Assisted Living in Miami Lakes, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

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

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living facility is like another. At the very least, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things such as bathing and dressing, and an array of activities such as health and fitness programs, social events, outings and much more, all in a safe and sound environment 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 consist of:

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

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's overall health and function. Generally, elderly adults who can take care of ADLs on their own but who are thinking about a move to senior living may be better prospects for independent living. When you have questions in 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 more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was initially used in the 1980s to describe a innovative sort of residential living for old adults that was significantly not the same as more regular nursing home models. Assisted living is made for people who need a certain amount of help with daily activities but who still desire degree of independence and who want to live in an apartment-like setting like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities offer a full calendar of activities and events and provide multiple meal choices to cater to diverse tastes and needs, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often permitted.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the needs of seniors and other people who have health conditions that require 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a central dining room and residents live in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also offer short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care facilities. Since they provide more help and support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may provide memory care, which is specific support for people managing cognitive decline. Actually, 40% of the individuals who live in the state of Florida are living with some kind of dementia, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best served by assisted living communities while people living with later stages of Alzheimer's need the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Whilst every facility can be distinct, here are a few features that almost all assisted living facilities share:

  • They offer assorted degrees of care, occasionally at different costs.
  • They offer assorted living options, from studios to one-bedroom flats.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Miami Lakes, Florida

How to finance assisted living is one of the most typical 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 enough funds saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for family members to combine money to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their places of residence to pay for senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan may be offered to help cover the expense of moving while the house is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is designed to pay for senior care expenditures. Some policies might cover additional expenditures that can be incurred through 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 benefits are unused, it’s worthwhile to check to see if your loved one or his or her partner may meet the requirements.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary broadly from facility to facility, so it pays to do your research. Below are a few items that can have an effect on just how much you spend:

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

Assisted living communities often charge a set fee that covers many basic solutions, with additional costs added on for special services. Additional facilities will charge a rate for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, so that residents pay just for the solutions they use. Typically, the monthly base fee covers only rent and meals, with care charged separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often expected. Charges and prices can vary by facility, therefore it’s beneficial to ask communities you are visiting about their costs and services.

For more information regarding assisted living costs and charge structures, contact a Senior Living Advisor at A Place for Mom.
