Assisted Living in Greenacres, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer lodging and care to seniors who need some help with day-by-day things like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living facilities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the most effective way to determine which one is best for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

Nobody assisted living community is like another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, help with things such as washing and dressing, and an array of activities such as wellness programs, social events, outings plus much more, all in a safe and secure setting among people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you researching assisted living, you’ve most likely come across the acronym ADLs, which means the Activities of Daily Living. These include:

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

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's general health and function. In general, elderly 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. Should you have questions about what care type may be the best suit for your family member, email 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 spell it out a innovative sort of residential living for old adults that was notably different from more regular nursing home designs. Assisted living is designed for individuals who need a certain amount of support with daily activities but who still would like degree of autonomy 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 complete calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to provide for many different tastes and needs, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In comparison, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the requirements of seniors and others who have medical challenges that must have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a communal dining room and residents reside in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing communities and long-term care communities. Because they provide more help and support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for people dealing with cognitive impairment. In fact, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are currently living with some type of dementia, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the initial levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are greatest supported by assisted living facilities while people living with later levels of dementia require the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is normally unique, here are a few characteristics that almost all assisted living communities share:

  • They provide distinct degrees of care and attention, occasionally at varied costs.
  • They offer assorted living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow residents to bring their private household pets, including birds, cats and in some instances little dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, customs and interests. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining options to complement. Still more are designed for retired armed service or university alumni and sometimes are even located on or near university or college campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for married couples along with individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some communities have as few as 20 residents, while some many have more than 200.
