Senior Living Explained


“Senior living” is a hot topic these days. As the baby boomer generation ages, more and more people are interested in finding the right place for their loved ones. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to the different types of senior living options available and what to look for when choosing one. Senior living is a place where seniors can live in a community that offers a variety of services and amenities to meet their needs. There are many types of senior living communities, including independent living, assisted living, memory care, and adult day care.


Senior Living Explained

Independent Living


Independent Living is the most common type of senior living. It’s geared toward adults who want to live on their own, but still, have access to assistance when needed. Independent Living communities are often more affordable than other senior living options.

Assisted Living

Assisted living provides a full range of services, including three meals a day. You can rely on assisted living to help with daily activities like bathing and dressing. They’ll also ensure medication management, transportation, and more.

Memory Care


Memory care homes provide a supportive community for people with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other forms of memory loss. The staff helps them live as healthy and fulfilling lives as possible by offering personalized care plans based on their unique needs. They also help keep them safe by providing 24-hour supervision, accessible emergency call systems, full-time security personnel and more.

Senior Apartments

Senior apartments are a great choice for seniors who want to live independently, but who also want the safety and security of having emergency response services on site. If you have an aging parent or loved one who is thinking about downsizing from their current home, senior apartments may be a viable option for them.


If your senior loved one needs help with daily tasks such as paying bills or taking medication properly, it’s important to make sure that they have access to care professionals at all times—and that means 24/7 access to care providers during the weekdays and weekends. This is why living in an apartment complex is so beneficial; there are always people around whom you can call upon in case something goes wrong while your loved one is living at home alone.


Senior apartments provide many benefits such as:

Adult Day Care

Adult daycare is a program that provides social, recreational, and health-related activities to persons who cannot be cared for at home because they require assistance with the activities of daily living. It is designed to allow these individuals to remain in their own homes while receiving the supervision and/or services they need.

Adult daycare also offers patients an opportunity to socialize with other adults in similar circumstances which can help boost morale and reduce loneliness. Additionally, it gives caregivers time off from caring for their loved ones so that they can attend to other important matters outside of the home such as work or errands, etc.
