As we age, we can acquire health and physical issues that can impact our ability to live independently. In such situations, living at home—especially alone—might not be the safest option. As part of our continuing effort to help our residents maintain maximum independence with dignity and care they need as they get older we offer an affordable alternative to nursing home placement–but one that ensures our residences provide an ideal level of 24/7 care for residents at all levels of ability and health at price points that make home care affordable for everyone who needs it.
At a senior living facility, older adults can make new friends and develop new relationships.Many have the opportunity to meet old friends that they might not have seen for a long time as well!
The types of assisted or independent living communities include assisted living facilities like those at www.carltonseniorliving.com/community/fremont/ which are also known as residential care facilities for seniors; retirement communities and assisted living homes which give housing and care services to seniors on a resident-by- need basis and support residents in becoming as self-sufficient as possible in their own residence for as long as possible by offering opportunities for socialization with other residents and planned activities to preserve mental acuity and physical well-being or provide greater amounts of support such as 1:2 staff assistance in certain areas of the living space vs. a traditional senior apartment home where less help is offered to the independent elderly adult(al) but often in a much more community centric environment that is conducive to promoting interaction among neighbors and locals alike.
A living environment for older adults, such as a 55+ residential complex, often offers social support and shared activities that can ease feelings of loneliness and reduce the burden on family caregivers.
Some people are concerned about how they can remain a part of a neighborhood and community after they retire from their jobs and become senior citizens; thus, a residential retirement home is a very attractive alternative to the large level of care required by a long-term care hospital and/or an Alzheimer ‘s day care situation, which typically only focuses on curative nursing care or dementia care, meaning their focus is on getting the patient as healthy as they can as quickly as possible regardless of any lifestyle adjustments that may need to be made to make daily life much more manageable and comfortable (learn more about senior living community with memory care here).

Thus, a person can have a higher level of autonomy and respect within a normal level everyday work environment and remain mostly in control of how they spend their day instead of with few exceptions having little input as to how they are to be cared for. A healthy aging plan helps ensure a person’s ability to age safely and comfortably in the proper environment—especially as their needs change over time—which may include medical and physical care, mindful and social opportunities, engaging activities and a price suitable to their budget.
