What Is Senior Independent Living?
Comfort Keepers health care agency shares information and resources about a home care alternative
Just a couple of decades ago, seniors with failing health had only a couple of options at their disposal, including nursing homes and remaining at home with the help of close family members. Nowadays, there are a wide array of senior care solutions to choose from, such as assisted living facilities, senior independent living communities, and at home care provided by a health care agency.
The kind of care you will opt for depends on your loved one’s physical and mental health, as well as their preferences. Before making the best possible decision for your aging parent or relative, it is important to explore all your options, compare their strengths and weaknesses, and come to an agreement with your family.
You may want to consult with a senior health care agency in order to determine the right course of action and weigh the pros and cons of all the solutions available in your area.
Articles & Resources About Senior Independent Living
Typically, care experts recommend nursing homes for seniors with depleting physical and mental health. Assisted living facilities are just right for seniors who do have some issues and need assistance to remain independent but are not completely dependent on others. Senior independent living communities, on the other hand, are ideal for older adults without any pressing health concerns who wish to live in a senior-centric community with their peers.
In nursing homes and assisted living facilities, there is usually some sort of schedule to follow, depending on the needs of the clients. However, in senior independent living communities, seniors are active and self-reliant, enjoying a routine that best works for them and engaging in activities they find pleasurable. What’s more, senior independent living communities may feature amenities such as tennis courts, fitness centers, and pools, allowing older adults to remain as physically, mentally, and socially active as they wish.
It is important to note that, at Comfort Keepers senior health care agency, we do not own or operate senior independent living communities. We offer a myriad of care solutions provided for a client in their home, from assistance with personal care and companion care to respite care and dementia care. Our services are developed to assist older adults who wish to make the most out of their senior years in the comfort of their own home.
