Senior Living Options

Senior Housing Options

There is a broad array of housing options available to seniors, from specialized facilities that provide round-the-clock care to independent living communities where people still drive on a daily basis. The names of the different types of housing options can sometimes be confusing, as the terminology can vary from region to region. The main difference will be in the amount of care provided for activities of daily living and for medical care. When researching a housing option, make sure it covers your required level of care.
