Typically, independent living senior communities provide dining, housekeeping, maintenance, social activities and transportation. Residents live in private apartments in a variety of sizes and layouts ranging from studios to large two bedrooms and even three bedrooms. Independent Living communities can either be rental, equity or through an entrance fee arrangement.

Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs)
Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) are designed for seniors who require some level of assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). There are seven basic ADLs: eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring, continence and medication management. Assistance with medications, meals and personal care are routinely provided. Three meals per day are provided along with social programs and scheduled transportation. Residents live in private apartments which frequently have small kitchenettes. Assisted Living Facilities can be rented on either a long term basis or a short term stay (respite). There are different types of assisted living licences in the State of Florida – Standard, LNS and ECC. Please contact us for more information – 239-595-0207.
There are numerous housing options for people with dementia or Alzheimer’s depending of the level of cognitive impairment. Most memory care facilities provide 24-hour support with structured activities to ensure a resident’s safety and quality of life. Residents either live in private or semiprivate apartments. Most memory care facilities have secured areas to ensure a resident doesn’t wander off. Many times, within the secured areas, residents have access to outdoor walking paths and sensory gardens.
