Welcome to SeniorLiving.Org. Our site was built to help educate seniors and caregivers about senior living, senior care and senior lifestyles. We also focus on helping seniors find care.
Just follow our 4 step approach to find the best senior care.
1. If you don’t understand the different levels of senior care available or the different lifestyle options available, check out our graphic representation of all the senior living options or read this article about senior lifestyles. This guide will help you understand retirement options like moving abroad for less expensive care, buying into a CCRC for high-end care, traveling the country staying in senior apartments and finding a different levels of local care.

2. Once you know what type of care you want or need, it is time to think about paying for it. First, think if you might qualify as part of a special interest or special needs group. Do you have special needs and potentially special services available to you. If you qualify to be part of one of these programs, they can have a big impact on the cost of care and the level of service. This can include:
Religious based senior careSenior care for VeteransHUD low income senior housingMasonic senior housing and senior care
There are also some other financial factors that can have a major impact on selecting the best care. Here are some other articles to help you think about your options.

For the lowest cost options, contact the Ombudsmen in your community. They are a government subsidized free senior care consultant and they are the best option if you are trying to find senior housing that you can pay for with only Medicare.
3. Once you have checked out your special options and finances, it is time to look for local options. You can enter your desired location into the search bar at the top of any page or browse by selecting a state and then city below. Then click on the tabs at the top to narrow your selection to a specific type of care in that area. Then you will see a list of your local options for the type of care you have selected. If a service qualifies for a special group, they will have an icon next to their listing. Click on the link to any service to get more information including types of care, surrounding options, costs, contact information, photos and more.
