Getting older requires a change in choices, desires, and lifestyle. From the choice of food to what to do after retirement and to downsizing, making these decisions can be daunting. Children of aging parents, in some cases, take turns to house their parents to better attend to them. This is not altogether effective as parents with less active lifestyles are often left alone while their children tend to their careers and other activities. The better option is a senior living community where elderly parents and loved ones can be adequately cared for.
Aston Gardens communities offer resort-style senior living and a variety of residential senior living options in Florida. Schedule a tour to learn more about our communities and services today–connect with Aston Gardens at or contact us online.
Types of Senior Living Communities
There are several types of senior living communities with varying services, depending on the health and lifestyle of the residents involved. They include:
1. Independent Living Communities
This is for seniors with active lives who can still move about and desire communal living amongst people of their age.
2. Hospice Care
For aging residents with terminal illnesses, there are senior living communities designed to provide comfort and attend to their emotional and spiritual needs as they approach the last stages of their lives.
3. Temporary Care
Boredom and loneliness are often the complaints of seniors. Senior living communities that offer temporary or daycare allow residents to visit during the day or for a short time while their caregivers are at work.
4. Hybrid Care
The type of care for seniors would differ from one client to another. For some, it’s one type of care and for others a combination of two or more. Senior living communities providing hybrid care services deploy two or more kinds of services for a better result.
