Living Options

Whether it’s just time to make the move to an assisted facility & ease the stresses of living alone or you’ve received a doctor’s directive & your family has made the difficult decision to explore senior housing for your loved one; you are now faced with the overwhelming task of educating yourself on available options and unfamiliar terminology.

There are a myriad of options that range from round-the-clock care to independent communities where you or your loved one can come and go as they please. And with that, there are also a multitude of financial concerns to navigate, all while you are trying to balance decision on what’s best for you or your family member.

Remember this is a choice that affects everyone. What is the best fit for your collective family?


Independent Living refers to simplifying life with an easy-to-maintain private apartment or home within a community of other like-minded seniors in an engaging environment best suited to the individual. As the name implies, Independent Living is just that: the ability to maintain one’s residence & lifestyle, but often with tasks like weekly cleaning & daily cooking taken care of if or when one chooses. This also provides peace of mind that one can age in place, with living assistance readily available should the future require it.

Board & Care Home

Board and Care Homes are more of a typical house setting, often in a 6 bed home. These homes often provide a greater level of hands-on care ideal for more delicate situations and can often work greater care needs around budget constraints. These smaller home settings typically include meals, housekeeping, laundry, medication management, personal care, and include a limited amount of social activities.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living provides help taking care of oneself on a widely sliding scale based on the individual’s needs in a cost-effective and dignified living environment. Clients receive help with everyday tasks and often some health care in a residential community that suits them best. We like to emphasis an Assisted Living philosophy that honors the resident’s independence, i.e. “we will help you take care of yourself” over “we will take care of you.”

Memory/Alzheimer's Care Centers

Memory Care refers to residential settings designed especially for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Often part of a greater community, Memory Care environments focus on the safety of the resident and offer the extra specialized care required as Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia progress beyond what many families can adequately accommodate at home.

Respite Care

Respite Care refers to short term care, with a stay often under 30 days. ESP knows the importance of the peace of mind Respite Care can provide whether it’s to provide the extra help needed coming out of an illness or medical procedure, or simply to offer primary caregivers an opportunity to handle other life matters that come up or even take a vacation.

We know caring for a loved one is a full time commitment. Situations often arise, albeit a vacation or otherwise that present a difficult situation and subsequent void in the chain of care. Through Respite Care, ESP has you confidently covered when you seek temporary care for your family member or yourself.
