Senior Living Options

Senior Living

Today there are innumerous options for seniors looking for housing.  There are the basics of Independent Living where you may be independent and choose to live in a villa, mobile home, apartment or shared accommodation.  Some of the Retirement Centers offer Independent Living with some amenities such as housekeeping, laundry and linen service, meals, scheduled transportation and more.  There is also Assisted Living offering assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, dressing, toileting and more; all with the same amenities of independent living.  For those afflicted with Dementia  and/or Alzheimer’s there is Alzheimer’s Facilities/Memory Care Units which have all the assistance of Assisted Living and the amenities of Independent Living but completely geared towards the memory impaired population.  Some of these Centers will be secured (locked) living so that the resident cannot access an outside door with out supervision, therefore keeping them safe.  Furthermore, Nursing Homes are for our population that requires 24 hour a day care and/or supervision.  This type of facility can provide more acute care than the Assisted Living facilities that cannot under our Florida State guidelines.

In addition to the above, Respite Care is available at most Retirement Centers to offer the caregiver a break, or if the caregiver needs to travel and have a safe place for their loved one.  Respite Care offers the same services and amenities as the Independent Living and Assisted Living, just on a temporary basis.  This may also be available in Nursing Homes.  Likewise, Adult Daycare services are provided for those seniors that live at home and need a place to go during the day for activities, supervision, meals and more while the caregiver is working and/or out of the home, or just for socialization.  Also available for seniors is Skilled Nursing Facilities which are geared towards rehabilitation.  Most seniors are here due to illness or injury and are with a team of professionals such as physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists.  These are generally located in Nursing Homes in a separate section of the facility.
