The options for Seniors who are researching senior living environments offered in Bowling Green have greatly expanded and increased these past years. Old notions of assisted living facilities and nursing homes that conjured up scenes of confinement have given way to welcomed new concepts like retirement communities and other types of active senior environments. Today’s senior assisted living facilities are residences where Senior people meet with others for daily activities as well as live an independent life. Today’s senior living environments offer many diverse and individualized choices, including tailored options such as memory care living.
With the availability of good in home senior care services some Seniors may consider remaining right at home the best living environment for them. However, with new senior living concepts like 55 communities, and with the transformation of the assisted living facility, more and more Seniors are choosing an independent living environment outside of the home. Alternatives now include active senior communities such as senior apartments, condominiums, and retirement communities, as well as assistive facilities offering memory care living and skilled nursing services.
No matter which type of senior living environment you choose it’s important to remember that the best environments share these two basic philosophies: a Senior resident is always treated with dignity and respect, and each resident maintains an active, engaged and independent lifestyle as long as possible. Further, all good senior living facilities, retirement homes and senior care homes should meet some basic requirements. These include:
- 24-hour security and monitoring.
- Assistance with dressing.
- Bathing and toileting when needed.
- Help with nursing care and administration of medicine.
- Opportunities for recreation and social interaction.
- Access to local transportation.
When you or your senior loved one prefer the “home instead” choice but still feel a need for extra support, OURSENIORS.NET can help locate, vet and choose those in-home senior care services. These services may be called home health agencies, home health care providers, in-home nursing care or home health aide providers. In the “home instead” living environment, these are not the only care providers. In many cases the caregiver is a family member who is providing loving home care. In these circumstances, senior day care or respite care can give the family caregiver a much needed rest.
Seniors often express concern over any elderly care or senior living option because they fear the loss of their independence. This fear is misplaced. Most of the senior living options available today offer senior lifestyles that provide almost complete autonomy while offering the security of having senior care services close at hand when needed.
When remaining home instead is no longer possible, Seniors and their loved ones may ask, “How do we find and investigate assisted living facilities nearby?” “Are they properly licensed, and what services do they provide?” There are so many senior living and senior care options that the task of locating and vetting them is daunting.
