are two types of living arrangements available for your loved
The first, a Private Assisted Living or Care Home, is one of
the living arrangements available to senior citizens who cannot
comfortably live alone. These care homes are licensed private
homes that can house anywhere from 3-10 people. Private care
homes differ from the larger assisted living facilities or nursing
homes in that the ratio of caregivers to residents is less.Their
meals are homecooked, nutritious, and are served at the dining
room table. Most importantly, someone is there with your loved
one 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The second type of living arrangement option for your parent
or relative is referred to as an Assisted Living Facility. First
off, these facilities, also licensed, tend to be larger in scope.
Multiple studio-like living quarters, a general eating area
where nutritious meals are served and a larger activity area
is available. They also have some type of monitoring system,
be it personal or electronic, available at all times.
Either type of residence will provide you and your loved one
with the satisfaction that you've devoted the proper time and
consideration to the decision at hand!
