Assisted Living in Paris, 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 administration, and meals. Not the same as a skilled nursing facility where residents receive around-the-clock nursing care, assisted living communities give residents access to care while as well as offering an array of activities and services in a community setting. Some assisted living communities also provide support for seniors with specific medical necessities such as cognitive loss due to Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, diabetes, or incontinence health care.

Should you be unsure about what kind of care your loved one needs, speak with a medical expert who can help you decide on the best kind of care. Additionally, our Senior Living Advisors are standing by to answer all of your concerns and help you discover a senior care facility that meets your needs.

What Is Senior Living Like in Paris, IL?

Boasting four distinct seasons and gorgeous Midwest scenery, Illinois is a lovely spot to retire. Home to one of the world’s largest airports, retiring in Illinois gives your family and friends a convenient location to visit, while likewise giving you easy access to world travel.

In terms of deciding on senior living, there are many points to consider, from the level of care and support to way of living, location and more. Paris, IL has many choices in order to make a confident and informed decision for your loved ones.

  • 55+ Apartments/Senior Apartments: Also referred to as adult communities, age-restricted apartments, and senior condos. Senior apartments are simply like apartments for folks of all ages, but they have an age restriction; typically residents are required to be older than 55 or 62. Older adults sometimes feel more secure in senior apartments and prefer living in close proximity to persons from their own generation.
  • Independent Living: Independent living is a type of senior housing for seniors who now live independently but want to live in a community setting with various other seniors. This type of senior housing typically has community events, entertainment, outings, and oftentimes has transitional programs for seniors who eventually 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 residents a continuum of care. A person can spend the rest of his life in a CCRC or life plan community, moving between degrees of care as needed.

How does the community assist or manage residents’ medication requirements?

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Community

Choosing the best assisted living community is a significant decision, both for a senior and for their relatives.

Listed below are five things to consider when thinking about 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 some may have more generalized help on hand after hours.
  2. Will there be a waitlist? Popular facilities can fill up fast. If the one you like isn't available, inquire about the waitlist and what the facility’s plan is for administering it. Many communities will require a deposit plus some communities have internal lists for special care needs. Here is where doing all your homework can seriously pay off - plan ahead!
  3. Will there be an outdoor space? For many residents making the transition from a private residence to assisted living means leaving behind a beloved backyard or outdoor area, so gaining access to a gardening area, a patio or a courtyard is normally beneficial. Many larger assisted living facilities offer a range of outdoor space, with features such as for example BBQ areas, gardens, and going for walks paths for facility events.
  4. What's the staff-to-resident ratio? Will this community offer 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 communities have a ratio of 1 personal care assistants for each and every 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely depending on the size of the facility, so make certain to enquire about the features you are searching for.
  5. What services are included in the monthly rate? Before signing the agreement, it’s smart to understand what is included in the basic fee structure 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 charge for rent and meals but supplemental charges for things such as medication management. Others could use a tiered pricing model where different levels of care are billed distinct service fees.

What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a Community?

With so many choices to choose from, choosing the best 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 are the best fit for their care requirements, personality, and budget.

Here are a few things to bear in mind during your search:

  • Make sure you look for your family member, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities offer everything from homey environments to upscale resort-style high end living. It can be easy to end up being tempted by the features and creature comforts you might choose for yourself, but eventually it comes down to what will work best for your family member.
  • Focus on the present, not the past. Will your family member need support washing and getting dressed? Do they have special requirements like limited eye sight or special meal plans? Would they enjoy the perks of a larger facility or be more relaxed in a smaller, more personal setting? Take into account the here and now, not what may have been their choice ten or 15 years ago.
  • Arrange to tour at least 3 to 5 communities, if you can. Start with scheduled 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 alternatives. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take down notes while you’re there.

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