Assisted Living in Largo, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer lodging and services to seniors who want some assistance with day-by-day tasks like taking medications, making meals and keeping up with cleaning. Assisted living facilities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them may be the best way to figure out which one is most beneficial for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living community is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, assist with things such as bathing and getting dressed, and a wide variety of activities such as health and fitness programs, cultural events, outings and much more, all in a safe and secure environment among people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you considering assisted living, you’ve very likely run into the acronym ADLs, which means the Activities of Daily Living. These consist of:

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

Established in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’s overall 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. When you have questions in what care type may be the best suit for your loved one, get in touch with 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 more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The term “assisted living” was initially found in the 1980s to spell it out a innovative sort of residential living for old adults that was obviously different from more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is created for individuals who need some assistance with day to day activities but who still want degree of autonomy and who want to reside in an apartment-like environment like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living communities offer a complete calendar of activities and events and provide multiple meal choices to cater to varied tastes and preferences, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often permitted.

In comparison, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the requirements of seniors and other people who have health challenges that require 24x7 medical attention. Meals are usually served in a communal dining area and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also offer short-term rehabilitative care.
