What is assisted living and where can I find assisted living facilities in Delaware?


Assisted Living is a housing option that provides supportive services to residents who need help with daily activities. Supportive services usually include personal care, supervision, and some access to nursing care. Generally, assisted living care provides a resident with more independence than nursing home care. In Delaware, Medicaid can pay part of the cost of assisted living care for those who qualify.

A list of licensed assisted living facilities in Delaware is maintained by the Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Long Term Care Residents Protection. Please visit the Division of Long Term Care Residents Protection's website for a copy of this list.
