Which Senior Living Care Type is Right For You?

We offer resources to help you decide the level of care you or your loved one needs.
Independent living is any housing arrangement for those 55+ who are looking to live in a more maintenance-free community. These communities are designed for seniors who do not require personal care and would like to live independently in a residential setting.
Assisted living is a long-term residential care option for older adults who need some help with the activities of daily living and support in other daily tasks. Residents are able to remain as independent as they please, while receiving assistance and round the clock care.
A memory care community is a residential or multi-unit care facility that is specifically designed to meet the needs of people who have Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. They strive to provide their residents with a high quality of life while taking additional measures to ensure their safety.
Skilled nursing care is a high level of medical care that must be provided by or under the direct supervision of licensed health professionals, such as registered nurses (RNs) and physical, speech, and occupational therapists. Skilled nursing staff consists of RNs, LPNs and certified nursing assistants (CNAs).
Designed for older adults, senior lifestyle communities typically do not offer any on-site medical care, personal care assistance, or communal dining included in the monthly cost. Rather, residents live a completely independent lifestyle, similar to what they had in their former homes.
Nursing homes, also called skilled nursing facilities or convalescent homes, serve anyone who requires preventive, therapeutic and/or rehabilitative nursing care. Nursing homes provide residential care for people who don’t require hospitalization but need 24-hour care they can’t get at home.

Specialized care communities offer more specific types of advanced medical care. This can range from hospice, respite, rehabilitation, palliative, or outpatient care and also include specialized therapy services. Short-term or long-term these communities provide advanced levels of care for seniors in need.

We understand this process can be overwhelming so we have created a series of questions to assist in determining the type of care needed for you or your loved one. Completing this assessment will put you on the right path in narrowing down your choices to help you choose which communities to tour.
