Nursing Care :
Nursing Homes are a care option for seniors that need 24-hour healthcare and assistance with personal care, but don't quite need to be in a hospital. These homes for the most part can vary from a neighborhood setting, to a hospital-like environment, and have on-site medical professionals and professional staff. Nursing Homes generally provide an alternate residence for seniors that don't have home care as an option. Because each place is different and offer different services, contact Little Sisters of the Poor Center for the Aging first to see what care amenities there meet your expectations.
Independent Living :
Independent Living Communities are residential areas created for senior adults that want a living space that requires minimal upkeep and provide a community feel. Seniors that usually live there need little or no aid and wish to enjoy life with other seniors nearby. Some independent living communities have age restrictions while other independent living communities attract all seniors. Because certain communities offer specific services and amenities, you should consult with a Little Sisters of the Poor Center for the Aging representative to check out the features at this community.
