Choosing the Right Senior Living Apartments in Phoenix

Numerous changes in lifestyle and family environment may compel a person to opt for senior living communities in Phoenix AZ, whether it is to an independent living community, assisted living community or to a nursing home. But there are some obvious tell-tale signs which indicate that moving to one of the retirement communities in Phoenix AZ would be more advantageous. These include the inability to manage the upkeep of the home, assistance with routine tasks like eating, dressing, bathing and going to the restroom or management of medications.

There are many types of senior living communities in and around Phoenix AZ, depending on the type of facilities required.

  • Independent Living Communities - In independent living communities in Phoenix AZ, residents are in full control of their faculties and are able to independently carry out their everyday activities like eating, dressing and bathing.
  • Assisted Living Facilities - These facilities are also known as congregate housing and are meant for individuals who might need assistance with the daily activities. Each stays in a single apartment with emergency signaling devices. Services might include central dining programs, recreational activities, transportation, health and housekeeping are provided in communities of assisted living in Phoenix AZ.
  • Residential Care Facilities - Residential care communities are meant for those individuals who need only moderate assistance with personal care and are mentally alert and able to eat meals in a central dining hall, dress and go to the restroom without assistance. The senior living apartments in Phoenix AZ may be a studio or a one-bedroom apartment but may sometimes have shared rooms.
  • Continuing Care Communities - These communities are generally for people, more often couples, who are in need of different levels of care as they pass through different phases of life. Continuing care communities therefore maintain a fine balance between independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing home. Independent living care is provided as long as it is necessary and then the transition to the other types of living is made as the need comes.
  • Nursing Home - Nursing homes care for seniors in need of 24-hour supervision, rehabilitation programs or nursing care.
