Assisted Living in Annapolis, MD

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is an ideal solution for seniors who require long-term assistance with personal care and daily needs that include household tasks, laundry, getting in and out of bed, bathing, medication management and transportation. Many assisted living centers also offer residents a variety of amenities, such as fitness programs and social activities to help them maintain their mobility, independence and quality of life.

About Senior Living in Annapolis, MD

Annapolis is the fifth most populated city in Maryland. The state capital is nestled between Chesapeake Bay and the Severn River. Known as the home for the country’s Naval Academy and historic battle grounds that were once graced by some of the nation’s founding fathers, seniors enjoy the relaxing, scenic views of the area. Assisted living in Annapolis, MD offers seniors a peaceful and low-stress environment that is full of local activities for an active and happy lifestyle.

What Services Are Available?

No two assisted living communities offer the same services. Assisted living centers in our network offer services such as daily meals and snacks, onsite activities for fitness, wellness, and socialization, around-the-clock care caregivers, privacy, security, assistance with bathing, toileting and dressing, medication management, and outings.

Many communities also offer amenities to make assisted living more enjoyable, such as onsite beauticians, visiting medical staff, devotional services, respite and memory care, wheelchair accessible rooms and showers, on-call doctors, air conditioning and climate control, apartment style units, field trips, and free Wi-Fi.

What Is Assisted Living Like?

Assisted living is a bit different than living at home. Though seniors live in a community with others who have care and support needs, the environment is safe, pleasant, comfortable and home-like. As you start your search for the right assisted living home for your relative, consider the following:

Variety of Communities and Care Services – Each community is different and unique. They come in all sizes and provide varying levels of care. As aging occurs, some seniors may require a higher level of care than others. No matter what your loved one’s needs are, there are assisted living facilities in Annapolis that can accommodate.

Each Community Is as Unique as a Fingerprint – The average assisted living facility houses a specific number of seniors. Some communities provide shared rooms while others provide single rooms/apartments for seniors to live in. Smaller communities offer fewer amenities than larger, more luxurious options. Each environment offers services that enable seniors to maintain their independence and mobility for as long as possible without sacrificing their health, safety, and standard of living. They are also structured to facilitate family and community involvement.

Pets and Couples Are Welcome – Some senior living communities have policies for couples and pets that allow them to remain together. These living accommodations often cost more but include a larger or double occupancy space. Residents who want to bring their pets must participate in pet interviews and comply with pet breed and weight restrictions.

How to Tour Assisted Living Facilities?

Touring assisted living facilities is an experience that seniors and their adult children often enjoy together. It is an invaluable aspect of the screening process that can help you narrow down your options as you contemplate one of the most important decisions of you and your loved one’s life. When preparing to tour an assisted living facility, prepare a list of questions and concerns to inquire about during your visit. As you formulate your questions, keep these key considerations in mind:

  • Staff and resident interaction: Ideally, you should schedule your tour during a time an activity is taking place so you can observe residents, staff and how the place is managed. This also provides the opportunity for you to pay attention to how the residents and staff interact with each other. Speak with some of the seniors and staff to determine how well they respect and care for each other. Staff and resident interactions are key indicators of the quality of care provided.
  • Cleanliness of the facility and property grounds: Observe the living areas and property grounds for cleanliness. Take into consideration the layout, furnishings, living and common areas and what the procedures are for maintaining a safe, clean and happy environment for residents. Some residential care communities offer additional household and living amenities for an extra fee. Inquire what the procedures are for maintenance and safety.
  • Visitation policy: Residential care communities have a reasonable open-door policy that allows residents to have visitors over at most times. There are times when visiting hours may be limited, but you should check with each facility to learn what their specific visitation rules and times are.
  • Complaint and safety policies: Periodically, concerns may come up where a resident or their family member may feel the need to complain about a safety issue or some other matter. Problems are not always avoidable, and when they occur, assisted living facilities should have a transparent problem resolution process that encourages residents, staff and family members to voice their concerns without fear.
Your love one's care needs may also change while in assisted living care and keeping the lines of communication open helps to make all transitions as seamless as possible.

What Are ADLs and IADLs?

During your search for assisted living, you may come across some common terms in the senior living community. Here is a brief overview of their meanings to help you understand how they are used.

ADLs are functional skills, also commonly referred to as Activities of Daily Living to help assess the care and support needs of an individual. These can be narrowed down further into BADLs (Basic Activities of Daily Living) including the following:

  • Mobility (functional) is the ability to transfer oneself from area, such as a chair or bed to another via walking, with or without the use of mobility aids and assistance.
  • Bathing and grooming refer to the ability to clean one’s body, teeth and gums and hair, with or without assistance.
  • Continence involves the ability to completely or partially control urinary and bowel function.
  • Toileting is the ability to use the toilet and perform associated personal tasks with or without assistance; this includes the ability to get on and off the apparatus.
  • Feeding is the ability to chew, swallow and transfer food from plate to mouth.
  • Dressing is the ability independently choose suitable clothing, put it on and fasten correctly.

IADLs (Instrumental Activities of Daily Living) are a set of complex functional skills that are essential for independent living. They include money management, medication management, household and laundry tasks, meal preparation, use communication devices and the ability to get to and from different places outside of the home via transportation.

Both types of daily living function criteria are used to assess the physical and mental condition of seniors. Some issues are not immediately obvious. Some signs of mental and physical decline take time. Declines in either area can indicate physical and mental changes that may impair one’s ability to continue living independently or without assistance.
