DifferentSenior Living Options
There are a lot of different options for senior living, and navigating them can be very confusing. We only offer assisted living and memory care, but we want to give you the information you need to make the right decision.
Senior living is a complex market, but we want to clear it up for you. The primary differences in the options below are your needs for day-to-day assistance, medical care, and personal preference. Day-to-day activities include bathing and showering, personal hygiene, dressing, mobility, and eating. Medical care could be as simple as self-administering oxygen or complex enough to require 24/7 care. Your health care provider may have information and concerns about your senior living options, and you should consider their recommendations along with how you feel about the situation. Below are the different types of senior living and how they differ from one another.
What Are the Different Types of Senior Living?
There are many different options for senior living, and often your situation won’t be cut and dry.
Here are some of the most common options.
To a certain degree, in-home senior care can span any of the options above. In-home senior care like private duty nursing can grow or change to fit any plan of care in any setting. But for seniors requiring certain levels of assisted living or memory care, moving into a community may be necessary.
What Senior Living Option Is Right for Me?
Your senior living options and the facility you choose are driven largely by your level of independence, your medical needs, your financial resources, and your personal preference. In the ideal world, seniors have caregivers who can work together with their physician to determine a plan of care that’s right for them. They can also build this plan to include progressing through different forms of senior living. This is a great jumping off point to think about your other important planning options, like preparing a will and expressing your desires if you end up in critical condition.
