What is Long-Term Care?

Long-term care is a type of elderly assisted living that is provided to seniors or individuals with a chronic illness or disability who are unable to perform activities of daily living independently. Long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes and care homes, provide skilled nursing care and personal care to residents.

Independent living and assisted living facilities also provide long-term care services to residents who need assistance with daily living activities.

Assisted Living vs. Memory Care

The main difference between assisted living and memory care is the level of care each provides. Memory care is a higher level of care than assisted living, as it is specifically designed for those with memory impairments such as Alzheimer’s or dementia. Memory care facilities provide personal care and assistance with activities of daily living, as well as around-the-clock supervision and a secure environment. Assisted living, on the other hand, is a lower level of care designed for those who need help with some activities of daily living but are still relatively independent.

Skilled Nursing

skilled nursing facility is a type of long-term care facility that provides medical care and services for people who need ongoing care and support. These facilities are sometimes called rehab facilities, long-term care facilities, or nursing homes. Skilled nursing facilities care for people who require 24/7 care provided by a Registered Nurse, have chronic illnesses or disabilities, and seniors who need help with activities of daily living. These facilities provide various medical services, including nursing care, rehabilitation, and social and recreational activities. Gardens Care does not provide Skilled Nursing services; however, an assessment might find you or your loved ones need a better, different, or more affordable level of care that our communities offer.
