Independent Living Communities enable residents to live as independently as possible, while providing certain services and social activities. A retirement home is a multi-residence housing facility intended for senior citizens. A nursing home is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital. Each state licensing agency has its own definition of the term it uses to describe assisted living. Retirement homes are also called retirement residences. Assisted Living communities are regulated and licensed at the US state level. Assisted living emerged in the 1990s as an eldercare alternative on the continuum of care for seniors for whom Independent living is no longer appropriate but who do not need the 24-hour medical care provided by a nursing home. Assisted living residences or assisted living facilities provide supervision or assistance with activities of daily living. Assisted living residences or assisted living facilities provide supervision or assistance with coordination of services by outside health careproviders. The usual retirement home pattern is that each person or couple in the home has an apartment-style room or suite of rooms. Each state licensing agency has its own definition of the term it uses to describe assisted living. A nursing home, convalescent home, Skilled Nursing Unit, care home or rest home provides a specific type of care for its residents. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given.

The independent living cottages at Woodland Heights are gorgeous, and the atmosphere is so peaceful. The cottages seem to provide the best of both worlds... a place of solitude and relaxation for yourself, but with many opportunities to be with others. A real plus I noted here is the feeling of community among the residents and staff alike. Whether gathering for a special event in the mansion community center, taking a trip together, joining a monthly dinner or barbecue, or just relaxing--all the staff members and residents I have met are helpful and friendly, quickly making you feel a part of their "family". From the directors to the chef to the marketing director to the cottage residents....I could sense an evident spirit of caring and teamwork.
