When your elderly loved one is ready to make a change in their lifestyle, it could be an overwhelming decision considering the different living options and choices available for them. Knowing what type of housing facility is right needs one to research thoroughly based on the requirements and medical needs of the senior.
Each senior housing option offers different levels of care, support and amenities. Independent living communities are best for seniors with minimal medical problems. Residents enjoy planned social activities and maintenance free living. When your elderly loved one’s health starts to decline, and they need more assistance with daily living activities, one can choose assisted living or, low care facilities.
Memory care is a living option for those who need 24 hour support and structured activities because of conditions like Alzheimer’s. Low care facilities generally follow person centred approach thereby making residents feel more comfortable. A skilled nursing care facility offers the highest level of care for seniors and mostly for seniors with chronic conditions that require constant monitoring.
