The choice of an assisted living facility or other senior living option, such as a skilled nursing facility, is a particularly important life decision. Your future happiness and health, or that of a loved one, depends on making the best possible choice. For some seniors, the best option may still be remaining home instead of selecting any organized senior housing option. However, the old concept of a care home, old age home or elderly care facility is now out of date.

One great advantage of a senior assisted living facility is that it can be customized to meet the needs of any resident. Numerous options for senior living communities are now emerging. These choices range from completely independent senior living in a senior apartment community to assisted living facilities that specialize in memory care.

Senior living and assisted living facilities may offer many different options and varying levels of service, but all good assisted living facilities share some basic qualities:

  • They treat residents with dignity and respect.
  • They keep senior residents as active, independent and engaged as possible.

Quality assisted living facilities and senior care facilities will always meet some basic requirements and standards. These basics include functions like 24 hour security and monitoring, help with daily activities like dressing, bathing or toileting if needed, basic nursing care and medicine dosing if needed. There should be good access to local transportation as well as opportunities for recreation and social interaction.

For those who prefer the “home instead” option to any senior living community, Finding Assisted Living and FindingAssistedLiving.com can help locate, vet and choose those in-home care services. These organizations may be called home health agencies, home health care providers, senior care or elderly care providers. They often provide the in-home nursing care or home health aides that make the “home instead” choice possible.

In many cases, the caregiver is not a paid professional but a family member. Finding Assisted Living can give family caregivers a much needed rest by locating trusted providers of respite care or senior day care.

When remaining “home instead” is no longer possible or desirable, Finding Assisted Living can help to locate the senior living community or assisted living facility that best fits your needs or those of your loved one. Today, there are numerous choices ranging from independent senior living communities or senior apartments to care homes and assisted living facilities that include memory care.

Making the right choice may be challenging; the senior community or assisted living facility must have the ability, the staff, facilities and licenses to provide all needed services. Concern over these issues and fear of losing personal independence causes anxiety in many seniors and their families. This fear is misplaced.

Today’s senior living options include choices like senior apartments, retirement communities and senior living communities that provide almost complete autonomy while placing senior care services close at hand when needed. If an assisted living facility is a better choice, Finding Assisted Living and its website, FindingAssistedLiving.com can help you sort through the process of choosing the best option for you or your loved one.
