What Are the Different Types of Senior Housing?

As we age, finding the right living situation can become a daunting task. The terminology alone can be confusing. Here is a brief overview of the different types of senior housing available to help make the decision process a little easier.

Aging in place is an option for those who wish to remain in their own home. This type of living situation allows seniors to maintain their independence while still receiving assistance with daily tasks as needed. Independent retirement communities are another option for those who are able to live independently but would like access to social activities and amenities such as transportation and meal services.

Assisted living is a good choice for seniors who require more assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and medication management. Nursing homes provide 24-hour medical care for those who require it, while memory care facilities specialize in caring for those with dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

Finally, adult family homes offer a more intimate living situation with a smaller number of residents and a family-like atmosphere. Each type of senior housing has its own unique benefits and is suited for different individuals based on their needs and preferences.

Peach Tree Retirement Center is voted the best independent retirement community in Yakima Valley, and many seniors in the local area choose to make it their home.
