to consider when choosing a residence. The project concludes with an addendum which presents a gerontologist's recommendation of how assisted living residences could better promote healthy aging among their older adult clientele.
