Finding the Right Senior Housing Can Be a Challenge for LGBTQ Elders

Senior Housing Plymouth


Are you worried about finding the right care?

Are you worried you’ll be singled out for being different?


Are you worried about how you’re going to pay for senior housing in Plymouth or the surrounding areas?


According to SeniorLiving.org, LGBTQ elders face many challenges including:


  • “Government social programs such as Social Security and Medicaid do not recognize or support LGBT families.
  • Social Security does not pay survivor benefits to same-sex partners.
  • Unlike married heterosexual spouses, unmarried partners in lifelong relationships cannot receive Social Security benefits.
  • Medicaid does not protect same-sex partners' assets and homes when a spouse enters a long-term care facility.
  • Many same-sex partners are denied visitation rights in hospitals and long-term care facilities.
  • In some senior living communities, LGBT people are openly discriminated against and/or ostracized.”

Best Dog Breeds for Seniors in Independent Living Facilities

independent living Plymouth

Breed aside, you can often find the perfect companion at a shelter. Senior dogs are especially good choices as they’re usually already housebroken and trained. Seniors are often calmer, gentler, easier to train, and more interested in spending time with their owners than chewing on their belongings. They are also less likely to be adopted. So, you may not only be choosing a friend, you may be saving a life. In turn, you may find that your canine companion improves your health and well-being.

Why a senior should make a move to senior living now in a pandemic?

 

assisted living Plymouth

Reasons you should still consider moving to assisted living include:

  • Preparedness security
  • Resident assessment 2x a day for COVID-19 symptoms
  • Nurses around the clock to respond to any sudden illness like COVID-19
  • Chef Prepared meals
  • Medication administered
  • Laundry service


We all know a senior has a better chance to stay healthy and alert if their issues are assessed quickly and medical care is initiated fast. If your senior loved one is in desperate need of assistance, you may want to consider assisted living.
