Assisted Living in Niceville, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer housing and care to seniors who need some support with daily tasks like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living communities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them may be the most effective way to determine which one is best for you personally 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, help with things like showering and dressing, and an array of activities such as health and fitness programs, social events, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and sound setting with people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

If you are researching assisted living, you’ve probably come across the acronym ADLs, which stands for the Activities of Daily Living. These include:

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

Established in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's general health and function. Generally, older adults who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are thinking about a switch to senior living may be better prospects for independent living. In case you have questions about what care type is the best match for your family member, email 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 word “assisted living” was first used in the 1980s to describe a new sort of residential living for old adults that was significantly different from more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is designed for individuals who need some help with daily activities but who still want degree of autonomy and who would like to live in an apartment-like environment like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living facilities provide a complete calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to accommodate the varied tastes and preferences, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer 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 generally served in a central dining room and residents reside 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 communities. Due to the fact that they provide more support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for people dealing with cognitive impairment. Actually, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are living with some kind of dementia, according to 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 facilities while people living with later levels of Alzheimer's require the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every facility is normally unique, here are some features that almost all assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide distinct degrees of care, occasionally at varied costs.
  • They offer different living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many permit people to bring their private small pets, including birds, cats and in some cases little dogs.
  • They cater to differing backgrounds, traditions and hobbies and interests. Some communities, for example, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining choices to complement. Still more are created for retired armed service or university alumni and are even located on or near college or university campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for married couples along with individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some communities have as few as 20 residents, while others many have significantly more than 200.

With so many choices to choose from, finding the right place can feel mind-boggling. Our Senior Living Advisors can help. They live in the communities they serve. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, he or she will ask a few pre-determined questions to better determine what you are interested in, what your budget will be and what special needs your family member may have. On top of that their assistance is cost-free!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

For anyone who is asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you find out more about senior living. Here are some other signs that assisted living might be ideal for both your loved one and your family:

  • You are concerned for your loved one’s well-being.
  • You are concerned they aren’t eating correctly.
  • You get worried about them going out of the house alone.
  • You notice they are spending less time with friends and family.
  • You receive a telephone call or note from a neighbor who's worried about them.
  • You discover that your family member may have problems remembering people’s names or working with a well-known technology like their mobile phone or television remote control.

If these or a variety of other indicators are worrying you, do something. Contact A Place for Mom and talk to a Senior Living Advisor today. They are able to answer your questions and assist you to find out next steps. Best of all, their knowledge is free!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida supplies families with exceptional 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 program is one of the most transparent in the nation. To find the information of an assisted living community in the greater Niceville area, visit the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by facility type to get inspection reports, licensure data, penalties and activities assessed against the facility, option of nursing staff, an emergency power plan summary and more.

The state of Florida mandates that all new assisted living residents have a medical exam within 30 days of move-in to evaluate an personalized care strategy. The state also requires the absolute minimum number of weekly staff member hours depending on the number of people 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 find out if an assisted living facility is right for your family member is to visit one -- or better yet, four or five of them! Here are some factors to observe when you tour:

  1. Does the personnel interact with the residents?
  2. Is the home clean, odor-free and well taken care of?
  3. Is there a process in place for determining the requirements of a brand new resident?
  4. Can residents arrange for transportation if they need it?
  5. Are the staff professional and polite?
  6. Are there particular visiting hours or are guests welcome anytime?
  7. Does each resident possess a care plan set up?
  8. What happens if a resident’s needs change?
  9. Is there a crisis strategy in place in case of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the individuals who live there remind you of your family member?

For more tips about what precisely to search for while touring an assisted living facility, see our Planning and Advice pages.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Niceville, Florida

How to have the funds for assisted living is among the most typical questions families have if they meet with one of our Senior Living Advisors. Here are a few of the most common funding options for senior living:

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior does not have a sufficient amount of funds saved to cover long-term care, it’s common for households to combine funds to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their places of residence to pay for senior living. In some instances, a bridge loan could be offered to help cover the price of moving while the house is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This special kind of insurance is designed to include senior care expenditures. Some policies could cover additional expenditures which can be incurred through the transition to assisted living, such as employing a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the armed service and may be eligible for support. Because many benefits go untouched, it’s worth it to check to discover if your loved one or his or her partner may meet the requirements. To learn more, go 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 invest in senior living based on the type of policy you have. Consult with a life insurance or economic counselor to learn about if this program might work for your needs.

Many households assume that Medicare will help purchase assisted living, however it can only cover short-term care. For more information, go to Medicare's site.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary widely from facility to community, so that it pays to perform your research. Here are some factors that can have an effect on just how much you pay:

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

Assisted living communities often charge a set rate that addresses many basic solutions, with additional charges added on for special services. Other communities will charge a fee for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, so that residents only pay for the solutions they make use of. In most cases, the monthly base cost covers only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance charges and deposits are also often required. Fees and rates can vary by facility, therefore it’s essential to talk to communities you are researching about their costs and services.

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