Assisted Living in North Palm Beach, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer lodging and care to seniors who need some help with day-by-day things like taking medications, making meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living communities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so touring 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 assisted living community is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like washing and getting dressed, and a wide variety of activities such as for example wellness programs, cultural events, excursions and much more, all in a safe and secure setting with people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

If you are considering assisted living, you’ve most likely run into the acronym ADLs, which means the Activities of Daily Living. These include:

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

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs assess a person's general health and function. Generally, elderly adults who can manage ADLs by themselves but who are considering a switch to senior living could be better candidates for independent living. When you have questions about what care type may be the best suit for your family member, get in touch with 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 initially used in the 1980s to describe a innovative sort of residential living for old adults that was notably not the same as more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is designed for people who want a certain amount of help with daily activities but who still want level of autonomy and who want to live in an apartment-like setting such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities provide a complete schedule of activities and events and offer multiple meal options to provide for different tastes and preferences, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In contrast, the hallmark 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 generally served in a central dining area and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also offer short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care communities. Due to the fact that they provide more help and support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may offer memory care, which is specialized support for individuals managing cognitive decline. In fact, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are living with some type of dementia, based on the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the earlier stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are greatest served by assisted living communities while people living with later stages of dementia require the health care of a nursing home.

  • They cater to differing backgrounds, customs and hobbies and interests. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining options to match.

How to Pay for Senior Living In North Palm Beach, Florida

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

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have a sufficient amount of funds saved to cover long-term care, it’s common for families to combine funds to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their house to pay for senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan could be available to help cover the price of moving while the house is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This unique kind of insurance is made to pay for senior care expenses. Some policies may cover other expenditures which can be incurred while in the transition to assisted living, such as for example employing a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and may be eligible for support. Because benefits are untouched, it’s worth it to check to see if your family member or his / her partner might meet the requirements. For more information, head 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 many ways to use life insurance to finance senior living depending on the type of policy you hold. Consult with a life insurance or economic counselor to learn about if this option might work for your needs.

Many family members believe that Medicare will purchase assisted living, but it really 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 facility, so it makes sense to do your research. Below are a few points that can impact just how much you spend:

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

Assisted living facilities frequently charge a set fee that addresses many basic services, with extra fees added on for special services. Other communities will charge a rate for each individual service, referred to as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents only pay for the solutions they use. In most cases, the monthly base cost consists of only lease and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often expected. Fees and prices differ by facility, so it’s necessary to ask facilities you are investigating about their costs and services.

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