• Dining: Assisted living facilities usually have restaurant style seating with daily options to choose from.
• Activities: If your loved one has an active life style, assisted living facilities have many activities to choose from. Some examples include:
• Church Services

• Nursing and Wellness Staff on premises

• Fitness Programs.
• Laundry rooms available on site
• Costs: Facilities charge a one time community fee. This fee covers getting the apartment ready for a new resident, i.e. carpet, paint, appliance upgrades.
RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME
Residential care homes, also known as board and care homes, are located in residential neighborhoods.
Caregivers at these facilities provide their residents with home-cooked meals and assist with activities such as medication management, grooming and hygiene and mobility.
Many reasons could make a residential care home an option for your loved one, for example if they: Want a place with fewer residents, want the privacy of a bedroom, prefer a more relaxed, home-like environment

Memory care is a kind of specialized care for people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Communities typically feature secure environments where staff can closely monitor the health of the residents. You'll also find programs, activities, and events that are designed to help memory care residents work on their cognitive abilities, while also getting to enjoy passions and hobbies. Staff typically are specially trained to provide the quality care needed for seniors with memory loss.
Respite care provides temporary relief, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of caregiving a sick, aging, or disabled family member. Respite care can take place in your own home, at day-care centers, or at residential or nursing facilities that offer overnight stays. Whether it’s for just a few hours a week or an extended vacation, seeking respite care can help ease the burden of family caregiving and help to relieve stress, restore your energy, and promote balance in your life. It can also prevent you from becoming exhausted, isolated, or even burned out. Respite care can benefit the person you’re caring for, too, providing them with variety, stimulation, and a welcome change of routine.
