Assisted Living in Cape Coral, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer housing and care to seniors who want some support with day-by-day things like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with cleaning. Assisted living facilities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the most effective way to figure out which one is most beneficial for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

Nobody assisted living facility is similar to another. At a minimum, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, help with things like washing and getting dressed, and a wide range of activities such as for example wellness programs, cultural occasions, excursions and much more, all in a safe and secure setting among people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

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

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

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’s overall health and function. In general, older adults who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are considering a move to senior living may be better candidates for independent living. In case you have questions about what care type may be the best suit for your family member, contact 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 even 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 notably not the same as more traditional nursing home designs. Assisted living is made for individuals who need a certain amount of help with day to day activities but who still expect degree of independence and who want to live in an apartment-like environment such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities provide a full schedule of activities and events and offer multiple meal options to cater to varied tastes and preferences, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In comparison, the hallmark 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 challenges that need to have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally served in a central dining hall and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also include short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care facilities. Since they offer more help and support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may provide memory care, which is specific support for people managing cognitive impairment. Actually, 40% of the people who reside in the state of Florida are currently living with some kind of Alzheimer's, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the earlier stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are greatest supported by assisted living facilities while people living with later stages of dementia require the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is certainly different, here are some features that a majority of assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide assorted degrees of care, occasionally at different costs.
  • They provide different living choices, from studios to one-bedroom flats.
  • Many permit residents to bring their personal small pets, including birds, cats and in some instances little dogs.
  • They focus on differing backgrounds, traditions and hobbies. Some facilities, for instance, are faith-based, while others are multilingual, with activities and dining options to complement. Still more are designed for retired military or university alumni and may be even situated on or near university campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for partners along with individuals.
  • They range in size. Some communities have as few as 20 residents, while some many have more than 200.

With so many options to choose from, choosing the best community can feel mind-boggling. Our Senior Living Advisors will assist. They reside in the communities they work in. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, she or he will ask a few pre-determined questions to better determine what you are looking for, what your budget will be and what special wants your loved one may have. Best of all their help and advice is free!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

In the event you are asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you find out more about senior living. Here are some other signs that assisted living may be ideal for both your loved one and your family:

  • You are concerned for your loved one’s well-being.
  • You are concerned they aren’t eating properly.
  • You feel concerned about them leaving the house all alone.
  • You notice they are spending much less time with friends and family.
  • You get a telephone call or email from a friend who's worried about them.
  • You observe that your family member may have trouble remembering people’s names or working with a well-known technology like their mobile phone or TV remote control.

If these or additional indicators are troubling you, take action. Get in touch with A Place for Mom and talk to a Senior Living Advisor today. They are able to reply to your questions and help you find out next steps. Best of all, their knowledge is cost-free!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida supplies families with excellent access to its assisted living inspection and ratings records. Based on our state-by-state review of state records , Florida’s assisted living regulation and inspection system is among the most transparent in the nation. To find the information of an assisted living facility in the wider Cape Coral area, visit the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by service type to get inspection reviews, licensure data, penalties and actions assessed against the service, availability of nursing staff, an emergency power plan summary and more.

The state of Florida requires that all new assisted living residents have a medical exam within 4 weeks of move-in to determine an individualized care strategy. The state also mandates a baseline number of weekly employee hours in line with the number of individuals who live in a facility to make sure care plans will be accommodated.

10 Things to Look For When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

The easiest method to figure out if an assisted living community is best for your loved one is to tour one -- or even better, four or five of them! Here are a few things to take note of when you visit:

  1. Does the personnel interact with the residents?
  2. Is the facility clean, odor-free and well looked after?
  3. Is there a procedure in place for assessing the requirements of a brand new resident?
  4. Can residents request transportation if they need it?
  5. Are the staff professional and well-mannered?
  6. Are there specific visiting periods or are family and friends welcome at any time?
  7. Does each resident possess a care plan in place?
  8. What happens if a resident’s needs change?
  9. Is there a crisis plan in place in the event of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the individuals who live there remind you of your loved one?

For more tips about what to look for while touring an assisted living facility, see our Planning and Advice webpages.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Cape Coral, Florida

How to finance assisted living is among the most common questions families have when they meet with one of our Senior Living Advisors. Here are some of the most typical financing options for senior living:

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior does not have a sufficient amount of funds saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for families to combine funds to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their house to pay for senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan may be available to help cover the cost of moving while the home is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is designed to cover senior care expenditures. Some policies might cover other expenses that can be incurred through the transition to assisted living, such as for example acquiring a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and may qualify for support. Because benefits go unused, it’s worthwhile to check to see if your family member or their spouse might meet the requirements. For more information, go to va.gov or see our Information to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are many ways to use life insurance to invest in senior living depending on the type of policy you hold. Consult a life insurance or economic consultant to understand about if this option might work for your circumstances.

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

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

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

  • Kind of residence
  • Size of house (studio, one- or two-bedroom apartment)
  • Types of solutions needed
  • Geographical location
  • Located area of the community
  • Level of luxury

Assisted living communities frequently charge a flat rate that covers many basic services, with extra charges added on for special services. Various other facilities will charge a rate for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents only pay for the services they make use of. In most cases, the monthly base rate consists of only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance charges and deposits are also often required. Charges and prices differ by community, therefore it’s beneficial to talk to facilities you are investigating about their costs and services.

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