There are several types of housing and care options for seniors. AZ Senior Home Finder is familiar with many of these Homes and Facilities and we understand what options of care each offer. Specifically,
These communities are geared for the independent senior who are self-sufficient and not in need of hands-on care. They often offer an abundance of amenities that may include; meal plans, housekeeping services, organized social activities, wellness programs, transportation, swimming pool/spa, clubhouse, library, beauty salon/barber shop, fitness room,and patrolled security.
Assisted Living Homes and Facilities are for people needing assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL), but do not require the constant, skilled care provided at a Nursing Facility. Assistance with medication, ADL's, meals and housekeeping are provided along with entertainment and transportation. The State licenses Assisted Living in two categories, Homes and Facilities. Homes are licensed for 10 or fewer residents and Facilities are licensed for 11 or more residents.
This type of Assisted Living provides a secure environment, with staff that has additional training in the care of persons with dementia. Homes are thoughtfully designed to provide support to the unique needs of the residents including memory support that promotes quality of life, meaningful engagement and family satisfaction. These facilities are licensed as Directed Care by the State.
Licensed Skilled Nursing Facilities provide the highest level of medical care for persons who are not able to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL) skills and require 24-hour monitoring and medical assistance. Residents may suffer from debilitating physical or mental conditions and may be bedridden, wheelchair-bound or have medical needs that require daily skilled nursing care. Skilled nursing can also be used for acute, short stays after a hospitalization.
