What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lebanon
The city of Lebanon was founded and settled in 1761 and is home to many notable historical landmarks, including the Dana House, which was built in 1765 and is the oldest house in the city. Nearly 14,000 people call this historically rich city home, including a large senior community that accounts for 18.4% of the population. Some in this age group may seek help from one of the area's nine assisted living facilities, including two in Lebanon and seven more in neighboring cities.
In Lebanon, as in the rest of New Hampshire, assisted living facilities are classified as Supported Residential Health Care, which is for residents who qualify for nursing home-level care, and residential care facilities, which provide a lower level of care.
