Micro Communities

Micro Communities are small homes geared for senior citizens that generally offer senior housing apartments for 5 – 10 senior citizens. These homes are also referred to as a residential care facility. The Micro Communities or residential care facility for the elderly are either structured as individual apartments inside of an apartment building for seniors or individual rooms for seniors all living inside of one large house. A micro community offers a lower level of daily assistance for seniors with a small staff that will assist with taking daily medications, help with cleaning, cooking, shopping for groceries, counting money and companionship to seniors in the residential care facility.

Are Micro communities or residential care facilities the right senior housing options for my loved one? Before choosing senior housing that is a residential care facility for the elderly consider the complete and immediate future needs of your senior. With a small staff that only is able to offer daily support with small household tasks, make sure your senior is able to function many of their daily activities along or with the limited support of another senior. Is their health condition becoming rapidly worst or are they starting to experience dementia? We strongly recommend that you discuss the senior housing needs of your loved one with your family and their doctor when weighing their final housing options.

When taking the next steps and finding the right micro community or residential care facility for the elderly we recommend taking the following steps. First, consider your budget and time frame your senior will be living in a residential care facility. Second, consider the location and convenience to local shopping and other activities. Third, we recommend touring the facility with your family first to get a feel for the environment and the staff then bring your loved one back on a second tour. Many of times you’ll tour multiple facilities before find the right micro community that feels "just right". This process can be draining and hard on seniors. Lastly, make sure that your loved one feels comfortable at the residential care facility, can see they would make friends and enjoying the micro community.
