1. Independent Living Home
  • "Independent living" refers to any housing
    arrangement specifically built for older people,
    often over 55. 
  • There are a variety of housing options, from
    apartments to luxury old age homes to
    single-family houses. The housing is more suited
    to the needs of senior citizens since it is more
    compact, simpler to navigate, and requires less
    upkeep and yard labour. Most communities provide
    a variety of facilities, events, and services for
    their inhabitants, even if they live on their own.

2. Assisted Living Retirement Communities
  • A modest amount of care is offered at a
    retirement community that offers assisted living
  • Seniors may remain in their own homes with the
    help of this sort of living arrangement (i.e.,
    apartments, condos, or single-family dwellings).

    particular condition may be offered in some
  • Diabetes and cardiovascular disease are a few of
    the most common ones. Keep in mind that assisted
    living facilities don't provide most healthcare
    services. Healthcare professionals such as
    dentists, hospice nurses, podiatrists,
    counsellors, and physical therapists will
    collaborate with these institutions.
  • Instead of being forced to move to a nursing home
    or inpatient facility, people may get specialized

3. Residential care home
  • These institutions cater to a few people and give
    individualized attention. 
  • Adult family homes or personal care homes are
    some of the other names. Those who need more
    personalized, home-like care might benefit from
    these facilities. They do their work by giving
    accommodation, food, and support with everyday
    tasks (ADLs).
  • The cost-to-benefit ratio is moderate. Most of
    the time, they're less expensive than traditional
    long-term care facilities like nursing homes.

4. Continuing care retirement community (CCRC)
  • For those who want to live in a retirement
    community where they may get the full range of
    aged care services, CCRCs are the best old age
  • They may be housed on separate floors, in wings,
    or in neighbouring buildings like garden
    apartments, cottages, duplexes, and mid-and
    low-rise structures spread out throughout a
    campus or in a single high-rise building.
  • The goal of the CCRC concept is to keep residents
    from having to move unless there is a change in
    their health care requirements.
