Assisted Living in Hollywood, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer housing and services to seniors who need some support with daily things like taking medicines, preparing meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living communities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the most effective way to figure out which one is best for you 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 foods and snacks, assist with things like washing and getting dressed, and a wide variety of activities such as for example health and wellness programs, cultural occasions, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and secure environment among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you exploring assisted living, you’ve very likely come across the acronym ADLs, which stands for the Activities of Daily Living. These include:

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

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’s general health and function. Generally, older adults who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are considering a switch to senior living could be better prospects for independent living. If you have questions about what care type may be the best suit for your loved one, email A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any questions you might have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan facilities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was initially used in the 1980s to spell it out a unique kind of residential living for older adults that was notably not the same as more typical nursing home designs. Assisted living is made for individuals who need a certain amount of assistance with day to day activities but who still want degree of autonomy and who wish to live in an apartment-like environment like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities provide a complete schedule of activities and events and provide multiple meal options to accommodate the varied tastes and preferences, including special eating plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often permitted.

In contrast, the hallmark 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 challenges that require 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a central dining area and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also include short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing communities and long-term care facilities. Since they provide more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for people managing cognitive decline. In fact, 40% of the people who live in the state of Florida are living with some kind of dementia, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the initial stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are effectively supported by assisted living communities while people living with later stages of dementia require the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is certainly different, here are a few characteristics that many assisted living communities share:

  • They provide distinct levels of care and attention, sometimes at varied prices.
  • They provide different living options, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many permit residents to bring their private small pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller sized dogs.
  • They cater to different backgrounds, customs and hobbies and interests. Some facilities, for example, are faith-based, while others are multi-lingual, with activities and dining choices to complement. Still more are made for retired military or college or university alumni and sometimes are even located on or near college or university campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for couples along with individuals.
  • They range in size. Some communities have only 20 residents, while others many have significantly more than 200.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Hollywood, Florida

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

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have a sufficient amount of funds saved to cover long-term care, it’s common for family members to combine money to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Many times, seniors sell their places of residence to pay for senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan may be available to help cover the price of moving while the house is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is designed to pay for senior care expenses. Some policies could cover other expenses which can be incurred during the transition to assisted living, such as for example employing a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and may be eligible for support. Because many benefits go unused, it’s worthwhile to check to discover if your family member or his / her spouse might meet the requirements. To learn more, head to va.gov or see our Guidebook to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are several ways to use life insurance to finance senior living depending on the kind of policy you have. Consult with a life insurance or economic advisor to learn about if this program might work for your needs.

Many families believe that Medicare can help purchase assisted living, but it can only cover short-term care. To find out more, head to Medicare's website.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary widely from community to facility, so that it pays to perform your research. Here are some items that can have an impact on just how much you spend:

  • Type of residence
  • Size of apartment (studio, one- or two-bedroom house)
  • Types of services needed
  • Geographical location
  • Location of the facility
  • Level of luxuriousness

Assisted living communities often charge a flat fee that addresses many basic solutions, with extra costs added on for special services. Various other facilities will charge a service charge for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents pay just for the services they use. In most cases, the monthly base rate covers only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance costs and deposits are also frequently expected. Fees and prices differ by facility, so it’s necessary to talk to facilities you are checking out about their costs and products and services.
