The Different Levels of Senior Living: What Hampton Manor Has To Offer
The transition from independent living to senior living can be a hard transition for any family or individual. However, Hampton Manor Assisted Living is here to make this new venture in life easier. The key to making the transition as seamless as possible is finding the right level of care for yourself or your loved one. When it comes to senior living, you have loads of options, but we are only going to discuss the five most prominent options at this time!
Senior Living Communities
Also known as Active Adult Communities or 55+ communities- This senior living option is best for individuals who are still completely independent and active. These communities are often gated and based around recreational activities. Senior Living Communities provide a strong base of support and activity for their residents. Activities can include clubs, sports, games, and private events.
Are you completely independent and looking for a community of like-minded active seniors? This is the place for you!
Independent Living Homes
Independent Living is one of the best kinds of living! These communities are for individuals still active and independent, similar to Senior Living Communities, but remove the mundane parts of life that can become particularly taxing as we age. For example, mundane activities can include mowing the lawn, housekeeping, laundry, and cooking- all taken care of for you. Independent Living does not yet include any nursing or health care services for individuals with declining health.
This is the ideal place for seniors hoping to stay at home as long as possible, but who are unable to safely maintain an entire home!
Assisted Living Homes
Assisted living is where Hampton Manor comes in! We are the premier place for those in need of Assisted Living. These homes are ideal for people who are still independent but desire the peace of mind of having 24hour care. Or, for individuals who are slow getting around but can still take care of themselves. And, for independent individuals who have particular medical needs that require in-home nursing care. We provide 3 meals each day, housekeeping, activities, an around the clock nursing staff, and transportation to anywhere necessary.
Assisted Living Homes allow residents to maintain a sense of privacy and independence while removing the risk in their everyday lives. Does this sound like you or your loved one? Give us a call!
Memory Care Assisted Living
Memory Care is sector of Assisted Living, also offered in two of Hampton Manor’s communities! This senior living option is specifically designed for individuals suffering from degenerative diseases of the mind, such Alzheimers and Dementia. These individuals are still full of life, mobile, and independent but need a little extra help maintaining their health and completing daily tasks. We have specialized staff available 24/7 to assist residents through these unique diseases.

Nursing Homes are a step beyond Assisted Living, and a step beyond Hampton Manor’s communities. This is the most involved version of Senior Living. These homes are for individuals whom can no longer take care of themselves and their daily tasks. This is the most appropriate home for individuals who can no longer safely move around. Also, Nursing Homes often contain hospice for residents coming to the end of their life. Nursing Homes provide residents everything they could need including medical care, meals, housekeeping, activities, and a community to spend their days with!
If you or your loved one needs/are looking for extensive care as they age, a Nursing Home is could be the perfect place!
While, we only touched on the 5 most basic forms of Senior Living, there are many different types! Finding the perfect place for you or your loved one is key.
