GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- If you’re in the process of finding care options for an aging adult, a senior parent, or a loved one, then you may find there are a plethora of care services to choose from.

There’s also assisted living, which refers to a housing facility offering support to residents who choose not to live independently. While in-home care can be a great choice for seniors, the features of assisted living communities are often thought to be more beneficial.
