Senior Living: Understanding Your Options

May 5th, 2017

Senior living communities offer a variety of services and amenities for seniors at all stages of life. Before choosing a community, it’s important to understand your options and choose the right level for your needs. Here’s a breakdown of the different options to help you make your decision.

Remain Independent with Independent Living

If you’re highly independent, but don’t want to sweat the small stuff, independent living is perfect for you. Offering minimal services, this living option provides assistance with cleaning, transportation, meals and more. Full of social and recreational activities, independent living is the best choice for seniors looking to enjoy their later years without the hassle of household chores and maintenance.

One Step Up from Independent Living

Enhanced living communities offer all the benefits of independent living, plus the option of custom service packages. These packages can include medication reminders, personal styling and other daily amenities. This option is ideal for seniors who are still highly independent but may need some additional daily assistance.

Experience Daily Assistance with Assisted Living

The next level of senior living is assisted living. These are licensed communities with trained professionals who are able to administer medication and coordinate with personal healthcare providers. Assisted living communities cater to seniors who need more than minimal assistance throughout each day.

Ideal for Seniors with Memory Impairments

For seniors experiencing Alzheimer’s, dementia or other memory impairments, memory care is the proper choice. Memory care communities are designed to promote the greatest independence while ensuring residents are safe and well cared for. These communities include specialized programs designed to ease the symptoms of memory loss.
