What Does Senior Living Mean?

Senior living involves living communities for seniors 55 and older. Known as independent retirement communities or continuing care retirement communities, senior living communities provide their residents with continual care. However, people living in these communities have the freedom to use third-party home health care services to help with day-to-day activities and care.

Many seniors who reside in independent living units (typically apartments) usually don’t require assisted living services or home care such as dressing, bathing, feeding, etc.

Most aging adults who move into the community still lead very active and independent lives. However, as their mobility and health can change over time, aging adults can have caregivers come to their apartments to meet their advanced care needs.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
