Full Answer

To find a senior home, begin by accessing an online database such as Seniorhomes.com or Caring.com. At these sites, users can search for senior-living communities and homes by location as well as type. There are many types of senior homes, including, but not limited to, assisted living, independent living, nursing homes and retirement communities. Finding the right senior home depends on the individual's specific situation, including the abilities, desires, independence level, age and medical needs of a particular senior.

Some senior homes even specialize in housing, treating and caring for seniors with memory loss due to Alzheimer's disease and dementia. After entering the required information into one of the databases, it provides a list of nearby senior homes, as well as brief descriptions of each location. The databases also provide addresses and phone numbers to get the interested party started. Follow up by searching online for reviews of specific homes, by making phones calls and visiting locations.
