As the number of senior adults nationwide and in the Bay Area continues to grow, so does the demand for residential options. The following list is not comprehensive.


Independent living: communities cater to older adults with limited care needs. Most include amenities, such as fitness programs, housekeeping and communal meals.

Assisted-living: communities specialize in providing care and supervision. These facilities frequently offer a full range of amenities as well as limited medical assistance.

Memory care: facilities specialize in providing care to seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive issues. Staff members are trained to help residents manage these diseases.

Hospice care: intended to relieve symptoms and suffering associated with a terminal illness in those who have been given six months or less to live. The patient must choose to forgo further curative treatment.

Nursing home/skilled nursing: facilities provide care to those with illnesses or mental conditions requiring full-time monitoring and medical care.

Home Care: services offer medical care and other services to seniors who wish to remain at home. Staff members help with care, such as medication administration, meals and transportation to medical appointments. Service offerings vary by company.

Mixed-use: facilities offer some or all of these services.
