What is a continuum of care?
The phrase refers to progressive levels of senior care services you may need as you get older. A Life Plan Community, also known as a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), offer these increasing levels of care—from independent living to assisted living, rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and memory care services.
Seniors today have a variety of housing options available, from 55+ neighborhoods, independent living apartments, assisted living communities, and so on. In a Life Plan Community, residents enjoy a true continuum of care, knowing that if their health needs change, the level of support and senior care can adjust to meet their needs.
When considering a move to a senior living community, it’s important to understand this continuum of care and the impact it has on your future. Many seniors choose a community based on location, amenities, and the lifestyle offered, but access to quality care is also vital.
Independent living options are ideal for seniors who prefer an active, maintenance-free lifestyle. Help with housekeeping, lawn care, and other tasks lets you spend more time doing what you find most important. Research has shown that older adults living in a Life Plan Community experience increased health benefits that lead to better longevity and a higher quality of life.
When health concerns or chronic conditions make it difficult to complete everyday tasks, assisted living, or personal care services, help residents live as independently as possible by providing aid with dressing, grooming, cooking, and medication management—just the right amount of assistance to continue to thrive.
SKILLED NURSING AND REHABILITATION
A skilled nursing care facility, or skilled nursing services in a Life Plan Community, provide the highest level of care for seniors outside a hospital setting. With 24-hour care from licensed nurses, long-term nursing care is designed for seniors who have chronic conditions that require constant monitoring. In addition to long-term daily nursing care, skilled nursing often provides short-term rehabilitation therapies such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy for those recovering from illness, injury, or surgery.
For those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, memory care services provide 24-hour care and structured activities to support the best quality of life. The professional memory care teams at Springpoint communities are specially trained to create a calm, peaceful, comfortable environment for residents living with dementia.
