Assisted living residents are usually seniors who have had a slight decline in health in some way and need assistance performing one or more activities of daily living (ADLs). Seniors who would like to live in a social environment with little responsibilities and a place where care is easily accessible whenever the senior may need it are the type of seniors you will find in an assisted living community.
What is the difference between Independent Living and Assisted Living?
Independent living is a level of care that is below assisted living. Independent living communities are considered to be any form housing that is targeted to seniors over the age of 55. Independent living can include apartments as well as single family homes or townhouses. Typically there are activities planned for the members of the community as well as minimal assistance with yard work or other maintenance issues. Residents maintain as much independence as possible and are still able to perform all of the activities of daily living.
At Springwell we serve both Assisted Living and Independent Living as well as Memory Care that specializes in residents with dementia and Altzheimers. We encourage to to schedule a tour so you can see for yourself the level of care we provide our residents and the lifestyle they maintain when they are here. Give us a call at 410-664-4006
