Senior citizens have many difficult decisions to make. Most are living on fixed incomes. Many have children and grandchildren that live out of their area. Some of us are independent and healthy; we just do not want to take care of our homes. We struggle with the decision to leave the home that is filled with family memories and happy times. The decision is difficult. We will all come face-to-face with that decision for our parents or ourselves.
You know how your health is and will know which form of Senior Housing you will need. You may choose to look at Independent Senior Living if your health is good and have no severe medical issues. You can live independently in a townhouse, apartment or condo. Most independent living communities have lawn care workers and have housekeeping services. Some communities allow a small pet for an additional fee.
If you do have health issues, the next best-case scenario is to find a home in an assisted living facility. Assisted living facilities can offer some in-home health care and assist with medications and personal hygiene needs. Assisted living allows you to choose a specific city, provide home nursing care and offers dining in a restaurant like atmosphere.
