Assisted Living in Homestead, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and care to seniors who need some assistance with daily tasks such as taking medicines, preparing meals and other personal care needs. Assisted living facilities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the ideal way to determine which one is most beneficial for you or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living facility is like another. At the very least, assisted living provides individually minded seniors living accommodations, meals, help with things such as showering and getting dressed as well as a wide variety of activities such as for example wellness programs, social occasions, outings plus much more, all in a safe environment among their friends.

What Exactly Are ADLs?

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

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

Introduced in the 1950s, ADLs assess an individual’s overall health and function. Generally, senior adults who can take care of ADLs on their own but who are considering a move to senior living could be better applicants for independent living.

If you have questions in what care type is the best match for your family member, contact A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any questions you might have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan communities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The phrase “assisted living” was initially used in the 1980s to explain a new sort of residential living for older adults that was significantly different from more traditional nursing home models. Assisted living is designed for individuals who need some help with some daily activities but who still desire a specific level of self-sufficiency and who would like to reside in an apartment-like environment such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities offer a full calendar of activities and events and provide a variety of meal choices to serve the different tastes and preferences, including restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be allowed.

In comparison, the sign of nursing homes is that they supply skilled nursing care. They are made to fulfill the needs of seniors and other people who have medical types of conditions that require 24x7 medical attention. Meals or snacks are generally served in a common eating hall and residents reside in personal or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also present short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent treatment centers, nursing centers, qualified nursing services and long-term care facilities. Because they provide more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may offer memory care, which is specific support for individuals living with cognitive loss. In fact, 40% of the individuals who live in assisted living in the state of Florida are currently living with some kind of dementia, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the earlier levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best served by assisted living communities while people living with later levels of dementia or Alzheimer's require the health care of a nursing facillity.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community can be different, here are a few elements that most assisted living communities share:

  • They offer different degrees of care, occasionally at different price points.
  • They offer different living options, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow people to bring their personal pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller dogs.
  • They focus on differing backgrounds, traditions and hobbies. Some communities, for example, are faith-based, while others are multilingual, with activities and dining choices to match. Some are created for retired armed service veterans or college alumni and so are situated on or near bases and campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for couples along with individuals.
  • They vary in size. Some facilities have only 20 residents, while some many have more than 200.

With so many options to choose from, choosing the best place can seem complicated. Our Senior Living Advisors can assist. They reside in the states and cities they work in. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, she or he will ask a few pre-determined questions to better understand what you are interested in, what your budget is and what unique needs your family member may have. On top of that their help and advice is free!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

In the event you are asking this question, it’s likely that that it’s time you learn more about senior living. Below are a few other indications that assisted living may be correct for both your family member and you.

  • You are worried for your loved family member's safety.
  • You are concerned they aren’t eating correctly.
  • You get worried about them going out of the house by themselves.
  • You notice they are spending much less time with friends and family.
  • You get a phone call or note from a friend who is concerned about them.
  • You observe that your loved one may have difficulty remembering people’s names or utilizing a familiar technology like their phone or TV remote control.

If these or other indications are worrying you, take action. Contact A Place for Mom and speak to a Senior Living Advisor today. They can reply to your questions and assist you to find out next steps. On top of that, their knowledge is free!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida provides families with exceptional usage of its assisted living inspection and ratings records. According to our state-by-state review of state information, Florida’s assisted living regulation and inspection program is one of the most transparent in the nation. To find the information of an assisted living community in the wider Homestead area, go to the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and query by service type to obtain inspection reports, licensure data, fines and activities assessed against the facility, availability of nursing staff, an emergency plan overview and more.

The state of Florida requires that new assisted living residents have a medical evaluation within 30 days of move-in to decide on an personalized care plan. The state also mandates a minimum number of weekly worker hours dependant on the number of individuals who reside in a facility to make sure care plans can be accommodated.

10 Things to Think About When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

The obvious way to figure out if an assisted living facility is best for your loved one is to visit a facility -- or better yet, four or five of them! Here are a few factors to take note of when you visit:

  1. Does the staff interact with the residents?
  2. Is the home clean, odor free and well looked after?
  3. Is there a process set up for assessing the needs of a brand new resident?
  4. Can residents arrange for transportation if they require it?
  5. Are the personnel professional and polite?
  6. Are there specific visiting hours or are family and friends welcome at any time?
  7. Will each resident have a care plan set up?
  8. What happens if a resident’s needs change?
  9. Is there an emergency strategy in place in the event of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the individuals who live there remind you of your loved one?

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior does not have a sufficient amount of money saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for family members to pool funds to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Many times, seniors sell their house to pay for senior living. In some instances, a bridge loan could be available to help cover the cost of moving while the home is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This special kind of insurance is made to pay for senior care expenses. Some plans may cover other expenses that can be incurred during the transition to assisted living, for example hiring a case manager or treatment advisor.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and may be eligible for support. Because many benefits go unused, so it’s worthwhile to check to find out if your loved one or his/ her spouse might qualify. To find out more, head to va.gov or download our Guidebook to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for additional information.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are many ways to use life insurance coverage to pay for senior living based on the kind of policy you have. Consult a life insurance or financial advisor to learn about whether this option might work for your situation.

Many people believe that Medicare will help pay for assisted living, however it only covers short-term care. To learn more, head to medicare.gov.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs fluctuate broadly from facility to facility, so it pays to carry out your research. Here are some reasons that may impact just how much you pay:

  • Kind of residence
  • Size of apartment (studio, one- or two-bedroom accommodation)
  • Types of providers needed
  • Geographical area
  • Location of the community
  • Level of high end amenities

Assisted living communities often charge a flat amount that addresses many basic services, with supplemental costs applied for particular services. Additional facilities will charge a fee for each service, referred to as a la carte payment, so that residents pay just for the services they make use of. As a rule, the monthly base rate covers only rent and meals, with care charged separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often required. Fees and prices vary by community, so it’s essential to ask communities you are visiting about their costs and options.
