Welcome to Live Young at Heart
When was the last time you visited a nursing home? If it’s been awhile you might be surprised by what you find. Nursing homes have changed dramatically in the last few years. In fact, there is a vast continuum of aging services options available to seniors like never before.
Consumers are calling for less institutional, more home like care settings and non-profit aging service providers are answering the call. In response to consumer demand, not-for-profit providers are offering more freedom of choice with regard to how and where seniors receive services. Care is shifting from traditional institutions and segregated services to new nursing home models, independent housing with supports, residential care options such as assisted living and an array of home-and community-based services.

At a time when long term care is under intense scrutiny, not-for-profit organizations are consistently providing more hands-on care and developing new, more creative ways to meet the needs of their residents.
