Communication and knowledge are key factors when looking into senior housing options. It is important to get the information you need in order to make an informed decision. Many senior housing communities in Colorado Springs offer different levels of care and assistance for your everyday needs and wants. Are you looking to maintain your independence? Do you want to change your lifestyle or level of care? Do you require special assistance? It is important to know that senior housing can work for a variety of needs and most importantly, will cater to yours. Below are three of the most common types of living assistance individuals look for, and hopefully this helps you with the decision of if senior housing is right for you.
Independent living options in senior housing communities are made to fit an individual's needs. This option is for people who want to choose their lifestyle. Living independently lets you live in privacy while still having on call assistance. It gives you the choice to use the facilities resources such as engaging in activities or setting up a meal plan while still giving you the freedom to participate as you wish.
Assisted Living services give you the comfort of knowing there is care available for your personalized needs. This is for those individuals who can no longer live at home but still want to be active seniors. Maybe you need help preparing food or bathing? There are people to help with your needs while still allowing you to participate in a variety of housing activities.
Some senior housing facilities provide services to those in need of nursing care. This option will assist you, so you can get back to a level of functioning. Once you feel comfortable, you will be able to maintain your independence while knowing there are nurses available for you when functioning alone is not possible.
Each senior facility is different and offers its own levels of assistance, so it is important to discuss your needs and find the right place that fits you. Independent living, assisted living, and nursing homes are basic levels of assistance but remember that some senior homes offer specific service care including but not limited to Alzheimer's care, residential care, continuing care, rehabilitative care and short term care.
