Types of Senior Housing - Advice & Reviews
  • Apartments & Retirement Communities    Private, independent living in a senior complex of houses or apartments; may include assisted living option; may be "rent" or "life care buy-in"

  • Assisted Living    Rooms or small apartments in a larger complex; provides meals and housekeeping, help with bathing, dressing, but residents don't require medical assistance

  • Board and Care    A single-family house usually for 6 people; 24-hour attendant; more economical than assisted living but provides similar services

  • In-Home Support for Elders    In-home help with dressing, personal care, shopping, errands

  • Skilled Nursing Facility    24-hour medical care available, including short-term rehabilitation (physical therapy) as well as long-term care for people with chronic ailments or disabilities
