Start Your Search

For most people, the process of finding senior housing is a new experience. So where do you begin? There are so many different options to choose from.

We recommend reading about the different types of senior housing. You will find senior care facilities ranging from those that are most affordable to most expensive. It will give you a good idea of what is available.

What if your loved one needs supervision or medical care? You can identify the types of care that offer the most supervision and highest level of care.

Once you determine the type of senior care that would be best for your loved one, you are ready to start looking for communities. Think about where your loved one wants to live.

  • Have they always dreamed of retiring by the sea?
  • Do they love to play golf?
  • Are they more of a city or mountain person?

You'll be able to find senior communities that specifically meet such needs…and that offer so much more like social gatherings, group outings, luxury accommodations, and much deserved rest and relaxation.

Next Steps

Now you can search for senior communities that are in the area where your loved one will want to live. At this point, you will want to start thinking about how much money you have to spend a month on senior care.

What if you are short of funds? We can help you find out how to pay for senior care. Maybe your loved one has a home that can be leveraged to pay for care. Perhaps they are considered low income and are eligible to apply for HUD-sponsored senior housing.

If your loved one has been saving for retirement they might be prepared financially to pay for senior care. That makes it easier for you. However, you still want to make the smartest decision about making that money go as far as possible with senior care.

Other Considerations

You are making one of the most important decisions of your loved one's life. So even if you are in a rush to find them a care facility or senior living community, try not to be too hasty. You want to do your research so you can choose the right place for them to call home in this autumn time of their life.

A final word of wisdom—the primary goal of any senior care center or community is to care for the seniors who live there. These facilities want to provide your loved one with the greatest quality of life possible. By choosing to give your loved one this opportunity to live in a safe and thriving community of other like-minded seniors is one of the best gifts you can give them.
