Every day during the next 15 years, 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65. That’s a lot of young new seniors. There are hundreds of thousands of people who are enjoying life at 85 and beyond.
Since the lifestyles of those who are 65 and over can vary to a large degree, there are a many different senior living options available.
Independent living is one of those options. It’s the ideal choice for those who are still active but would rather spend their time doing what they want, rather than maintaining their current home and mowing their own lawn. A community in which to retire, along with amenities that match their lifestyle with onsite dining options, exercise facilities, activities, outings and more.
Some communities that offer independent living are also continuing care retirement communities, which means they also offer assisted living and other levels of care. Spring Arbor gives your loved one peace of mind so they can age in place.
Assisted living is for those who need some help with activities of daily living, but do not require 24/7 care by medical personnel.
Alzheimer’s care is specially designed to assist those with dementia and other memory issues.
Skilled nursing care is for those who need around-the-clock care by medical staff. The state’s Department of Health Services regulates it. This is for seniors who need short-term or long-term care, rehabilitation or are suffering from serious and persistent health problems.
