Senior Housing Types
Today in the Puget Sound area, there are literally thousands of choices for senior living. While our Senior Housing Placement experts will be happy to answer any questions you may have, here's a brief overview of the five types of communities that are available.
Also known as Active Retirement Communities, these senior communities generally offer studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments with kitchenettes.
Assisted living communities generally offer studios and one-bedroom apartments with or without kitchenettes, as three meals per day are provided.
Also known as Memory Care, these living communities specialize in caring for residents who have dementia, including Alzheimer's disease.
Adult Family Homes are private residential homes that are licensed to provide care for up to six residents in private or semi-private rooms.
Skilled Nursing Homes are typically licensed by Medicare and (in many cases) Medicaid to provide short-term acute care and long-term care to residents requiring skilled nursing services.
