WELCOME TO THE 2018 SENIOR HOUSING DIRECTORYThe time to start looking for a long term care solution is before you need or want it. This will allow for the person ultimately needing care, as well as family members, to make decisions together. Making intentional choices rather than ones that are limited by your options in a more urgent situation allows for the most comfortable transition.With that in mind, it is good idea to visit as many places of interest as possible. This guide can help you get started but there is nothing like a visit for a full picture of what options are available.Furthermore, this directory identifies the issues that make a move to a new home chal- lenging. Whether it’s a change in care needs, dementia, deciding what to ask, costs to cover care, legal definitions, or what to take when you move, you now have a tool that can make evaluating your options easier. Keep in mind that just because care needs have changed there may be adjustments that can be made to stay in your current home.The quick reference lists found on pages 12- 15 identifies facilities and home-care services to help you get started.A special thank you to all the organizations and businesses in this issue that helped to bring this comprehensive look at housing options to you.Sherii Sherban, PublisherPublication:2018 Senior Housing Directory is published by Senior Times of South Central Michigan.Senior Times of South Central Michigan 4642 Capital Avenue SouthwestBattle Creek, MI 49015Phone (269) 979-1411, Fax (269) 979-3474 www.scenepub.com/seniortimesTable of Contents:Resources by AAA Region ............................ 5 Housing Options Defined.......................... 6-10 Independent Living Listing.......................... 12 In-Home Care Listing .................................. 13 Adult Day Care / PACE Listing .................. 13 Assisted Living Listing ................................ 14 Skilled Nursing Listing................................ 15 Meeting Care Needs At Home ..................... 17 Time To Consider Additional Care? ............ 18 Responding To “I Want To Go Home”......... 19 Finding the Right LTC Solution.............. 20-21 Covering Costs For Long Term Housing 22-23 Simplify Your Move To A New Home ......... 24 Advanced Care Planning & Documentation 25Staff:Publisher / Executive Editor .....
