Assisted Living

An assisted living community is a residential community which administers assistance, care, and support to self-sufficient individuals who do not need skilled nursing care. Assisted living communities often offer aid with transit and appointments, help with the activities of daily life, and care supervision. In some situations, communities may provide dementia care, hospice, or continuing care. In Indiana, the annual median cost for an assisted living community is around 49,200. Indiana has a number of provisions associated with this type of community. Indiana State Department of Health governs this type of community. This type of community is required to offer a number of services. These include scheduled transportation for community-based activities, identifying responses to actual or potential health conditions, activities and programs appropriate to residents' abilities and interests, and executing a minor regimen based upon a nursing diagnosis or as prescribed by a physician, physician's assistant, chiropractor, dentist, optometrist, podiatrist, or nurse practitioner. This community type has a number of provisions pertaining to medication assistance. These provisions include distribution of prescribed medications, Medications may be administered under physician's order by licensed nursing personnel or qualified medication aides, and resident must be observed for effects of medications and undesirable effects must be documented and the resident's physician notified. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to ensure their needs are going to be met.
