Reaching the point where you or a loved one cannot live unaided in the home is a difficult life transition that most families will encounter. It can be difficult to discuss senior care with a family member, and it can be even more difficult to find good senior care options that are both good and affordable. Fortunately, for those seeking senior care in Tucson, AZ there are professional agencies such as Senior Planning which can help you through this process. Here is a breakdown of some of the options for Tucson residents.
In a large metropolitan area, such as Phoenix, Arizona, there are many senior care options. Lets look at some of the options that are available for senior care in the North Phoenix area. The first and perhaps best known option is the assisted living community. Assisted living communities provide apartment style living with supplemental caregivers to help residents with day to day activities of daily living. These include: bathing, meal preparation, medication management, and other help that their residents might require. The drawback of assisted living is that it can be quite expensive and sometimes these communities cannot care for those patients who need more intensive care.
