Understanding the Senior Living Community Options

The many choices for senior housing can be overwhelming. Some older adults are able to live out their retirement years playing golf and enjoying relatively few health problems. In contrast, others require assistance with their care needs which is often dictated by health and safety concerns.

The information below will provide you with some of the more common options available in today’s senior housing market. For more information, contact your local Always Best Care office today to help you make an educated decision about the right senior living option for you or your loved one.

Assisted Living

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a type of housing designed for people who need various levels of medical and personal care. Living spaces can be individual rooms, apartments, or shared quarters. Assisted living communities generally provide a home-like setting and are physically designed to promote the resident’s independence. Services are offered to assist residents with daily living. What “assisted living” means depends on both the state and provider in question. Variations in state regulatory definitions are significant and provider variables include everything from care provided to geographic location, organizational size, and structure.

Services Provided by Assisted Living Communities

Assisted living communities typically provide supervision or assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), coordination of services by outside health care providers, and monitoring of resident activities to help to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Assistance often includes the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services. The services offered by assisted living communities vary from facility to facility. Services often include:

  • One to three meals a day
  • Monitoring of medication
  • Personal care, including dressing and bathing
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • 24-hour emergency care
  • Some medical services
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Medical emergency response
  • Visitation policy

“Hi Tom, ???? it’s been over 7 years since I last worked for you company. If anyone is wondering where to start, please start here. The owners treated me like family. I was going through a lot of changes and most especially culture shock but Tom was always compassionate and easy to talk to. He understands. If I choose to have a company someday, I will like to be the kind of employer Tom was to me. It is the extra pain of coming to pick me up from home to take me to work that has remained in my heart for this long. Thank you always Best Care. Thanks Tom, Thanks Kathy.”

Sheryll D.

“This is the best company when you need at home care. Our mother needed in home care for dementia and Tom and Cathy took the time to get to know her to ensure the right members of their team came to care for her. Even when a caregiver was sick, etc… they would personally volunteer to come if we needed. Lastly, when we had to make the decision to move my mom into a facility, Cathy made sure we found the best place and even came for move in day. Tom and Cathy… thank you!!! Your compassion and service were exceptional!”

Tom R.

“Kathy was an amazing resource as we looked for the right senior care environment for my Mother. I highly recommend Kathy and Always Best Care Senior Services to anyone needed help finding the right senior environment for a loved one.”

Bill K.

“I really appreciate the assistance we received from Always Best Care during a very difficult phase of our lives. My mother wasn’t keeping well and despite loving her so much, we weren’t able to give her the care she needed. That’s when Always Best Care helped us find the right senior living option for her. It’s been six months since she has moved to a nearby Assisted Living facility, and we are glad she is very happy there. Thank you so much again!”

Felicia H.

“When in-home care didn’t seem to be helpful for my mother, we decided to move her to an Assisted Living facility. The experienced care coordinators of Always Best Care helped in finding a suitable facility. I am very satisfied with their service.”

Richard P.

“I would give more stars if I could. Tom was absolutely fantastic to work with. He met with me and my sister to review our mom’s condition and her needs in great detail. He was able to identify facilities that would provide her the proper care for her progressive dementia. He also met with my mother one on one to assess her needs and understand her challenges. Tom identified a short list of appropriate facilities to provide excellent care for our mother. He visited the facilities with us and provided us insight into each facilities pros and cons. He did so in a non-emotional, very objective and almost surgical way. He has sincere compassion for the people involved in this process as he and his wife went through the same so they work from a realistic point of view based on their own experiences. Tom also helped negotiate on our behalf in order to meet our financial budget. Highly recommend!”

Paul S.

“Thanks to Always Best Care and their exceptional staff I am able to be stress-free for my father’s condition. They have been a saving grace and I highly recommend their services to anyone in the area.”

Andrew P.

“It has been a great experience hiring caregivers from this organization. Everyone is so kind, compassionate and professional while taking care of my husband over the past couple of years. I would highly recommend Always Best Care to anyone looking for in home care services.”

FAQs About Senior Living Referral Services

There are many choices for seniors to consider when it comes to finding a community that will best fit their needs.

Independent living communities are for adults, generally ages 55 and older, who don’t need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), but are looking for a living environment that offers additional support, onsite amenities and socializing opportunities and activities.
A continuing care retirement community (CCRCs) offers multiple options along the continuum of senior living housing and healthcare spectrum. Many CCRCs offer independent living, assisted living, and memory care all on one campus. If care needs change, residents can transition within the community to the proper care setting. In most cases, in-home care is also provided.

Assisted living is a type of housing designed for people who need various levels of medical and personal care. Living spaces can be individual rooms, apartments, or shared quarters.

Residential care communities for the elderly, sometimes referred to as board and care homes, are responsible for providing assisted living services to residents in a homelike and community setting, allowing them to maintain independence while continuing to receive nursing level of care as needed.

Memory care is a type of long-term care geared toward those living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of progressive-degenerative dementia.

Nursing homes are senior living facilities that offer a high level of medical care. Like assisted living facilities, nursing homes have numerous amenities and help with basic activities. However, they also provide medication management and 24-hour supervision, leading to a more clinical environment as well as the highest level of care for individuals who don’t require hospitalization.

Always Best Care representatives can help match each client’s physical, emotional, and financial needs with the amenities and services of the local communities in your area. This is based on the use of comparative data that can help you determine the best option for you or your loved one.

Always Best Care works closely with the senior living communities in your area to gain extensive knowledge that is used to help seniors and their loved ones make an informed decision about the best option for them. This includes basic rent and care charges, services provided, and availability. Because Always Best Care is compensated by the communities, we provide senior living referral services that are provided at no charge to the client.

The transition into a senior living community can be a daunting task. Your spouse can play a huge role in your well-being. In many cases, especially assisted and independent living, spouses are certainly welcome to join their loved one. If this is something you are considering, it will be important to ask the community you are considering if your spouse is welcome to join you. Also, be sure to ask how costs are allocated for your spouse.

Moving into a senior community is based on when and how you and your family want to transition. While some seniors are more proactive in moving into independent living, others choose to remain home until they have care needs or other requirements that make moving into a senior living community the right decision.
