Assisted Living in Newton, Massachusetts

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is one kind of senior care that provides residents support with activities of daily living (ADLs). Residents in assisted living should expect to receive support with ADLs that involve bathing, dressing, medication management, meals and more. Not to be confused with a skilled nursing community where residents receive nursing services night and day, residents in assisted living typically have access to personnel 24 hours per day while additionally enjoying engaging activities and a solid sense of community. Sometimes, assisted living communities provide support for seniors with certain medical needs such as cognitive impairment from Alzheimer s disease or a related form of dementia, diabetes, or incontinence care.

Deciding which kind of senior care you or your family member needs is a challenging decision. To be certain you are choosing the right level of care, consult with a medical professionall. You may also call our Senior Living Advisors who are ready to answer any of your questions and help you choose a senior care community that meets your preferences.

What Services Are Available?

Amenities and solutions offered in assisted living may differ greatly in each community. Generally, most communities provide a range of accommodation types, meal plans, transportation, and more.

Other services often found in assisted living include:

  • Medical services
  • Physical and rehabilitation therapies on-site and off-site
  • Activities and entertainment calendar
  • Fitness and nutrition courses
  • Housekeeping services
  • Medication management
  • Transportation services

How Do I Tour Assisted Living communities?

It is highly recommended that you tour multiple assisted living communities before finding the right one suitable for you or your loved one. Touring multiple communities will help you discover what options are available, what your own preferences are, and will ultimately assist you in making a decision. Contact or contact A Place for Mom and we will help you set up a tour at your desired community.

Here are some of the top questions you’ll want to be ready to ask throughout your tour:

  • Are the current people friendly and cheerful?
  • Are there any services not included in the monthly rate? If so, what exactly are they and how much do they cost?
  • Is a nurse generally available around the clock?
  • Is an initial assessment required before admission?
  • Is there a waitlist? If so, how long will it be before you can move in?
  • Will there be a courtyard or patio for people to enjoy space outdoors?
  • What are your apartment accommodation alternatives?
  • What are your billing and monthly payment policies and procedures?
  • What does the exterior of the community look like? Is it clean and nice looking?
  • What is the staff-to-resident ratio? Are the team members involved? Friendly?
  • What’s your discharge plan?
  • What’s your prescription administration policy?
  • What kind of knowledge and schooling do your team members have?

Will Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

As 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 can play an important role in paying for some senior care.

But, it is vital to understand what Medicare can pay for and what it does not. If the beneficiary has been in the hospital for at least three days, Medicare will cover short-term skilled nursing care related to hospitalization for up to 100 days, if your doctor recommends it.

Medicare has four primary parts:

  1. Part A, Hospital Insurance: This helps pay for inpatient care in a hospital or skilled nursing community (following a hospital stay), home health care and hospice care.
  2. Part B, Medical Insurance: This can help pay for services provided by doctors and other healthcare providers, outpatient care, many preventive care services, durable medical equipment, plus some home health care expenses.
  3. Part C, Medicare Advantage: These plans are available in many areas. People who have Medicare Parts A and B can want to receive all their health care services, including Part D prescription drugs if a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan (MAPD) is selected, through among these provider organizations under Part C.
  4. Part D, Prescription Drug Coverage: This can help pay for prescription drugs.
  5. Medicare covers medically necessary skilled care at a nursing home only when you will need short-term skilled care for an illness or personal injury and you meet certain conditions. To learn more about Medicare benefits, download A Place for Mom s Medicare Resource Guide.

How Can I See Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Massachusetts?

The state of Massachusetts offers great usage of its assisted living community data through it’s Executive Office of Elder Affairs website. Available data includes licensed assisted living communities that are updated frequently, and details about assisted living licensing and violations.

In the state of Massachusetts, assisted living communities are required for legal reasons to:

  • Provide adequate staff to care for residents, but aren’t required to have a nurse on staff 24 hours per day
  • Provide assistance and supervision with bathing, dressing, and mobility to all residents which have these activities within their service plan
  • Provide each resident with a written service plan that includes a doctor s assessment and evaluation

How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living community?

Choosing the assisted living community that’s right for you as well as your loved one is certainly one of the most important decisions you may make. During your visit, consider the quality of care that a family member may receive. The decision of if, when and where to move resides exclusively with you and your family, so think about what factors are ultimately important to you. You may also read through a few of the 170 reviews about communities in the greater Newton area. Here are some things to consider:

