Independent Living is ideal for seniors who are looking for companionship and freedom from housekeeping, laundry, transportation, and preparing meals. The larger apartment style communities have a “hotel” feel.
Assisted Living is probably the most popular choice among seniors and their families. Assisted Living communities come in either apartment style living, or smaller board and care type of homes.
Alzheimer’s Care homes are especially designed, maintained, and staffed for people who have Alzheimer’s or other forms of Dementia. These communities have a unique design including alarms on all windows and doors to prevent wandering. Staffing typically has taken special courses and/or seminars on how to care for seniors with behaviors such as aggression, depression and confusion.
