Senior Living Options Explained: Find The Service That’s Right For You!

For many, senior living provides a chance to live an ideal retirement, with maintenance, meals and your social calendar, all taken care of for you. For others, added care services can be the biggest benefit, offering personalized services and peace of mind for families. 

But with a variety of unique living options available, how will you know what’s right for you or your loved one? 

Before you begin your senior living search consider these questions to determine the right level of care:

  • How much assistance do you or your loved one need with activities of daily living? 
  • Would you or your loved one benefit from medication management? 
  • Do you or a family member need around-the-clock support? 
  • Do you or your loved one experience memory impairments?

Once you’ve considered those questions, it’s time to see what living option would be the right fit for you and your family. Here’s a quick guide explaining the different living options.

Independent Living

Independent living is ideal for older adults who desire a maintenance-free lifestyle. With this living option, employees are on-site to provide services like laundry, home and community upkeep, restaurant-style dining experiences, and more — all to make the residents’ lives easier and more enjoyable.

Enhanced Living

Enhanced living is designed for seniors who would benefit from added support, all while enjoying an independent, private apartment and lifestyle. Residents in enhanced living can choose the services that are right for them, with the ability to add services as they need them.  

Assisted Living

In assisted living, caring employees are available around-the-clock to support residents. This living option provides assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), medication support, coordinating appointments and more.

Memory Care

Memory care communities support the unique needs of seniors experiencing dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or other memory challenges. These communities feature thoughtfully designed environments and have specially trained employees to combat the effects of memory loss.

Respite Care

Respite care communities are designed to offer professional, short-term care to individuals recovering from an injury or a medical procedure. Respite care can also  help to provide a temporary stay for seniors to give family caregivers the support they need. 

Finding the right community for yourself or a loved one can be a challenging process— but you’re not alone.
