Assisted Living in St Petersburg, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide lodging and care to seniors who need some help with daily things like taking medicines, preparing meals and other personal care needs. Assisted living communities come in all shapes and sizes, so touring them is the best way to figure out which one is most beneficial for you or your family member.

What Services Are Available in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living community is like another. At a minimum, assisted living provides independently minded seniors living accommodations, meals, assistance with things like bathing and dressing as well as a wide range of activities such as for example wellness programs, social events, excursions plus much more, all in a safe and secure environment with their friends.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word '‚¬Assisted Living was initially utilized in the 1980s to explain a new kind of residential living for old individuals that was notably different from more customary nursing home models. Assisted living is created for people who need some help with some day to day activities but who still desire a specific level of independence and who wish to live in an apartment-like setting like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities provide a complete calendar of activities and events and provide a variety of meal options to serve the different tastes and preferences, including restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In contrast, the sign of nursing homes is that they supply skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the needs of seniors and other people who have medical conditions that require 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally offered in a common dining room and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also present short-term rehabilitative care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent treatment centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing services and long-term care communities. Because they provide more help and support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may offer memory care, which is specific support for individuals dealing with cognitive loss. In fact, 40% of the individuals who live in assisted living in the state of Florida are currently living with some form of dementia, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the earlier levels of Alzheimer s or dementia are best served by assisted living communities while people coping with later stages of dementia or Alzheimer's need the health care of a nursing facility.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every community can be different, here are a few characteristics that most assisted living communities share:

  • They provide different levels of care, occasionally at varied price points.
  • They offer different living options, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow residents to bring their own pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller dogs.
  • They focus on different backgrounds, cultures and passions. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while others are multilingual, with activities and dining choices to match. Some are designed for retired armed service veterans or university alumni and are situated on or near bases and campuses.
  • They will often offer communities for couples along with individuals.
  • They vary in size. Some communities have as few as 20 residents, while others many have more than 200.

How to Pay for Senior Living In St Petersburg, FL

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

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have enough money saved to cover long-term care, it s common for families to pool money to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their home to finance 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 special kind of insurance is made to finance senior care expenditures. Some guidelines may cover other expenses which can be incurred during the move to assisted living, for example hiring a case manager or treatment advisor.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the armed services and may be eligible for support. Because many benefits go unused, so it s worthwhile to check to find out if your loved one or his or her partner might qualify. To learn more, head to va.gov or visit our Guideline to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care page.
  • Sale of a life insurance policy. There are many ways to make use of life insurance coverage to finance senior living depending on the kind of plan you have. Consult with a life insurance or economic advisor to understand about whether this option might function for your situation.

Many family members assume that Medicare can help pay for assisted living, but it only covers short-term care. For more information, head to medicare.gov.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living costs differ broadly from community to community, so it pays to carry out your research. Here are some elements that can impact how much you pay:

  • Type of residence
  • Size of apartment (studio, one- or two-bedroom accommodation)
  • Types of services needed
  • Geographical location
  • Precise location of the community
  • Level of high end amenities

Assisted living communities frequently charge a flat rate that covers many basic services, with supplemental costs applied for unique services. Various other communities will charge a fee for each service, referred to as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents pay just for the options they use. Typically, the monthly base rate covers only rent and meals, with care charged separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also frequently required. Fees and prices vary by community, so it s important to talk to communities you are exploring about their costs and offerings.
