Assisted Living in Valrico, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer lodging and services to seniors who want some support with daily things like taking medications, making meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living facilities come in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the best way to figure out which one is best for you 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 gives independently minded seniors meals and snacks, help with things like showering and dressing, and a wide variety of activities such as for example wellness programs, social events, outings plus much more, all in a safe and sound environment among people their age.

What Are ADLs?

In the event you researching 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 preparation)
  • Continence
  • Functional mobility, which include getting in and out of a bed or chair

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs assess an individual’s overall health and function. Generally, older adults who can manage ADLs on their own but who are considering a switch to senior living may be better prospects for independent living. If you have questions in what care type may be the best fit for your loved one, call A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any questions you may have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan communities and even more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The term “assisted living” was first found in the 1980s to describe a unique sort of residential living for older adults that was notably not the same as more typical nursing home models. Assisted living is created for individuals who need a certain amount of assistance with day to day activities but who still want degree of independence and who want to reside in an apartment-like situation like a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. A large number of assisted living facilities provide a full calendar of activities and events and offer multiple meal options to focus on many different tastes and needs, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be allowed.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are designed to meet the requirements of seniors and others who have health challenges that need to have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are generally served in a central dining area and residents live in private or shared bedrooms. Some nursing homes also give short-term therapeutic 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 support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living communities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may provide memory care, which is specialized support for individuals dealing with cognitive decline.
