Mission: To educate and improve the experience of aging for mature adults and their caregivers.

What is a senior community?

A senior community can comprise condo or apartment living for older adults 60 and over in a community setting.  Most senior communities offer meal preparation, laundry assistance, housekeeping, social activities, transportation to grocery, drug store, and more.  Independent Living communities are for older adults who can live on their own and handle all their own affairs.  Assisted Living is a designation that provides more assistance for older adults in the community who may need assistance with taking medications or handling activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, toileting, eating or transferring.  Skilled nursing is required when an older adult begins to require a higher level of assistance.  A nurse is on duty 24/7 in skilled nursing centers.  Medications will always be administered by the nurse in skilled nursing.
