Assisted Living in North Miami, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and services to seniors who want some help with day-by-day things like taking medicines, preparing meals and keeping up with cleaning. 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 personally or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No-one assisted living community is like another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors foods and snack foods, assist with things like showering and getting dressed, and a wide variety of activities such as wellness programs, cultural events, excursions and much more, all in a safe and sound environment with 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 back in and out of a bed or chair

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’s general health and function. In general, elderly adults who can take care of ADLs on their own but who are considering a move to senior living may be better candidates for independent living. When you have questions in what care type is the best fit for your family member, contact A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries you might 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 describe a new kind of residential living for older adults that was obviously not the same as more regular nursing home designs. Assisted living is designed for individuals who want some help with daily activities but who still expect level of autonomy and who wish to live in an apartment-like situation like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities offer a full calendar of activities and events and provide multiple meal choices to accommodate the diverse tastes and needs, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In comparison, the sign of nursing homes is that they provide 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 usually served in a central dining room and residents reside in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also offer short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care facilities.
