What are the different types of long-term care facilities?
There are three main examples of long-term care facilities or communities that provide varying levels of care to their residents. Generalities regarding three senior care facilities are:
Assisted Living Communities (ALC) offer assistance to their residents with ADLs and IADLs. Medical care that requires skilled nursing is generally not available to residents in these communities.
Memory Care facilities offer assistance for patients with cognitive impairments, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. Memory Care facilities, typically associated with an ALC, are designed to meet the special needs of and provide a safe environment for cognitively impaired seniors. Depending on the facility, limited skilled nursing services may be available to memory care residents.
Nursing Homes (or Skilled Nursing Facilities) provide skilled nursing services to patients that have specific medical needs. Unskilled nursing services, such as assistance with ADLs and IADLs are also available in Nursing Homes.
