Assisted Living in Rotonda West, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide lodging and services to seniors who want some assistance with daily things like taking medicines, making meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living communities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so touring them may be the best way to determine which one is most beneficial for you personally or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No assisted living facility is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, help with things such as showering and getting dressed, and a wide selection of activities such as wellness programs, social events, outings plus much more, all in a safe and sound setting with people their age.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you considering 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
  • Getting dressed
  • Feeding (but not meal planning)
  • Continence
  • Functional mobility, which includes getting back in and out of a bed or seat

Established 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 thinking about a switch to senior living may be better prospects for independent living. For those who have questions about what care type is the best suit for your loved one, contact A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries 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 new sort of residential living for old adults that was significantly different from more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is created for people who need a certain amount of assistance with daily activities but who still want level of independence and who wish to reside in an apartment-like situation like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living communities provide a complete schedule of activities and events and provide multiple meal options to accommodate the varied tastes and needs, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In contrast, the sign of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the requirements of seniors and others who have medical challenges that require 24x7 medical attention. Meals are generally served in a central dining room and residents reside in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing communities and long-term care communities. Due to the fact that they provide more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for individuals coping with cognitive decline. Actually, 40% of the people who reside in the state of Florida are currently living with some type of Alzheimer's, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are effectively served by assisted living communities while people living with later levels of dementia need the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community is usually unique, below are a few features that almost all assisted living facilities share:

  • They offer assorted levels of care, occasionally at different costs.
  • They provide different living options, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many permit people to bring their own small pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller sized dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, traditions and hobbies and interests. Some facilities, for example, are faith-based, while others are multilingual, with activities and dining options to match. Still more are created for retired military or university alumni and sometimes are even situated on or near university campuses.
  • They could offer accommodations for partners along with individuals.
  • They range in proportions. Some communities have as few as 20 residents, while others many have significantly more than 200.

With so many choices to choose from, finding the right community can seem overpowering. Our Senior Living Advisors will help. They live in the communities they serve. When you talk with a Senior Living Advisor, he or she will ask a few questions to better determine what you are interested in, what your budget is going to be and what particular desires your loved one may have. Best of all their help and advice is no cost!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

If you are asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you learn more about senior living. Here are some other hints that assisted living may be ideal for both your family member and your family:

  • You are concerned for your loved one’s safety.
  • You are concerned they aren’t eating correctly.
  • You worry about them leaving the house alone.
  • You notice they are spending less time with family and friends.
  • You receive a phone call or note from a neighbor who's worried about them.
  • You discover that your family member may have trouble recalling people’s names or working with a familiar technology like their cellular phone or TV remote.

If these or other indicators are troubling you, take action. Get in touch with A Place for Mom and talk to a Senior Living Advisor today. They can answer your questions and help you figure out next steps. On top of that, their knowledge is free!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida provides families with superb access to 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 among the most transparent in the country. To find the information of an assisted living facility in the greater Rotonda West area, visit the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by service type to obtain inspection reviews, licensure data, fees and actions assessed against the facility, availability of nursing staff, an emergency power plan summary and more.

The state of Florida requires that new assisted living residents have a medical examination within 4 weeks of move-in to determine an individualized care program. The state also mandates a baseline number of weekly staff member hours depending on the number of individuals who reside in a community to ensure care plans can be accommodated.

10 Things to Look For When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

The simplest way to figure out if an assisted living facility is ideal for your loved one is to go to one -- or better yet, four or five of them! Here are a few points to take note of when you visit:

  1. Does the personnel connect to the residents?
  2. Is the community clean, odor-free and well taken care of?
  3. Is there a procedure set up for assessing the needs of a new resident?
  4. Can residents arrange for transport if they need it?
  5. Are the personnel professional and polite?
  6. Are there particular visiting times or are guests welcome anytime?
  7. Does each resident possess a care plan set up?
  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 visiting an assisted living community, see our Planning and Advice pages.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Rotonda West, Florida

How to finance assisted living is among the most typical questions families have when 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 families to combine funds to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Many times, seniors sell their homes to fund senior living. In some instances, a bridge loan could be offered to help cover the expense of moving while the house is readied for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is made to cover senior care expenses. Some policies may cover additional expenditures which can be incurred during the transition to assisted living, such as acquiring a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and may qualify for support. Because benefits are unused, it’s worthwhile to check to discover if your family member or his / her spouse might qualify. To find out more, go to va.gov or see our Guide 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 invest in senior living depending on the kind of policy you have. Consult a life insurance or financial counselor to understand about if this program might work for your situation.

Many families assume that Medicare will assist pay for assisted living, but it really can only cover short-term care. To learn more, go to Medicare's website.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs vary widely from community to facility, so that it makes sense to perform your research. Here are some items that may influence how much you spend:

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

Assisted living communities frequently charge a flat fee that covers many basic solutions, 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 support they make use of. In most cases, the monthly base fee covers only lease and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often expected. Fees and prices can vary by facility, therefore it’s important to talk to communities you are researching about their costs and products and services.

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