    There can be no difference. But generally assisted living offers more hands on services. Assisted living generally has some staff that oversee the running of the facility.  Cleaning and repair staff. Dining room. Barber,hairdresser. Gift shop. Exercise room. Library.  Supervised living is when someone is or several people can live independently, but need some regular help. Perhaps bills need to be paid, medicine placed in weekly pill containers, a calender set-up and review, conflict resolution. 

    Assisted living usually provides you everything you need and you live in a nursing home type environment. You might require no individual staff.  

    Supervised living maybe a group of apartments, but is more often an individual residence. You usually have some staff you hire on your own, or have family help.

      Supervised living is more independent. For example in supervised living someone might come to check on your. In assisted living they do everything for you.

    Assisted living is living in a building where there is assistance when needed- small apts, with mini kitchens, safer bathrooms, and a button to call for help.

    I am not sure what supervised living is.

    There is assisted living and nursing home which involves much more nursing care, no kitchen, help in the shower, etc.

    Supervised living has people that check on you and tell you what to do. Assisted living has people that check on you and help you to do things if you can't do it yourself.
