Assisted Living in Jensen Beach, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer lodging and care to seniors who need some support with day-by-day tasks like taking medications, making meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living communities come in all shapes and sizes, so visiting them may be the best 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 similar to another. At a minimum, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snacks, assist with things like bathing and getting dressed, and an array of activities such as for example health and fitness programs, social occasions, outings and much more, all in a safe and sound environment with people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

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

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

Established in the 1950s, ADLs assess an individual’s overall health and function. In general, older adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are considering a switch to senior living could be better candidates for independent living. When you have questions in what care type is the best suit for your loved one, email A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any questions you may have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan communities and even 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 notably different from more regular nursing home designs. Assisted living is made for individuals who want a certain amount of assistance with daily activities but who still expect degree of independence and who wish to live in an apartment-like setting such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities provide a complete schedule of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to provide for varied tastes and needs, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the needs of seniors and others who have health challenges that must have 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a communal dining hall and residents reside in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing communities and long-term care communities. Due to the fact that they offer more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for people dealing with cognitive decline. In fact, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are living with some type of dementia, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the earlier levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best supported by assisted living facilities while people living with later levels of Alzheimer's require the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every facility is certainly distinct, below are a few characteristics that a majority of assisted living communities share:

  • They offer different degrees of care and attention, sometimes at different prices.
  • They offer different living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many permit residents to bring their private small pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller dogs.
  • They cater to differing backgrounds, traditions and hobbies. Some facilities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining choices to match. Still more are created for retired armed service or college or university alumni and may be even situated on or near college or university campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for partners as well as individuals.
  • They range in size. Some facilities have only 20 residents, while some many have more than 200.

With so many options to choose from, finding the right place can feel overwhelming. Our Senior Living Advisors will help. They live in the areas they work in. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, she or he will ask a few questions to better determine what you are interested in, what your budget is and what special needs your family member may have. Best of all their advice is free!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

If you are asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you learn more about senior living. Here are some other hints that assisted living might be ideal for both your family member and your family:

  • You are worried for your loved one’s well-being.
  • You are concerned they aren’t eating properly.
  • You worry about them going out of the house by themselves.
  • You see they are spending less time with family and friends.
  • You receive a telephone call or email from a friend who is worried about them.
  • You observe that your loved one may have problems recalling people’s names or working with a familiar technology like their mobile phone or TV remote.

If these or other symptoms are troubling you, do something. Get in touch with A Place for Mom and talk to a Senior Living Advisor today. They can reply to your questions and help you find out next steps. Best of all, their experience is free!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida supplies families with superb usage of its assisted living inspection and ratings information. Based on our state-by-state review of state records , Florida’s assisted living regulation and inspection program is one of the most transparent in the nation. To find the records of an assisted living facility in the greater Jensen Beach area, go to the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by service type to get inspection reviews, licensure data, fines and activities assessed against the service, option of nursing staff, an emergency power plan overview and more.

The state of Florida mandates that new assisted living residents have a medical examination within 30 days of move-in to identify an personalized care program. The state also mandates a standard number of weekly employee hours depending on the number of people who reside in a facility to ensure care plans can be accommodated.

10 Things to Look For When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

The simplest way to figure out if an assisted living community is ideal for your family member is to see one -- or better yet, four or five of them! Below are a few factors to be aware of when you tour:

  1. Does the staff interact with the residents?
  2. Is the residence clean, odor-free and well looked after?
  3. Is there a procedure in place for evaluating the requirements of a new resident?
  4. Can residents request transportation if they need it?
  5. Are the personnel professional and well-mannered?
  6. Are there specific visiting times or are friends and family welcome at any time?
  7. Does each resident possess a care plan set up?
  8. What happens if a resident’s needs change?
  9. Is there an emergency plan in place in case of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the individuals who live there remind you of your loved one?

How to Pay for Senior Living In Jensen Beach, Florida

How to finance assisted living is one of the most common questions families have when they meet with one of our Senior Living Advisors. Here are a few of the most common financing resources for senior living:

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have a sufficient amount of funds saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for family members to pool funds to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Many times, seniors sell their places of residence to pay for senior living. In some instances, a bridge loan may be available to help cover the price of moving while the home is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is made to cover senior care expenses. Some policies may cover various other expenses which can be incurred through the transition to assisted living, such as for example hiring a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the armed service and may qualify for help and support. Because benefits are unused, it’s worth it to check to discover if your loved one or his / her partner might meet the requirements. For more information, go to va.gov or see our Guideline 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 based on the type of policy you hold. Consult a life insurance or financial counselor to learn about whether this option might work for your situation.

Many families assume that Medicare will assist pay for assisted living, but it can only cover short-term care. To learn more, head to Medicare's site.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary broadly from facility to community, so that it makes sense to do your research. Here are a few points that may impact how much you spend:

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

Assisted living facilities often charge a flat fee that addresses many basic services, with extra costs added on for particular services. Various other facilities will charge a fee for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents only pay for the services they use. In most cases, the monthly base cost covers only lease and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance costs and deposits are also often required. Fees and rates vary by facility, so it’s important to question communities you are visiting about their costs and products and services.

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