Senior Apartments are buildings intended for use by people aged 55 and older.
They are not regulated by the state and are not staffed for care needs.
Looking for Socialization?
This setting is beneficial for Seniors who are looking for socialization to prevent isolation.
Residents are free to come and go as they please.
They also may still allowed to drive.
Has lawn care or snow removal become too much?
This may be a great option for you or your loved one as this is provided by the facility.
Utilize outside agencies:
People living in Senior Apartments can choose to utilize outside agencies for assistance with personal care. This may include home health services.
Senior Apartments require you bring your own furnishings.
This would typically include a bed, dresser, nightstand, etc. as well as your own linens, towels, toilet paper, paper towel, etc.
You may be offered one meal per day.
This will depend on the Senior Apartment Complex you choose. Otherwise, you are responsible for your own meals.
How do you know if this is the right type of setting for you?
If you are an independent Senior who is looking for socialization, freedom to come and go as you please, but no longer want to care for the lawn or snow removal, this may be a good option for you. Contact your local Senior Housing Advisor to learn more.
