According to data published by SaintSimeons.org, approximately 1,000,000 Americans now live in some sort of senior living community. Factors like the large number of baby boomers who are reaching retirement age and Americans’ increasing longevity contribute to Saint Simeon’s estimate that the number is likely to jump to 2,000,000 within the next 10 years. Other sources estimate that 7 of 10 people now reaching retirement age will need some form of long-term care during their lifetime.
Finding a safe location that will meet the needs of your parents or another loved one can be challenging. This is true whether they are still healthy and physically active, or physically limited and in need of assistance with their daily care and routine.
Certainly, locating a community or facility that meets your loved ones’ physical and emotional needs is critical. However, you also need to consider the quality of care, lifestyle options, proximity, and cost of all the available options.
If you’re not sure what assisted living communities are available in your area, you might begin the process by accessing the federal government’s Eldercare Locator. In many communities, the local Area Agency on Aging or the Council on Aging is also a good starting point.
If you find those prospects daunting, and would prefer to trust someone with experience and local knowledge, then LifeCycle Transitions is an excellent resource to help you find an assisted living or independent living community for aging parents.
