Assisted Living in Oviedo, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and services to seniors who want some assistance with daily tasks like taking medicines, preparing meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living facilities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the most effective way to determine which one is most beneficial for you personally or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living facility is like another. At a minimum, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like showering and getting dressed, and an array of activities such as wellness programs, cultural events, outings plus much more, all in a safe and secure environment with people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are exploring assisted living, you’ve very likely run into the acronym ADLs, which stands for 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

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs assess 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 could be better prospects for independent living. When you have questions in 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 may have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan communities and even more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was initially used in the 1980s to spell it out a unique sort of residential living for old adults that was notably not the same as more traditional nursing home models. Assisted living is created for people who want some help with daily activities but who still would like degree of autonomy and who want to live in an apartment-like situation like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities provide a complete calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to focus on different tastes and needs, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In comparison, the sign of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the needs of seniors and other people who have health conditions that must have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally served in a communal dining area and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also known as convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing communities and long-term care facilities. Due to the fact that they offer more support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer memory care, which is specific support for individuals coping with cognitive decline.

  • Geographical area
  • Location of the community
  • Level of luxuriousness
