|| How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living Community? 
|| What Services are available in Assisted Living? 

Assisted Living in Beverly Hills, CA

What Is Assisted Living?

An assisted living facility provides help with the daily tasks seniors need to live healthy and full lives while maintaining their independence. These tasks may include bathing, dressing and other personal care. Some household care such as laundry or meal preparation may be provided. Assistance can even extend outside the home, such as help with errands or transportation to medical appointments.

It's important to note that assisted living is not the same as nursing care. While assisted living facilities may help seniors get to their doctor visits, the services they offer focus on daily living.

What Is Senior Living Like in Beverly Hills, CA?

Home to the famous Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, CA, is the epitome of glamour and style. Your family can enjoy a wealth of shopping and dining experiences as well as take tours of Hollywood and celebrity homes in the area.

It's not all about the stars, though. Beverly Hills has a rich community life. Enjoy live concerts during the summer at the Beverly Canon Gardens, or experience the grace of classical performances at the Mansion at Greystone Estate. The community hosts various such as art instruction, bingo and various exercise classes designed to help senior stay active and fit.

Whether your loved one likes to be in the center of it all or would prefer to live on the outskirts of all the hubbub, A Place for Mom can connect you with care providers in and around this beautiful city.

What Are the Signs It's Time for Assisted Living?

It's normal to be unsure about when to broach the topic of getting help for your loved one. Here are a few signals that it may be time to look for assisted living.

  • Stark Changes in Behavior - When elderly parents become aggressive or easily agitated, this could be a cue that daily care tasks may be getting to be too much for them to handle on their own. Those experiencing dementia may engage in Sundowning, agitation that becomes more obvious as the evening approaches. Increased forgetfulness or a significant loss of focus can also be signs that help is needed.
  • Safety Concerns - Neglecting to turn off the stove or not paying attention when driving are indications that aging relatives are not safe on their own. If loved ones have incidents that put their safety or the safety of others at risk, it can help to know someone else is looking out for them.
  • Caretaker Stress - The onset or increase of panic attacks, avoidance or hyper-vigilance extremes, or a general feeling of overwhelm is common in caretakers as loved ones' needs increase. If your own stress level has spiked with the added responsibility of caring for an aging parent, it may be time to admit that both of you could use some assistance.

What Are ADLs and IADLs?

Activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living are those tasks in which adults need to be proficient in order to live alone. ADLs include the basic self-care that young children learn, such as walking, transferring from one position to another and using the toilet. Adults who live alone should also be able to bathe, feed, groom or dress themselves. As people grow, they also learn IADLs, such as grocery shopping, budgeting, housekeeping, meal preparation and transportation.

Aging seniors may start to experience difficulty with ADLs and IADLS. This can manifest as forgetting to keep up with these tasks or exhibiting an inability to complete the task. A decline can indicate a decline in mental or physical function. When this happens, having assistance with these tasks can help them maintain a great deal of their independence while staying safe. Assisted living is designed to help them overcome the challenges they are facing.

What Services Are Available?

Just like there are a wide range of activities in the city itself, there are a plethora of services provided by the different facilities in our network. They range from providing basic daily living assistance to extended services such as memory or hospice care.

Depending on your loved one's needs, you may consider facilities that offer:

  • Basic housekeeping, such as vacuuming, dusting and general cleaning
  • Onsite laundry service
  • Restaurant-style dining
  • Transportation services
  • Self-care amenities, such as in-house salons or spa facilities

Assisted living also offers opportunities for socializing. Many of the centers in our network have community areas and activities, such as game nights, book clubs and group outings.

How Much Does Assisted Living Cost in Beverly Hills, CA?

The average cost of assisted living in the city of Beverly Hills is around $5000 a month. Those who need only basic care may be able to pay significantly less, while those who need memory or dementia care can expect their costs to increase. Factors that affect price differences include amenities offered, size and style of the space, and level of privacy desired.

How Can I Pay for Assisted Living?

The expense of assisted living can be daunting to families who are new to the process. There are several options for paying for the long-term care your loved one needs:

  • Savings or personal income - Many people include assisted living in their financial planning. This is often the simplest way to pay for care.
  • Insurance - If your loved one has a long-term care policy, it may cover their assisted living expenses. It may also be possible to sell a life insurance policy for a cash settlement. Talk to the agent who handles the policies to see if these options are viable means of payment.
  • Property investments - Loved ones often move out of homes they own to join their new assisted living communities. If doing so leaves the home vacant, they can use the money they receive from the sale of the home to pay their expenses at the facility. If a partner is still living at home and they have full ownership of the home, a reverse mortgage may be a good option to consider.
  • Veteran benefits - The Aid and Attendance benefit can help with long-term care for veterans who served during certain wartime periods. There may also be assistance available for widows of veterans.

You may have many questions about how to afford assisted living, and the good news is that you don't have to navigate the process alone. A Place for Mom has Senior Living Advisors who may be able to help you find resources.

How Do I Tour Assisted Living Facilities?

When you arrange a tour at a facility, it is important to know what you expect to get out of it. A tour is an opportunity not just to gain information but also to get a taste of what living there is like. Here are a few things to look for when you tour:

  • First impression - When you enter the facility, pause to register how it appears. Does it look welcoming and cheery? How does it smell? Does the staff greet you? Do the residents look happy? What safety features do you notice? Your first impression can tell you a lot about how well the facility is cleaned, maintained and managed. Make sure to add any questions that your impression brings to mind to your list of information you want to gather.
  • Daily life - Take the time to experience some of the activities your loved one would encounter while living there. Have a meal or visit during a community event. This can often give you a clearer picture of the facility than simply walking through it. Ask your guide how your loved one's specific needs would be met.
  • Community feedback - People who already live there are a good source of information. Talk with other residents and their families to gauge how happy they are with the services they receive.

How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living Facility?

There are many facilities in the Beverly Hills area to choose from when it's time to embrace this next stage of your loved one's life. Each offers its own unique set of amenities and services, and the decision process can be a little daunting. To help you narrow your search and find the place that suits your aging parent's needs, consider the following factors:

  • Your loved one's current needs - What specific tasks does your loved one need help completing on a daily basis? It may seem smart to choose the place that offers the most services overall, but it's better to focus on the facilities that cater to the particular challenges your family member is facing.
  • Your loved one's personality - Searching for an assisted living facility is similar to searching for any home. You want your loved one to feel comfortable and at ease, so look for a place that seems to fit his or her temperament. If, for example, your dad thrives on the company of others, it makes sense to look for a facility that not only meets his basic care needs but also caters to his desire for an active social life.
  • Your loved one's potential future needs - While no one can completely predict the future, it is useful to consider how your loved one's needs may change as he or she ages. If mobility issues or memory loss become more advanced, is the facility you've chosen still going to be a suitable home?

A Place for Mom can help guide you through this important decision. Our free service includes assistance finding a place that matches your loved one's needs, setting up facility tours, evaluating costs and making the move-in go smoothly. Our local advisors are eager to help you find your loved one's next home.
