(8)SENIOR LIVING

Assisted and Independent Living:

Coming off a very challenging 2020, especially within the senior housing communities, we are still seeing more senior living communities and retirement residences being built in Westchester and neighboring counties. There are more options – and they are not all the same. To help you maneuver through all the information out there, a first step is to understand the language used to help you differentiate between them when exploring the possibilities:
Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) accommodate the changing needs of residents. At a CCRC, 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 are offered in addition to help with daily activities, nurses available 24/7 and wellness programs. Communities may even have indoor pools and other state-of-the-art equipment. Know that not all assisted living communities provide Memory Care services, while others specialize in this care. Respite Care provides caregivers a needed break and the time to focus on 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. If important to you and your family, find out which communities offer one-week or extended stays.

 Nursing Homes & Rehabilitation:

After a three-day hospital admission, stays at a SNF will usually be 100% covered for 20 days for those on Medicare.
