SeniorHousingNet.com offers seniors and their loved ones senior living listings and resources. On our website you can find a community that is right for your situation, whether you are looking for 55+ Apartments or nursing homes. For instance, seniors who are healthy and active may be interested in 55+ Lifestyles (also known as 55+ Communities) and Independent Living Facilities. If you or your loved-one needs some personal assistance, on the other hand, you may want to check out assisted living facilities, Alzheimer's care/dementia care facilities, or in-home senior care providers. Seniors with medical dependencies may be best suited in nursing homes, and those with short-term medical care needs may be best suited in respite care. In-home care and adult day care are options for seniors who prefer to live at home, and continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) are unique senior housing communities that offer multiple levels of care that allow seniors to age in one location.
These are the most common terms used within the U.S., although senior housing terminology may vary from state-to-state. We advise you to always check with individual facilities for specific senior living services offered and we recommend personal visits and reference checks. Many types of senior living facilities are rental apartments for seniors, but you may also find some communities where homes are bought and sold. We understand there are many choices and that choosing the right senior housing facility is important, so make sure to take advantage of the Resources for Seniors on SeniorHousingNet. Also try our Senior Care Assessment Tool if you are not sure which type of senior care is right for you or your loved one and learn about the various Types of Senior Housing.
To search for senior living and senior care, simply type a location into the search bar and select the types of care you are interested in. For example, if you are looking in your city for low-income senior housing communities that offer some personal assistance, type your city name, select "Assisted Living" and "Low Income-Affordable", and then click "Search". From there you will see listings of communities who offer assisted care and have senior housing for low income seniors. When you see a community you are interested in, click on the name, address or photo to see more details.
