Adult Care Home

Adult care homes, such as our very own Magnolia Gardens, provides care to seniors and others who need physical or cognitive assistance with daily activities in the comfort of a home like setting. 

  • Adult care homes normally provide more attentive care with staff to resident ratios being higher. 
  • The smaller home-like setting can be good for some people who prefer it.
  • With less residents, staff can cook homemade meals and do laundry more regularly. 

Assisted Living Communities

Assisted living facilities or ALFs for short are larger care communities that provide assistance with activities of daily living for their residents and provide a retirement living experiences with engagement programs to fit resident’s needs. 

  • Assisted living communities often have robust activity programs, common areas and social activities for their residents and family.
  • Care at these facilities is provided by staff caregivers and many times a lead RN. 
  • Assisted living prices range greatly depending on needs and the facility but are always staffed 24/7. 
  • Caregiver retention can be difficult in assisted living with high turnover as a concern. (not always suited for dementia)

Memory Care

Memory care is a type of residential care specifically for people with a form of dementia. These facilities are built to keep people safe with secured perimeters and exits. They offer life enrichment and daily assistance tailored for people with cognitive needs as well as specially trained staff.

  • Resident safety is a top priority for memory care communities, and they must have higher State regulated staffing ratios.
  • Memory care communities are built with dementia in mind and can be a great source of support for family. 
  • These types of facilities can be fairly restrictive and hard for people to transition to without help.

Skilled Nursing Facility (Nursing Home)

Skilled nursing facilities (nursing homes) are typically the highest level of care outside of a hospital. They are used for both short term rehabilitation stays as well as long-term care for those with care needs that require RN experience to perform. 

  • Nursing homes are normally chosen for long-term care when the person’s doctor and supporting healthcare professionals see no other alternative.
  • Due to the expertise needed to support care, these facilities come with a hefty price tag.
