    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Shelton

    The city of Shelton, like much of Connecticut, has a small-town New England feel. There are 41,296 people in Shelton with three Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in town and an additional 18 in the surrounding area. Assisted Living Facilities in Connecticut are referred to as managed residential communities (MRC) and primarily serve adults 55 or older who need assistance with health, nursing or activities of daily living (ADLs). Connecticut doesn't license ALFs, but the agencies who provide these services. These "assisted living service agencies" are licensed by the Department of Public Health (DPH).
