Choosing the right care and housing for yourself or a loved one can be difficult. The multitude of options and care environments available can be overwhelming. The staff at Rockport Independent & Assisted Living has put together some helpful tips to keep you informed along your journey.
Types of Care:
- Independent Living Community
An Independent Living Community is a facility where residents are age 55 and older and able to function on their own with minimal assistance. They need no or little help with daily activities. See our Independent Living section for rates and services.
- Assisted Living Facility
Assisted Living Facilities provide supervision or assistance with the activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing, medication management and other add-on assisted living services. These services are coordinated by an outside health care provider and/or the facility's staff. The facility's staff monitor's the resident's activities to ensure the resident's safety, health and well-being. See our Assisted Living section for rates and services.
- Memory Care Facilities
Memory or Alzheimer's Facilities refer to senior care communities that specialize in care for individuals with Alzheimer's disease, dementia or related memory concerns. Caregivers at these facilities are specially trained to assist residents with memory impairments.
- Continuing Care Retirement Community
A Continuing Care or Life-care Community is a retirement community where several aging care needs such as assisted living, independent living and nursing home care are all met in a single residence, in an apartment or enclosed unit setting. Many times these types of facilities require a large move-in fee.
