Independent living is for people who want to and are able to live independently but do not want to maintain a home. Many people prefer to live in a senior community with others of the same age and with similar interests. An independent retirement community allows for a great deal of social activities and trips. Many independent senior living facilities also offer prepared meals and provide a wide range of amenities.
Assisted living facilities are for people needing assistance with activities of Daily Living but wishing to live independently for as long as possible. Residents in assisted senior living centers do not require constant care either but are not able to live entirely by themselves. Help is available for daily living activities such as eating, bathing, dressing, laundry, housekeeping, and assistance with medications. Most facilities offer supervision 24/7 and medical care. They also have an array of support services, with more privacy, space, and dignity than many nursing homes at a lower price. Assisted living is a great option for seniors who need care with everyday living.
Most assisted living facilities create a service plan for each individual resident upon admission.
Assisted senior living facilities are often connected with independent living residences and nursing homes. The combination is known as a continuing care retirement community. The resident can take advantage of the full range of services available and the ease of transfer to a different type of facility as his or her condition and needs change without needing to look for a new facility, relocate, or adapt to a new setting. For example, the resident may begin in the independent senior living residences, move to assisted living as he or she needs help with activities of daily living, and eventually move to the nursing home as ongoing care becomes necessary.
Alzheimers / Dementia facilities are specialized living arrangements for seniors with memory impairments that have progressed to the point where they can no longer communicate normally and/or take care of themselves. Besides a room and meals in a common dining area, these facilities provide constant supervision, formal nursing care plans, help with activities of daily living (ADLs) and personalized care designed to offer patients as much mental and memory stimulation as possible.
Home care services are given to persons in need of medical, nursing, social, or therapeutic treatment. Senior services are offered to the disabled, terminally ill, or those recovering from a medical condition.
