Assisted Living in Boynton Beach, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer lodging and care to seniors who need some assistance with day-by-day tasks like taking medicines, preparing meals and keeping up with cleaning. Assisted living communities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them may be the best way to figure out which one is best for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No-one assisted living community is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like showering and dressing, and a wide selection of activities such as wellness programs, cultural events, outings plus much more, all in a safe and secure setting with people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you considering assisted living, you’ve very likely come across the acronym ADLs, which means the Activities of Daily Living. These consist of:

  • 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 seat

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate a person's general health and function. In general, older adults who can take care of ADLs on their own but who are considering a move to senior living could be better candidates for independent living. For those who have questions about what care type is the best suit for your family member, call A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries you may have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan communities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The term “assisted living” was initially found in the 1980s to describe a innovative sort of residential living for older adults that was significantly not the same as more traditional nursing home models. Assisted living is made for individuals who want a certain amount of assistance with daily activities but who still desire degree of independence 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 communities provide a full calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal options to focus on varied tastes and needs, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often permitted.

In contrast, the sign of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the requirements of seniors and others who have health conditions that need to have 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a central dining hall and residents live in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care communities. Because they offer more support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer memory care, which is specialized support for individuals managing cognitive impairment. In fact, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are living with some type of Alzheimer's, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best served by assisted living communities while people living with later stages of Alzheimer's require the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is certainly different, below are a few characteristics that almost all assisted living communities share:

  • They offer distinct degrees of care and attention, occasionally at varied prices.
  • They offer assorted living options, from studios to one-bedroom flats.
  • Many allow people to bring their personal small pets, including birds, cats and in some instances little dogs.
  • They focus on differing backgrounds, cultures and interests. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multi-lingual, with activities and dining options to complement. Still more are made for retired military or university alumni and may be even located on or near college campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for married couples as well as individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some communities have only 20 residents, while some many have significantly more than 200.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Boynton Beach, Florida

How to finance assisted living is one of the most typical questions families have if they meet with one of our Senior Living Advisors. Here are a few of the most common financing resources for senior living:

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior does not have ample funds saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for households to pool money to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their house to pay for senior living. In some instances, a bridge loan could be available to help cover the expense of moving while the home is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is made to pay for senior care expenses. Some policies may cover other expenditures which can be incurred through the transition to assisted living, such as for example employing a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the armed service and may be eligible for help and support. Because benefits are untouched, it’s worth it to check to see if your loved one or his or her spouse may meet the requirements. For more information, go to va.gov or see our Guidebook to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are many methods to use life insurance to invest in senior living depending on the kind of policy you hold. Consult with a life insurance or economic advisor to learn about if this option might work for your situation.

Many families believe that Medicare will help pay for assisted living, but it really can only cover short-term care. For more information, head to Medicare's website.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary broadly from facility to community, so that it pays to do your research. Below are a few factors that can impact how much you spend:

  • Type of residence
  • Size of apartment (studio, one- or two-bedroom house)
  • Types of solutions needed
  • Geographical area
  • Location of the community
  • Level of opulence

Assisted living communities frequently charge a flat rate that addresses many basic services, with additional costs added on for special services. Additional communities will charge a fee for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, so that residents only pay for the services they make use of. In general, the monthly base rate covers only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance costs and deposits are also often required. Charges and prices can vary by facility, so it’s essential to question facilities you are visiting about their costs and services.

For more information regarding assisted living costs and fee structures, call a Senior Living Advisor at A Place for Mom.
