Assisted Living in Weeki Wachee, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide lodging and services to seniors who need some help with daily things like taking medications, making meals and keeping up with housework. Assisted living facilities come in all shapes and sizes, so visiting them may be the most effective way to figure out which one is best for you or your loved one.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

No assisted living community is similar to another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors meals and snack foods, help with things such as bathing and dressing, and a wide range of activities such as health and wellness programs, social events, outings and much more, all in a safe and secure environment with people their peers.

What Are ADLs?

If you are researching assisted living, you’ve probably come across 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 includes getting in and out of a bed or chair

Formulated in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an individual’s general health and function. In general, elderly adults who can take care of ADLs on their own but who are considering a switch to senior living could be better prospects for independent living. In case you have questions about what care type may be the best fit for your loved one, email A Place for Mom. Our Senior Living Advisors can answer any queries you may have about assisted living, independent living, memory care, life plan facilities and more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was first used in the 1980s to spell it out a innovative kind of residential living for older adults that was notably different from more traditional nursing home designs. Assisted living is made for people who need some support with daily activities but who still want level of independence and who want to reside in an apartment-like environment such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living communities offer a full schedule of activities and events and provide multiple meal options to cater to diverse tastes and preferences, including special diets and restaurant-style options. Small pets tend to be permitted.

In contrast, the hallmark of nursing homes is that they offer skilled nursing care. They are created to meet the needs of seniors and others who have health challenges that need to have 24x7 medical assistance. Meals are usually served in a central dining room and residents reside in individual 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 communities and long-term care facilities. Since they offer more help and support, nursing homes are more expensive than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living communities may provide memory care, which is specific support for people dealing with cognitive decline. In fact, 40% of the individuals who live in the state of Florida are living with some kind of dementia, according to the National Center for Assisted Living. In general, people living with the initial stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are greatest served by assisted living communities while people living with later levels of Alzheimer's need the medical care of a nursing home.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

While every facility is normally different, below are a few features that many assisted living facilities share:

  • They provide assorted degrees of care, occasionally at different costs.
  • They provide assorted living choices, from studios to one-bedroom flats.
  • Many allow residents to bring their private household pets, including birds, cats and in some instances smaller sized dogs.
  • They cater to differing backgrounds, traditions and hobbies. Some communities, for example, are faith-based, while some are multi-lingual, with activities and dining choices to match. Still more are made for retired armed service or college or university alumni and may be even located on or near university campuses.
  • They may offer accommodations for married couples as well as individuals.
  • They range in size. Some facilities have only 20 residents, while others many have significantly more than 200.

With so many choices to choose from, finding the right place can feel mind-boggling. Our Senior Living Advisors can help. They reside in the communities they serve. When you talk to a Senior Living Advisor, he or she will ask a few pre-determined questions to better learn what you are looking for, what your budget is going to be and what unique needs your family member may have. Best of all their help and advice is free of charge!

When Is It Time to Consider Assisted Living?

In the event you are 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 might be right for both your family member and your family:

  • You are worried for your loved one’s basic safety.
  • You are concerned they aren’t eating properly.
  • You feel concerned about them leaving the home alone.
  • You notice they are spending less time with family and friends.
  • You get a telephone call or note from a next door neighbor who's worried about them.
  • You discover that your family member may have difficulty remembering people’s names or working with a well-known technology like their mobile phone or TV remote.

If these or other symptoms are troubling you, take action. Get in touch with A Place for Mom and talk to a Senior Living Advisor today. They are able to reply to your questions and help you find out next steps. Best of all, their expertise is free of charge!

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 one of the most transparent in the country. To find the records of an assisted living community in the greater Weeki Wachee area, visit the FloridaHealthFinder.gov site and search by service type to locate inspection reports, licensure data, fees and actions 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 4 weeks of move-in to assess an personalized care program. The state also mandates the absolute minimum number of weekly staff member hours based on the number of individuals 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 right for your loved one is to visit 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 process in place for evaluating the needs of a brand new resident?
  4. Can residents request transport if they need it?
  5. Are the personnel professional and well-mannered?
  6. Are there specific visiting periods or are guests welcome anytime?
  7. Does each resident possess a care plan set up?
  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 individuals who live there remind you of your loved one?

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

How to Pay for Senior Living In Weeki Wachee, 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 a few of the most typical financing options for senior living:

  • Personal income or savings. If a senior will not have a sufficient amount of funds saved to cover long-term care, it’s common for households to combine money to create up the difference.
  • Home equity. Many times, seniors sell their house to fund senior living. In some instances, a bridge loan may be available to help cover the cost of moving while the house is prepared for sale.
  • Long-term care insurance. This unique kind of insurance is designed to include senior care expenses. Some policies may cover various other expenses that can be incurred while in the transition to assisted living, such as for example hiring a case manager or care coordinator.
  • Veterans benefits. Many seniors have served in the armed service and may be eligible for support. Because benefits are untouched, it’s worthwhile to check to see if your family member or their spouse may be eligible. To find out more, head 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 invest in senior living determined by the type of policy you hold. Consult with a life insurance or economic advisor to learn about whether this program might work for your circumstances.

Many family members expect that Medicare can 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 broadly from community to community, so it pays off to perform your research. Here are some points that can have an effect on just how much you pay:

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

Assisted living communities often charge a set rate that covers many basic solutions, with additional fees added on for special services. Additional communities will charge a fee for each individual service, known as a la carte payment, so that residents only pay for the support they make use of. In general, the monthly base rate covers only rent and meals, with care billed separately. Entrance fees and deposits are also often expected. Fees and prices can vary by community, therefore it’s necessary to ask facilities you are visiting about their costs and products and services.

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