Where To Begin

Where to Begin When Considering a Senior Living Community

When making the decision to transition to a senior living community, whether for yourself or a family member, it’s important to evaluate your specific needs and preferences. There are a number of senior living options, including independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing, each tailored to different levels of assistance and care, addressing the varying—and often changing—needs of older adults.

Consider factors such as:

  • healthcare services
  • social activities
  • meal options
  • amenities provided by each community

Talk to current residents and their families to get insight into daily life and overall satisfaction with the community. Ultimately, you want to find a place that aligns with your preferences, requirements, and financial situation—and offers a place that feels like home.

Understanding Your Level of Living

Casey's Pond Bistro in Steamboat Springs, COThere are several senior living options, and each has its advantages and considerations.

  • Independent living—Independent senior living refers to a type of housing arrangement designed for older adults who are generally able to live on their own and don’t require assistance with activities of daily living. It’s a maintenance-free, residential option that provides seniors with a sense of community and various amenities while allowing them to maintain their independence. Read more.
  • Assisted living—Assisted living is designed for those who need assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, or medication management. It offers a balance between independence and support, providing a home-like environment with on-site staff available around the clock to assist residents as needed. Read more.

The Difference Between For-Profit vs. Non-Profit Communities

Casey's Pond Senior Living Community in Steamboat Springs, COFor-profit and non-profit senior living communities share the common goal of providing housing, care, and services for older adults; they are fundamentally different as far as organizational structure, funding sources, and overall missions.

  • Organizational structure—For-profit organizations operate as businesses with the primary goal of making a profit for their owners or shareholders. Non-profit organizations focus on serving a specific community rather than generating profits, and funds go back to the community rather than shareholders.
  • Funding sources—For-profit organizations rely on resident fees, private investments, and profits generated from the operation of the community. Non-profits also receive resident fees, but they may also get funding from donations, grants, and community support.
  • Mission and purpose—For-profit organizations focus on financial sustainability and profitability for shareholders and other stakeholders. Nonprofits are driven by a mission to serve the community and its residents.

As always, it makes sense to consider factors such as staff qualifications, facilities, amenities, and the overall philosophy of care when choosing a senior living community.


The Cost of Senior Living

The average cost of assisted living in the United States is around $4,000 to $7,000 per month, but costs vary depending on location, type of community, level of care needed, and amenities provided. Casey’s Pond rates start at $2,980 for independent living in their efficient living neighborhood and go up to $8,405 for assisted living in their luxury neighborhood.

It’s important to remember that while the upfront costs of senior living communities might seem high, they may actually save money in the long run. Sharing services and amenities at a senior living community can be more economical. When considering the costs of senior living, potential residents should consider the specific services covered in the monthly fee, potential additional fees for extra services, and any financial assistance or insurance coverage available.
