5 Questions to Ask When Choosing Between Christian Retirement Communities

Do you have a loved one in need of skilled nursing or personal care services? Are you nearing retirement and looking for Christian retirement communities for yourself? Either way, it’s vital that you do your research to ensure you get the services and amenities you’ll need to enjoy the retirement years.

Today’s post offers some key questions to consider when choosing a retirement community, and particularly those with faith-based missions. (more…)


Get Familiar with Your Options for Retirement Living

As the U.S. population of people over 60 years of age grows, so too does the demand for care and housing to meet their changing needs. How seniors navigate their golden years has changed for the better over the last few decades, even though many don’t realize this.

Today, seniors can enjoy a better quality of life and more housing and care options than ever before. Consequently, seniors and their families can be overwhelmed by the choices available. Ultimately, the choice of which care and housing option is best for any individual comes down to two things: care needs and finances, though there are many more things to consider when choosing the right retirement community.

Today’s post offers a closer look at the different types of living options that are available to senior retirees now. From “aging in place” in your current home to moving into one of a variety of community types, we’ll help you sort through the possibilities as you plan for the future. (more…)


What You Need to Know About Planning for Long-Term Care

Medical advancements are enabling Americans to live longer than ever before. Consequently, retirement plans need to reflect a longer view than they did even a decade ago. Now is the time to review and possibly revise a retirement plan to make sure it can address the rising costs of living longer.

Living longer also comes with increased risks of developing a debilitating condition, requiring some form of care or assistance. Whether it is a simple surgery, that requires short-term assistance, or something life-changing like Alzheimer’s or dementia, which needs escalating, long-term care, every adult must include considerations for these eventualities in their retirement plans.

Care varies not just in length, short or long-term, but also in who administers it, family members, volunteers, professional non-medical aids, or skilled medical staff. It is important to remember that not all care, even that provided by professional aids or skilled nursing staff, is covered by Medicare or supplemental insurance. (more…)


What’s the Difference between Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

If you are caring for a senior loved one or even just planning ahead for your own future care needs in retirement, you have probably encountered questions about cognitive changes that come with aging, up to and including dementia and Alzheimer’s.

With the advocacy of the well-known nonprofit Alzheimer’s Association, and the fact that each June brings Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month in the United States, it’s true that many people believe that Alzheimer’s is an interchangeable name for dementia. In other words, anytime someone is diagnosed with dementia it automatically means Alzheimer’s. However, this not the case.

The two terms refer to potentially different health concerns with Alzheimer’s being the name of a specific degenerative brain disease and “dementia” being a more general term that’s often used to describe symptoms of various diseases and disorders (including Alzheimer’s).

It’s true that the differences can be very confusing, and that confusion can lead to unnecessary worry and stress. That’s why we’re taking a closer look at how Alzheimer’s differs from other forms of dementia and how cognitive changes of all types can affect patients’ families and caregivers. The good news is that there are more resources for help with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis, or dementia more generally, than ever before. (more…)
