Assisted Living in Lakeland, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer housing and services to seniors who need some support with day-by-day things like taking medications, making meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living communities can be found in all shapes and sizes, so touring them may be the most effective way to figure out which one is best for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living community is like another. At a minimum, assisted living provides independently minded seniors foods and snacks, assist with things such as bathing and dressing, and a wide range of activities such as health and wellness programs, social occasions, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and sound setting among people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you considering assisted living, you’ve most likely come across the acronym ADLs, which stands for the Activities of Daily Living. These include:

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

Established in the 1950s, ADLs assess an individual’s overall health and function. Generally, elderly adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are considering a switch to senior living could be better prospects for independent living. Should you have questions in what care type is the best suit for your loved one, get in touch with 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 initially found in the 1980s to describe a new sort of residential living for older adults that was notably different from more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is designed for individuals who want some assistance with day to day activities but who still desire degree of autonomy and who want to reside in an apartment-like situation like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities provide a complete schedule of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to provide for diverse tastes and preferences, including special eating 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 needs of seniors and other people who have medical conditions that need to have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally served in a communal dining area and residents reside in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also include short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also known as 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 communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer memory care, which is specific support for people managing cognitive decline. Actually, 40% of the people who live in the state of Florida are living with some kind of Alzheimer's, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the initial stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are effectively served by assisted living facilities while people living with later stages of dementia require the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Whilst every community is different, below are a few attributes that almost all assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide different degrees of care and attention, sometimes at varied prices.
  • They offer different living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow people to bring their own pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, cultures and hobbies. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multi-lingual, with activities and dining choices to match. Still more are made for retired armed service or college or university alumni and sometimes are even situated on or near university or college campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for married couples along with individuals.
  • They range in size. Some facilities have only 20 residents, while some many have more than 200.

With so many choices to choose from, finding the right place can seem overwhelming. Our Senior Living Advisors can help. They reside in the communities they serve. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, he or she will ask a few questions to better determine what you are looking for, what your budget will be and what special needs your family member may have. Best of all their guidance is cost-free!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

In the event you are asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you find out more about senior living. Here are a few other hints that assisted living might be ideal for both your loved one and your family:

  • You are concerned for your loved one’s safety.
  • You are concerned they aren’t eating properly.
  • You worry about them going out of the home alone.
  • You see they are spending much less time with family and friends.
  • You get a telephone call or email from a next door neighbor who's worried about them.
  • You observe that your loved one may have difficulty remembering people’s names or working with a familiar technology like their cellular phone or TV remote control.

If these or additional indicators are worrying you, take action. Get in touch with A Place for Mom and speak to a Senior Living Advisor today. They can answer your questions and assist you to figure out next steps. Best of all, their resources is free!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida provides families with excellent access to its assisted living inspection and ratings records. Based on our state-by-state review of state records , Florida’s assisted living regulation and inspection system is one of the most transparent in the nation. To find the information of an assisted living facility in the greater Lakeland area, visit the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by facility type to obtain inspection reviews, licensure data, penalties and actions assessed against the service, option of nursing staff, an emergency power plan summary and more.

The state of Florida mandates that new assisted living residents have a medical examination within 4 weeks of move-in to identify an individualized care strategy. The state also mandates a minimum number of weekly staff member hours based on the number of people who reside in a facility to make sure care plans will 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 loved one is to go to one -- or better yet, four or five of them! Here are a few factors to be aware of when you tour:

  1. Does the personnel interact with the residents?
  2. Is the community clean, odor-free and well taken care of?
  3. Is there a process set up for evaluating the needs of a brand new resident?
  4. Can residents request transport if they require it?
  5. Are the staff professional and well-mannered?
  6. Are there particular visiting periods or are family and friends welcome at any time?
  7. Does each resident have a care plan in place?
  8. What happens if a resident’s needs change?
  9. Is there an emergency plan in place in the event of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the individuals who live there remind you of your loved one?

For more tips about what to look for while touring an assisted living community, see our Planning and Advice pages.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Lakeland, Florida

How to pay for assisted living is one of the most common questions families have if they meet with one of our Senior Living Advisors. Here are a few of the most typical funding options 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 households to pool money to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their places of residence to fund senior living. In some instances, a bridge loan may be offered to help cover the price of moving while the home is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is designed to pay for senior care expenditures. Some policies might cover other expenditures which can be incurred during 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 unused, it’s worthwhile to check to discover if your family member or their spouse might qualify. To learn more, head to va.gov or see our Information to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are many ways to use life insurance to invest in senior living depending on the kind of policy you have. Consult with a life insurance or financial consultant to learn about if this program might work for your circumstances.

Many family members believe that Medicare will pay for assisted living, but it really can only cover short-term care. To learn more, go to Medicare's site.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary widely from community to community, so that it pays off to perform your research. Below are a few factors that can have an effect on just how much you pay:

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

Assisted living communities often charge a set fee that addresses many basic solutions, with additional charges added on for special services. Additional communities will charge a rate for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents only pay for the services they make use of. In general, the monthly base fee consists of only rent and meals, with care charged separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often expected. Fees and rates vary by facility, so it’s beneficial to talk to facilities you are checking out about their costs and services.

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