Retirement communities have taken on a new face on the
populated domains of the west coast. Naturally they offer
varied native tongues to keep their faculty communicating with
their clients and families, most of them are scenically located
along various locations of splendor and offer a wide range of
Whether you are looking for an adult day care situation,
extended home care, or a residential solution, the services
located along the populated areas of the west coast are quite
competitive. With the extensive population of the west coast,
there is tremendous competition for residential facilities to
remain in business.
Most retirement communities and residential
nursing care programs do have an age requirement. Although
retirement communities simply require that the resident is
at least aged sixty five, some residential nursing programs
require that you are at least age seventy five years old.
This is to ensure that the rare event of disabled children
didn’t become residents. This is an outdated phenomenon that
used to happen even into the early eighties.
Populated areas such as the lower west coast tend to have upper
class and lower class versions of retirement communities and
nursing care. Naturally with various differences in cost there
are bound to be various differences in the quality of care.
Residential nursing facilities can be an unfortunate factor of
you get what you pay for. However, the trend of developing
middle class residential nursing care is becoming almost as
popular as the high end residential and retirement
The west coast has recently made retirement mobile communities
fairly popular as an additional option. Retirement mobile
communities are a series of well designed, nicely landscaped
mobile homes that have one residential building devoted to
medical care. In these communities, each individual owns their
home, but the property the home rests on belongs to the owner
of the community. The fees, which are basically the same
concept of lot rent paid in other mobile home communities, are
quite high in comparison to cover the cost of a twenty four
hour nursing staff and a weekly on call doctor.
This concept is quite popular although the applicable reality
comes with its share of issues. The idea is based on loosely
medically supervising the residents which is supposed to allow
them more freedom, plus the financial security of home
ownership. However, often residents expect a much higher level
of care than is reasonable given the circumstances.
Additionally, when a resident becomes too ill to care for
themselves the hassle of settling the property can drag on
beyond the lifespan of the patient. What started off as an
experiment in elder care was expected to take over west coast
communities. While some residents were happy with the results,
many found the system to be too complicated and moved to
traditional residential nursing care.
Condominium style residential nursing
care is quite popular and more effective on the west coast.
A vast number of Orange Countians prefer this arrangement in
their senior years as opposed to any other aged managed care.
Often seniors are permitted a fair trade in on the value of
their home in exchange for an on site condominium style
apartment within a nursing home environment. This is the prime
example of maintaining independent living until it is no longer
feasible. The apartments are unique, come with beautiful views,
and operate quite similarly to any other apartment complex.
While there are activities available on the grounds, an
individual can live just as though they were completely on
their own as long as their health and mental capacity allow.
The assumption is made that this is the environment the
individual will live out the remaining years and the financial
obligations are taken care of with the trading of the house so
when a resident needs to move into a high level care room,
there is no worry about additional financial entanglements.
Retirement and nursing home communities come in a variety of
arrangements and options. The west coast has found some
interesting methods of expanding on the idea of these
environments and capitalizing on the basic principle that
sooner or later everyone will probably need some sort of
residential or in home care in pure west coast style.
While there is no one state that has every possible answer for
all the issues the elderly need addressed, but there are
several who have done a better job addressing elderly needs
than others. Of course, the west coast is one of the leaders in
the United States.
