Types of Long-Term Care

There are a variety of options today for the person in need of long-term care:

Assisted Living Facility
Housing facilities for people with disabilities, these facilities provide supervision or assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs); coordination of services by outside health care providers; and monitoring of resident activities to help to ensure their health, safety, and well-being.  Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person.  This residential care setting combines housing, support services, and health care for elderly individuals.

Continuing Care Retirement Community
A housing complex designed for older adults who are generally able to care for themselves; however, assistance from home care agencies is allowed in some communities, and activities and socialization opportunities are often provided.  Some of the characteristics typically are: the community must be age-restricted or age-qualified, residents must be partially or fully retired, and the community offers shared services or amenities.
