Assisted Living in Punta Gorda, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide lodging and services to seniors who need some assistance with daily tasks like taking medicines, making meals and keeping up with housecleaning. Assisted living communities come in all sizes and shapes, so touring them may be the most effective way to figure out which one is best for you or your family member.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No assisted living facility is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, assist with things like bathing and dressing, and a wide selection of activities such as for example health and fitness programs, cultural events, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and secure setting with people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you exploring assisted living, you’ve very likely run into the acronym ADLs, which stands for the Activities of Daily Living. These include:

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

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs assess an individual’s overall health and function. In general, older adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are thinking about a move to senior living could be better candidates for independent living. Should you have questions in what care type is the best match for your loved one, call 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 even more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was first used in the 1980s to spell it out a innovative sort of residential living for old adults that was significantly not the same as more traditional nursing home models. Assisted living is made for individuals who want some assistance with daily activities but who still would like degree 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 offer a complete calendar of activities and events and provide multiple meal choices to provide for varied tastes and needs, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be 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 require 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a central dining area and residents live in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also offer short-term rehabilitative 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. Actually, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are currently living with some kind 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 supported by assisted living communities while people living with later levels of dementia need the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is definitely unique, below are a few attributes that a majority of assisted living facilities share:

  • They offer distinct levels of care, sometimes at different costs.
  • They provide assorted living choices, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many permit residents to bring their own household pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, customs and interests. Some communities, for example, are faith-based, while some are multilingual, with activities and dining options to complement. Still more are created for retired armed service or college or university alumni and sometimes are even situated on or near university campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for spouses as well as individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some facilities have as few as 20 residents, while some many have significantly more than 200.

With so many options to choose from, choosing the best community can seem overwhelming. Our Senior Living Advisors can assist. They live in the areas they serve. When you talk with a Senior Living Advisor, he or she will ask a few pre-determined questions to better learn what you are interested in, what your budget will be and what special wants your loved one may have. On top of that their assistance is free!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

For anyone who is asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you find out more about senior living. Here are some other hints that assisted living may be ideal for both your loved one and your family:

  • You are concerned for your loved one’s safety.
  • You are worried they aren’t eating properly.
  • You worry about them going out of the home by themselves.
  • You see they are spending much less time with friends and family.
  • You get a telephone call or email from a next door neighbor who's worried about them.
  • You observe that your loved one may have difficulty recalling people’s names or working with a well-known technology like their mobile phone or TV remote.

If these or various other signs are troubling you, do something. Contact A Place for Mom and speak to a Senior Living Advisor today. They can reply to your questions and help you figure out next steps. On top of that, their expertise is free of charge!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida supplies families with exceptional usage of its assisted living inspection and ratings records. Based on our state-by-state review of state records, Florida’s assisted living regulation and inspection program is one of the most transparent in the nation. To find the information of an assisted living facility in the wider Punta Gorda area, go to the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by service type to get inspection reports, licensure data, penalties and activities assessed against the facility, option of nursing staff, an emergency power plan summary and more.

The state of Florida mandates that new assisted living residents have a medical exam within 30 days of move-in to identify an individualized care strategy. The state also mandates the absolute minimum number of weekly employee hours determined by the number of people who reside in a community to make sure care plans will be accommodated.

10 Things to Look For When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

The simplest way to find out if an assisted living facility is right for your family member is to check out one -- or better yet, four or five of them! Here are a few things to pay attention to when you visit:

  1. Does the personnel connect to the residents?
  2. Is the home clean, odor-free and well looked after?
  3. Is there a procedure set up for determining the needs of a brand new resident?
  4. Can residents arrange for transportation if they need it?
  5. Are the staff professional and courteous?
  6. Are there specific visiting times or are friends and family welcome anytime?
  7. Will each resident possess a care plan in place?
  8. What happens if a resident’s requirements change?
  9. Is there an emergency program in place in case of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the individuals who live there remind you of your family member?

For more tips on what to look for while touring an assisted living community, see our Planning and Advice webpages.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Punta Gorda, Florida

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

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior does not have ample funds saved to cover long-term care, it’s common for households 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 offered to help cover the cost of moving while the home is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This special kind of insurance is made to pay for senior care expenses. Some policies could cover various other expenditures which can be incurred through the transition to assisted living, such as employing a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the armed service and may be eligible for help and support. Because many benefits go untouched, it’s worth it to check to discover if your loved one or his or her partner might meet the criteria. To learn more, go to va.gov or see our Guidebook to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are several methods to use life insurance to finance senior living determined by the kind of policy you hold. Consult with a life insurance or financial advisor to learn about whether this program might work for your needs.

Many households believe that Medicare will help purchase assisted living, but it can only cover short-term care. To learn more, go to Medicare's internet site.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary widely from community to facility, so it makes sense to do your research. Here are a few points that may impact just how much you pay:

  • Kind of residence
  • Size of house (studio, one- or two-bedroom house)
  • Types of solutions needed
  • Geographical area
  • Located area of the community
  • Level of opulence

Assisted living communities often charge a flat fee that covers many basic services, with additional fees added on for particular services. Various other facilities will charge a fee for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, so that residents pay just for the assistance they make use of. In most cases, the monthly base fee includes only lease and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance charges and deposits are also often required. Fees and prices vary by facility, therefore it’s beneficial to question facilities you are checking out about their costs and products and services.

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