Assisted Living in Boca Raton, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide housing and care to seniors who need some assistance with daily tasks like taking medicines, making meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living facilities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so touring them may be the best way to determine which one is most beneficial for you or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

Nobody assisted living facility is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, help with things such as showering and getting dressed, and a wide range of activities such as for example wellness programs, cultural events, outings plus much more, all in a safe and secure setting with people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are researching assisted living, you’ve very likely come across the acronym ADLs, which means the Activities of Daily Living. These include:

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

Established in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's overall health and function. In general, elderly adults who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are thinking about a switch to senior living may be better prospects for independent living. If you have questions about what care type is the best suit for your family member, contact A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries you might have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan facilities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was first found in the 1980s to describe a unique sort of residential living for older adults that was significantly not the same as more regular nursing home designs. Assisted living is created for people who need a certain amount of assistance with daily activities but who still want degree of independence and who wish to live in an apartment-like situation such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities provide a full schedule of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to cater to many different tastes and preferences, including special eating plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In comparison, the sign of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the needs of seniors and others who have medical challenges that need to have 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a communal dining room and residents reside in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care communities. Due to the fact that they provide more services, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for individuals dealing with cognitive impairment. In fact, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are currently living with some form of dementia, based on the National Center for Assisted Living.
