SeniorGuidance.org provides comprehensive resources on various senior living options, including: assisted living facilities, senior living communities, nursing homes, independent living communities, continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) and all other long term senior care options, including memory care such as Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Their website discusses all services available for seniors living in Ohio, outlines helpful state programs for seniors and allows them to find assisted living facilities in every city, village, township and county in Ohio.
Senior Living Help is an organization that provides senior living assistance to the elderly. Senior Living Help assists Ohio senior citizens, their family members and caregivers in finding appropriate senior living and care facilities. Many elderly adults are no longer able to be cared for at home, so finding a senior living facility with caring and loving staff becomes necessary. This is when seniors and their families can come to us for help.
