Independent senior living communities cater to seniors who are self-sufficient and who do not need hands-on care. Residents live in fully equipped private apartments that typically include a kitchenette or a full kitchen. These communities usually offer a broad range of intellectual, physical and social activities and offer a carefree lifestyle, free of many potentially difficult or burdensome responsibilities, such as meal preparation, housekeeping and laundry and house maintenance.
Assisted living communities provide housing and care to seniors who may need some assistance with daily tasks, but who do not require the skilled care provided at a nursing home. Assistance with medications, activities of daily living, meals and housekeeping are routinely provided. Residents live in private apartments that frequently feature kitchenettes, transportation, activities and entertainment opportunities. At times assisted livings may also have a memory care area.
Alzheimer’s and dementia care, also known as memory care, is often provided in a secure area of an assisted living community or nursing home. The secure aspect of memory care communities is intended to prevent residents from wandering off and becoming lost, which is a common and dangerous symptom of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Residents usually live in semi-private apartments or private rooms and enjoy structured activities conducted by staff members trained specifically trained to care for those with dementia.
Nursing homes are for seniors who require 24-hour monitoring and medical assistance. Typical nursing home residents suffer from severe, debilitating physical or mental conditions that leave them unable to care for themselves. They may be bedridden, wheelchair-bound, or have medical needs that require daily skilled nursing care. Nursing homes not only provide for residents’ physical needs but also offer activities tailored specifically to individual abilities along with a meal service.
