Aging in Place Communities


An “Aging in Place Community” sometimes known as a “Campus of Care” model, can be described as a residence or group of residences, where more than one type of living and/or care option is offered on the same property. As more “Aging in Place Communities” are developed, individuals may choose to live in a community such as this in order to accommodate future service and care requirements should they arise. The options within an Aging in Place Community could include two or more of the following settings:





Example:

Independent apartment and Independent Living with services aka Assisted Living Residence are located on the same property.


You or a loved one currently lives in an apartment. Over time, you find that you would benefit from having your meals prepared and perhaps housekeeping services. Since these services are offered in the Assisted Living e on the same property, the move may be easier due to the location as well as the having the same ownership/management of both living settings.


Example:

Independent Living with services aka Assisted Living and a Supportive Housing Residence are located on the same property.


You or a loved one currently lives in an Independent Living with Services aka Assisted Living Residence. Over time, you find that you would benefit from more services provided in a community setting. The move to a Supportive Housing Residence may be made easier due to the location as well as having the same ownership/management of both living settings.


Other Considerations:

Spouses sometimes require different care and or services at different times of their lives. Perhaps one spouse needs the 24 hour nursing care provided by a personal care home, but the other spouse is doing well in an Independent Living with Services aka Assisted Living Residence. In an Aging in Place Community, both of these options may be available on the same property or there may even be in two buildings connected together by a closed walkway. This would alleviate the caregiver burden that may be present, while providing an environment where the couple can still be together as much as they would like to.


In an “Aging in Place Community” a move to a different service and or care setting could occur while still maintaining the same circle of friends (and perhaps the staff) within the original setting. Even simple details such as being able to dine in the same location or attend recreational activities in a familiar area can make for an easier transition.
