When Seniors and their loved ones begin researching senior living environments in the Chiefland FL area they will find the diversity of options has greatly increased over past years. Old notions of assisted living facilities and nursing homes have been replaced with new concepts of active living communities. The old focus was on providing Seniors with medical care. The new focus is on allowing Senior residents to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. The old notion of assisted living facilities has run its course and has been supplanted with options that complement the lifestyle of today’s Seniors, offering opportunities where Senior people meet with others for daily activities as well as live an independent life.
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. Senior living options now encompass assisted living homes, active senior communities such as senior apartments and retirement communities, and facilities offering memory care living and skilled nursing services. Another option is the Senior’s own home. With the availability of good in home senior care services some Seniors may decide that remaining right at home is the best living environment for them.
Seniors who choose to remain in their own home have many services available to them. OURSENIORS.NET can help these Seniors and their loved ones find the support services they need. These services may be called home health agencies, home health care providers, in-home nursing care or home health aide providers. OURSENIORS.NET recognizes that in many cases the caregiver may also be a family member who is providing loving home care. In these circumstances, we can help source senior day care or respite care that can give the family caregiver a much needed rest.
Many Seniors faced with having to make a senior living decision have grave concerns about losing their independence. They often feel they are about to relinquish control over their lives and handing it over to complete strangers. 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. Knowing this and working with OURSENIORS.NET to research the best senior options can allay these concerns.
For Seniors and their loved ones in the process of choosing a senior living environment OURSENIORS.NET provides some guidelines. First, it should be noted that the best senior living environments share these beliefs: Seniors should always be treated with dignity and respect, and they should be enabled to maintain and control active, independent lifestyles for as long as they are able. Second, all good senior living facilities, retirement homes and senior care homes should provide the following services:
- 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.
