While an assisted living community and a nursing home are both options for senior living, they are quite different.
If your loved one needs intensive medical care, consider choosing a nursing home. Skilled nursing is for seniors who need 24-hour supervision and skilled medical services. A nursing home also serves those who need short-term rehabilitation after a hospital stay or a decline in health.
In contrast, an assisted living community is ideal if your parent needs help taking medication, cooking meals, cleaning the house, bathing, or dressing. At The Ashford, we’ll help you choose the services that best reflect your loved one’s needs. Our community empowers your parent to maintain independence and enjoy a sense of personal freedom and autonomy.
