Happy seniors on a walk in the park

As your mom and dad get older, you may begin to notice some changes. Maybe they aren’t getting around as easily as they once did or maybe their memory isn’t as sharp as it used to be. This is not only a scary time for you, it’s also a scary time for your parent. You are likely struggling to balance your concern for your parents with the stress of helping to choose the right living option for them.

In order to help with this process, we broke down a few of the most popular senior living options below.

What is The Village Concept

The village concept links homes and businesses together to help seniors stay in their home as they grow older. This option is great for older adults who need help, but do not want to leave their homes. While the villages do not provide services directly to the residents, they act as liaisons to make sure residents get the care they need. The cost of this kind of care is relatively low in comparison to other senior living options.

What is a Residential Care Home?

A residential care home is a smaller facility that offers personalized care to its residents. Generally, a residential care home is able to care for fewer adults than other living options. Residential care homes are also known as personal care homes or adult family homes. This option is great for someone who wants more of an individualized approach to their care. This option is generally more expensive than a village concept but less expensive than other options.

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a senior care option that provides personal care, meals, bathing, dress, transportation, medication management and more. This option is good for older adults that live independently but require assistance from time to time. Typically, with a senior living option like this, staff are available 24/7 for any needs. The cost for this living option generally depends on how much help is required throughout the day and the type of living situation that is desired.

What is a Nursing Home?

A nursing home is a living option for those that do not need to be in a hospital but can’t be properly cared for at home. A nursing home will have nursing aids and skilled nurses on the clock 24/7. This living option is good for older adults with severe physical or mental illness. Nursing aids onsite will be able to help with meals, activities and offer health management support. The cost for this option will vary with the kind of care required.

Need Additional Space After Downsizing?

Downsizing homes is hard enough. A storage unit rental allows your mom or dad to still hold onto the pieces of furniture, holiday decorations and memories they care about, while not cluttering their new home. Lighthouse Self Storage has storage facilities throughout southern Florida, near many senior living options.
