Choosing where to spend your retirement can be so challenging due to the many options that are available. It can also be a hard choice based on how much money you have saved up. Here are some of the top retirement living options that you should explore, depending on what your situation in life is.
If you would still like to live in your home but have assistance with your day-to-day activities, home care is your best option. You remain entirely independent and get as much help as you need – from once a week to 24-hour care.
Assisted living is a good option for older adults who cannot safely live on their own, but do not require a high level of attention. Residents live in private apartments, but there is a 24-hour staff to help them. Meals are cooked and served in a central place, and housekeeping services are provided.
If you are going through transitions that result in memory loss, a memory care living option is your best bet. In this environment, you will participate in a variety of exercises that will help to enhance your memory. You will also get the support that you require.
Independent care is for individuals who are still quite active and do not need a lot of medical care. In this arrangement, the seniors live in fully- equipped serviced apartments. The sizes of the apartments vary, from single rooms to two or three bedrooms.
Nursing homes are best for seniors who require a high level of medical care. Skilled nurses and nursing assistants are present to offer any help that is necessary.
If you prefer to live in a more private and traditional community setting, then Residential care is a good option. In this case, several seniors live together in a private home and hire caretakers to look after them. The caretakers provide nursing care and assist with daily chores.
