Active Senior Lifestyle
Independent Living

Independent living communities are designed for older adults, generally ages 55 and older, who don’t need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) but are looking for a living environment that offers additional support, onsite amenities such as pools and fitness centers along with socializing opportunities and activities.  As people require more assistance with ADLs, they become less eligible for independent living environments and instead are better supported by communities that provide higher levels of care, such as assisted living.

Best of Both Worlds
Assisted Living

Assisted living communities provide help with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), like cooking and bathing, but not necessarily a lot of medical assistance. Residents usually have a private bedroom and bathroom but have access to common area amenities such as fitness centers, restaurants or dining rooms, theaters, beauty salons, and art studios just to name a few. Offerings in assisted living facilities vary greatly. Typically, assisted living facilities provide meals, housekeeping, laundry, recreational and exercise activities, and transportation to doctor’s appointments. Some might have a limited nursing staff for medical assistance, so it is important to determine what level of nursing presence is important to you.

Supportive Services
Memory Care

Memory care communities can be an exclusive stand-alone building but are usually part of an assisted living community that is specifically for people with dementia. These facilities typically have a larger staff that offers more supervision, and they include security features to prevent residents from wandering outside unsupervised.

Personal Care
Limited Stay

Often referred to as respite or short-stay, but it can take many forms.  In general, these are assisted living communities that cater to residents who just need care for a shorter amount of time in order to recover or regain a level of health to return to their previous living arrangements.
