Most of us have our own ideas about what senior living looks like. Many believe that “senior living community” is interchangeable with the term “nursing home,” but they are in fact two very different things. While many leading senior living communities do provide higher level healthcare services and assistance found in traditional nursing homes, they offer seniors so much more than simply age-related support.
Today, leading senior living providers focus on delivering an ideal senior lifestyle, complete with comfort, freedom and options. Often, it takes a family visiting a community to actually dispel the myths they’ve believed about a community lifestyle. When this happens, senior living communities usually surpass expectations.
