What Are The Types Or Differences In Retirement Homes?
Phoenix retirement homes often refer to senior living options that include elderly care for independent living in Scottsdale retirement homes, Mesa retirement homes, Phoenix assisted living facilities, and other senior group homes, including senior care in assisted living homes. (Not included in this senior care term are nursing homes for Alzheimers care and dementia care.)
What "retirement homes" may refer to is a senior independent living community wherein seniors live in their own apartments and enjoy an active lifestyle:
- Apartments are often equipped with kitchens so seniors may prepare meals
- There are no caregivers for residents, though they may employ private caregivers
- Independent living communities may not be licensed by the department of health
Retirement homes may also refer to assisted living communities. It's similar to an independent living community, but apartments in assisted living facilities may not be as spacious or may only have a kitchenette. Caregivers are available to residents 24 hours a day and there is emphasis on socialization. The state department of health licenses these facilities and inspects them annually with results made public and available upon request.
The term retirement homes may also refer to assisted living homes or adult group homes. In Arizona, assisted living facilities may be private, residential settings. Caregivers are available 24 hours a day and are licensed by the department of health. Care is very personal and often specific to those who need help with daily living activities. Meals are primarily homemade and served family-style. Activities may be in a group or individual. These homes are also surveyed by the state annually and made public if you wish to see them.
