Independent-living communities, often referred to as retirement communities or congregate-living communities, are specifically designed senior centers with the needs and interests of independent senior adults in mind. Such communities are planned and developed in an apartment- or condominium-like setting with 24-hour on-site supervision and care. Such being the case, most are age restricted and only permit elderly tenants who are of a certain age, usually 55 or 62 years and above. This age limitation also helps to foster a greater sense of community among the residents through shared likes and interests.
Assisted Living — the largest growing segment of all senior housing options — offers a "just right" combination of senior living and care. It’s a senior lifestyle that incorporates senior residential housing, personalized support services, and healthcare designed for the individual needs of seniors who would like help with daily activities, such as dressing, bathing, and grooming but do not require the level of skilled medical care provided in a nursing home setting. There are a variety of names for assisted living facilities, such as senior board and care, senior residential care, community-based retirement facilities, personal care, adult living, and adult foster care, however, the growing generic term is "senior assisted living".
Senior apartment living, a type of independent senior living, provides seniors with an independent lifestyle while offering a moderate level of help for seniors, such as daily assistance with essential necessities and services. Unlike standard apartment complexes, senior apartments are age restricted — usually starting at 55 or 62 years of age. That is, only those who have reached the age of 55 or 62 are permitted to live in the senior apartment facility. (The age restriction varies by apartment community.) The age limit allows this type of senior housing to cater their services specifically to the wants and needs of seniors while providing a community of others who are of similar age and shared interests.
Nursing and rehabilitation centers provide elderly residents with a high level of personalized services, including room and board, personal care, protection, recreation, supervision, and medical care. Nursing centers (also sometimes called a nursing home, convalescent home, skilled nursing unit (SNU), care home, rest home, intermediate care, or old folk’s home) and rehab centers are licensed and regulated by each state’s Department of Public Health. Many nursing centers have the ability to provide care to those with Alzheimer's. Those nursing and rehabilitation centers that are individually certified by either Medicare or Medicaid, or both, are subject to federal requirements regarding staffing and quality of care for residents. In the United States, nursing homes that participate in Medicare and/or Medicaid are required to have licensed practical nurses (LPNs) on duty 24 hours a day. For at least eight hours per day, seven days per week, there must be a registered nurse (RN) on duty.
Residential Care offers a "just right" combination of senior living and care in a small residential care setting. Many residential care homes are located in private homes that have been retrofitted to accommodate the elderly. Designed for the individual needs of seniors who would require help with daily activities, such as dressing, bathing, and grooming but do not require the level of skilled medical care provided in a nursing home setting. There are a variety of names for residential care such as assisted living facilities, such as senior board and care, senior residential care, community-based retirement facilities, personal care, adult living, and adult foster care, however, the growing generic term is "senior assisted living".
