What Is Assisted Living?
Assisted senior living is a type of residential care for seniors who need a bit of help with their regular daily activities. Seniors in assisted living communities receive personal care and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting. These services are provided only as needed so that they’re able to live as independently as possible.
Today, a look around assisted living communities shows something far different from the clinical setting we might imagine. Assisted living in the U.S. typically offers a wide range of services and amenities to enrich resident’s lives. We ensure that each senior gets the help and care they need in a setting they can comfortably call home.
What are the benefits of assisted living?
While each community is different, an assisted senior living community offers services and that focus on specific aspects of wellness. Physical health, intellectual stimulation, and social connection is the foundation in senior holistic health. These three pillars help slow cognitive decline and keep seniors living healthier and happier lives. Some of the services we offer at Spring Gardens Heber include:
- Help with personal care
- Medication management
- Mobility assistance
- Delicious, restaurant-style dining
- Social activities and outings
- Laundry Services
- Home maintenance and repairs
Assisted living residents receive the support they need while enjoying the company of other residents and staff members. In addition, family members get peace of mind knowing their loved one is getting the best care possible.
We offer comfort and convenience on-site in our community. Assisted living amenities vary among all the different communities, but at Spring Gardens Heber you’ll find: :
- Beauty salon and barbershop

How Much Does Assisted Living Cost?
Cost is often a concern for individuals considering assisted living. One thing to remember is that the monthly fee includes a variety of services — from dining to laundry — and saves you the expense of things like property taxes, utilities, groceries, yard service and more. Before you decide you can’t afford assisted living, try adding up all those monthly expenses — and the mental stress of paying those bills every month — and consider whether you’d prefer more time to enjoy your life.
What is the difference between Assisted Living and Memory Care?
Assisted living and memory care have very different levels of care. Memory care is a form of long-term care for seniors with varying forms of dementia. Today, many assisted living communities offer memory care in addition to assisted living care.
Typically these two types of care are offered in separate areas of the same community. Every aspect of memory care is designed with the dementia resident in mind — from the types of activities organized to the presence of secured courtyards and doors with alert systems to prevent wandering.
Memory care typically costs 20-30% more per month than assisted living because of the extra required training and safety measures.
What is the difference between Assisted Living and Independent Living?
Independent living communities offer many amenities that one would find in assisted living communities. Gyms and exercise classes, communal dining rooms, prepared meals and planned social activities are usually readily available. The most significant difference between assisted and independent living is that independent living does not offer personal care assistance for ADLs.
