Assisted Living in Madison, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer lodging and care to seniors who need some help with daily tasks like taking medicines, preparing meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living facilities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so touring them may be the best way to determine which one is most beneficial for you personally or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No assisted living community is like another. At a minimum, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like showering and dressing, and an array of activities such as health and fitness programs, social occasions, excursions and much more, all in a safe and secure environment with people their age.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you researching assisted living, you’ve very likely run into the acronym ADLs, which means 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 seat

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’s general health and function. Generally, elderly adults who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are thinking about a move to senior living may be better prospects for independent living. Should you 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 may have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan facilities and even more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The term “assisted living” was first used in the 1980s to describe a unique kind of residential living for older adults that was significantly not the same as more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is created for people who need a certain amount of assistance with daily activities but who still desire level of independence and who wish to reside in an apartment-like environment such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living facilities provide a full calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to focus on different tastes and preferences, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be allowed.

In comparison, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the needs of seniors and others who have health challenges that necessitate 24x7 medical attention. Meals are usually served in a central dining area and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also offer short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care facilities. Since they provide more services, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer memory care, which is specific support for people managing cognitive decline. Actually, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are currently living with some form of Alzheimer's, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the earlier levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best supported by assisted living communities while people living with later stages of Alzheimer's require the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every facility is normally different, here are a few characteristics which most assisted living communities share:

  • They offer distinct degrees of care, sometimes at varied costs.
  • They provide assorted living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow residents to bring their own small pets, including birds, cats and in some cases little dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, customs and interests. Some facilities, for instance, are faith-based, while others are multi-lingual, with activities and dining choices to complement. Still more are made for retired military or college or university alumni and may be even located on or near university or college campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for married couples as well as individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some facilities have only 20 residents, while others many have more than 200.

With so many options to choose from, choosing the best community can seem overwhelming. Our Senior Living Advisors can assist. They reside in the areas they serve. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, she or he will ask a few pre-determined questions to better determine what you are interested in, what your budget will be and what particular desires your family member may have. On top of that their advice is free of charge!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

If you're asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you find out more about senior living. Here are a few other signs that assisted living may be right for both your loved one and your family:

  • You are worried for your loved one’s well-being.
  • You are worried they aren’t eating correctly.
  • You worry about them leaving the home all alone.
  • You notice they are spending less time with friends and family.
  • You receive a telephone call or email from a neighbor who is worried about them.
  • You observe that your family member may have trouble remembering people’s names or using a well-known technology like their mobile phone or TV remote control.

If these or various other symptoms are troubling you, take action. Contact A Place for Mom and speak to a Senior Living Advisor today. They can reply to your questions and help you figure out next steps. On top of that, their experience is free of charge!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida provides families with excellent usage of its assisted living inspection and ratings information. Based on our state-by-state review of state records , Florida’s assisted living regulation and inspection system is among the most transparent in the country. To find the information of an assisted living facility in the wider Madison area, visit the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by community type to obtain inspection reports, licensure data, fines and activities assessed against the facility, option of nursing staff, an emergency power plan summary and more.

The state of Florida requires that new assisted living residents have a medical examination within 4 weeks of move-in to evaluate an individualized care plan. The state also requires a standard number of weekly staff member hours determined by the number of individuals who live in a community to ensure care plans will be accommodated.

10 Things to Look For When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

The best way to figure out if an assisted living community is ideal for your loved one is to see one -- or better yet, four or five of them! Here are a few points to take note of when you visit:

  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 new resident?
  4. Can residents arrange for transportation if they need it?
  5. Are the staff professional and well-mannered?
  6. Are there specific visiting times or are family and friends welcome anytime?
  7. Will each resident possess a care plan set up?
  8. What happens if a resident’s needs change?
  9. Is there an emergency program in place in case of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the individuals who live there remind you of your loved one?

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

How to Pay for Senior Living In Madison, Florida

How to pay for assisted living is among the most typical questions families have when they meet with one of our Senior Living Advisors. Here are a few of the most common financing resources for senior living:

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior does not have ample funds saved to cover long-term care, it’s common for family members to combine money to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their places of residence to pay for senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan may be available to help cover the price of moving while the house is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is designed to pay for senior care expenditures. Some policies could cover additional 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 armed service and may be eligible for help and support. Because many benefits are untouched, it’s worth it to check to discover if your loved one or his or her partner might qualify. For more information, head to va.gov or see our Instruction to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are many methods to use life insurance to invest in senior living determined by the type of policy you hold. Consult with a life insurance or financial advisor to learn about whether this program might work for your situation.

Many households believe that Medicare will purchase assisted living, but it really can only cover short-term care. To learn more, head to Medicare's website.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary broadly from facility to facility, so that it pays off to do your research. Here are a few points that can influence how much you spend:

  • Type 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 frequently charge a flat rate that addresses many basic services, with extra fees added on for special services. Additional facilities will charge a rate for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, so that residents only pay for the assistance they use. In general, the monthly base fee consists of only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance costs and deposits are also often required. Fees and prices differ by facility, so it’s beneficial to ask communities you are checking out about their costs and services.

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