Senior Living Services and Care

Senior lifestyle, retirement and care options vary widely, and the choices can be overwhelming. When choosing a retirement community, it’s important to think about what kinds of assistance and/or medical care you or your loved one needs now, and what additional care may be needed in the future.

At every Five Star Senior Living community, we can assist you with assessing those needs and finding the right lifestyle, location, and care for you. The services and care offered differ from location to location. Five Star can help you choose the senior living community that has the right solutions and services for you.

Independent living is for seniors who do not need assistance with everyday life, but who want to live a maintenance-free lifestyle in a community with social activities and others like them.

Assisted living is for seniors who can no longer live on their own, but who do not need complex medical supervision—just friendly assistance with the activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing, getting around, or medication reminders.

Alzheimer's Care is for seniors who need assistance both in daily tasks and in medical supervision in a setting that is designed for those with Alzheimer's disease.

Personal Care Services are offered at some retirement communities that do not offer Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Home Care, yet want to provide their residents with basic services to help them with tasks such as dressing or getting around.

Skilled health care (also called skilled nursing facilities or nursing homes) is for those who need ongoing medical care and supervision because of medical needs. It is also for anyone who needs short-term concentrated nursing or rehabilitation while recovering from surgery or an illness.

Full service retirement communities, sometimes called continuing care retirement communities (CCRC), offer two or three levels of care services, so seniors who are independent can live there knowing that if they ever need assistance or care due to age or medical needs, it will be available right where they are.


Simple Funding Options

Just as important, we’re on a fee-for-service basis: you pay for only the extra help you need, only when you need it. To fit your financial objectives, we have an exceptional range of flexible funding options and pricing models—without "buy-in" fees.

The more you look into Five Star communities, the more options you discover for customized comfort and security.
