Assisted Living in Barnstable, Massachusetts

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is one kind of senior care that delivers residents support with activities of daily living (ADLs). Residents in assisted living should expect to get support with ADLs that include bathing, dressing, medication management, meals and more. Not to be mixed up with a skilled nursing community where occupants receive nursing services around the clock, residents in assisted living routinely have access to personnel 24 hours a day while also enjoying engaging activities and a strong sense of community. Occasionally, assisted living communities provide support for seniors with specific medical requirements such as cognitive impairment from Alzheimer s disease or a related kind of dementia, diabetes, or incontinence care.

Deciding which kind of senior care you or your loved one needs can be a challenging decision. To make sure you are choosing the proper level of care, consult with a medical professionall. You can also call our Senior Living Advisors who are standing by to answer any of your questions and help you discover a senior care community that meets your needs.

What Services Are Available?

Amenities and services offered in assisted living may differ greatly in each community. Generally, most communities provide a variety of accommodation styles, 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
  • Exercise and nutrition programs
  • Housekeeping services
  • Medication administration
  • Transportation services

How can I Tour Assisted Living communities?

It is strongly suggested 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 choices are, and will ultimately help you make a decision. Contact or contact A Place for Mom and we will help you organize a tour at your desired community.

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

  • Are the current residents friendly and cheerful?
  • Are there services not included in the monthly price? If so, what are they and exactly how much can they cost?
  • Is a nurse usually available around the clock?
  • Is an initial assessment required before admission?
  • Is there a waitlist? If so, how long might it be before you can move in?
  • Will there be a courtyard or patio for people to enjoy space outside?
  • What are your unit accommodation alternatives?
  • What exactly are your billing and payment policies and procedures?
  • What does the outside of the community look like? Is it neat and in good appearance?
  • What’s the staff-to-resident ratio? Are the staff engaged? Nice?
  • What’s your discharge policy?
  • What is your prescription administration guideline?
  • What sort of knowledge and techniques 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 essential role in paying for some senior care.

But, it is necessary to comprehend what Medicare will 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 main parts:

  1. Part A, Hospital Insurance: This can help 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 supplied by doctors and various 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 can be found in many areas. People who have Medicare Parts A and B can choose to receive all of their healthcare 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 find out more on Medicare benefits, download A Place for Mom s Medicare Resource Guide.

  • Provide each resident with a written service plan which includes a doctor s evaluation and evaluation

How Do I Choose the best Assisted Living community?

Choosing the assisted living community that is right for you as well as your family member can be one of the most crucial decisions you may make. Throughout your visit, consider the caliber of attention that a family member may receive. Your choice of if, when and where to move resides solely with you and your family, so consider what factors are ultimately important to you. Also you can read through some of the 256 testimonials about communities in the greater Barnstable region. Here are some things to consider:

  • Activities: It s a good idea to try to schedule your tour together with community events. Ask the manager when you can see the activities and even participate. Are the activities and get-togethers well attended? Does the staff appear to be appreciating the activity as well? Take a look at the community calendar of events. Do they meet your loved one s interests? Do the activities and occasions vary in size and type? Do they include outings and trips 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 orderly and fresh? Make sure to look beyond furnishings and into baseboards, corners, and windows. Ask how frequently housekeeping is offered in the non-public living space. Be sure you get full details on the types of maintenance provided and the anticipated response times. Don’t forget to enquire about laundry procedures. Obtain specifics on what is obtainable and at what price.
  • Friendliness: The frame of mind and friendliness of the personnel are of the most importance. Ensure that you observe countless staff members interacting with current occupants. Do they listen and make eye contact? Ensure that you get a good knowledge of the staffing routine. Just how many people are actually involved with residents care? Be sure to obtain an introduction to the management team. This will help you understand the goals of the community. It is important that you have confidence in the property s personnel.
  • Meals: Much like the majority of us, the dining room experience is very important to seniors. When going to communities, it is essential to discuss entree choices and find out about dining hours, options, and procedures. Make sure you and your loved one enjoy a meal at community. Not only is it the best way to sample the cuisine, but it s a great possibility to meet other people. Be sure to discuss what goes on if a resident is unable to make it to the dining room for a meal.
  • Reputation: Ask residents and families, past and present, for their honest thoughts 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 extremely important and offer reassurance for the caregiver. Ensure that bathrooms are easy to get to and have grab bars in convenient places. Ask how residents contact the staff if they have an emergency in their living area. Learn about other security features available in living quarters and through the entire community. Be sure you learn about staffing structures to determine who’s on-site consistently to aid residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing patterns differ during the night? How does the community assist or manage people medication requirements?
  • Trust your gut: As you are visiting, make 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 Finance Assisted Living

