Assisted living communities are an excellent option for seniors who may require more day-to-day assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) but wish to remain as independent for as long as possible. Your loved one will receive support with daily living and basic care in a homelike or apartment setting. They will also receive meal service, housekeeping, transportation, and apartment maintenance. Assisted living communities offer all of the benefits of an apartment-style home with the care required to keep your senior healthy and safe and without the responsibility of daily chores or upkeep.Learn More
Memory Care communities are a specific type of senior living designed to meet the needs of individuals having dementia. Memory Care communities specialize in helping individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy Body, Fronto-temporal, vascular and other types of dementias. Residents in these communities are cared for by specially trained staff, and care is provided in a secured environment. Residents live in either shared or private apartments. Our Care Advisors can help you determine which communities you may want to consider depending on where on the spectrum of memory issues your senior currently is. Please know that your senior with early onset dementia and non-exit-seeking behavior may not yet need placement in a memory care communityLearn More
Independent living communities are designed for seniors age 55 and older. Individuals live in their own apartment or house, but have access to amenities such as housekeeping, social activities, dining, transportation, and more. Note that independent living communities do not typically provide supervision or medical care, but they may offer these services at an additional cost.Learn More
Care homes—also known as adult family homes, board and care homes, residential care homes, or personal care homes—offer services similar to many larger assisted living and memory care communities, but in a smaller, more home-like setting. These homes are usually located in residential neighborhoods. They often have caregivers living on-site and can provide 24 hour care, when needed. Most care homes in Northeast Florida have 6 - 8 residents. Care homes are a great alternative senior living option for more fragile residents and for those looking for a more intimate setting, higher staff-to-resident ratio, and home-cooked meals.Learn More
Nursing homes are facilities that have skilled licensed nurses and nursing assistants available 24-hours a day. Nursing homes may be appropriate for seniors who require extensive medical care and supervision, such as severe diabetes, breathing issues requiring 24 hour medical support, extreme obesity, or have wounds and pressure sores. It’s important to note that most seniors don't require this level of care and don't need a nursing home setting.Learn More
