Independent Living Community

Independent Living (Retirement Community) is for seniors who are able to live on their own while enjoying the conveniences of living within a community.  These communities provide services and amenities such as property maintenance, housekeeping, social activities, dining, transportation and security.  Many communities have gyms, beauty salons, lounges and more.

Assisted Living Community

Assisted Living (Personal Care) is an option that combines housing, support services and health care as needed.  Residents are encouraged to do everything they want to do, to the best of their abilities.  When assistance is required, well trained & caring staff are there to provide support.  Activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing, as well as transportation and reminders to take medication are just a few of the services they provide.  Most facilities are designed with safety and fall prevention in mind.  They also offer activities and amenities to keep your loved one active & socializing.

Memory Care

Memory Care (Dementia Care) specifically supports the physical and cognitive needs of those living with Alzheimer's and dementia.  Memory care communities offer secured areas that residents can not leave unless under supervision.  Most memory care communities are designed with visual cues and themes to stimulate memory and help residents find their way around.  They offer programs & activities that focus on resident's personal history and help stir memories, build connections and retain skills.

Respite Care

Respite care is a short-term stay at a senior living community.  Respite care stays are available for a variety of care levels and purposes and range from 1 week to 6 months.  Respite stays are approximately half the cost of hospital or rehab stays.  Often a respite stay is beneficial after a release from the hospital or rehabilitation center to insure a loved one is well enough to return home safely.

Skilled Nursing Homes

Skilled Nursing Care (Nursing Home) is for those who need ongoing long-term nursing care or for those who need short-term rehabilitation while recovering from a surgery or illness.  Skilled facilities provide medical services and 24-hour supervision by licensed nnursing personnel and certified nursing assistants.  Skilled long term care should only be considered when all other options have been exhausted.
