Assisted Living in Miami Gardens, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer lodging and care to seniors who want some assistance with daily things like taking medicines, making meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living facilities can be found in all shapes and sizes, so visiting them may be the best way to figure out which one is best for you or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No assisted living facility is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors foods and snacks, assist with things like showering and dressing, and an array of activities such as for example health and wellness programs, cultural events, excursions and much more, all in a safe and sound setting among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are exploring 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
  • Dressing
  • Feeding (but not meal preparation)
  • Continence
  • Functional mobility, which include getting in and out of a bed or seat

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’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 could be better candidates for independent living. In case you have questions about what care type is the best fit for your family member, get in touch with A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries you might have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan communities and even more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was first found in the 1980s to spell it out a new sort of residential living for old adults that was obviously not the same as more regular nursing home designs. Assisted living is made for individuals who want some help with day to day activities but who still would like degree of autonomy and who would like to live in an apartment-like environment like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities offer a full schedule of activities and events and provide multiple meal options to focus on diverse tastes and needs, including special eating plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In comparison, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the requirements of seniors and others who have medical challenges that necessitate 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally served in a central dining area and residents reside in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also include short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care communities. Due to the fact that they offer more services, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for people dealing with cognitive impairment. In fact, 40% of the people who live in the state of Florida are living with some type of dementia, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the earlier stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best supported by assisted living communities while people living with later levels of Alzheimer's require the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Whilst every community is definitely distinct, here are some characteristics that a lot of assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide different degrees of care, occasionally at different costs.
  • They offer different living options, from studios to one-bedroom flats.
  • Many allow people to bring their private small pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller dogs.
  • They cater to different backgrounds, traditions and interests. Some facilities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining options to complement. Still more are made for retired military or university alumni and might be even situated on or near college campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for married couples along with individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some facilities have only 20 residents, while others many have significantly 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 communities they serve.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Miami Gardens, Florida

How to finance assisted living is among 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 families to combine funds to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Many times, seniors sell their house to pay for senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan may be available to help cover the price of moving while the home is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This unique kind of insurance is designed to cover senior care expenditures. Some policies could cover additional expenses which can be incurred while in the transition to assisted living, such as hiring a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and may be eligible for support. Because many benefits are untouched, it’s worthwhile to check to discover if your loved one or his or her spouse may meet the criteria. To learn more, head to va.gov or see our Guide to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for additional information.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are many ways to use life insurance to finance senior living determined by the type of policy you have. Consult a life insurance or financial counselor to understand about if this option might work for your circumstances.

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

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

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

  • Type of residence
  • Size of house (studio, one- or two-bedroom house)
  • Types of services needed
  • Geographical location
  • Located area of the facility
  • Level of opulence

Assisted living facilities frequently charge a flat fee that addresses many basic solutions, with extra fees added on for special services. Other facilities will charge a service charge for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents pay just 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 frequently expected. Charges and rates can vary by facility, so it’s important to question communities you are investigating about their costs and services.
