Senior Assisted Living: The Basics
Many (though certainly not all) seniors could use a little assistance in their lives. Whether this assistance is a simple as a little help with errands, chores, and housekeeping, or as involved and important as help with mobility issues or eating, there are a lot of options out there for seniors. But picking the right one can be difficult. Seniors in Newport Beach, Fountain Valley, and the surrounding areas should consider senior assisted living.
Recent decades have seen the senior assisted living industry grow significantly in terms of the number of people working within it. But the senior assisted living industry has also had to diversify. The senior demographic in Fountain Valley, as in throughout the country, is varied and diverse. Seniors have different needs and wants from each other. As a result, senior assistance has to be varied as well. “One size fits all” won’t due. Given this, what are the various senior assisted living options that seniors have in Fountain Valley?
Senior Assisted Living in Fountain Valley
Senior care facilities come in many different forms. There are different types of senior-specific residences that all differ from one another to some degree. There are retirement homes, independent living communities, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. Some of these have no specific health care aspect to them. These independent living communities simply provide seniors with a place to live where housekeeping and landscaping are taken care of for them. Other communities are specifically designed for seniors who are significantly limited in their abilities to take care of themselves. These nursing homes tend to have many care workers and perhaps even nurses and doctors on site. Assisted living communities fall somewhere between these two; they offer health care and assistance like nursing homes do, but allow for as much freedom as possible as retirement homes do.
