Our need for companionship stays strong all throughout our lives. When people age with someone they love, it can be hard to plan appropriate senior care, especially for couples who require different levels of care. While meeting this level of care can be hard in the home, senior living communities can offer assisted living for couples to ensure both parties have their needs met without splitting anyone apart.

Moving into a senior living community that can meet the needs of each individual's needs could be the best move for an aging couple. Benefits of senior living for couples include the following:

How St. Andrew's Supports Maintaining Unity Among Family Members with Divergent Care Needs

Oftentimes, one partner needs a higher level of care than the other. But this fact doesn't mean that a couple needs to be apart in order to have individual care needs met.

At each community in the St. Andrew's network, we offer a wide array of senior care options with a special focus on personal care services tailored to the individual needs of each resident, even if they live together. Senior living communities in our network are continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), which offer many levels of specialized care for older adults in a singular location. Within our CCRC communities, we can adjust care based on the ever-changing needs of the individual.

Senior living options we offer include assisted living, independent living, skilled nursing care, and memory care services that are available in two-bedroom and one-bedroom apartments that married couples can share.

Contact us today to speak to one of our senior living advisors. We would love to discuss a personalized long-term care plan for both of your aging parents or for you and your spouse.
