Types of Adult Care & Housing
Our team will work hand in hand with your family to find the best care for your loved one that suits their needs. We have relationships with all of the following types of adult and senior care facilities, and will expertly guide you to the one best suited for your individual situation.
Adult Family Homes
Adult family homes are regular houses in residential neighborhoods that have been modified to accommodate the needs of adults and seniors who are unable to care for themselves. They provide private or semi-private rooms, private or shared bathrooms, home-cooked meals, medication management, laundry and other care for up to six residents in a family-like setting. This option is ideal for disabled adults or those that need in-home care on a daily basis.
Assisted Living Communities
Assisted living communities are for adults and seniors who do not require 24-hour care, but may need some help with daily tasks. Facilities can range from shared rooms to private apartments with kitchenettes, and most have shared dining and recreation areas to create a sense of community. Residents can receive assistance with medication, bathing, dressing, transportation, etc. Meals and housekeeping services are also usually provided.
Alzheimer’s/Dementia Care Facilities
Alzheimer’s and dementia care facilities offer specialized care for people living with cognitive and memory issues. In addition to providing assistance with daily tasks and medication, these facilities are thoughtfully designed to give residents independence while also ensuring their safety. They may have color-coded hallways or other visual cues for easy navigation, and most have secure doors so that no one wanders off. Many also offer engaging enrichment activities such as music therapy.
In-home care allows people to remain independent by providing assistance with daily activities in the comfort of their own home. In-home caregivers might come to their house to cook meals, help with bathing and dressing, assist with mobility issues and medication management, provide transportation or take care of shopping. If in-home care is ideal for your loved one, we’ll guide you to an agency that provides high quality in-home nurses and completes background checks to ensure excellent care.
Independent Living/Retirement Communities
Independent living communities (also called retirement or senior living communities) are for older adults who are able to care for themselves and are seeking maintenance-free homes designed with their needs in mind. These may be apartment complexes, condominiums, townhomes or neighborhoods of stand-alone, one-story houses. They often feature shared recreation areas or clubhouses, and offer organized activities and opportunities for socializing with their peers.
Continuing Care Retirement Communities & Nursing Homes
Continuing care retirement communities combine the services of various facilities so that residents may continue to stay there even as their needs change. These facilities offer assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing care. They are ideal for seniors who want to stay in one place as they age and for couples requiring different levels of care. These communities are often the most expensive option and are difficult to get into because of the breadth of services they offer.
Specialized Care Facilities
Specialized or skilled nursing care facilities are for adults and seniors who require round-the-clock medical care. Sometimes these facilities are called convalescent homes. Some residents may stay for a short time while they recover from surgery or an injury, while others may stay indefinitely to receive assistance with a chronic health condition. These facilities are staffed by nurses and doctors and often provide physical and speech therapy in addition to medical care.
Hospice & Palliative Care
Hospice and palliative care provide specialized assistance, support, and end-of-life care for a person with an advanced illness. Both focus mainly on symptom and pain management and emotional support for both the patient and their family. Hospice care typically begins in a patient’s home to help ease the stress of this hard time, while palliative care is initiated at a hospital or other healthcare facility so the ideal care can be carried out at any time for the patient.
