Why Live in a Care Community?
There comes a time when in-home care for the elderly just isn’t enough, and you need more advanced help. Senior communities will give you 24/7 access to professional care, and some even specialize in serving the needs of those suffering from dementia. With their help, you can regain independence without worrying about the more challenging tasks of daily life.
Care communities will also let you enjoy a more social environment than simply staying at home. You can converse with other seniors, make new friends, and engage in fun group activities. Having a close-knit social circle is important for a person’s mental and emotional health, no matter what their age.
What is a Care Community?
Care communities can have several difference classifications and go by different names depending on where you live. The most common are:
- Assisted Living Facilities or Residential Care Facilities
- Memory Care Assisted Living Facilities
- Residential Care Homes
- Nursing Homes
- Continuing Care Community
