AGING IN PLACE SERVICES

Remaining in one’s own home and community – safely and independently as you get older – is referred to as Aging in Place. Often times, assistance and/or other services are needed to do so. Aging in Place may also be appropriately referred to as Living in Place. Aging in Place Services are grassroots organizations, run by area residents, that help older adults stay in their homes. Types of services they may provide include: cultural and social activities; referrals to health care providers and tradespeople; transportation to shopping (please also refer to Transportation Services on page 30), personal care and medical appointments; health and wellness programs. Many of them also welcome volunteers.

SKILLED NURSING & REHAB – IN PATIENT / NURSING HOMES

People are often not ready or able to go directly home when discharged from the hosptial. Perhaps it’s a medication issue or inability to manage stairs, resulting from hip or knee replacement surgery. At a skilled nursing facility (SNF), a doctor supervises care, there’s physical therapy along with many other services. After a three-day hospital admission, stays at a SNF will usually be 100% covered for 20 days for those on Medicare.
For those needing long-term skilled nursing care, nursing homes are an important and available option, with several described below:

SENIOR LIVING / RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES

Senior living and retirement residences are an important part of Westchester and neighboring areas because they help those looking to age in a dedicated community. Below are terms that would be helpful to know when exploring the possibilities:
Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) accommodate the changing needs of residents. Someone may start off in independent living and then move into assisted living or nursing care if it becomes necessary. All the while, the individual stays on one main campus offering all the above.
Independent Senior Living refers to apartment-dwelling in a senior community. Residents live independently and may be offered services such as meals and housekeeping.
For those who need some help, there is Assisted Living. Meals, recreation, outings, and other programs would be offered. There is help with daily activities, nurses available 24/7 and wellness programs. Keep in mind that not all assisted living communities provide Memory Care services.
Respite Care provides caregivers a needed break and the time to maintain their own health and well-being: for themselves and for their loved ones. Hired caregivers can come into the home to provide respite for short or long periods of time. Alternatively, many assisted living residences provide respite care as well. Ask these communities if they offer one-week or extended stays in their communities.
