Catholic assisted living facilities help seniors reach deeper into their faith with various educational programs that dig deeply into the Bible and offer guidance and strategies that help individuals derive more from their faith.

While much else in a Catholic assisted living facility will be common to all good care facilities, these activities will leave no doubt as to the true importance given to faith.

Every senior entering an assisted living facility needs to measure of direct assistance with personal care.
