“Independent living” is a phrase used for a wide variety of living situations, which can cause some confusion. At a glance, there are some similarities with most independent living situations, but there are some distinct differences to take into consideration.
Personal Care Home – Residences that provide shelter, meals, supervision, activities, and assistance with personal care tasks, typically for older people, or people with physical, behavioral health, or cognitive disabilities who are unable to care for themselves but do not need a nursing home. Offers housing, meals, and assistance with medications and personal care tasks.
Assisted Living – All the same things as a personal care home, but also provides additional skilled health care services to supplement personal care. The idea of these is that as their health care needs increase, they will not need to relocate to another senior living facility. Assisted living facilities come in two types of living situations
Independent Living – The goal of any independent living is to allow a resident to receive support services and remain as independent for as long as possible while enjoying wonderful chef-made meals and planned outside activities. There are many lovely places available should you want to rid yourself of owning a home. Golden Age Senior Placement can also help families to stage and sell their homes.
Alzheimer’s & Memory Care – A form of long-term skilled nursing that specifically caters to patience with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other types of memory problems. These memory care units provide 24-hour supervised care within a residential facility. These caregivers are skilled and schooled in these types of patients and are able to redirect them should the need arise.
Important Notes: Personal Care Homes and Assisted Living Facilities are categorized as either Type A or Type B:
In a Type A facility, a patient must be able to evacuate the building within 12 minutes should an emergency occur. Type A facilities prefer patients to leave should they become bed-bound and not be able to evacuate themselves or follow directions.
In a Type B facility, they will be taken care of by staff should an emergency occur. Type B facilities allow patients to age in place until the end.
