Assisted Living in Hanna City, Illinois

What Is Assisted Living?

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

When you are unsure about what sort of care your family member needs, speak with a medical professional who can help you select the best kind of care. Also, our Senior Living Advisors are standing by to answer any of your queries and help you discover a senior care facility that meets your preferences.

What Is Senior Living Like in Hanna City, 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.

With regards to selecting senior living, there are lots of points to consider, from the amount of health care and support to lifestyle, location and more. Hanna City, IL offers many options so you can make a confident and informed decision for your family.

  • 55+ Apartments/Senior Apartments: Also referred to as adult communities, age-restricted apartments, and senior condos. Senior apartments are just like apartments for people of all ages, but they have an age restriction; typically residents are required to be more than 55 or 62. Older adults quite often 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 stay in a community setting with additional seniors. This sort of senior housing typically has community events, entertainment, excursions, and in some cases has transitional programs for seniors who gradually need assisted living.
  • Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs): Continuing care retirement communities are retirement facilities with accommodations for independent living, assisted living and nursing home care, giving residents a continuum of health care. A person can spend the remainder of his life in a CCRC or life plan community, moving between levels of health care as needed. This type of arrangement is also called “aging in place,” although it does require leaving one’s original residence.

How will the facility assist or manage residents’ medication needs?

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

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

Listed below are five things to consider when thinking about making the move to assisted living:

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

What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a Community?

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

Below are a few things to remember during your search:

  • Make sure you search for your loved one, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities offer everything from homey environments to upscale resort-style high end living. It might be easy to come to be tempted by the features and amenities you might choose for yourself, but ultimately it comes down to what will work best for your loved one.
  • Focus on the present, not the past. Does your loved one need help washing and getting dressed? Do they have special requirements like limited eyesight or special diet plans? Would they like the benefits of a larger community or be more relaxed in a smaller, more intimate setting? Think about the here and now, not what may have been their choice ten or 15 years ago.
  • Plan to see at least 3 to 5 communities, if you can. Start with planned visits and consider having meals with the residents. If none of the places seem like a good fit, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more alternatives. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take down notes while you’re there.

The process of deciding on the best assisted living community can be overpowering, but there are solutions which will help. Call A Place for Mom today - we are able to help save you money and time and help you make the right choice.
