Assisted Living in St. Charles, Illinois

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a kind of senior care and housing that provides 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 as well as offering a variety 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 due to Alzheimer s disease or dementia, diabetes, or incontinence health care.

When you are unsure about what kind of care your family member needs, consult with a medical professionall who can help you select the best sort of care. Also, our Senior Living Advisors are available to answer all of your concerns and help you locate a senior care community that meets your preferences.

What Is Senior Living Like in St. Charles, IL?

Boasting four distinct seasons and lovely 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 location to visit, while as well as offering you easy access to world travel.

With regards to deciding on senior living, there are lots of points to consider, from the level of health care and support to life style, location and more. St. Charles, IL offers many possible choices so you can 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 individuals of all ages, but 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 in close proximity to people from their own generation.
  • Independent Living: Independent living is a type of senior housing for seniors who now live independently but want to stay in a community setting with additional seniors. This type 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 communities with accommodations for independent living, assisted living and nursing home care, providing residents a continuum of 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 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. This is a great alternative for caregivers and seniors researching ways to remain active and engaged while living in the home and getting home care solutions.
  • Residential Care Home/Board and Care: Care homes are regular homes in residential neighborhoods that have been adapted to care for a small group of residents. Offering solutions similar to assisted living communities, care homes specialize in providing individualized care in a home-like environment.
  • Assisted Living: Assisted living gives residents assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) like bathing, personal grooming, medication administration, and more. Amenities and services can range greatly but commonly there is staff on hand around the clock to help residents with requirements as they arise. Residents likewise routinely have a care plan that is frequently monitored and adapted as necessities change over time.
  • Memory Care: This type of health care is normally for seniors with Alzheimer s disease and other types of dementia. These communities are generally specifically planned to ensure that residents don’t get lost or wander. They provide dementia-friendly meal plans and life enhancing activities that promote engagement and social interaction.
  • Nursing Homes/Skilled Nursing communities: Nursing homes, also called skilled nursing communities, are for seniors who require the highest degree of 24- hour care, including those people who are bedridden. Nursing homes are also used by seniors for rehabilitation following a hospitalization.
  • Respite Care/Short-Term Stay Respite: This care typically refers to a short-term stay at a long-term care community. Respite care may also make reference to in-home caregiving services used for simply a short period. Family caregivers utilize respite services if they need a break or have other obligations.
  • Hospice Care: Hospice care can help the terminally ill and their families make the most of the last days of their lives. Originated in the word ‘‚¬hospitality hospice isn’t a location, but a philosophy of care that embraces loss of life as a natural part of life, and looks to to aid individuals meet this end with dignity and grace. This means comforting the individual emotionally and physically while aiding their loved ones as they navigate any end of life decisions.

What Services Are Available?

The amenities and services provided in senior living can vary substantially from community to community. However, most communities offer studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartments, activities, meal plans, transportation, and other amenities.

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 Communities ?

St. Charles has 272 communities in the area 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 are available and will have an easier time narrowing down your alternatives. Call or get in touch with A Place for Mom and we will help you arrange a tour at your most wanted community.

Here are a few of the top questions you should be ready to ask during your tour:

  • Are there any outdoor spaces that residents can enjoy? If so, are they kept orderly and nice looking?
  • Can your staff administer medicine?
  • Do you have a nurse on-site 24/7?
  • Do you include all of your services in the monthly charge? If not, just how much are extra services?
  • Does your policy require a preliminary assessment before move in?
  • Is there a waitlist? If so, how many persons are currently on it?
  • What accommodation types are available and what exactly are their costs?
  • What are the current residents like?
  • What exactly are your invoicing and payment guidelines and methods?
  • What is the staff-to-resident ratio? Are the personnel interested? Friendly?
  • What’s your discharge policy?
  • What kind of knowledge do your personnel have?
  • You should also pay close attention to any occupants 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 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. This means you cannot use Medicare to cover long-term nursing home stays or assisted living. Medicare covers medically necessary skilled care at a nursing home if you need short-term skilled care for an illness or injury and you meet certain conditions.

How Can I View Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Illinois?

The state of Illinois offers great access to its assisted living community records through its Department of Social Services website. Info available to review includes licensed assisted living communities that are updated regularly, and info on assisted living licensing and violations.

In the state of Illinois, assisted living communities are required by law to:

  • Have a license if housing 17 or more unrelated individuals
  • Have over 80% of residents be 55 years old or older
  • Provide each resident with a written service plan which includes a doctor s analysis and evaluation
  • Provide personal and health services 24 hours a day with staff assisting with personal necessities such as showering, eating, and personal hygiene

How Do I Choose the best Assisted Living community?

Finding the right community for your senior loved one is one of the most important decisions you can make. During your visit, consider the standard of care that your loved one may receive. Your choice of ‘‚¬Å“if, when and where to move resides specifically with you as well as your family, so think about what factors are actually essential to you and your family member.

