Long Term Care Options

At the Caring Senior Service of Phoenix, we understand that deciding on long term care

for yourself or an aging loved one is not an easy decision. Making the right
choice requires some research into the different options available to you.
To help we have provided a brief description of the most common options available
as well as a few facts about home care.

  Nursing Home   

Nursing homes offer skilled nursing care given by a registered nurse and include
medical monitoring and treatments. Skilled care also includes services provided by
specially trained professionals, such as physical, occupational, and respiratory therapists.
A nursing home facility may be a good choice for people who require 24-hour
medical care and supervision.

  Assisted Living   

Assisted living facilities offer housing alternative for older adults who may need help
with dressing, bathing, eating, and toileting, but do not require the intensive medical
and nursing care provided in nursing homes.

  Independent Living  

The operative word at any independent living community is “independent.” For the
most part, residents are active seniors who are ambulatory and are able to complete
all of the activities of daily living without assistance.

  Non-medical Home Care  

 Non-medical home care focuses on helping seniors with the daily activities they need
to engage in to remain safe, healthy, and at home. In addition to assisting with daily
activities non medical homecare offers one on one companionship. A well
placed caregiver can help a senior continue participating in their favorite activities
such as gardening, baking or woodworking.
