Your Assisted Living Opportunities in Brookfield
If you’re a senior, or the family member of a senior, and you live in Brookfield or elsewhere in the Greater Milwaukee Area, you have plenty of assisted living opportunities. Of course, not all of these opportunities are equal, but it’s important that you know what all of them are. Assisted living is not a “one size fits all” type of service. It is an intensely personal type of service. The best type of assisted living for your neighbour might not be suitable for you at all. With that in mind, just what are the various assisted living opportunities available to seniors in Brookfield?
Let us start by defining the term “assisted living”. Assisted living means having somebody available to you who can assist you in your life. A care provider who will help you take care of yourself, help you to get around, and who will help you to accomplish the various tasks of daily living. Assisted living is a service most commonly offered to seniors and to people who have a condition or disability that makes these tasks of daily living difficult or even impossible. It is a serious and compassionate service as well as a much needed one.
Most assisted living services can be categorized into two different types: assisted living communities and home care. Assisted living communities, such as nursing homes, retirement homes, and other assisted living facilities, provide the elderly and infirm a safe place to live along with (often) around the clock access to care and supervision. The intensity of care can vary from facility to facility as well as from client to client. For example, there are retirement communities in which each senior or senior couple has their own unit and, beyond routine visits from care workers and cleaning staff, these seniors are pretty much left to run their own lives. Such retirement communities often have a common space for activities and the like. There are also facilities that provide more extensive care, such as nursing homes, which specialize in serving residents who need more care and supervision.
Assisted living in your own home
Home care is a type of assisted living that is provided in the client’s own home. Some seniors prefer to stay in their homes and their situations are such that this is a practical and sensible choice. More and more seniors have this option to access the assisted living services they need. And this includes seniors in Brookfield.
