  • Independent Living
  • These communities are best for those seniors who
    are active and capable of living a healthy life
    without assistance. People who live in these
    communities will have access to communal
    activities, chapels and special events.
  • Independent Living communities may consist of one
    or two bedroom, well equipped kitchens,
    appliances and all other required amenities.
  • Other facilities such as a library, workout room
    and 24/7 emergency assistance are also available.

  • Assisted Living
  • The amenities provided in assisted living are the
    same as that of independent living. But, they
    offer assistance to people who have difficulty in
    performing their daily activities such as serving
    meals, bathing, dressing, grooming and dispensing

  • Continuing Care Retirement Communities
  • Continuing Care Retirement Communities or CCRC
    offer complete facilities such as independent
    living, assisted living and expert nursing care,
    all under a single roof.

    who suffer from dementia. It provides social

    levels of dementia.

  • Nursing Homes and Skilled Nursing Facilities
  • Nursing Homes, and skilled nursing facilities
    usually referred to as nursing homes, offer 24/7
    nursing care to all those who need more intensive
    care than the care provided in assisted living

    that include single-family homes, town homes,
