There are numerous options for Seniors who are thinking about a move to a senior living environment. While many Seniors still prefer to remain at home, others are considering the independent living advantages of 55 communities, senior apartments, condominiums and continuing care retirement communities. Still others are investigating assisted living facilities that provide specialized services in memory care or skilled nursing.

What is different about today’s senior living choices is the underlying change in the concept of senior living. The old status-quo for assisted living facilities and nursing homes has been replaced. Seniors no longer need to fear they will surrender their independence at the door. Today’s choices focus on keeping Seniors as actively engaged and independent as they wish to be, for as long as it is possible. These are residences where Senior people meet with others for daily activities as well as live an independent life.

With the availability of good home health care agencies that provide home care assistance as well as home health care, some Seniors and their families decide remaining right at home best suits their needs. Services such as respite care, adult day care and senior helpers, enable family members who are providing home care to take much needed breaks. However, with new senior living concepts, like 55 communities, and with the transformation of the assisted living facility, more and more Seniors are choosing an independent living environment outside of the home.

Seniors MagazineNo matter which senior living option you choose it’s important to remember that the best environments share these two basic philosophies: A Senior resident is always treated with dignity and respect; Each resident maintains an active, engaged and independent lifestyle as long as possible. Further, all good senior living facilities and senior care homes should meet some basic requirements. These include: 24 hour security and monitoring, help with daily activities like dressing, bathing or toileting if needed, and basic nursing care and medicine dosing if needed. There should also be good access to local transportation as well as opportunities for recreation and social interaction.
