Many seniors may have been used to living luxurious lives when they were working and earned a good living. Sadly, not many can continue the lifestyle, and are forced to live modestly on a pension or allowance from family members. Assisted living facilities have increased over the past decade, and some of them offer luxury, to say the least. For those lucky enough to be able to live in luxury, there are several types to choose from. There are some factors to consider. Most seniors live with their children before they end up moving to a place of their own. Still, most prefer to be near family, while others prefer to be near a hospital area, by the sea, or near a park.


Assisted Living

This is essentially a retirement home with staff-on-site to provide assistance. Some seniors need extra care, particularly those afflicted with dementia or have disabilities. Severe cases though would need a nursing home, the assisted living option is for those who can still move around and have their wits about them. Normally, this option has rooms for rent, instead of a whole apartment. It is easy to get around, and has comforts of home. Scheduled activities are provided to help entertain such as social clubs, parlor games, and healthy activities like exercise routines, yoga, tai chi, etc. However, not all the elderly choose to live the rest of their lives this way, and consider other options.

Retirement Community

Basically, these are a group of homes or apartments rented out by seniors. It is independent living, though some services like housekeeping and transportation are included in the monthly rent. They are ideal for seniors who want to maintain their independence, but may require some assistance. Some prefer this type of living, as visits from family members are more private than in assisted living. This would be ideal for those seniors still in the early stages of their senior life, where they can still go to the grocery, maintain a garden, and keep a furry companion. They do as they please in their homes, with no one to set rules for them.


Nursing Homes

This is for those seniors who need around-the-clock care and medical attention. It usually is more expensive, as they are set-up just like a hospital. They have a staff of doctors, nurses, and health workers 24 hours, 7 days a week. Most families that can afford the nursing homes prefer this type of living for their elderly as they are more or less assured of a staff that will attend to their needs and take good care of the old people.

Luxury living for seniors, no matter what type, can be costly. The cheaper options of retirement communities can cost from $1,500 to $3,500 a month, depending on location and services. There will surely be extra costs for luxury such as golf courses, pools, gyms, and lounges. Assisted living facilities can go from $2,500 to $6,000 for a private room or suite, again depending on the location. The most expensive would obviously be the nursing homes, since it comes with guaranteed medical care and services. A private room would go for at least $7,500, and a shared room will cost about $6,750. If you are looking for a place for your elderly, ask friends around, and check the internet. Some places offer discounts based on terms of stay, like if you pay in advance for a year.  Do your research, but don’t expect it to be cheap, if you want your seniors to have luxurious dwellings.
