|Supported Living Services |
Acute Rehabilitation Hospitals: Short-term hospitalization assistance for those with disablilities requiring skilled and professional services to achieve improved health, and productive functionability.
Assisted Living Facilities: Assisted living is designed for individuals who cannot function in an independent living environment but do not need daily nursing care. Assisted living communities provide personal care and support services, such as bathing, dressing, meals, and housekeeping, for people who need help with daily living activities as a result of physical or cognitive disability.
Continuing Care Retirement Communities: Long-term contracts that guarantee lifelong shelter and access to specified health care services for seniors. CCRC residents begin residence while thay are able to live completely independently, and, if they become sick or frail, the community is designed to provide a broad base of care-taking services to meet their failing health needs.
Independent Living Communities: Residential communities for active, older adults who are able to live completely independently who choose to live in an environment free from home maintenance.
