Senior ActivityToday, Seniors have many living environments to consider when researching their nearby possibilities. The choices range from assisted living facilities to senior apartments and retirement communities. Gone are the old notions of nursing homes that still bring thoughts of confinement and loss of independence to mind. Today’s options are places where independence is key and where senior people meet for wide ranging daily activities, not just for meals.

For some Seniors, staying ‘in place’ to remain home instead is a compelling option. The growing availability of home health care services that provide home care assistance and senior helpers make this a viable choice. More and more Seniors, however, are choosing to live outside the home as the choices are varied in the services they provide, and it is likely that there is an environment better suited to their needs than opting for home instead senior care. The alternatives now include active senior communities such as senior apartments, condominiums and 55 communities, as well as continuing care communities and assisted living facilities that offer memory care living and skilled nursing services.

When the choice is not to ‘remain home instead’, Seniors and their families will find many types of alternative independent living environments are available. It’s important to keep in mind that the best senior living options share two basic philosophies: Seniors should be engaged in active lifestyles and remain independent for as long as they are able, and they should always be treated with dignity and respect.

The concern that many Seniors have over losing their independence is misplaced. The old style nursing homes and assisted living residences have been revamped. Now there are senior living options, such as 55 communities, that offer complete autonomy. Other senior living options offer senior lifestyles that provide almost complete autonomy while offering the security of having senior care services close at hand when needed. Today, all good senior living environments provide opportunities for recreation and social interaction, allowing each Senior to remain independent for as long as possible. These environments also provide other basic requirements, as they become needed:

  • 24-hour security and monitoring.
  • Assistance with dressing.
  • Bathing and toileting when needed.
  • Help with nursing care and administration of medicine.
  • Access to local transportation.
