Since the initial cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) were identified in the US, the unique vulnerability of older adults has been painfully demonstrated with several nursing home–associated outbreaks.1 The public health response, though entirely appropriate to halt transmission and save lives, requires draconian limits on movement and visitation.
As a consequence, similar interventions have been put into place in other residential communities, such as assisted living facilities. As the name implies, assisted living facilities provide older adults with a range of assistance for activities of daily living. Nearly 1 million older adults live in an estimated 25 000 assisted living facilities in the US, most with impairments in cognition or mobility.
