Personal Care vs. Assisted Living: What’s the difference?
The terms “Personal Care” and “Assisted Living” can often be used interchangeably. However, the main difference between Personal Care homes and Assisted Living communities are the health services and the level of health care offered.
Personal Care residents enjoy a higher level of assistance with their daily activities. 24/7 on-site caregivers provide family members with peace of mind knowing their loved ones are taken care of.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Personal Care and Assisted Living?
Typically, Personal Care residences are often seen as a combination of Independent Living and Assisted Living. Personal Care residents may need assistance with activities of daily living, but still, maintain an independent lifestyle in many ways.
Assisted Living communities are the best choice for residents who require a greater level of care beyond assistance with daily living. Residents often require frequent access to health care services.
Who qualifies for Personal Care?
Seniors whose health or well-being requires a higher level of support or those who would benefit from a healthier lifestyle and social engagement qualify for Personal Care. Most communities conduct a health assessment that follows state regulations to determine what level of care or assistance is best for each individual.
What kind of services does Personal Care provide?
Personal Care communities give older adults personalized care in a residential setting. Most senior living options – including Personal Care Living communities – provide services that include:
- One to three meals a day
- Monitoring of medication
- Personal care, including dressing and bathing
- Housekeeping and laundry
- Some medical services
- Social and recreational activities
- Care coordination
- Mobility assistance
- Complimentary transportation
Some communities offer respite care or short-term stays. Additionally, some communities offer access to home care services for those who may need more assistance than is provided at the community but who are not yet ready for a skilled nursing care center.
What is the cost of Personal Care?
The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2021 estimates the regional median monthly rate for Assisted Living is $4,666, which breaks down to around $156 per day.
To put that into some context, the same survey says a private room in a nursing home will cost around $292 per day ($8,670 per month). Home health aide services average $172 per day.
Who pays for Personal Care?
While your personal health insurance coverage continues and your pharmaceutical coverage continues, Medicare typically doesn’t pay for Personal Care. Most Personal Care residents pay for this kind of care from their personal resources or with help from coverage provided by long-term care insurance. Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits can help cover the cost for eligible Veterans and surviving spouses who are over age 65.
