Independent living communities are housing designed for seniors 55 and older. Individuals live in their own apartment, but have access to amenities such as housekeeping, social activities, dining, transportation, and more. Independent living does not typically provide supervision or medical care.Learn More
Assisted living communities are an excellent option for seniors who may require more day-to-day assistance with activities of daily life (ADLs) but wish to remain as independent for as long as possible. What distinguishes a property as an assisted living rather than an independent living or 55+ community is that it is regulated by the State of California and has employee caregivers.Learn More
Board and Care Homes
Board & Care homes (B&C) offer the same types of services as the larger communities, but service is provided in a small residential setting. The intimate setting afforded by board and care homes allows for closer oversight of residents and is accompanied by a higher staff to resident ratio. They share the same Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) license as the big buildings. Both are regulated and monitored by the California Department of Social Services.Learn More
Skilled Nursing or Nursing Homes
The terms “skilled nursing facility” and “nursing home” are often used interchangeably to describe a residential facility that provides on-site, 24-hour medical care. Some people think the two are one in the same, when in fact they are very different. A skilled nursing facility is a type of care while a nursing home is a senior living option.Learn More
In-home care includes any professional support services that allow a person to live safely in their home. In-home care services can help someone who is aging and needs home care assistance to live independently; is managing chronic health issues; is recovering from a medical setback; or has special needs or a disability.Learn More
