Identifying your best living options short- and long-term

One of the biggest decisions elderly people sometimes face is whether to remain in their current home environment or to pursue a residential community. At Senior Advocate Services, we can assess and advise you on the best fit living choice based on your care needs as well as financial capability.

Aging in Place

The National Institute on Aging calls staying at home, “aging in place”. And while this may be the choice for you, there are many considerations that require careful planning such as:

  • What’s needed to make your home safe and accessible?
  • Will you need assistance with personal care, home chores, and meals?
  • How do you identify a reliable caregiver to support your needs?

We can help you understand what might be required to age in place independently and we partner with you and local agencies to make sure those requirements are met.

Senior Living Communities

There are many levels of care within different residential communities for the elderly—Independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care. All are tailored to your needs, but which one is right for you or your loved one. Some advantages to joining a senior living community include:

  • 24-hour personal care, medical assistance, and medication management
  • Nutritiously planned and prepared meals
  • Regular fitness and exercise classes as well as onsite physical therapy rooms
  • Memory care services

Senior living communities also provide a vibrant social life with an array of educational and recreational activities. We visit and evaluate facilities with your interests in mind so that we can present you and your family with the best options.

At Senior Advocate Services, we recognize that your needs evolve and change as you get older. We will assist you in creating a plan for both short- and long-term living options.
