Assisted Living in Robinson, Illinois

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a type 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 community where residents receive around-the-clock nursing care, assisted living facilities give residents access to care while as well as offering an array of activities and features in a community setting. Some assisted living communities provide support for seniors with certain medical requirements such as for example cognitive loss due to Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, diabetes, or incontinence health care.

Should you be unsure about what sort of care your cherished one needs, consult with a medical professional who can help you select the best kind of care. Additionally, our Senior Living Advisors are standing by to answer all of your concerns and help you find a senior care community that meets your needs.

What Is Senior Living Like in Robinson, IL?

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

In terms of selecting senior living, there are numerous points to consider, from the amount of care and support to lifestyle, location and more. Robinson, IL has many choices so you can make a confident and educated decision for your loved ones.

  • 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 over the age of 55 or 62. Older adults sometimes feel more secure in senior apartments and prefer living around people from their own generation.
  • Independent Living: Independent living is a kind of senior housing for seniors who now live independently but want to live in a community setting with additional seniors. This sort of senior housing typically has community events, entertainment, excursions, and often 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, providing seniors a continuum of care. A person can spend the rest of his life in a CCRC or life plan community, moving between levels of care as needed. This type of arrangement is also called “aging in place,” though it does require departing one’s original residence.

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Choosing the best assisted living community is a significant 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 some may have more generalized help available 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 facility’s policy is for administering it. Many facilities will require a deposit plus some communities have internal lists for special care needs. Here's where doing all your homework can actually pay off - 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 lawn or back yard, so the ability to access a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is normally important. Many larger assisted living communities offer a selection of outdoor space, with features such as BBQ areas, gardens, and taking walks paths for facility events.
  4. What's the staff-to-resident ratio? Will this community offer your cherished one with the help and support they need? In line with 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 be sure to enquire about the services you are searching for.
  5. What services are included in the monthly charge? Before signing the contract, it’s smart to understand what is included in the basic cost arrangement and what might incur an extra cost. Some facilities employ a fee-for-service model, or a la carte pricing, which means they ask for a monthly cost for rent and meals but supplemental charges for things such as medication management. Others may use a tiered pricing model where different degrees of service are billed different service fees.

What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a Community?

With so many options to choose from, choosing the best assisted living community can seem like a daunting task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors can help - they are specialists in helping match seniors to the facilities that will be the best fit for their care requirements, personality, and budget.

Here are a few things to remember during your search:

  • Make sure to look for your loved one, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities offer everything from homey environments to upscale resort-style five star living. It could be easy to come to be swayed by the features and creature comforts you may choose for yourself, but eventually it comes down to what will work best for your loved one.
  • Concentrate on the present, not the past. Does your loved one need support washing and dressing? Do they have special requirements like limited vision or special diet plans? Would they enjoy the benefits of a larger facility or be more comfortable in a smaller, more personal environment? Take into account the here and now, not what may have been their choice ten or 15 years ago.
  • Plan to see at least 3 to 5 facilities, 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 choices. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take notes while you’re there.

The process of deciding on the best assisted living community can be difficult, but there are resources which will help. Call A Place for Mom today - we can help save you time and money and help you make a good choice.
