Assisted Living in Bradenton, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and services to seniors who need some support with daily tasks like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with cleaning. Assisted living facilities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the most effective way to determine which one is best for you personally or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No-one assisted living facility is similar to another. At a minimum, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like washing and dressing, and a wide selection of activities such as wellness programs, cultural events, excursions and much more, all in a safe and secure setting among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are researching assisted living, you’ve very likely run into the acronym ADLs, which stands for the Activities of Daily Living. These consist of:

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

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's general health and function. Generally, elderly adults who can take care of ADLs on their own but who are thinking about a switch to senior living could be better candidates for independent living. When you have questions about what care type is the best match for your loved one, 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 facilities and even more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was initially found in the 1980s to describe a unique kind of residential living for old adults that was notably different from more typical nursing home designs. Assisted living is designed for people who want some help with day to day activities but who still expect level of independence and who wish to live in an apartment-like environment like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities provide a full calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to accommodate the varied tastes and needs, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In contrast, the sign of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the requirements of seniors and other people who have health conditions that necessitate 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a communal dining hall and residents reside in individual 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 communities 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 offer memory care, which is specific support for people managing cognitive decline. Actually, 40% of the people who live in the state of Florida are currently living with some type of Alzheimer's, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the initial levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are effectively served by assisted living communities while people living with later stages of dementia need the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is normally distinct, here are some characteristics that almost all assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide different degrees of care, sometimes at varied prices.
  • They offer assorted living options, from studios to one-bedroom flats.
  • Many allow residents to bring their private household pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, cultures and hobbies and interests. Some facilities, for instance, are faith-based, while others are multi-lingual, with activities and dining choices to match. Still more are designed for retired military or college alumni and may be even located on or near college campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for spouses along with individuals.
  • They range in size. Some facilities have only 20 residents, while some many have significantly more than 200.

Because many benefits go unused, it’s worth it to check to discover if your loved one or his / her partner might meet the criteria.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary broadly from community to facility, so it pays off to perform your research. Here are some items that may have an effect on just 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 community
  • Level of luxury

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