1. Aging In Place
This is when an older adult lives in their place or with their family. Suppose you have an older adult and can still do things independently or get what they need at home. In that case, this could be a reasonable option. You can find many different options to help allow them to stay at home, whether it be getting professional caregivers, professional maids, and more. You can also make many home modifications to ensure that they can get around their homes quickly. This can include adding ramps for wheelchairs, bathroom bars to keep from falling, and more.
2. The Village Concept
This is a different kind of model that gets neighbors and the surrounding businesses to help each other. This is similar to the type of experience you would get at a retirement community. However, it allows them to remain in the comfort of their own home. While they don’t typically provide the needed services directly, they act as a concierge.
3. Residential Care Home
These are smaller facilities that tend to offer customized services to a smaller group of adults. These are referred to as adult family homes or personal care homes. This is an option for those who might require more of an individual home setting but can still get things like meal services and various assistance services.
4. Continuing Care Retirement Community
This is typically a community that is usually split into three different things. It’s a part independent living, part skilled nursing facility, and part an assisted living facility. This is good for any aging adult looking to stick to a single location for the rest of their life but who might not want to worry about any future care requirements. It can also be a good option for spouses who wish to stay very close with one another, no matter if they have differing levels of care needed.
5. Assisted Living Community
This is a community that usually has a lot of smaller apartments in a community setting. With this type of assisted living, you can get a lot of different services. The adults in the community are capable of living relatively independently at the same time. A lot of these communities do have a higher level of care if needed. You will typically find services like medication management, bathing, transportation, housekeeping services, and more.
6. Nursing Home
This is an alternative for any aging adults looking for an option that offers around-the-clock care and supervision. Any older adults who require extensive care will want to seek out nursing homes because a licensed physician will be supervising every resident’s care individually.
