Assisted Living in Kissimmee, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and care to seniors who want some assistance with daily tasks like taking medications, providing meals and other personal care requirements. Assisted living facilities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the ideal way to figure out which one is most beneficial for you or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

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

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

Introduced in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an person's general health and function. Generally, elderly individuals who can take care of ADLs on their own but who are thinking about a move to senior living may be better candidates for independent living.

For those who have inquiries about what care type may be the best fit for your loved one, contact A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries 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 utilized in the 1980s to explain a new kind of residential living for older individuals that was remarkably unlike more common nursing home models. Assisted living is created for individuals who want some help with some daily activities but who still desire a particular degree of self-sufficiency and who would like to reside in an apartment-like set up like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities offer a extensive calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to accommodate different tastes and needs, including restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be allowed.

In contrast, the hallmark 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 conditions that require 24x7 medical attention. Food are generally served in a central eating hall and residents reside in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also present short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing services and long-term care communities. Because they offer more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer memory care, which is specific support for people 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 type of Alzheimer's, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the earlier levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best served by assisted living facilities while people living with later stages of dementia or Alzheimer's need the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is different, below are a few features that a lot of assisted living facilities share:

  • They offer different degrees of care, occasionally at varied price points.
  • They provide different living options, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow residents to bring their own pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller dogs.
  • They cater to different backgrounds, traditions and hobbies. Some communities, for example, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining choices to complement. Some are made for retired military veterans or college alumni and so are located on or near bases and campuses.
  • They may offer facilities for partners along with individuals.
  • They range in size. Some facilities have as few as 20 occupants, while others many have more than 200.

With so many options to choose from, finding the right place can seem mind-boggling. Our Senior Living Advisors can help. They live in the states and cities they serve. When you talk with a Senior Living Advisor, she or he will ask a few questions to better understand what you are looking for, what your budget can be and what special needs your loved one may have. On top of that their help and advice is free!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

When you are asking this question, chances are that it’s time you find out more about senior living. Here are some other indications that assisted living could be right for both your family member and you.

  • You are concerned for your loved one’s basic safety.
  • You are worried they aren’t eating properly.
  • You get worried about them going out of the home alone.
  • You see they are spending much less time with family and friends.
  • You get a phone call or note from a neighbor who's concerned about them.

How to Finance Senior Living In Kissimmee, FL

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

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have a sufficient amount of money saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for households to pool funds to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their home to pay for senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan could be available to help cover the expense of moving while the home is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is designed to pay for senior care expenses. Some plans may cover other expenses that can be incurred through the move to assisted living, such as hiring a case manager or treatment advisor.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and could qualify for support. Because many benefits proceed unused, so it’s worthwhile to check to check out if your family member or his or her partner might qualify. To find out more, head to va.gov or download our Guide to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for additional information.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are several ways to use life insurance to fund senior living depending on the kind of policy you hold. Consult a life insurance or financial advisor to understand about whether this program might work for your situation.

Many family members assume that Medicare will help pay for assisted living, however it only covers short-term care. To find out more, go to medicare.gov.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary broadly from facility to facility, so it pays to carry out your research. Here are a few factors that may impact how much you pay:

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

Assisted living facilities often charge a flat amount that covers many basic solutions, with supplemental charges added for special services. Additional communities will charge a charge for each service, known as a la carte payment, so that residents only pay for the services they make use of. As a rule, the monthly base rate covers only lease and meals, with care charged separately. Entrance charges and deposits are also often required. Fees and prices vary by facility, so it’s necessary to talk to facilities you are visiting about their costs and options.

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