Senior Living Options

Many seniors are resistant to even the notion of moving from their own home and independence and refuse to talk about their future care and alternative senior living options. Maybe it’s because their view of senior care is outdated. Thankfully, today’s seniors have fantastic alternatives for living out the golden years of their life. Here are a few options for senior living, thanks to Alternatives for Seniors.

First, there’s in-home care, such as home care agencies and adult day care or respite care. Home care agencies can help with companion care and assistance with daily tasks, and adult day care or respite care provides a break for families who take care of their parents or grandparents.

There are also independent and assisted living facilities, which provide seniors with a great community and a level of care based on their needs.

Nursing homes or long-term care facilities offer the highest level of care outside of a hospital, offering round-the-clock medical staff for high-needs seniors.

And finally, Alzheimer’s or memory care facilities provide a safe, secure place for loved ones suffering from dementia and memory loss.

And perhaps the most inclusive is the Continuing Care Retirement Community or Life Care Community, which offers multiple levels of care, from independent and assisted living to nursing care. That eases the transition for seniors, and provides flexibility based on their needs.