  • Activities: It s smart to try to schedule your tour in conjunction with community events. Ask the manager if you can watch the activities and even participate. Are the activities and get-togethers well attended? Will the staff seem to be having fun with the experience as well? Have a look at the community calendar of get-togethers. Do they match your loved one s hobbies? Do the activities and get-togethers vary in size and type? Do they incorporate outings and trips away from the community? If it’s important to your household, Don’t forget to ask about religious services.
  • Cleanliness: Will the community feel tidy and fresh? Ensure that you look beyond furnishings and into baseboards, corners, and windows. Ask how often housekeeping is provided in the non-public living space. Be sure you get total information on the types of maintenance provided and the estimated response times. Don’t forget to ask about laundry procedures. Obtain specifics on what’s available and at what cost.
  • Friendliness: The frame of mind and friendliness of the staff are of the utmost importance. Ensure that you observe countless staff members interacting with current occupants. Do they listen and make eye contact? Be sure to obtain a good understanding of the staffing structure. Just how many people are actually involved with residents care? Be sure to obtain an introduction to the management team. This can help you understand the goals of the facility. It’s important that you trust the property s personnel.
  • Meals: Much like most of us, the dining area experience is important to seniors. When touring communities, it is essential to discuss entree choices and learn about dining hours, options, and procedures. Be sure you and your loved one enjoy a meal at community. Not only is it a terrific way to sample the cuisine, but it s a great chance to meet other people. Make sure you discuss what goes on if a resident is not able to make it to the dining room for meals.
  • Reputation: Ask residents and families, past and present, for their honest views about the community. Various communities have a resident council that’ll be happy to answer any of your questions.
  • Security and safety: Security and safety features are very important and offer assurance for the caregiver. Make sure that bathrooms are accessible and have grab bars in convenient locations. Ask how residents contact the staff if they have an emergency within their living area. Find out about other protection features available in living quarters and through the entire community. Be sure you learn about staffing patterns to determine who is on-site usually to aid residents. Is there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing routines differ during the night? How does community assist or manage residents medication needs?
  • Trust your gut: As you are touring, be sure you think about yourself or your family member actually living at community. Can you imagine your family member feeling comfortable? Do you feel at ease? Are the staff and residents receptive, inviting and friendly?

How to Pay for Assisted Living

Many families experience sticker shock when beginning their hunt for senior living. How exactly to pay for senior care is definitely an obstacle for care. Many families pay for a move to assisted living through the sale of a home or personal savings, but for some people, this might not exactly be a choice.

Listed below are three other options that will assist you finance assisted living:

  1. Life Insurance Policies: If the senior moving into assisted living has a life insurance policy, you may be in a position to liquidate the policy and receive funds right now to cover senior care costs. Different constraints and regulations apply depending on the kind of insurance policy you have, so get in touch with a monetary advisor or eldercare attorney to discover more about your options.
  2. Reverse Mortgages: For senior couples who may have different care needs, a reverse mortgage could be a good way for one person to move into assisted living while another remains at home. A reverse mortgage allows homeowners aged 62 or older to borrow against their home equity. To find out more, call the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to locate a reverse mortgage counseling agency near you or contact the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.
  3. Veterans Benefits: Various veterans are unaware that they are eligible for senior care benefits. The Veterans Aid and Attendance benefit has helped many families afford assisted living. To qualify, veterans must be at least 65 years old and have served at least 3 months of active duty, with at least 1 day during what the Veterans Administration considers ‘‚¬Ëœactive wartime periods . Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans may also be able to receive benefits. With the current average age of U.S. veterans at 64 years old, it s worth it to discover if your family member may be eligible for benefits. To find out more on benefits for veterans, see call the Massachusetts Department of Veterans Affairs or visit www.va.gov.

Five Questions to Ask When Touring an Assisted Living Community

There s no question that choosing an assisted living community is often overwhelming. But, considering these five important things when thinking about making the move to assisted living will help you make a better-informed decision:

  1. How many staff are available to assist at night? Some assisted living communities provide nursing staff night and day, while others may have more generalized help on hand after hours. It is not required that night and day care be given in assisted living in Massachusetts.
  2. Is there a waitlist? Here’s where doing all your homework can really pay off – plan ahead! Sought after communities can fill up fast. If the main one you like is not available, ask about the waitlist and what the community s guideline is for managing it. Many communities will require a deposit and some communities have internal lists for special care needs.
  3. Will there be a patio space? Moving to assisted living will not mean you or your loved one needs to give up a beloved garden or patio space. If accessing a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is definitely important for your loved one, search for a community which offers residents that space. Various larger assisted living communities offer a range of outdoor spaces, with features such as walking paths, gardens and BBQ places for community occasions.
  4. What’s the staff-to-resident ratio? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living communities have a ratio of 1 personal care assistant for every 23 residents. Staffing can vary widely depending on the size of the community, so make sure to ask about the communities you are looking for. Ultimately, you want to understand if this community will give you your loved one with the support they want?
  5. What services are included in the monthly service charge? Understand what is included in the basic fee arrangement and what might incur additional expense before signing any agreement. Some communities employ a fee-for-service model, or a la carte pricing, which means they charge a monthly cost for rent and meals but additional costs for things such as medication management. Others could use a tiered cost model where different levels of services are charged different charges. Eldercare lawyers can review these agreements and assist you to with any discrepancies.

Below are a few things to take into account during your search:

  • Focus on current necessities. What does your family member need today? Do they need support bathing and dressing? Do they have special circumstances like limited vision or special diets? Think about the here and now, not what might have been their decision ten or 15 years ago.
  • When possible, tour at least three communities. Start with planned tours and consider having meals with the residents. If none seem like a good match, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more options and Don’t hesitate to ask questions and take down notes while you re there.
  • Look at community through your family member s eyes – instead of your own. It could be easy to become swayed by the services and features you might decide for yourself, but in the end it comes down to what will work best for your loved one. Would they enjoy the benefits of a bigger community or be more comfortable in a small, more intimate environment?

The process of selecting the right assisted living community can be overwhelming, but we are here to help you navigate your senior care search.
