Senior Care Options

Let’s discuss which senior care solutions will work best for your situation and work together on implementing the changes.

Assisted Living

Assisted living is designed for individuals who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management or assistance, bathing, dressing and transportation.  Some residents may have memory disorders including Alzheimer’s, or they may need help with mobility, incontinence, or other challenges.  

Memory Care Facilities

If your loved one suffers from Alzheimer’s or another memory disorder, these facilities are the best option.  They provide a safe and secure location.  These centers may operate on their own, as part of an assisted living community, or as part of Continuing Care Retirement Community.

Residential Care Homes

These facilities provide personalized series to small groups of seniors.  they also are known as “board and care homes,” as well as “adult family homes.”  This option tends to feature a more home-like atmosphere.  

Independent Living

Featuring apartment living for seniors who do not require specialized care, retirement communities allow seniors to use third-party home health care providers of their choice.  These facilities typically charge an all-inclusive monthly rent that includes weekly housekeeping, a meal plan, local transportation, and social activities.

Nursing Homes

At nursing homes, seniors receive care on a long-term basis.  Guests also have access to nursing services and on-site rehabilitation.   

Continuing Care Retirement Community

These communities offer multiple levels of care in one location.  Care activities range from independent retirement or assisted living to nursing home services.  Entry into an advanced care program is often restricted to residents from the independent living component.  These communities usually feature a buy-in fee and long-term contract.

Home Care

For those individuals who want to remain at home, this option allows seniors to receive personalized assistance based on the level of their needs. It includes help with daily activities like bathing, dressing, housekeeping, cooking and medication reminders.  Home care is often welcome in both private homes and retirement living communities.  It may be restricted in locations providing a higher level of care.
