Assisted Living in West Palm Beach, Florida

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities provide housing and care to seniors who need some help with daily activities such as taking medications, preparing meals and other individualized care needs. Assisted living facilities can be found in all sizes and shapes, so visiting them is the ideal way to figure out which one is best for you or your family member.

What Services Are Available in Assisted Living?

No one assisted living community is like another. At the very least, assisted living provides independently minded seniors living accommodations, meals, assistance with things like showering and getting dressed as well as a wide variety of activities such as for example wellness programs, social occasions, outings and much more, all in a safe and secure setting with their friends.

What Are ADLs?

In case you are researching assisted living you’ve likely come across the acronym ADLs, which stands for the Activities of Daily Living. ADLs include:

  • Bathing and showering
  • Toileting
  • Dressing
  • Eating (but not meal cooking)
  • Continence care
  • Functional mobility, which includes getting into and out of a bed or chair

Developed in the 1950s, ADLs evaluate an person's overall health and function. In general, elderly people who can take care of ADLs by themselves but who are considering a proceed to senior living could be better applicants for independent living.

For those who have questions in what care type is the best match for your loved one, contact 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 more.

Assisted Living Vs. Nursing Homes

The word “assisted living” was initially utilized in the 1980s to describe a new kind of home living for older adults that was remarkably unlike more traditional nursing home models. Assisted living is made for individuals who need some help with some daily activities but who still desire a particular level of self-sufficiency and who want to reside in an apartment-like set up such as a studio or a one-bedroom apartment. Many assisted living facilities offer a full calendar of activities and events and provide a variety of meal options to appeal to different tastes and requirements, including restaurant-style options. Small pets are often allowed.

In comparison, the sign of nursing homes is that they provide skilled nursing care. They are made to fulfill the requirements of seniors and other people who have medical types of conditions that require 24x7 medical attention. Meals or snacks are generally offered in a central eating area 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, qualified nursing services and long-term care communities. Because they offer more help and support, nursing homes are more costly than assisted living facilities.

Both skilled nursing and assisted living facilities may offer memory care, which is specific support for individuals managing cognitive loss.
