Independent Living: Independent Living, often referred to as Retirement Communities, Congregate Living or Senior Apartments, are designed specifically for independent senior adults who want to enjoy a lifestyle filled with recreational, educational and social activities with other seniors. These communities are designed for seniors who are able to live on their own, but desire the security and conveniences of community living. Some communities offer an enriched lifestyle with organized social and recreational programs as a part of everyday activities, while others provide housing with only a minimal amount of amenities or services.
Assisted living: A type of long-term care facility for elderly or disabled people who are able to get around on their own but who may need help with some activities of daily living, or simply prefer the convenience of having their meals in a central cafeteria and having nursing staff on call.
Skilled Nursing (Nursing Homes): Nursing Homes are designed for seniors who are in need of 24‑hour nursing care. Nursing facilities provide many of the same residential components of other senior care options including room and board, personal care, protection supervision, and may offer other types of therapy. Their onsite medical staff sets them apart from other types of senior housing. Nursing care is provided by registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN), and nurses aides at all hours of the day.
Home Care: Home care requires a team effort involving professionals, paraprofessionals, patients and their families. Care dedicated to promoting the physical and emotional wellbeing of the patient. Home care provides high quality, efficient, convenient and cost-effective health care in the homes of patients.
Rehabilitation: Rehabilitation provides in-patient therapy allowing residents to regain strength and stamina after a short-term hospitalization, long term care, or end of life care.
