Many people believe that senior living communities are interchangeable with senior housing. The truth is that the former offers more than lodging and many more exciting amenities and value-added services that enrich their living experience. Living communities are designed to encourage socialization and interaction and have daily activities to keep their residents entertained and engaged to keep their physical and mental health active and stimulated. However, these communities can also be designed to cater to the needs and requirements of their residents. We cover them in our guide below and why they might be suitable for you or your loved ones, from assisted living to independent living.
Usually referred to by many as retirement communities, they are suitable for those who do not require any assistance with their daily activities of living and can live independently. These living communities are usually equipped with emergency care and response but assisted living is not supported. The type of housing options and styles are varied and can range from detached, standalone homes to stylish, contemporary apartments designed to maximize comfort, convenience, and safety with maintenance services available to keep utilities in top shape.
Most independent living communities also offer activities, amenities, and services designed to value-add to residents’ living experience and keep their golden years worry-free. They often have a recreational clubhouse where residents can socialize and interact while participating in exciting activities such as painting and crafting classes, enriching educational courses, and festive celebrations. Amenities such as a fitness center, game rooms, beauty and grooming salons, and concierge, laundry, and housekeeping services are also available on-site to help residents thrive and prolong their independence.
This living option is suitable for those who require some assistance with their activities of daily living, as the main goal of an assisted living community is to provide these assistive services. Before being admitted into the community, a health assessment would also be provided following the state’s standards and regulations to determine the level of individualized care the resident would require, so service team members can follow a customized care plan that caters to their needs.
Assisted living communities offer some of the services: meals, housekeeping, laundry, concierge, and transportation to provide residents with more convenience. The living community would also have service professionals available 24 hours, 7 days a week to ensure their residents’ safety and provide them the care and support they require. In addition, activities and programs are planned regularly to keep the residents’ physical and mental health in check.
