Senior Living Options and Amenities

Senior living includes a variety of styles, features, and layouts. From resort-like communities to smaller, residential facilities, many senior living options are available to fit individual care needs, preferences, and budgets.

Choosing a Senior Living Community

How do you know what to look for in a senior living community? Key factors to consider include your aging parent’s needs, location, cost, amenities, and the type of care offered. An in-person or virtual tour provides opportunities to ask questions and get a sense of the community.

Cost of Senior Living and Paying for Senior Care

The cost of senior living varies depending on location, community amenities, apartment size, and how much assistance your loved one needs. Financing options are available to help pay of senior care, including Veterans benefits, long-term care insurance, reverse mortgages, and more.

Veteran Senior Care and Veterans Benefits

If your aging loved one is a veteran or a veteran’s surviving spouse, they may qualify for Veterans benefits that may offset the cost of senior care. Veterans Aid & Attendance is a benefit that can help pay for in-home care, assisted living, and memory care.

Helping Seniors Move and Adjust to Senior Living

Moving a loved one to senior living can be emotional and sometimes stressful. Planning ahead can make the move smoother. Hiring professional senior moving assistance and downsizing help may also reduce stress. Get tips to make your loved one’s transition to senior living easier.

Senior Health & Wellness

Healthy lifestyle choices lead to improved physical, cognitive, and mental health. Staying physically active, eating a balanced diet, preventing common accident hazards, and maintaining meaningful relationships can help seniors stay healthy and live independently longer.

Senior Safety

Senior safety is a priority for many families and caregivers. If your aging parents live at home, there are steps you can take to help prevent injuries and reduce fall risks. Learn how to keep your loved one safe while aging in place.

Elder Law and Legal Issues

Caring for elderly parents often goes beyond caring for their health — it may also mean protecting their assets and finances. As a family caregiver, you may be responsible for your aging parents’ finances and legal matters. Understand important caregiver and elder law issues.

State Licensing

So we’ve compiled a directory of assisted living licensing websites by state, where you can find regulation standards in your state as well as individual assisted living facility inspection summaries and violation histories.
