Premium housing options for seniors

Several options for high end senior living are outlined and the benefits of Amica senior living residences highlighted

Independent living

Independent living is right for active, self-sufficient seniors who want to live within a community of older adults. Seniors typically choose independent living when they value their autonomy and can take care their daily living tasks, but they are ready to have someone else look after the meals, housekeeping and household maintenance. At Amica, seniors in independent living enjoy added peace of mind knowing they have the security of on-site nurses and flexible support services if and when they may be needed.

Assisted living

Older adults choose assisted living if they want to hand over household chores and they would like some kind of assistance with daily living activities such as dressing, bathing, dining, taking medication, etc. Professional and caring staff offer support for seniors who’d like a little help due to mobility challenges, health conditions, etc. Assisted living at Amica gives seniors the freedom to live as they choose but with the added security and peace of mind of knowing that team members are available whenever needed.

Memory care

Families choose memory care for their loved ones to help them stay safe and flourish while living with dementia or memory loss. In memory care, seniors get round-the-clock support from caring and professionally trained staff who follow best practices in dementia care to reduce stress and anxiety for residents. Older adults living with Alzheimer’s and other memory issues enjoy engaging and life-enriching activities while staff help residents feel comfortable and cared for.

Respite care

Seniors benefit from respite care when they would like assistance for a limited time, such as after being released from the hospital due to illness or surgery, or when caregivers are going to be away and unable to help. Respite care residents move into a furnished private suite where they receive assistance according to their personal preferences and wellness plan, plus meals, housekeeping and access to all recreational activities, social events and amenities.
