Senior Care Residence – Considering Options – Kansas City

Choosing a senior care residence for yourself or a loved one ultimately comes down to personal choice.

Many individuals or families are often faced with making the decision to move to a facility rather abruptly, having no plan in place for where to go when the need arises. Whether a nursing home or senior retirement facility, you need to determine the best place to fit your needs. The biggest differences between these types of facilities are primarily appearance, privacy, the medical services that are available and the physical size of each community.

Prospective residents should factor in their healthcare needs when deciding on a senior care residence – now and in the future. They often require frequent monitoring, typically having health care conditions that require skilled nursing or specialized care. Smaller facilities are usually more limited in the scope of care they can offer and may be unable to manage your condition as it progresses. When mild dementia evolves into full-blown Alzheimer’s disease, it may come down to eventually having to move to a larger facility where specialized dementia care will be provided.

In many cases, a smaller senior care residence is preferable because it tends to appeal to residents who want a more intimate environment in which to spend their golden years. Nursing home residents are often forced to share a room with another resident, whereas in a senior care residence they will have their own apartment or suite. The best option is to strike a balance by finding a senior care residence that offers both a comfortable, homelike environment as well as a skilled and competent staff and other amenities.

Another potential issue is if the smaller facility ends up closing down after a few years, residents are going to be forced to relocate to an assisted living facility. Larger facilities have better financial capabilities than smaller homes and are able to provide a continuum of care that a smaller care home often cannot. They can offer more amenities and services, such as laundry and housekeeping, to name a few, and have visiting physicians and skilled staff available at all times.

Key points to keep in mind when choosing a senior care residence is that Clover Care Home provides:

  • Medication Management: Managing medications can be difficult, especially for seniors who take many different medications each day. Clover Care Home helps residents safely manage their medications.
