|| When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

Assisted Living in Land O Lakes, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide lodging and care to seniors who need some assistance with day-by-day tasks like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living facilities come 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 family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living community is like another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, help with things like bathing and dressing, and an array of activities such as for example health and fitness programs, social occasions, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and secure setting among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are considering assisted living, you’ve probably run into the acronym ADLs, which stands for the Activities of Daily Living. These consist of:

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

Established in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's general health and function. In general, older adults who can take care of ADLs by themselves but who are thinking about a switch to senior living may be better candidates for independent living. For those who have questions in what care type is the best suit for your loved one, call 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 used in the 1980s to describe a new 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 some assistance with day to day activities but who still desire level of independence and who wish to live in an apartment-like environment such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living facilities offer a complete schedule of activities and events and provide multiple meal choices to focus on many different tastes and preferences, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In comparison, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the requirements of seniors and others who have health conditions that need to have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a communal dining area and residents reside in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care communities. Because they provide more help and 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 coping with cognitive impairment. In fact, 40% of the individuals who live in the state of Florida are currently living with some form of dementia, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the initial levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are effectively supported by assisted living communities while people living with later levels of Alzheimer's require the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Whilst every facility is usually unique, here are a few features that a majority of assisted living facilities share:

  • They offer assorted levels of care, sometimes at different prices.
  • They offer different living options, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many permit residents to bring their private pets, including birds, cats and in some cases little dogs.
  • They cater to different backgrounds, cultures and interests. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining options to complement. Still more are created for retired armed service or college alumni and sometimes are even located on or near college campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for married couples along with individuals.
  • They range in size. Some communities have as few as 20 residents, while others many have significantly more than 200.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary broadly from community to facility, so that it makes sense to perform your research. Here are some items that can impact how much you spend:

  • Kind of residence
  • Size of apartment (studio, one- or two-bedroom house)
  • Types of solutions needed
  • Geographical area
  • Located area of the facility
  • Level of extravagance

Assisted living facilities often charge a flat rate that addresses many basic services, with additional charges added on for particular services. Additional facilities will charge a service charge for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, so that residents pay just for the support they use. In most cases, the monthly base fee includes only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance costs and deposits are also often expected. Fees and rates vary by facility, therefore it’s necessary to talk to communities you are visiting about their costs and services.
