Making a successful transition to any assisted living facilities and senior care lifestyle is not a simple task. The future health and wellbeing of your loved ones, or yourself, may well be at stake. Many retired people prefer to remain in their home instead of choosing one of the many senior housing lifestyles now available. However, the old concept of a home health care, senior living or assisted living facility is now out of date. Senior assisted living options now include assisted living homes, senior apartments, retirement communities and respite care, as well as, assisted living facilities and skilled nursing facilities.

With so many choices available, it is difficult to know what is best for the person concerned. Senior condominiums, senior apartments, and retirement villages offer completely independent living while assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, home care services and nursing homes offer various degrees of help with daily tasks. For those who choose to remain home instead of entering a new community, in-home care and senior service options can provide extra years in a much-loved house.

Most people face life-transition issues only once in a lifetime, and no one person can be familiar with all the choices and issues that must be faced. The challenge of picking the best senior service living, elder care or in-home care option may seem overpowering, but there is help!

First, you should realize that all good independent living, assisted living facilities, nursing homes and other senior service living options share at least two characteristics:

  • They treat each resident or client with dignity and respect
  • They maintain an active, engaged and independent lifestyle as long as possible

Consider the variety of senior service and senior care alternatives now available:

  • Senior home care, home care services and in-home care
  • Skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, care home, assisted living facilities, and convalescent homes
  • Senior living communities, retirement communities, 55+communities, senior apartments and senior condos

It is understandable that you, your family or loved one might have questions about entering any senior service living environment. After all, you do not want to sacrifice any of your independence! This fear is misplaced in today’s world; today’s assisted living facilities offer a variety of care levels that allow residents to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. They provide the security of having senior services close by and, at the same time, having the greatest possible independence. Retirement home, senior apartments and 55+ communities offer active, rewarding lifestyles that may well be more satisfying than previous homes. But no single person can investigate all the options and choose the best for your special circumstance.
