Assisted Living in Caseyville, Illinois

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a kind of senior care and housing that offers residents support for activities of daily living (ADLs). Residents typically receive support for bathing, dressing, medication management, and meals. Different from a skilled nursing community where residents receive around-the-clock nursing care, assisted living facilities give residents access to care while also offering an array of activities and amenities in a community setting. Some assisted living communities provide support for seniors with certain medical necessities such as for example cognitive loss because of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, diabetes, or incontinence health care.

In case you are unsure about what kind of care your loved one needs, consult with a medical professional who can help you select the best sort of care. Also, our Senior Living Advisors are standing by to answer any of your concerns and help you find a senior care facility that meets your needs.

What Is Senior Living Like in Caseyville, IL?

Boasting four distinct seasons and gorgeous Midwest landscapes, Illinois is a beautiful destination to retire. Home to one of the world’s largest airports, retiring in Illinois offers your friends and relations a convenient destination to visit, while as well as offering you easy access to world travel.

When it comes to selecting senior living, there are plenty of things to consider, from the level of attention and support to way of living, location and more. Caseyville, IL offers many possible choices to help you make a confident and informed decision for your family.

  • 55+ Apartments/Senior Apartments: Generally known as adult communities, age-restricted apartments, and senior condos. Senior apartments are just like apartments for folks of all ages, but have an age restriction; typically residents must be older than 55 or 62. Older adults typically feel more secure in senior apartments and prefer living around people from their own generation.
  • Independent Living: Independent living is a type of senior housing for seniors who still live independently but want to reside in a community setting with various other seniors. This type of senior housing typically has community events, entertainment, excursions, and in some cases has transitional programs for seniors who ultimately need assisted living.
  • Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs): Continuing care retirement communities are retirement communities with accommodations for independent living, assisted living and nursing home care, giving seniors a continuum of care. A person can spend the remainder of his life in a CCRC or life plan community, moving between degrees of care as needed. This type of arrangement is also called “aging in place,” though it does require departing one’s original home.
  • Adult Day Care: Adult day care can offer respite care for caregivers who remain working while also looking after a loved one. That is a great alternative for caregivers and seniors looking for ways to remain active and involved while living in the home and receiving home care solutions.
  • Residential Care Home/Board and Care: Care homes are typical homes in residential neighborhoods which may have been adapted to care for a small number of residents. Offering solutions similar to assisted living communities, care homes specialize in providing personalized good care in a home-like environment.
  • Assisted Living: Assisted living gives residents assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) like washing, personal grooming, medication supervision, and more. Amenities and services can vary greatly but typically there is staff on hand around the clock to assist residents with wants as they arise. Residents also routinely have a care plan that is regularly monitored and adapted as requirements change as time passes.
  • Memory Care: This sort of attention is normally for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other kinds of dementia. These facilities are usually especially designed to ensure that residents do not get lost or wander. They offer dementia-friendly meal plans and life enhancing activities that promote engagement and personal interaction.
  • Nursing Homes/Skilled Nursing Facilities: Nursing homes, also known as skilled nursing facilities, are for seniors who require the highest level of 24- hour health care, including those who are bedridden. Nursing homes are also utilized by seniors for rehabilitation after a hospital stay.
  • Respite Care/Short-Term Stay Respite: This care typically refers to a short-term stay at a long-term care facility. Respite care may also make reference to in-home caregiving services used for just a short period. Family caregivers make use of respite services if they need a break or have other obligations.
  • Hospice Care: Hospice care benefits the terminally ill and their families make the most of the last days of their lives. Originated in the term “hospitality,” hospice is not a place, but a philosophy of care that embraces loss of life as a natural part of life, and looks to to support individuals meet this end with dignity and grace. This implies comforting the individual on an emotional level and physically while assisting their family members as they navigate any end of life decisions.

What Services Are Available?

The options and services offered in senior living can vary greatly from community to facility. However, most facilities offer studio, one-room or two-bedroom apartments, activities, meal plans, transportation, and other experiences.

Other amenities often within assisted living include:

  • Access to medical services
  • Access to therapies on-site and off-site
  • Fitness and nutrition programs
  • Housekeeping services
  • Medication management

How Do I Tour Assisted Living Facilities?

Caseyville has 48 communities in the region so it is essential to tour several assisted living communities before choosing the best one for your senior loved one. That way you'll discover what options can be found and will have an easier time narrowing down your choices. Call or get in touch with A Place for Mom and we'll help you create a visit at your most wanted community.

