What Senior Living Level of Care Is for Me or My Loved One?

When you or your loved one can no longer manage day-to-day activities independently, it may be time for a different level of care. The type of care you need depends on many factors, including your overall health, the severity of your symptoms, and your ability to perform activities of daily living. Several types of care are available, each with different levels of support.

Independent Living

Independent living is best suited to seniors living an independent, self-sufficient life. They offer a carefree lifestyle, freeing residents of the many burdens of daily life.

Here, older adults can socialize and enjoy life without worrying about home maintenance, cooking, or cleaning.

Independent living is a good choice for older adults who:

  • Are in good health and do not require regular medical care or assistance with activities of daily living
  • Wish to live in a supportive community environment
  • Desire an active, social lifestyle

Whether you are interested in independent living or a more assisted residential program, The Knolls of Oxford has what you’re looking for.

Assisted Living

Assisted living is a combination of personalized assistance services and care tailored to the individual who requires some form of help with activities of daily living. In assisted living communities, you will find more support services, such as assistance with bathing, grooming, medication, and dressing, while still enjoying your independence.

Assisted living is a good choice for seniors who:

  • Need some help with activities of daily living but wish to remain as independent as possible
  • Desire an active social lifestyle and the opportunity to interact with their peers daily
  • Prefer not to live alone

Assisted living is also a choice that a resident can make further in time, when more care is needed, but they still wish to maintain independence.

Skilled Nursing

Skilled nursing facilities are short-term and long-term residences that focus more heavily on medical assistance for those with chronic illnesses, injuries, or individuals that require 24-hour supervised care.

Skilled nursing is a good choice for seniors who:

  • Need regular medical care and assistance with activities of daily living
  • Would benefit from 24-hour supervision and support
  • Prefer not to live alone or with family members

Skilled nursing is a more intensive form of care offered at The Knolls of Oxford.
