There are so many different options for senior housing. This variety is great for meeting different levels of need. As you start to think about the next chapter of your life, how do you and your family decide which option is right for you?
What are my senior living options?
Each senior housing option is designed to meet different levels of personal and medical needs, provide specialized types of care, and preserve different amounts of independence. Here is a short guide to your senior housing options and how you can find your best fit.
Retirement communities are social environments where seniors can enjoy lots of activities. These communities function similarly to apartments for retired residents. They often have social activities and events like fitness classes and other recreational activities so that residents can relax and have fun. These aspects help make your retirement community feel like somewhere you belong.
If you are a senior who wants to stay active, healthy, and involved in your community, a retirement community might be a great option for you.
Independent senior living facilities are another great option for seniors. These communities are designed specifically for seniors who want to live on their own without the labor of daily chores and other types of maintenance that being a homeowner requires. For example, The Woodlands senior apartments include amenities like chef-prepared meals, cable television, libraries, multipurpose and game rooms, and much more. Independent living communities offer luxury amenities and great communities for affordable prices.
If you have minimal medical needs but would like assistance with some daily activities, in-home care may be a great option for you. At Fairport Baptist Homes, our Senior Options for Independence (SOFI) empowers you to remain in your own home while receiving support services for yourself and your family and friends.
In-home care services include house cleaning and yard work services, meals at home, assistive devices, bathing and dressing services, transportation, and so much more. We also offer you safety checks, emergency response systems, and mental health evaluations. We can also provide caregiver support and respite, financial and legal counseling, and long-term planning support.
Assisted Living Care
Another great option for seniors is assisted living facilities. Fairport Baptist Homes Assisted Living Community is excellent for seniors who can still live on their own but require more assistance, such as support bathing, transferring in and out of beds and chairs, getting dressed, and managing medications.
Seniors in FBH Assisted Living reside in spacious home-like settings and gather to eat meals together in a family dining area. They have access to many social, recreational, and spiritual activities, physical and occupational therapy, transportation to and from appointments, and so much more. Residents also receive assistance with medication management and on-site nursing and care support.
Skilled Nursing Care
Another option for seniors who need a higher level of support is skilled nursing facilities. This is helpful for seniors who can no longer live safely by themselves and may need round-the-clock care and medical supervision in addition to support with tasks like feeding, bathing, and dressing.
Skilled Nursing Care is similar to Assisted Living Care in terms of comfortable amenities and community. At Fairport Baptist Homes, seniors live in spacious home-like settings and gather to eat meals together in a family dining area. Like in Assisted Living Care, they also have access to many social, recreational, and spiritual activities, physical and occupational therapy, transportation to and from appointments, and so much more.
How do I know which senior living option is right for me?
There are so many different options for senior living that it might seem daunting to identify which option is best for you. Each senior housing option is designed to meet different levels of personal and medical needs and preserve different amounts of independence depending on how a senior is feeling. Deciding if you need short-term or long-term care can also help you narrow down which senior living community is right for you.
