|| 10 Things to Look For When Touring an Assisted Living Facility 

back to top

Assisted Living in Inverness, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer housing and care to seniors who want some help with daily things like taking medicines, preparing meals and keeping up with cleaning. Assisted living facilities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so touring them is the most effective way to determine which one is best for you personally 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 gives independently minded seniors foods and snack foods, help with things like bathing and dressing, and an array of activities such as health and fitness programs, social events, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and secure environment with people their age.

What Are ADLs?

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

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

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’s general health and function. Generally, elderly adults who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are thinking about a move to senior living could be better prospects for independent living. In case 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 even more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was first found in the 1980s to spell it out a unique sort of residential living for old adults that was notably different from more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is designed for people who want some assistance with daily activities but who still would like degree of autonomy and who wish to live in an apartment-like setting like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living facilities offer a complete calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal options to accommodate the different tastes and preferences, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often permitted.

In comparison, the sign of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the requirements of seniors and other people who have medical challenges that require 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally served in a central dining hall and residents reside 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 facilities and long-term care communities. Due to the fact that they provide more services, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer 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 form of Alzheimer's, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the beginning levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best supported by assisted living communities while people living with later stages of dementia need the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is usually unique, here are a few characteristics which most assisted living facilities share:

  • They offer assorted degrees of care, sometimes at different prices.
  • They provide assorted living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow residents to bring their own pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller dogs.
  • They cater to different backgrounds, traditions and interests. Some facilities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining options to match. Still more are made for retired armed service or college or university alumni and are even located on or near college campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for married couples along with individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some facilities have as few as 20 residents, while some many have significantly more than 200.
