5. Assisted Living Program (ALP) Units and Memory Care
As you or your loved one ages and the potential for a decline in health increases, choosing DePaul senior living offers convenience and peace of mind for you or your loved one.
Aging in place
Some of DePaul’s Senior Living Communities offer Assisted Living Program (ALP) Units for those who don’t require the intensity of care offered by a skilled nursing facility, but could use some extra assistance beyond the standard services provided in a licensed adult home.
Many of DePaul’s Senior Living Communities in New York and North Carolina include a specialized Memory Care Unit for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

A caring staff makes all the difference: “…your skilled and caring staff…has made it easier for our family knowing that 24/7 our Mom was always watched, cared for and given attention.”
7. Licensed Care
DePaul Senior Living Communities are licensed in New York State by the New York State Department of Health, in North Carolina by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and in South Carolina by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