  • Activities: It s smart to try and schedule your tour together with community get-togethers. Ask the manager if you can watch the entertainment or even get involved. Are the activities and occasions well attended? Does the team members seem to be making the most of the activity as well? Check out the community calendar of get-togethers. Do they match your loved one s likes and dislikes? Do the activities and events vary in size and type? Do they provide excursions and trips away from the community? If it’s important to you and your family, don t forget to ask about religious services.
  • Cleanliness: Does the community feel clean and fresh? Be sure to look beyond the furnishings and into baseboards, corners, and windows. Ask how frequently house cleaning services are offered in the private living area. Make sure you get full information on the types of maintenance provided and the approximated response times. Don t forget to enquire about laundry procedures. Ask for particulars on what’s available and at what price.
  • Friendliness: The attitude and friendliness of the staff are of the utmost importance. Make sure that you observe some employees communicating with current occupants. Do they pay attention and make eye contact? Be sure to acquire a good understanding of the staffing routine. Just how many people are actually involved in residents care? Be sure to receive an introduction to the management team. This can help you understand the goals and objectives of the community. It’s important that you trust the community s personnel.
  • Meals: As with the majority of us, the dining area experience is essential to seniors. When visiting communities, it is important to discuss entree choices and find out about dining hours, alternatives, and procedures. Make sure you and your family member enjoy a meal at community. It’s not only the best way to try the food, but it s an excellent possibility to meet other folks. Make sure to discuss what goes on if a resident is not able to make it to the dining area for meals.
  • Reputation: Ask people and family members, past and present, for his or her honest opinions about the community. Many communities have a resident council that’ll be happy to help answer any of your concerns. Visit our website to see a number of the 1667 reviews from family members who’ve shared their impressions of specific communities.
  • Security and safety: Security and safety features are very important and offer peace of mind for the caregiver. Be sure that bathing rooms are accessible and also have grab bars in convenient places. Ask how residents contact the staff if they have an an urgent situation in their living area. Find out about other security features in living quarters and throughout the community. Be sure to learn about staffing patterns to determine who is on-site consistently to assist residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing schedules differ during the night? How will the community assist or manage residents medication needs?
  • Trust your gut: As you are visiting, be sure you consider yourself or your family member truly living at the community. Can you imagine your family member feeling comfortable? Do you really feel at ease? Are the team members and residents open, welcoming and friendly?

How to Pay for Assisted Living

Many people pay for a move to assisted living through the sale of a house or personal savings, but for some people, this may not be an choice. Listed below are three additional strategies that may help you pay for assisted living:

  1. Life Insurance Policies: If the parent or senior family member you are helping move into assisted living has a life insurance policy, you may be able to liquidate the insurance plan and receive the funds immediately. Different policies and constraints apply according to the type of coverage you have, so contact a financial advisor or eldercare legal professionall to find out more about your options and to evaluate what s ideal for your needs.
  2. Reverse Mortgages: For senior couples who may have different care requirements, a reverse mortgage can be a good approach for just one person to move into assisted living while another remains at home while his or her spouse transitions to senior living. A reverse mortgage allows home owners aged 62 or older to borrow against their home equity. For more information, call the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to locate a reverse mortgage counseling agency near you or contact the Illinois Housing Development Authority.
  3. Veterans Benefits: Many seniors may qualify for veterans benefits that they don t recognize. One benefit, in particular, Aid & Attendance, has helped many families afford assisted living. To qualify, veterans must be at least 65 years old and have served at least 90 days of active duty, with at least 1 day during what the Veterans Administration considers active wartime periods. Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans can also be able to receive benefits. With the existing average age of U.S. veterans at 64 years old, it s worthwhile to learn if your family member may qualify for benefits. To find out more on benefits for veterans, see our ‘‚¬”Guide to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care, call the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs or visit

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Community

Finding the right assisted living community is a major decision, both for a senior and for his or her relatives.

Listed below are five points 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 24×7 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 isn’t available, inquire about the waitlist and what the community s policy is for administering it. Many communities will ask for a deposit plus some communities have internal lists for special health care needs. Here is where doing your homework can seriously pay back – plan in advance!
  3. Will there be an outdoor space? For many residents making the transition from a private home 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 certainly important. Many larger assisted living communities offer a range of yard, with features such as BBQ areas, gardens, and taking walks paths for community events.
  4. What’s the staff-to-resident ratio? Will this community offer your cherished one with the support they need? According to 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 make certain to enquire about the features you are interested in.
  5. What services are within the monthly fee? Before signing the contract, it s a good idea to understand what is included in the basic cost structure and what might incur an extra fee. Some communities employ a fee-for-service model, or a la carte pricing, which means they bill a monthly charge for rent and meals but supplemental charges for things such as medication management. Others might use a tiered pricing model where different degrees of service are billed distinct service fees.

What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a community?

With so many choices to choose from, finding the right 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 communities that will be the best fit for his or her care needs, personality, and budget.

Here are a few things to remember during your search:

  • Make sure you look for your loved one, not you. Today s assisted living communities offer everything from homey conditions to upscale resort-style luxury living. It is easy to be swayed by the features and amenities you may decide for yourself, but in the end it comes down to what will function best for your loved one.
  • Focus on the present, not the past. Will your loved one need help bathing and getting dressed? Do they have special requirements like limited vision or special diets? Would they take pleasure in the benefits of a larger community or be more relaxed in a smaller, more intimate environment? Take into account the here and now, not what might have been their choice ten or 15 years ago.
  • Plan to tour at least 3 to 5 communities, when 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 selecting the most appropriate assisted living community is often difficult, but there are solutions which can help. Call A Place for Mom today – we are able to help save you money and time and help you make a good choice.
