What to Consider About Assisted Living in Alliance
Alliance, OH, was formed in the 19th century from the merger of several smaller towns, two of which were called Freedom and Liberty. Today, the Ohio Department of Health’s Office of Health Assurance and Licensing regulates Alliance's eight assisted living communities with an eye toward protecting the freedom and independence of the hundreds of seniors who live in them. Residents of Ohio's assisted living facilities get room and board, help taking some medications and regular assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing and grooming.
