Senior Housing Definitions, Characteristics

Assisted Living

Assisted Living communities bridge the gap between 55+ independent living & nursing homes.

Memory Care

Memory care communities provide care to individuals diagnosed with cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia.

Residential Care

Residential Care Homes provide housing & supportive services for seniors who do not require 24-hour nursing care.

Skilled Nursing/Long-Term Care

Skilled nursing communities, also called nursing homes, are normally the highest level of care for seniors outside of a hospital.
