1. Aging In Place
This is when someone who is aging lives on their own or with family members. If you have an older adult in your life that still can live and do things independently, remaining home can be a decent option. If they still require some assistance, there are plenty of in-home services that can be used to facilitate it. This includes meal delivery services, cleaning services, in-home caregivers, and more.
2. The Village Concept
This is the concept of both local businesses and neighbors working together to assist each other. Any older adults looking to get some of the same benefits they would typically expect from a retirement community might consider this option. However, the difference being, they don’t have to leave the comfort of their own homes. A village typically doesn’t offer the services directly, but instead, they act more as a liaison for it.
3. Independent Living
This is specific housing that was specially designed for seniors. This can include various options, including retirement homes, senior housing, and even things like senior apartments. This is good for those who are looking to situate themselves in a more active community but who still want the benefits of having a lot of their chores and other things are taken care of for them.
4. Residential Care Home
These are typically smaller facilities, and they usually focus on offering more personalized services to a smaller portion of people. They are usually referred to as adult family homes. They are suitable for those who might require individual home care but who want everything provided, including meals, lodging, and even daily assistance.
5. Continuing Care Retirement Community
These are the communities that are a mix of a lot of different things. For one, they are part of independent living, and they are also part of nursing facilities. They even are part of assisted living facilities. Because they are a mix of all of these things in one, they are suitable for any aging adult looking to stay in one location for the rest of their lives. Not everyone wants to have to make transitions as their needs change. With this community, you don’t have to worry about that. They also happen to be very good for spouses who might have loved ones who require more care, but they want to stay close to them.
6. Assisted Living Community
This type of community features smaller apartments in a friendly community. With assisted living communities, you tend to have a lot of different services being offered. This means that any older adults can live independently but can also lean on professionals for assistance. You’ll find some do offer even higher levels of attention to detail and care. Typically, you’ll find everything from 24/7 staff availability, help with medication, hygiene assistance, and more.
7. Nursing Home
This is the one that you would want to choose for older adults that require around-the-clock supervision. A nursing home delivers everything from help with meals to activities and even with health management. In a nursing home, you’ll have a licensed physician supervising all of the resident’s care individually, which can give peace of mind to individuals and their loved ones.
