Assisted Living in Aventura, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer lodging and services to seniors who want some support with day-by-day things like taking medicines, preparing meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living communities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so touring them may be the best way to figure out which one is best for you personally or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living facility is like another. At a minimum, assisted living gives independently minded seniors foods and snack foods, help with things such as bathing and dressing, and a wide range of activities such as for example health and fitness programs, cultural occasions, outings and much more, all in a safe and sound environment among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are exploring assisted living, you’ve probably run into the acronym ADLs, which stands for the Activities of Daily Living. These include:

  • Bathing and showering
  • Toileting
  • Getting dressed
  • Feeding (but not meal preparation)
  • Continence
  • Functional mobility, which include getting back in and out of a bed or chair

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs assess an individual’s general health and function. Generally, older adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are thinking about a switch to senior living could be better prospects for independent living. If you have questions in what care type may be the best match for your loved one, call A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any questions you may have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan facilities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was initially found in the 1980s to spell it out a new kind of residential living for old adults that was obviously different from more regular nursing home designs. Assisted living is designed for individuals who need a certain amount of help with day to day activities but who still would like degree of autonomy and who want to reside in an apartment-like situation such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living facilities offer a full calendar of activities and events and provide multiple meal choices to cater to varied tastes and needs, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In contrast, the sign of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the needs of seniors and other people who have medical conditions that require 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a communal dining room and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care communities. Since they provide more help and support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may provide memory care, which is specific support for people dealing with cognitive impairment. Actually, 40% of the people who live in the state of Florida are living with some kind of Alzheimer's, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the earlier levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best supported by assisted living communities while people living with later levels of dementia require the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every facility can be different, here are some features that many assisted living communities share:

  • They offer assorted levels of care, occasionally at different prices.
  • They offer different living choices, from studios to one-bedroom flats.
  • Many permit people to bring their personal small pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, cultures and hobbies and interests. Some communities, for example, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining choices to complement. Still more are made for retired armed service or college or university alumni and may be even located on or near college or university campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for spouses as well as individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some facilities have as few as 20 residents, while some many have significantly more than 200.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary widely from facility to facility, so it pays to perform your research. Here are a few factors that can have an impact on how much you pay:

  • Kind of residence
  • Size of apartment (studio, one- or two-bedroom house)
  • Types of solutions needed
  • Geographical location
  • Location of the facility
  • Level of luxuriousness

Assisted living communities frequently charge a set rate that addresses many basic services, with additional fees added on for particular services. Additional communities will charge a rate for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents pay just for the support they make use of. In most cases, the monthly base cost includes only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often expected. Charges and rates can vary by facility, therefore it’s important to question communities you are investigating about their costs and services.
