Assisted Living in Hialeah Gardens, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer housing and services to seniors who want some support with day-by-day tasks like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living facilities come in all shapes and sizes, so touring them may be the most effective way to figure out which one is most beneficial for you personally or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

Nobody assisted living facility is like another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like showering and dressing, and a wide variety of activities such as health and wellness programs, cultural events, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and sound environment with people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

If you are considering assisted living, you’ve probably come across the acronym ADLs, which means the Activities of Daily Living. These consist of:

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

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate a person's general health and function. In general, older adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are thinking about a move to senior living may be better prospects for independent living. If you have questions about what care type may be the best fit for your family member, 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 facilities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The term “assisted living” was initially found in the 1980s to describe a innovative kind of residential living for old adults that was significantly different from more traditional nursing home designs. Assisted living is created for individuals who want some support with day to day activities but who still would like level of autonomy and who wish to reside in an apartment-like environment like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities provide a complete schedule of activities and events and provide multiple meal choices to cater to varied tastes and preferences, including special eating plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In contrast, the sign of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the needs of seniors and others who have medical conditions that need to have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a central dining hall and residents reside in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also include short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care facilities. Because they provide more help and support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living communities.

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

How to Pay for Senior Living In Hialeah Gardens, 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 funding sources for senior living:

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have ample funds saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for families to pool funds to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their homes to fund senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan could be offered to help cover the expense of moving while the home is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This unique kind of insurance is made to include senior care expenses. Some policies might cover various other expenditures that can be incurred during the transition to assisted living, such as hiring 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 many benefits go untouched, it’s worthwhile to check to see if your loved one or his or her spouse may qualify. To find out more, go to va.gov or see our Guide to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for additional information.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are several ways to use life insurance to finance senior living determined by the kind of policy you hold. Consult a life insurance or economic counselor to understand about if this option might work for your situation.

Many households expect 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 to perform your research. Here are a few items that may have an effect on how much you spend:

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

Assisted living communities often charge a set fee that addresses many basic solutions, with additional charges added on for particular services. Various other facilities will charge a fee for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, so that residents pay just for the support they make use of. Typically, the monthly base cost includes only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often required. Charges and rates can vary by community, therefore it’s necessary to question facilities you are researching about their costs and products and services.

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