Assisted Living in Lake Park, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and care to seniors who want some support with day-by-day things like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with cleaning. Assisted living facilities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the most effective way to figure out which one is best for you personally or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No-one assisted living community is like another. At a minimum, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like washing and dressing, and an array of activities such as wellness programs, social events, excursions and much more, all in a safe and secure environment among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you considering 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
  • Getting dressed
  • Feeding (however, not meal preparation)
  • Continence
  • Functional mobility, which include getting back in and out of a bed or chair

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate a person's general health and function. Generally, older adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are thinking about a switch to senior living may be better candidates for independent living. In case you have questions about what care type may be the best suit for your family member, 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 facilities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The term “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 regular nursing home designs. Assisted living is made for individuals who want some help with day to day activities but who still want degree of autonomy and who wish to reside in an apartment-like situation like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities provide a complete calendar of activities and events and provide multiple meal choices to focus on diverse tastes and preferences, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be allowed.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the requirements of seniors and other people who have health conditions that necessitate 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a communal dining area and residents live 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 facilities and long-term care facilities. 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 specific support for people dealing with cognitive impairment. In fact, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are currently living with some type of dementia, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the initial stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best supported by assisted living facilities while people living with later stages of Alzheimer's need the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Whilst every facility is usually distinct, below are a few characteristics that a majority of assisted living facilities share:

  • They offer distinct levels of care and attention, sometimes at different prices.
  • They offer assorted living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many permit residents to bring their personal household pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, traditions and hobbies. Some facilities, for instance, are faith-based, while others are multilingual, with activities and dining options to complement. Still more are made for retired military or college alumni and may be even located on or near college or university campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for partners along with individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some facilities have as few as 20 residents, while others many have more than 200.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary widely from community to community, so it pays off to do your research. Here are some points that can influence how much you spend:

  • Type of residence
  • Size of house (studio, one- or two-bedroom apartment)
  • Types of services needed
  • Geographical area
  • Location of the community
  • Level of opulence

Assisted living communities often charge a set fee that covers many basic services, with additional costs added on for particular services. Additional communities will charge a service charge for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, so that residents only pay for the solutions they use. Typically, the monthly base cost consists of only lease and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance costs and deposits are also frequently required. Charges and rates can vary by facility, so it’s beneficial to question facilities you are checking out about their costs and products and services.
