Try Our Free Senior Living Finder Tool

By Lynn Wilson, Co-Founder of The CareGiver Partnership

Since 2006, The CareGiver Partnership has provided products and information to help seniors age in place, remaining in their homes safely and independently. If it becomes necessary to explore other senior living options, a new tool called the Senior Living Finder SM  helps the elderly and their families find housing options that meet their personal needs.

We’ve added this free referral service to our site, to help seniors and their families and caregivers find personalized solutions when seeking alternative living arrangements.

When considering senior housing, it’s important to assess how much care a senior needs, housing location and monthly costs. It’s also helpful to think about which amenities will make your loved one feel “at home.” Is there enough privacy, phone access, televisions in every room? Can your loved one enjoy the outdoors or go on outings?

To use the Senior Living Finder SM tool, simply type in a city, state and type of care. Here are care options to choose from, with explanations of services provided.

·         Independent living: Housing units that may include basic services such as meals and housekeeping.

·         Congregate living: Group living environment that integrates shelter and services for seniors who do not need institutional supervision or intensive health care.

·         Assisted living: Combines housing and supportive services, such as health care coordination and monitoring of daily living and activities.

·         Continuing care: Community providing various levels of eldercare, from independent living to nursing care.

·          Nursing care: Facility for residents who may need 24-hour observation and care by a professional staff.

·         Alzheimer’s care: Residence skilled in caring for those with all stages of dementia and cognitive problems.

·         Rehabilitation care: Facility where staff helps enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life following an accident or injury.

This looks like a great tool. Thanks for sharing. Does it also give a rating of the facilities?

Medicare Eye Glasses - unfortunately, it does not give a rating of the facilities. This is a real need that is lacking in the marketplace. I'd love to see a company like Trip Advisor devise such a rating system for us all to use.
