Assisted Living in New Port Richey, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer housing and care to seniors who need some assistance with day-by-day things like taking medicines, making meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living facilities can be found in all shapes and sizes, so touring them may be the best way to determine which one is best for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living facility is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors foods and snacks, assist with things such as washing and getting dressed, and a wide selection of activities such as wellness programs, social events, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and secure environment among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are considering assisted living, you’ve most likely come across the acronym ADLs, which means the Activities of Daily Living. These consist of:

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

Established in the 1950s, ADLs assess an individual’s overall health and function. In general, elderly adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are considering a switch to senior living could be better prospects for independent living. Should you have questions about what care type may be the best fit for your family member, get in touch with 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 word “assisted living” was first found in the 1980s to spell it out a unique sort of residential living for older adults that was significantly not the same as more typical nursing home designs. Assisted living is made for people who want a certain amount of support with day to day activities but who still would like level of independence and who want to reside in an apartment-like situation like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities offer a full calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to cater to varied tastes and preferences, including special eating plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In comparison, the sign of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the requirements of seniors and others who have health challenges that require 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a central dining area and residents reside in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also include short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care facilities. Because they offer more support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living communities.

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

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Whilst every community is definitely unique, here are some attributes that a majority of assisted living communities share:

  • They provide different degrees of care, sometimes at varied prices.
  • They provide assorted living options, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow people to bring their own small pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, cultures and interests. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multi-lingual, with activities and dining choices to match. Still more are designed for retired armed service or college or university alumni and might be even situated on or near university or college campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for couples along with individuals.
  • They range in size. Some communities have only 20 residents, while some many have more than 200.

How to Pay for Senior Living In New Port Richey, Florida

How to pay for assisted living is among the most common questions families have when they meet with one of our Senior Living Advisors. Here are a few of the most typical funding sources 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 households to pool money to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Many times, seniors sell their homes to fund senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan could 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 made to pay for senior care expenses. Some policies may cover various other expenses 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 military and may be eligible for help and support. Because many benefits are unused, it’s worth it to check to see if your family member or his or her spouse may meet the requirements. To find out more, go to va.gov or see our Guideline to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are several methods to use life insurance to invest in senior living depending on the kind of policy you have. Consult with a life insurance or financial consultant to learn about whether this program might work for your circumstances.

Many families expect that Medicare will help pay for assisted living, however it can only cover short-term care. To learn more, go to Medicare's website.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary widely from facility to facility, so it makes sense to do your research. Here are some items that can have an impact on just how much you spend:

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

Assisted living communities frequently charge a flat fee that addresses many basic services, with extra fees added on for particular services. Additional facilities will charge a service charge for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents only pay for the services they make use of. In general, the monthly base rate includes only lease and meals, with care charged separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often expected. Fees and rates differ by facility, so it’s necessary to ask facilities you are checking out about their costs and products and services.
