  • You know, you never really think about how hard it can be to have too many options. Especially when you're uninformed, and even more especially when the choice to be made involves a life-changing decision for a family member. Kudos to The Senior Institute for making the choice so much easier!

    Cat Bannock

    Tucson, AZ
  • My husband and I were maxed out trying to care for his mom and we needed to do something. Neither of us knew the first thing about assisted living other than the horror stories we'd heard about some of the bad facilities. Thanks to the Institute for Senior Living she's now in a really great facility. They eliminated the stress and guesswork from the whole process.

    Julie Gardner

    Phoenix, AZ
  • I couldn't recommend this organization highly enough. They turned what would have been an overwhelming experience into something very manageable and helped us get me stepfather into an assisted living facility that met both his needs and the budget available.

SENIOR LIVING OPTIONS

Which type of senior living is right for you (or for that beloved elder in your life)? Let's look at the common options.
GET STARTED!

Independent living

If you don't need daily assistance but you want to be around others just in case (or you just want companionship and activity), independent living could be right for you.

Assisted living

If you need help with some activities of daily life (ADLs), assisted living is a good option. Supportive staff can assist with medications, meals, showers and more.
Senior memory care

Memory care

For those living with dementia, memory loss, Alzheimers, or other variations of mental capacity decline, memory care becomes practically essential.
Assisted living for seniors

Nursing home

For a senior needing more than a little ADL assistance, a good nursing home will give the needed support on a more intensive, continuous level.
