Mississippi Senior Housing
Read about the local resources that can help you find senior housing in Mississippi.
When a family decides that a senior care facility is the best option for their loved one, a lengthy search for the right place often results. With many types of facilities serving the very different needs of seniors, it helps to understand what makes each one different and a good fit for your loved one.
Nursing Homes and Assisted Living
Two of the most common alternative senior care options are nursing home care and assisted living. Each type of care is a great option for a senior, but each also caters to a different set of needs. Nursing homes are the best option if your senior needs daily medical care and frequent monitoring, because staff there is trained to administer to medical needs and keep a close watch on residents as they require such frequent care. If your senior does not require such a high level of care or monitoring, an assisted living facility is a better choice. Assisted living facility residents have attentive staff available for help and more social activities because the residents are more mobile.
