Assisted Living in North Miami Beach, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and care to seniors who want some assistance with daily activities such as taking medications, preparing meals and other personal care requirements. Assisted living facilities can be found in all shapes and sizes, so touring them is the ideal way to figure out which one is most beneficial for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Available in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living facility is like another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors living accommodations, meals, help with things like bathing and dressing as well as a wide selection of activities such as wellness programs, social events, trips plus much more, all in a safe environment among their peers.

What Are ADLs?

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

  • Bathing and showering
  • Toileting
  • Dressing
  • Eating (but not meal preparation)
  • Continence care
  • Functional mobility, including getting in and out of a bed or chair

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an person's overall health and function. In general, older people who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are thinking about a move to senior living may be better applicants for independent living.

In case you have questions in what care type may be the best fit for your family member, contact A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries you may have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan communities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was initially utilized in the 1980s to describe a new sort of residential living for elderly individuals that was remarkably different from more customary nursing home models. Assisted living is created for people who need some assistance with some daily activities but who still would like a specific degree of self-sufficiency and who wish to reside in an apartment-like set up like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities provide a extensive calendar of activities and events and provide a variety of meal options to appeal to different tastes and requirements, including restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be allowed.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are made to meet the requirements of seniors and other people who have medical conditions that require 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a central eating hall and residents live in personal or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also offer short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent treatment centers, nursing centers, experienced nursing facilities and long-term care communities. Because they offer more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may provide memory care, which is unique support for individuals living with cognitive loss. In fact, 40% of the individuals who live in assisted living in the state of Florida are living with some form of Alzheimer's, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the earlier levels of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best served by assisted living facilities while people coping with later stages of dementia or Alzheimer's require the health care of a nursing home.
