Assisted Living Communities

In most of the nation, assisted care could be considered independent living with added services to assist those who need hands-on care. Personalized care may include assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, showering, and toileting.

Some assisted living services are also provided in residential settings. In these settings, seniors receive either a private or shared room in a residential neighborhood home. Many assisted living communities also provide transportation to doctor’s offices, stores, and special events. Generally speaking, assisted living is more expensive than retirement communities but more affordable than memory care communities.

Memory Care Communities

Memory care communities are designed for residents with middle- to late-stage memory conditions, including Alzheimer’s and dementia. These facilities can be located in larger, assisted living-style communities or in smaller, residential settings. Many of these specialized communities have facilities established to enhance memory functions and decrease potential confusion for residents.

Activities focused on memory recall from past experiences are usually the staple of these settings. Candidates for memory care are usually individuals who are already residing in an assisted living environment who have begun to forget how to perform daily activities, wander into other people's rooms, or often get lost. Special licensing is required in certain states.

Nursing Homes

Nursing homes offer the highest level of senior care and requires the skilled services of physicians, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, or respiratory therapists. These facilities are mostly paid for by Medicare and Medicaid. A nursing home care facility is usually used more for a short-term rehabilitation stay unless the senior is on a Medicaid program.

Most seniors will never need a nursing home due to the increased services that assisted living and memory care communities provide. Private pay is rarely used in this care setting due to recurring cost ranging from $250.00 to $400.00 per day. Nursing homes are considered the most restrictive environments for seniors and special licensing is required in certain states.
