Elder care encompasses the decision-making process of moving the elderly from the home environment to a residential care setting. That is why nowadays, if you have an aging parent who needs care, you can choose from different types of elder care homes.

Different Types of Elder Care Homes

One of the most popular types of elder care homes is the nursing home, which is also called as elder care center. Nursing homes vary in type and size. The two types include skilled nursing homes and best nursing homes. Usually, the skilled nursing homes are the ones that provide physical and occupational therapy that includes therapeutic exercises and training in daily activities such as grooming, dressing, and bathing. The best nursing homes also provide restorative services, where a restorative aide executes easy exercises and assisted ambulation with elderly patients.

Assisted living facilities are also good options. These facilities provide care for elderly who are more independent than those who are in the nursing homes. These usually have private apartment-like setting where the elderly can be reasonably independent. However, unlike the nursing homes, these do not offer exercise activities, physical therapy, and restorative services.

And lastly, you can also choose adult foster homes. Just like the other two options, these also offer a home-like environment. They have reliable staff that looks after the residents needs such as home-cooked meals and activities that are according to their interests. Although these specialize in elder care, people of any age can be admitted in these facilities.

These are the different types of elder care homes that you can look into for your aging parent. Whatever you choose, see to it that it can provide your parents or relatives with the assistance and care that he or she needs.

Elder Care provides detailed information on Elder Care, Elder Care Business, Elder Care Attorneys, Elder Care Homes and more. Elder Care is affiliated with Senior Independent Living.
