The person who is just beginning to look for senior living may be surprised when. . . they find out that the community where they are looking, has no availability. Some communities like Shorewood Senior Living offer various types of floor plans. Say you want a one bedroom and only need one bathroom, but you do not want to give up the family dining room table. Well, there is an apartment that can accommodate that need. However, you are about six months to a year from being ready to make the commitment.
