The philosophy of assisted living is to emphasize the right of the individual to choose the setting in which she/he would like to have care and services provided. In choosing an assisted living residence, residents are expected to: • Be treated with dignity and respect. • Be informed of services available and the limitations of those services. • Manage their personal funds • Retain and use personal possessions. • Interact freely with others. • Have freedom of religion. • Control their health-related services. • Maintain their privacy. • Be free to exercise their rights and responsibilities as a resident. • Have the right to voice or file grievances.
