Assisted Living in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer lodging and services to seniors who need some help with daily things like taking medications, preparing meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living facilities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is 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 facility is similar to another. At a minimum, assisted living gives independently minded seniors foods and snacks, assist with things such as washing and dressing, and an array of activities such as for example health and fitness programs, cultural events, outings plus much more, all in a safe and sound environment among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are considering assisted living, you’ve probably come across the acronym ADLs, which means the Activities of Daily Living. These consist of:

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

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate a person's overall health and function. Generally, older adults who can take care of ADLs on their own but who are considering a switch to senior living may be better prospects for independent living. For those who have questions about what care type may be the best suit for your loved one, 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 term “assisted living” was first used in the 1980s to spell it out a new sort of residential living for old adults that was obviously different from more traditional nursing home designs. Assisted living is designed for individuals who need a certain amount of assistance with daily activities but who still would like level of independence and who would like to reside in an apartment-like situation such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living facilities provide a full schedule of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to cater to many different tastes and preferences, including special diet plans and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be allowed.

In comparison, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the requirements of seniors and other people who have health conditions that need to have 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a central dining area 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 communities and long-term care communities. Because they provide more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer memory care, which is specific support for people dealing with cognitive impairment. In fact, 40% of the individuals who live in the state of Florida are currently living with some type of Alzheimer's, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. Generally, people living with the initial stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best served by assisted living facilities while people living with later levels of Alzheimer's need the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Whilst every community is definitely distinct, here are a few features that many assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide distinct levels of care, occasionally at different costs.
  • They offer assorted living choices, from studios to one-bedroom flats.
  • Many allow residents to bring their private small pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller sized dogs.
  • They cater to different backgrounds, traditions and interests. Some facilities, for instance, are faith-based, while others are multilingual, with activities and dining options to match. Still more are designed for retired armed service or college alumni and sometimes are even located on or near college or university campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for spouses as well as individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some facilities have as few as 20 residents, while others many have significantly more than 200.

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

How to pay for assisted living is among the most common questions families have if they meet with one of our Senior Living Advisors. Here are some of the most typical financing sources for senior living:

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior does not have enough funds saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for households to pool funds to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their homes to fund senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan may be available to help cover the cost of moving while the home is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is made to cover senior care expenditures. Some policies might cover additional expenditures that can be incurred through the transition to assisted living, such as hiring a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the armed service and may be eligible for support. Because benefits are untouched, it’s worthwhile to check to see if your family member or his or her spouse might qualify. To learn more, head 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 several methods to use life insurance to invest in senior living based on the kind of policy you hold. Consult with a life insurance or financial counselor to understand about if this program might work for your situation.

Many families assume that Medicare can help purchase assisted living, but it can only cover short-term care. To learn more, head to Medicare's site.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary broadly from facility to community, so it pays off to do your research. Here are some points that may influence just how much you spend:

  • Type of residence
  • Size of house (studio, one- or two-bedroom apartment)
  • Types of services needed
  • Geographical location
  • Location of the facility
  • Level of extravagance

Assisted living communities often charge a set rate that covers many basic solutions, with additional costs added on for special services. Other communities will charge a fee for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, so that residents only pay for the assistance they use. In general, the monthly base cost consists of only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often expected. Fees and rates vary by facility, so it’s beneficial to talk to communities you are investigating about their costs and services.

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