An Independent Living Community for seniors is there for those who need more socialization than living alone at home. They do not require medical assistance, but may need a little help around the house. Independent Living communities provide a personal apartment, either a studio, or 1 to 2 bedrooms, along with their own kitchen. Residents also enjoy the added choice to eat with friends in a community dining room with prepared meals. There are no living restrictions, and seniors have the freedom to come and go whenever they please. The primary goal of independent living is community.
Assisted Living communities offer assistance with daily living activities. Every community offers different levels of support, so it’s important to understand the level of care your loved one needs now as well as what health conditions may arise in the future. Assisted Living community settings vary. In many locations assisted living could be considered independent living with added services such as bathing, dressing, toileting and stand by assistance for those who need more “hands-on” care. Meals and activities are usually included in the price.
An Alzheimer’s & Dementia Memory Care Community is for people with a diagnosis of middle to late stage memory conditions. These memory care communities specialize in special care needs and are designed to enhance memory functions and to decrease potential confusion for memory care residents. Activities focused on memory recall from past experiences are usually the staple in these settings. People who are appropriate for this setting are usually those that are already residing in an assisted living environment who have begun forgetting how to perform the daily activities of life or who have begun wandering or have demonstrated combative behavior.