Here are a few of the best questions you need to be ready to ask throughout your visit:

  • Are there any outdoor spaces that people can enjoy? If so, are they kept orderly and in good appearance?
  • Can your staff give prescription medication?
  • Do you have a nurse on-site 24/7?
  • Do you include all of your services in the monthly cost? If not, just how much are extra services?
  • Does your policy include an initial assessment prior to admission?
  • Is there a waitlist? If so, how many people are currently on it?
  • What accommodation types are available and what exactly are their price ranges?
  • What are the existing residents like?
  • What are your invoicing and payment policies and methods?
  • What is the staff-to-resident ratio? Are the personnel involved? Friendly?
  • What's your release plan?
  • What sort of education do your workers have?
  • You should also pay close attention to any residents you meet or move while you’re there. Do they seem content and are they cared for well?

Will Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

According to Medicare.gov, “Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 or older, certain younger people with disabilities and people with End-Stage Renal Disease.”

Medicare covers only short-term, non-custodial care. As a consequence you cannot use Medicare to cover long-term nursing home stays or assisted living.

If it is important to yourself, don’t forget to ask about faith based services.
  • Cleanliness: Does the community feel clean and fresh? Be sure to look beyond the furniture and into baseboards, corners, and windows. Ask how often house cleaning services are made available in the private living area. Make sure you get complete details on the types of maintenance provided and the estimated response times. Don’t forget to ask about laundry procedures. Ask for information on what is made available and at what price.

When visiting communities, it is valuable to discuss entree choices and find out about dining hours, options, and policies. Be sure you and your loved one enjoy a meal at community. It's not only the best way to try out the cooking, but it’s an excellent possibility to meet other people. Make sure to go over what happens if a resident is not able to make it to the dining room for a meal.

Find out about other basic safety features available in living quarters and through the entire facility. Make sure you find out about staffing routines to determine who is on-site consistently to aid residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing routines differ during the night? How will the facility assist or manage residents’ medication needs?
  • Trust your gut: As you are touring, be sure you think about yourself or your family member actually living at the facility. Can you imagine your family member feeling secure? Do you feel at ease? Are the personnel and residents receptive, inviting and amiable?

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Finding the right assisted living facility is an important decision, both for a senior and for their family members.

Here are five things to consider when considering making the move to assisted living:

  1. How many staff are on hand to assist at night? Some assisted living communities provide 24x7 nursing staff, while others may have more generalized help on hand after hours.
  2. Will there be a waitlist? Popular communities can fill fast. If the one you like isn't available, inquire about the waitlist and what the community’s policy is for administering it. Many facilities will require a deposit and some communities have internal lists for special health care needs. Here is where doing your homework can seriously pay back - plan in advance!
  3. Is there an outdoor space? For many residents making the transition from a private residence to assisted living means leaving behind a beloved yard or back yard, so having access to a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard can be important. Many larger assisted living communities offer a selection of outdoor space, with features such as BBQ spaces, gardens, and strolling paths for facility events.
  4. What is the staff-to-resident ratio? Will this community give your loved one with the help and support they need? Based on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living facilities have a ratio of 1 personal care associates for every 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely depending on the size of the facility, so make certain to ask about the features you are looking for.
  5. What services are included in the monthly charge? Before signing the agreement, it’s smart to understand what is included in the basic fee arrangement and what might incur an additional fee. Some facilities employ a fee-for-service model, or a la carte pricing, this means they ask for a monthly cost for rent and meals but supplemental charges for things like medication management. Others may use a tiered pricing model where different levels of care are billed different fees.

What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a Facility?

With so many choices to choose from, finding the right assisted living facility can seem like an intimidating task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors can help - they are specialists in helping match seniors to the communities that will be the best fit for his or her care needs, personality, and budget.

Here are a few things to take into account during your search:

  • Be sure to look for your family member, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities offer everything from homey conditions to upscale resort-style luxury living. It might be easy to come to be tempted by the features and creature comforts you may decide for yourself, but finally it comes down to what will function best for your family member.
  • Focus on the present, not the past. Will your family member need help washing and getting dressed? Do they have special needs like limited eye-sight or special diets? Would they like the perks of a larger community or be more contented in a smaller, more personal setting? Take into account the here and now, not what might have been their decision ten or 15 years back.
  • Arrange to tour at least three to five communities, if you can. Start with planned visits and consider having a meal with the residents. If none of the places seem like a good fit, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more options. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take down notes while you’re there.

The process of selecting the most appropriate assisted living facility can be overpowering, but there are resources which will help. Call A Place for Mom today - we can help save you money and time and help you make the right choice.
