ASSISTED AND INDEPENDENT LIVING
Westchester and neighboring counties continue to have a wide variety of senior living communities and retirement residences to choose from so the options for you and/or your loved ones are many. But they are not all the same, especially when it comes to services, amenities and general environment. To help you maneuver through all the information and choices out there, a first step is to understand the language used to help you differentiate between senior living options when exploring the possibilities:
Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) accommodate the changing needs of residents. At a CCRC, an individual (or couple) may start off in independent living and then move into assisted living or nursing care if it becomes necessary. All the while, the person stays on one main campus which offers the continuum.
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 assistance with daily activities, nurses available 24/7 and wellness programs. Communities may even have indoor pools and other state-of-the-art equipment. 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 wellbeing: 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.
