Assisted Living in The Villages, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide lodging and care to seniors who want some support with daily things like taking medications, making meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living communities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting 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-one assisted living community is like another. At the very least, assisted living gives independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, help with things such as bathing and getting dressed, and a wide variety of activities such as for example wellness programs, cultural events, excursions and much more, all in a safe and secure setting with people their age.

What Are ADLs?

If you are researching assisted living, you’ve very likely 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 planning)
  • Continence
  • Functional mobility, which includes getting in and out of a bed or seat

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’s overall health and function. In general, elderly adults who can take care of ADLs by themselves but who are thinking about a move to senior living could be better prospects for independent living. If you have questions in what care type may be the best suit for your family member, call A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries 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 new sort of residential living for old adults that was notably not the same as more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is designed for individuals who want a certain amount of support with daily activities but who still want level of independence and who wish to reside in an apartment-like setting like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities provide a full calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal choices to cater to varied tastes and needs, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets are often permitted.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the needs of seniors and other people who have medical challenges that must have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a communal dining hall and residents reside in individual or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also include short-term therapeutic care. Nursing homes today are also called convalescent care centers, nursing centers, skilled nursing facilities and long-term care facilities. Due to the fact that they provide more support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for individuals dealing with cognitive impairment. Actually, 40% of the individuals who reside in the state of Florida are living with some type of Alzheimer's, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the initial stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are best supported by assisted living communities while people living with later stages of dementia require the health care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every facility is normally unique, here are some features that almost all assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide distinct levels of care and attention, sometimes at different costs.
  • They provide different living options, from studios to one-bedroom apartments.
  • Many allow residents to bring their personal pets, including birds, cats and in some cases smaller sized dogs.
  • They cater to different backgrounds, traditions and hobbies and interests. Some communities, for instance, are faith-based, while some are multi-lingual, 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 campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for spouses along with 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 facility can seem overwhelming. Our Senior Living Advisors will help. They live in the communities they serve. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, she or he 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 family member may have. Best of all their advice is free of charge!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

If you're asking this question, chances are good that it’s time you find out more about senior living. Here are some other indications that assisted living could be right for both your loved one and your family:

  • You are worried for your loved one’s well-being.
  • You are worried they aren’t eating correctly.
  • You get worried about them leaving the house by themselves.
  • You see they are spending much less time with friends and family.
  • You receive a telephone call or email from a neighbor who is concerned about them.
  • You discover that your family member may have trouble recalling people’s names or working with a well-known technology like their cellular phone or TV remote control.

If these or additional symptoms are worrying you, take action. Get in touch with A Place for Mom and talk to a Senior Living Advisor today. They are able to answer your questions and assist you to find out next steps. Best of all, their resources is cost-free!

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings

Florida supplies families with superb 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 system is one of the most transparent in the nation. To find the records of an assisted living community in the greater The Villages area, visit the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by facility type to find inspection reviews, licensure data, fines and activities assessed against the facility, option of nursing staff, an emergency power plan overview and more.

The state of Florida mandates that new assisted living residents have a medical exam within a month of move-in to identify an personalized care plan. The state also mandates the absolute minimum number of weekly staff member hours determined by the number of people who live in a community to ensure care plans will be accommodated.

10 Things to Look For When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

The best way to figure out if an assisted living facility is ideal for your family member is to go to one -- or even better, four or five of them! Here are some things to be aware of when you visit:

  1. Does the staff interact with the residents?
  2. Is the home clean, odor-free and well taken care of?
  3. Is there a process in place for assessing the needs of a brand new resident?
  4. Can residents request transport if they require it?
  5. Are the staff professional and courteous?
  6. Are there particular visiting times or are guests welcome anytime?
  7. Will each resident have a care plan in place?
  8. What happens if a resident’s needs change?
  9. Is there a crisis plan in place in the event of a natural or manmade disaster?
  10. Do the people who live there remind you of your loved one?

For more tips about what to search for while touring an assisted living facility, see our Planning and Advice pages.

How to Pay for Senior Living In The Villages, Florida

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

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have ample funds saved to pay for long-term care, it’s common for households to pool funds to make up the difference.
  • Home equity. Often, seniors sell their places of residence to fund senior living. Occasionally, a bridge loan could be available to help cover the expense of moving while the house is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This particular kind of insurance is designed to cover senior care expenses. Some policies may cover other expenses which can be incurred during the transition to assisted living, such as hiring a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the military and may be eligible for support. Because benefits are untouched, it’s worthwhile to check to see if your loved one or his / her partner might meet the requirements. To learn more, go to va.gov or see our Guideline 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 finance senior living based on the kind of policy you have. Consult a life insurance or economic counselor to learn about if this option might work for your circumstances.

Many family members believe that Medicare will pay for assisted living, but it can only cover short-term care. To find out more, go to Medicare's website.

Understanding Assisted Living Costs

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

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

Assisted living facilities often charge a flat fee that covers many basic solutions, with extra fees added on for particular services. Various other communities will charge a service charge for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, to ensure that residents pay just for the support they make use of. In most cases, the monthly base fee includes only lease and meals, with care charged separately. Entrance costs and deposits are also frequently expected. Fees and prices vary by community, so it’s beneficial to question communities you are researching about their costs and services.

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