Senior Living Apartments Transition for Phoenix Seniors

Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging, after surveying 600 senior living organizations, concluded that senior living communities and care providers must expect and cater to the personal needs of residents by offering them options which go beyond the basics in order to be successful. Today, these retirement communities in Phoenix AZ for seniors offer numerous facilities which range from dining, laundry and basic housekeeping, to social gathering and activities, trips, transportation, and fitness programs. Many facilities also have amenities such as pools, clubhouses, spas, and movie theaters as part of their recreational offerings. Here are some options in senior living communities available to us in Arizona.

Independent Living Communities

Independent living communities usually allot apartments to its residents which may be studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom or even larger and is meant specifically for those who are able to manage their lives independently but want to be free from the hassles of maintaining a home all by themselves.

Assisted Living Communities

Assisted living facilities are specifically for those who need assistance with activities of daily living such as showering, dressing, eating, moving around the house, traveling to appointments and running errands but want to remain as independent as is possible. Some facilities have apartment-styled residences with scaled down kitchens while others have rooms. In some facilities provision for sharing rooms is also available.
