Lifestyle Options for Seniors

Seniors have a variety of options to serve their personal, medical, and physical needs as they age. Which option is right for them will depend on each person's individual preferences and health status.

Retirement Communities

  • Offers a variety of services for seniors all under one roof.
  • Offers a combination of personal care services, healthcare and housing, and a more complete continuum of care.
  • Retirement communities typically are paid monthly for their services, easing the burden for residents to relax and enjoy the benefits of retirement living.
  • Designed to increase and maximize independence, with the ability to provide supportive services in assisted living.
  • Care can be uniquely tailored to each individual resident to ensure that they receive help in the areas that they need it the most.
  • Offers a wide variety of activities within and outside of the community to engage residents, learn new hobbies and interests, and make new lasting friendships. Here is an example of one of our monthly activities calendars.
  • In a retirement community, residents are surrounded by people of the same age, allowing them to bond over shared or similar life experiences.
  • Chef-prepared meals are offered 2-3 times per day in most retirement communities, so seniors receive quality nutrition that is catered to meet the dietary needs of most residents.
  • Meals are typically served in the dining room at the same time every day, so residents have plenty of opportunities to dine with their friends and bond over a meal and conversation.
  • Retirement communities typically have staff on site 24 hours per day and are able to provide or call for assistance. 
  • Residents are checked on at least once per day.

Staying Home

  • Seniors remain in their own home where they are most familiar.
  • May receive Home Health Care Services that provide assistance with activities of daily living and some medical care.
  • With home health care, workers come to the senior's residence to provide pre-determined services with a medical need or condition on a routine basis.
  • Staying home and receiving home health care services is great for those who are equipped to live independently but struggle with a chronic medical or physical impairment.
  • While the senior is able to stay in their own home, they are typically left by themselves for long periods of time in between visits with their home health care providers.
  • There tends to be a lot of turnover in the home health care industry, so care providers are likely to change multiple times.
  • Seniors living at home are responsible for the daily maintenance of the home, as well as financially supporting the necessities of the home, including monthly bills and groceries.
  • In an emergency, the senior living at home alone would have to rely on a telephone to call for help or drive himself or herself to the nearest emergency room.
