Just like buying a car, a computer, or even a refrigerator, looking for senior care is something that requires a lot of thought and research. And, much like a car, computer, or refrigerator, some senior living communities may try to wow potential residents with unnecessary features and amenities.
Senior living can be a rewarding and positive experience. Whether you want to take advantage of retirement with independent living or obtain some extra support with assisted living, senior living communities can provide a supportive and engaging environment where you can make new friends and memories.

What is Alzheimer’s disease? In short, Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia that typically develops in those 65 years old and older.
