Senior Living is a Lifestyle Choice Whether you’re visiting this site because you need care for yourself or a loved one now, or if you're planning for future needs, everything you need to know about senior living is right here. Senior living (or senior housing and care) is a lifestyle choice for individuals seeking an independent lifestyle with as much assistance as they need or want. The settings are just like our own homes, but with the added advantage of meals and entertainment, housekeeping, transportation, and assistance with daily activities. You have a variety of housing and care types from which to choose, and the senior housing communities you may be considering can help assess you or your loved one for the most appropriate environment based on needs. Independent living communities, which are much like apartments or condominiums, are most appropriate for seniors who do not need assistance with daily activities, such as dressing or bathing, but desire a community of seniors who may share meals and activities together as they choose. Assisted living communities serve seniors seeking a vibrant, independent lifestyle with assistance available to meet individual needs. Assisted Living communities for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia are often referred to as Special Care Units (SCUs). SCUs are often housed in a special wing with additional security, cueing devices and other specific architectural features. Nursing Homes are medical care options that provide care of chronic conditions or short term convalescent or rehabilitative care, for which medical and nursing care are indicated. The many types of residences, lifestyles, and care options are as diverse as our own needs and preferences. When it comes to senior living, it’s often said that if you’ve seen one senior living residence, you’ve seen one senior living residence. And, if you think you can’t afford the cost of senior living, you’ll be surprised.
