Deciding to Move Into a Senior Long-Term Care Facility
It can be difficult for some seniors to move from their homes and into a senior long-term care facility. They see retirement homes as a place for those who need full-time care and cannot live alone. Today’s senior living communities offer a vibrant retirement for seniors of all activity levels with a wide range of care programs, services, and amenities.
Some of the common reasons to move into a senior living community include:
- Reduces the cost of home maintenance and landscaping
- Increases socializing opportunities
- Offers transportation services
- Decreases the risks of isolation and loneliness
- Offers medical and therapeutic support
- An overall improvement in their quality of life
Senior long-term care facilities can provide different types of care, such as physical, speech, and occupational therapy, memory care, and rehabilitation therapy within the community. This allows you to stay close to home and receive quality medical care.
At Baptist Retirement Community, our long-term care facility programs give our residents a fulfilling retirement with fun social events, nutritious meals, and top-quality medical and therapeutic support. We designed our community to meet your changing needs without having to move to a different facility when your health declines.
Long-Term Care Facility Programs
The different programs provided in senior long-term care will vary depending on the community. When researching senior living communities, make sure they offer the type of services and amenities that support the type of retirement you are looking for. Here are just some of the programs provided in a senior long-term care facility.
Independent and Assisted Living Programs
Independent living programs give seniors the freedom and independence they want while being close to medical care and a community of friends and peers. They come with a wide range of homes and apartments with different floorplans and amenities, such as landscaping and housekeeping services, wellness centers, and a clubhouse for socializing with friends and family.
An assisted living program is for residents who need daily support to maintain their health and well-being. This can include memory care, assistance with daily living activities, and physical, occupational, or speech therapy.
Memory Care Programs
Memory care programs are for residents who need specialized dementia care. Residents stay in a secure residence with 24/7 support from registered nurses, therapists, and support staff. Seniors receive treatment based on their individual needs while staying in comfortable rooms. All while being close to a community center for socializing and life-enriching activities.
Short and Long-Term Skilled Nursing Care
Seniors who are recovering from surgery, a stroke, or a car accident can temporarily move into a skilled nursing care facility. The types of care they can receive include assistance with physical, occupational, and speech therapy, memory care, and short-term rehabilitation. Plus, they have access to plenty of social and life-enriching activities that promote a healthy mental state.
Long-term skilled nursing care is for seniors with chronic medical conditions that require 24/7 care and seniors with worsening dementia or cognitive decline. This program is typically for seniors over 80 or for those who suffer a sudden change in health, such as a heart attack or stroke.
Depending on the facility, other programs provided in senior long-term care include respite care for when at-home caregivers need time off for personal reasons. This type of program gives seniors the continual care they need while experiencing what life is like in a senior living community.
