55+ communities

Planned adult or active adult communities and 55+ communities are characterized by clusters of apartments and condominiums or single-family homes build around a core of services and amenities.  A governing body administers a set of covenants, codes, and restrictions to which property owners and renters are required to comply.  Residents can own their property and the governing entity deals with the policies of the community facilities, property requirements, as well as charges and assessments for an association of homeowners.

Independent Senior Living Communities

Independent Senior Living Communities (IL) are not licensed and offer a variety of services.  Some are affiliated with churches, schools, or other community programs. They usually have a minimum age requirement and rent from month-to-month. Medical care is not provided, but most will arrange for independent home health services if needed on a short-term basis.  Residents requiring on-going medical care need to make other arrangements for housing.  Independent Senior Living communities typically offer full or partial kitchens, some meals in a common dining room, housekeeping, paid utilities, laundry facilities, 24-hour staffing and private areas for tenant use.  Since these communities are not subject to the same regulations as licensed communities, they charge a competitive rate for rent and services.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living Communities (AL) are a popular solution for individuals who are no longer able to or who no longer wish to continue with the responsibilities of maintaining a home.  Sometimes residents need some assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, grooming, housekeeping, and medication monitoring.  Residents are free to come and go as they please, and they have access to in-house amenities such as hair salons and spas.  Assisted living communities are typically private pay and vary In price.  They are rented on a month-to-month basis, though some may require a lease agreement.  Apartments are small and tend to include a kitchenette.  Meals are provided in a common dining area, usually three times daily.

Skilled Nursing Facilities

Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) are known historically as “rest homes” or “nursing homes”.  Residents of these communities are typically unable to live independently and need more medical assistance than assisted living communities provide.  Skilled Nursing facilities offer 24-hour nursing care, assistance with bathing, feeding, grooming, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other medically necessary services.  A nursing care community can be a temporary arrangement, while someone is recovering from surgery or a stroke, or it can be a permanent solution if a person needs on-going medical care and/or supervision.  Levels of care in nursing communities can vary from unit to unit within the same community, depending on individual needs.  There is no age requirement for living in a skilled nursing facility, so adults of any age with chronic illness or injuries may reside there.

Memory Care

Memory Care is sometimes provided in a separate section of a Skilled Nursing Community that is devoted to patients with dementia, while others are stand-alone communities.  Some Continuing Care Communities snow include special areas to care for senior with Alzheimer’s or dementia as well.  Such areas are typically secured, requiring codes for access in and out, which helps safeguard the residents who are apt to wander.  Since all specialized units differ, it is important to ask questions and tour the entire community, to get a feel for the overall care provided and the services offered.

Continuing Care Retirement Communities

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) allow for residents to have multiple living options as they age.  The level of care to be stepped up as needed – often at an additional cost and a different location but within the same campus.  Sometimes there is an entrance fee and sometimes it is a month-to-month rent schedule.  Each community is different.   A Life Care contract, sometimes referred to as an “extensive care plan” is similar to Long-Term Care insurance.  It stipulates that the senior will remain in the community for the rest of his or her life (excluding acute care), with no cost increase except for normal, yearly inflation.  It is important to ask about their payment options when visiting these communities.
