Assisted living? Memory care? Senior living services explained

Senior living has changed rapidly in the last few years. Gone are the days of a one-size-fits-all approach. Now senior living communities across the country are tasked with providing not only topnotch care, but care that fits each resident’s unique needs. Generally, there are three main types of services that senior living communities offer: Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care.

At ISL, we can serve as a resource to help you make the decision to move to senior living, and help you determine what services you or your loved one needs. We know the process can be overwhelming, so let us help you every step of the way!

Independent Living

Independent Living is best for people who can still live independently but want to enjoy amenities and live life without the burden of chores like maintaining a yard or home, housekeeping, and laundry. They will also have access to care, if needed.

How ISL helps: ISL’s independent living communities are ideal for seniors looking for a carefree, vibrant environment that encourages simplicity and pursuing activities that mean the most to you. Whether you’re looking to travel, volunteer in your community or visit with family, independent living at ISL strives to make life easy and pleasant.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living is best for people who need some level of medical and personal assistance in their day-to-day lives. This is a great option for people who are no longer able to live alone but may not need 24/7 care.

How ISL helps: Our Assisted Living program is designed to help you live a vibrant life by connecting with the people and community around you. As needs and plans may change, our staff is readily available to help you or your loved one. We center our care around each resident’s specific needs, assisting them with daily tasks while encouraging their independence.

Memory Care

Memory Care provides a more structured environment and is best for residents who may have Alzheimer’s or dementia.

How ISL helps: With specially designed and dedicated Alzheimer’s and memory care accommodations like our Generations Memory Care program, ISL ensures the comfort and security of your loved one. Communities have on-site resident care professionals who are always there to oversee the administration of medications, as well as other basic care needs.

No matter what your specific needs are, ISL is a perfect fit. You can learn which services our ISL communities offer in your area here. Schedule a tour and learn how our communities could be your perfect new home!
