What is the difference between an Assisted Living community and a nursing home?
Nursing home and an Assisted Living community are both options for Senior Living, however, there are significant differences.
If your loved one needs intensive medical care, a nursing home may be the best option because it provides skilled nursing for seniors who need 24-hour supervision and skilled medical services. A nursing home also serves those who need short-term rehabilitation after a hospital stay or a decline in health.
An Assisted Living community, on the other hand, is ideal for seniors who need help with personal needs to maintain their independence. This includes bathing, dressing, cooking meals, taking medication and cleaning the house.
At Oakleaf Village, we’ll help you choose the services that best reflect your loved one’s needs. Our community empowers your parent to maintain independence and enjoy a sense of personal freedom and autonomy.
