55+ COMMUNITIES

Planned adult or active adult communities and 55+ communities are characterized by clusters of apartments and condominiums or single-family homes built 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. A Senior Real Estate Specialist can offer more insight into these options.

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. A Senior Real Estate Specialist can talk through these options with you and your family.

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 include special areas to care for seniors 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.

HOME HEALTH CARE

Home Health Care involves helping someone to recover from an illness or injury and is often provided after a person has had an inpatient stay or an outpatient surgery.  This service requires a doctor’s referral.  This is prescribed when a person is unable to get to follow-up appointments on their own or is not able to perform the basic recovery recommendations prescribed by their physician or surgeon. Home health care professionals are often licensed practical nurses, therapists, or home health aides. Most of them work for home health agencies, hospitals, or public health departments licensed by the state. The range of home health care services a patient can receive at home is limitless and because the services are medical in nature, Medicare, Medicaid and/or private health insurance may cover them.

HOSPICE & PALLIATIVE CARE SERVICES

Hospice Care is for people who have learned from doctors that they are not expected to recover from their condition. It’s about easing pain and helping families prepare for the end of life. Palliative care aims to ease pain and help with other problems if illness is serious but not considered to be life-threatening for now.
