SENIOR LIVING OPTIONS
INDEPENDENT LIVING COMMUNITIES
Independent communities cater to seniors who are very independent with few medical issues. Residents live in fully equipped private apartments.
Assisted Living communities are designed for seniors who no longer are able to live on their own safely but do not require a high level of care as provided in a nursing home. Assistance with medications, activities of daily living, meals and housekeeping are provided.
Nursing homes provide around-the-clock skilled nursing care for the elderly who require a high level of medical care and assistance. Many nursing homes provide short-term rehabilitation for those recovering from injuries, illnesses or surgery. Long-term care residents generally have high level care needs.
IN HOME CARE
In Home Care allows the elderly to remain their own homes while receiving the assistance they need to help them remain independent. Home care services provide assistance with the Activities of Daily Living and can provide companionship and moral support to the individual. The services range from once a week to 24 hour care and are private pay.
Alzheimer’s care is delivered in the assisted living setting as well as in the nursing homes. With the memory impaired, it is important ot have 24 hour support to ensure their safety and quality of life. These living facilities have secured areas and many facilities have access to secured outdoor patios and gardens.
