With the various living options available in a senior living community, we understand that it can get overwhelming. We’re here to break it all down and make it easier for you to make your decision. However, be sure that you have discussed with your loved ones about the lifestyle change that they will experience. It’s a new phase in life, and it can be difficult to transition for some of your loved ones. Now let’s get into the living options for your loved ones.
Active Senior Apartments
This allows residents to live the most independently. Housekeeping and transportation, as well as dining choices, are not included, though they can be added as extra services. Regardless, residents still get to enjoy a host of amenities, alongside a professional medical team on-site.
Senior Independent Living
This lifestyle essentially combines active senior apartments with extended services. If your loved ones are looking for an all-inclusive lifestyle without having to worry about everyday needs, this is the living option to go with. Apartments are fully equipped with a kitchen and laundry, and residents get to enjoy access to multiple medical and wellness networks in the community.
Supervised Independent Living
This living option is perfect for loved ones who still can be independent but require assistance in some areas such as taking medication and bathing. Each resident will be presented with a specialized care plan to tailor their experiences, and given the choice to select a variety of apartment floor plans.
Senior Assisted Living
This living option is specifically designed to meet the many needs of loved ones who require assistance in daily activities. If your loved ones are unable to take medications, eat, bathe and do other mundane tasks, a team of medical professionals will be on-site around the clock to provide help.

This living option is also great for loved ones who have undergone a surgical procedure and require professional care before heading home.
- Skilled Nursing
If your loved one is a veteran or a surviving spouse, he or she may be eligible for VA Aid and Attendance Benefit to help pay for skilled nursing.
The skilled nursing living option is essentially assisted living with more medical services included. Residents typically need an IV or ventilator and require assistance. Once the resident’s health and mobility are improved, he or she will move back home or to other living options. This is a popular living option for loved ones who have just undergone therapy or surgery.
