What are My Options for Senior Care?

By Larry Levine, 9:00 am on

As we grow older, we are faced with many different obstacles. Frailty, illness or memory can cause difficulty in our daily lives. Whether you are dealing with these concerns yourself or caring for a loved one, you may be considering senior care options.

Each elderly adult has different care needs. Some need help with activities of daily living such as cooking, cleaning and medication administration, while others struggle with an illness or immobility, that inhibits their abilities to function and they require medical attention more frequently. No matter what your needs entail, there are many senior care options to consider.

Nursing Homes

When the need for long-term medical care arises, the transition into a nursing home or senior care facility could be the solution. For seniors who struggle with a disease or physical condition, staying in a nursing home means they will always have someone to offer assistance. These facilities provide daily meals, medical care, nursing staff and a room for the resident.

Assisted Living

Assisted living can be the ideal option for those who are looking to downsize their home and require additional care. These centers combine independent living with a senior community and in some assisted living centers the staff is capable of helping with medical needs.

We know that nine out of ten seniors would prefer to remain in their home as they age.