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

Here are three other options that may help you pay for assisted living:

  1. Life Insurance Policies: If the senior getting into assisted living has a life insurance policy, you may be in a position to liquidate the policy and receive funds today to cover senior care costs. Different limitations and regulations apply depending on the kind of insurance policy you have, so call a financial advisor or eldercare legal professionall to find out more about your options.
  2. Reverse Mortgages: For senior couples who may have different care needs, a reverse mortgage can be a good way for one person to go into assisted living while another remains in the home. A reverse mortgage allows property owners aged 62 or older to borrow on their home equity. To find out more, contact the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to look for a reverse mortgage counseling agency near you or contact the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.
  3. Veterans Benefits: Many veterans are unaware they are eligible for senior care benefits. The Veterans Aid and Attendance benefit has helped numerous 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 one day during what the Veterans Administration considers ‘‚¬Ëœactive 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 worth it to find out if your family member may qualify for benefits. To find out about benefits for veterans, see call the Massachusetts Department of Veterans Affairs or visit

Five Questions to Ask When Touring an Assisted Living Community

There s no question that choosing an assisted living community can be overwhelming. However, considering these five things when considering 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 personnel around the clock, while others may have more generalized help available after hours. It isn’t required that night and day care be included in assisted living in Massachusetts.
  2. Will there be a waitlist? Here is where doing your homework can really pay off – plan in advance! Sought after communities can fill up fast. If the one you like isn’t available, enquire about the waitlist and what the community s policy is for administering it. Many communities will require a deposit and some communities have internal lists for special care needs.
  3. Will there be an outdoor space? Going to assisted living does not mean you or your loved one needs to live without a beloved yard or patio space. If accessing a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is definitely important for your loved one, visit a community that provides residents that space. Various larger assisted living communities offer a range of yards, with features such as walking paths, gardens and BBQ areas for community get-togethers.
  4. What is 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 associate for every 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely depending on the size of the community, so make certain to enquire about the communities you are looking for. Ultimately, you want to know if this community can provide your family member with the support they need?
  5. What services are included in the monthly price? Understand what is normally included in the basic fee arrangement and what might incur additional expense before signing any contract. Some communities employ a fee-for-service model, or a la carte prices, which means they charge a monthly cost for rent and meals but additional charges for things such as medication management. Others may use a tiered cost model where different degrees of health care are charged different fees. Eldercare lawyers can review these contracts and help you with any discrepancies.

What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a community?

There s no shortage of senior care options in Barnstable – which is why we have Senior Living Advisors ready to help. They are experts in helping match seniors to the communities that will be the best fit for his or her budget, care requirements, and personality.

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

  • Concentrate on current needs. What does your family member need right now? Do they need support bathing and dressing? Do they have special needs like limited vision or special diets? Take into account the here and today, not what may have been their choice ten or 15 years ago.
  • If possible, tour at least three communities. Focus on planned tours and consider having meals with the residents. If none of them seem like a good match, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more alternatives and Don’t hesitate to ask questions and take down notes while you re there.
  • View the community through your family member s eyes – instead of your own. It is easy to become swayed by the features and features you might choose 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 larger community or be more comfortable in a smaller, more intimate setting?

The process of deciding on the best assisted living community can be overwhelming, but we are here to help you understand your senior care search.

Call A Place for Mom today – we can help relieve your stress and anxiety while saving you money and time, ultimately finding a place that meets your budget and care requirements.
