Assisted Living in Naperville, Illinois

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a type of senior care and housing which offers residents support for activities of daily living (ADLs). Residents typically receive support for bathing, dressing, medication administration, and meals. Not the same as a skilled nursing community where residents receive around-the-clock nursing care, assisted living communities give residents access to care while also offering an array of activities and services in a community setting. Some assisted living communities also provide support for seniors with particular medical necessities such as for example cognitive loss because of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, diabetes, or incontinence care.

For anyone who is unsure about what sort of care your cherished one needs, speak with a medical professional who can help you select the best kind of care. Also, our Senior Living Advisors are available to answer any of your concerns and help you locate a senior care community that meets your needs.

  • Make sure to search for your family member, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities offer everything from homey conditions to upscale resort-style luxury living. It is easy to end up being influenced by the features and amenities you might choose for yourself, but in the end it comes down to what will work best for your family member.
  • Concentrate on the present, not the past. Does your family member need help bathing and getting dressed? Do they have special requirements like limited eyesight or special diets? Would they take pleasure in the benefits of a larger community or be more happy in a smaller, more intimate environment? Think about the here and now, not what may have been their decision ten or 15 years ago.
  • Arrange to tour at least 3 to 5 facilities, if you can. Start with scheduled tours 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 notes while you’re there.
