When it’s time to search for senior housing, so many choice are available, from independent home care to assisted living, from affordable to luxury apartments.
If you feel a bit engulfed by all the options, just learning what all of your choices are can help you decide what the right senior apartment is for you or a loved one. Here are some main things you need to consider for moving into a senior-friendly apartment:
Usually, senior apartments aren’t just targeting the demographic, but limited in who can live there. In general, they have two different age restrictions:
55 and up: For this, 80% of the apartments in the building must have at least one resident 55 or older. There can be someone in those apartments under 55, and the other 20% of the unit can be rented out to anyone.
62 and up: These are far stricter. All r occupants must be 62 or older, without exceptions.
These communities have a vast range of recreational activities and social activities and are designed for independent seniors who can live on their own but want to be part of a community. They offer little or heath services, such as on-site pharmacies or nursing care, but often have a variety of services on the campus, such as laundry facilities, transportation or cafeterias. Some independent living complexes have constant planned events, such as socials, group outings and exercise classes, and others offer some activities.
The good thing of there being such variety is that you can find whatever you’re looking for. Want a peaceful retirement? Find a community apartment without a lot of activities. Want non-stop activities? You can find that also. Find a location, you can easily walk or get a bus to wherever you need to go. If your health is good, an independent living apartment can offer anything you’d want.
These stop short of being nursing homes while still combines housing and healthcare. If you or a loved one has difficulty with daily living, like bathing, grooming, or medication, but is still able to mostly function day to day, this might be the correct choice. They also often include meals, housekeeping, and laundry services, meaning that you have to worry about far fewer tasks
Of special note for who is looking for assistance with medications. There are different rules and regulations by state, so what assistance they can provide will vary greatly. If you are generally healthy but only require assistance with routine daily activities, assisted living communities are ideal for you.
