Argentum is the leading association fighting for Provider Relief Funds to ensure seniors and their caregivers have the resources to stay safe and remain in their communities.
Senior living communities offer options such as assisted living, independent living, memory care, and continuing care. Across the country, approximately 2 million seniors call these communities home.
As a critical part of the health care continuum, senior living critically needs federal financial relief to offset added expenses and support the future of operations.
Who are assisted living residents?
Senior Living Communities Are Not Nursing Homes
Senior living is a community-based model for older adults focused on providing quality care and services. The industry is comprised of various levels of care, including assisted living and memory care. Unlike nursing homes, the majority of assisted living communities do not receive support from Medicare or Medicaid, nor have they received ample federal financial relief due to COVID-19.
