Senior Care Options
Adult Day Care Centers
There are two types of adult day care. First there are adult day care centers which focus on social interaction with adults and older persons. The second type is called adult day health care (ADHC) providing adults with chronic medical conditions and/or disabilities that are at risk.
Hospice Care Facilities
Hospice care is more than a place of care, hospice is a unique kind of care for people with advanced illnesses. Hospice care is a specialized care that accepts dying as the final natural stage of life, neither to speed up the dying process nor postpone it.
Assisted Living Facilities
A typical assisted living facility resident would usually be an elder/senior citizen who does not need the level of care offered by a skilled nursing facility. Assisted living facilities provide more companionship and some assistance in day-to-day living.
Independent Living Communities
Independent living is simply any housing arrangement designed exclusively for seniors, generally those aged 55 and over. Housing can vary widely, from apartment-style living to freestanding homes. These communities are for seniors who need little or no care.
Continuing Care Communities
Continuing care communities are a combination of memory care facilities, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. CCRC's are owned by private companies and staffed to provide a "continuum of care". There are three basic types of contracts for care in a CCRC.
