Assisted living vs. Nursing Homes: Which Is Right For You?

Assisted living vs. Nursing Homes: Which Is Right For You?

Aging is as individual as you are; everyone ages differently and at a variable pace. Needs of the senior members of our society vary significantly, depending upon several factors, such as social, economic, level of health and fitness, proximity to family and relatives, cultural and ethnic background, marital status, and several others. By the time you reach the life stage at which your children are grown, most of your responsibilities discharged, you find yourself at a very different place than where you were. You love your independence but are weary of the chores involved in taking care of your home. Perhaps you find yourself isolated and alone, with or without your partner. Social opportunities may be few, particularly if family and friends are far away. Loneliness leads to depressed feelings and personal neglect. Being part of a community in which you feel surrounded by caring people who share your cultural way of life, of having the advantage of assisted living customized to your needs is where Beverly Hills Carmel steps in to make your life simpler, and to enrich it with the opportunities to participate in a community as actively as you wish.

Assisted Living vs. Nursing Homes

An assisted living home is defined as a long-term care option that combines housing, support services and health care as needed. Those who benefit from assisted living are seniors who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management, bathing, dressing and transportation. It allows a senior to live independently while under helpful supervision of trained faculty and staff. 

However, for long-term or short-term rehabilitation, or for those with significant impairment in health who are unable to care for themselves, a nursing home is a better option. These facilities provide the services of physicians and nurses round the clock through direct transfer agreements with medical centers. People who need this level of care include those with Alzheimer's or major chronic conditions.
