Assisted Living in Fort Pierce, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and services to seniors who need some assistance with day-by-day things like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with housework. 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 most beneficial for you personally or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No-one assisted living community is like another. At a minimum, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snacks, assist with things such as showering and getting dressed, and a wide selection of activities such as wellness programs, social occasions, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and secure setting among people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

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

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

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's overall health and function. In general, elderly adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are considering a move to senior living could be better prospects for independent living. For those who have questions about what care type is the best suit for your loved one, email A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries you might have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan communities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was first used in the 1980s to spell it out a unique kind 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 expect degree of autonomy and who wish to live in an apartment-like environment such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities provide a complete calendar of activities and events and provide multiple meal options to provide for different tastes and needs, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In comparison, the sign of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the requirements of seniors and others who have health challenges that need to have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally served in a communal dining room and residents reside in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also offer 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 support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer memory care, which is specific support for people dealing with cognitive decline. Actually, 40% of the people who live in the state of Florida are 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 Alzheimer's require the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Whilst every facility is certainly unique, here are a few characteristics which most assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide distinct levels of care, sometimes at varied costs.
  • They provide different living choices, from studios to one-bedroom flats.
  • Many permit people to bring their private household pets, including birds, cats and in some instances little dogs.
  • They cater to differing backgrounds, cultures and hobbies. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while others are multi-lingual, with activities and dining choices to complement. Still more are made for retired armed service or university alumni and may be even located on or near college campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for married couples as well as individuals.
  • They range in size. Some facilities have only 20 residents, while some many have significantly more than 200.

With so many options to choose from, finding the right community can feel overpowering. Our Senior Living Advisors can help. They reside in the communities they work in. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, she or he will ask a few questions to better learn what you are looking for, what your budget is going to be and what particular needs your loved one may have. On top of that their help and advice is free of charge!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

For anyone who is asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you find out more about senior living. Here are some other hints that assisted living may be ideal for both your loved one and your family:

  • You are concerned for your loved one’s health and safety.
  • You are concerned they aren’t eating correctly.
  • You worry about them going out of the house all alone.
  • You notice they are spending much less time with family and friends.
  • You get a phone call or email from a friend who's worried about them.
  • You discover that your loved one may have difficulty remembering people’s names or using a familiar technology like their mobile phone or television remote control.

If these or other symptoms are worrying you, do something. Get in touch with A Place for Mom and talk to a Senior Living Advisor today. They can reply to your questions and assist you to figure out next steps. On top of that, their resources is free of charge!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida provides families with excellent usage of 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 country. To find the information of an assisted living facility in the greater Fort Pierce area, visit the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by service type to get inspection reviews, licensure data, fees and activities assessed against the facility, option of nursing staff, an emergency power plan overview and more.

The state of Florida requires that all new assisted living residents have a medical exam within a month of move-in to identify an individualized care plan. The state also mandates a minimum number of weekly staff member hours determined by the number of people who reside in a facility to ensure care plans will be accommodated.

10 Things to Look For When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

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

  1. Does the personnel connect to the residents?
  2. Is the home clean, odor-free and well looked after?
  3. Is there a procedure set up for assessing the needs of a brand new resident?
  4. Can residents request transportation if they require it?
  5. Are the staff professional and well-mannered?
  6. Are there particular visiting periods or are family and friends welcome anytime?
  7. Will each resident possess a care plan set up?
  8. What happens if a resident’s needs change?
  9. Is there an emergency program in place in case of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the people who live there remind you of your family member?

For more tips on what to search for while touring an assisted living facility, see our Planning and Advice pages.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Fort Pierce, Florida

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

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have ample funds saved to cover long-term care, it’s common for households to combine money to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their homes to pay for senior living. In some instances, a bridge loan could be available to help cover the price of moving while the house is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This unique kind of insurance is made to pay for senior care expenditures. Some policies might cover various other expenditures that can be incurred through the transition to assisted living, such as for example hiring a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and may qualify for help and support. Because benefits go untouched, it’s worthwhile to check to discover if your loved one or his / her spouse may be eligible. To find out more, head 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 methods to use life insurance to invest in senior living based on the kind of policy you hold. Consult a life insurance or financial counselor to understand about if this program might work for your situation.

Many families believe that Medicare will help purchase assisted living, however it can only cover short-term care. To learn more, go to Medicare's site.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

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

  • Type of residence
  • Size of house (studio, one- or two-bedroom house)
  • Types of solutions needed
  • Geographical area
  • Located area of the facility
  • Level of extravagance

Assisted living facilities frequently charge a flat fee that addresses many basic services, with additional fees added on for special services. Additional facilities will charge a fee for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents pay just for the assistance they make use of. In most cases, the monthly base fee includes only lease and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance costs and deposits are also often required. Fees and prices differ by facility, so it’s necessary to talk to facilities you are visiting about their costs and products and services.

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