Assisted Living in Homosassa, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide lodging and care to seniors who want some support with daily things like taking medicines, preparing meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living communities come in all shapes and sizes, so visiting them may be the best way to determine which one is most beneficial for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

Nobody assisted living community is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like bathing and dressing, and an array of activities such as for example health and wellness programs, cultural events, excursions and much more, all in a safe and sound setting with people their age.

What Are ADLs?

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

  • 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

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's general health and function. Generally, older adults who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are thinking about a move to senior living could be better candidates for independent living. In case you have questions about what care type may be the best match for your loved one, 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 facilities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was first used in the 1980s to describe a unique kind of residential living for older adults that was significantly different from more traditional nursing home models. Assisted living is created for individuals who want some help with daily activities but who still would like degree of independence and who would like to reside in an apartment-like environment like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities offer a complete calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal options to cater to many different tastes and needs, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the needs of seniors and other people who have health conditions that must have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally served in a central dining hall and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also include 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 offer more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may offer memory care, which is specialized support for individuals managing cognitive decline. In fact, 40% of the individuals who live in the state of Florida are currently living with some type of dementia, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the beginning levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are greatest supported by assisted living communities while people living with later levels of dementia require the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is normally distinct, here are a few attributes that a lot of assisted living facilities share:

  • They offer different degrees of care, occasionally at different costs.
  • They provide different living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow residents to bring their own small pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller sized dogs.
  • They cater to differing backgrounds, traditions and hobbies and interests. Some communities, for example, are faith-based, while others are multilingual, with activities and dining options to complement. Still more are created for retired military or university alumni and sometimes are even located on or near college campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for partners along with individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some communities have only 20 residents, while some many have more than 200.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Homosassa, Florida

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

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior does not have a sufficient amount of funds saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for households to pool money to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their house to pay for senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan may be available to help cover the price of moving while the house is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is designed to include senior care expenditures. Some policies might cover various other expenses that can be incurred while in 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 support. Because benefits are untouched, it’s worth it to check to see if your loved one or their partner might meet the criteria. To find out more, go to va.gov or see our Instruction to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are several methods to use life insurance to invest in senior living depending on the type of policy you hold. Consult with a life insurance or economic counselor to learn about if this option might work for your situation.

Many family members assume that Medicare will help purchase assisted living, but it really can only cover short-term care. To find out more, head to Medicare's website.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

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

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

Assisted living communities frequently charge a flat fee that addresses many basic services, with additional costs added on for particular services. Various other facilities will charge a rate for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, so that residents only pay for the solutions they use. In most cases, the monthly base fee includes only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance charges and deposits are also often expected. Charges and rates differ by community, so it’s essential to question facilities you are researching about their costs and services.
