Complete guide to assisted living

Assisted Living in Northampton, Massachusetts

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is one type 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 likewise enjoying engaging activities and a solid sense of community. Sometimes, assisted living communities have support for seniors with certain medical requirements 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 usually a stressful decision. To make sure you are selecting the proper level of care, speak with a medical professionall. You may also call our Senior Living Advisors who are ready to answer any of your inquiries and help you select a senior care community that meets your needs.

What Services Are Available?

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

Other amenities often found in assisted living include:

  • Medical services
  • Physical and rehabilitation therapies on-site and off-site
  • Activities and events calendar
  • Exercise and nutrition programs
  • Housekeeping services
  • Medication administration
  • Transportation services

How Do I Tour Assisted Living communities?

It is highly recommended that you tour several assisted living communities before choosing the best one suitable for you or your family member. Touring several communities will help you discover what options can be found, what your own preferences are, and can ultimately assist you in making a decision. Contact or contact A Place for Mom and we will help you organize a tour at your desired community.

Below are a few of the top questions you’ll want to be prepared to ask throughout your tour:

  • Are the current residents friendly and content?
  • Are there services not contained in the monthly price? If so, what are they and how much can they cost?
  • Is a nurse generally available night and day?
  • Is an initial evaluation required before entry?
  • Is there a waitlist? If so, how long might it be before you can move in?
  • Is there a courtyard or patio for people to enjoy space outdoors?
  • What are your unit accommodation choices?
  • What exactly are your billing and monthly payment guidelines 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 team members involved? Nice?
  • What’s your discharge plan?
  • What is your prescription administration plan?
  • What kind of know-how and techniques do your staff possess?

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 important to comprehend what Medicare will pay for and what it will not. If the beneficiary has been in the hospital for at least three days, Medicare will cover short-term skilled nursing care linked to hospitalization for 100 days, if your doctor recommends it.

Medicare has four main 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 different 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 with Medicare Parts A and B can choose to receive all of their health care services, including Part D prescription drugs if a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan (MAPD) is selected, through one of these provider organizations under Part C.
  4. Part D, Prescription Drug Coverage: This helps pay for prescription medications.
  5. Medicare covers medically necessary skilled care at a nursing home only when you will need short-term skilled care for an illness or injury and you meet certain conditions. To learn more about Medicare benefits, download A Place for Mom s Medicare Resource Guide.

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

How Do I Choose the best Assisted Living Community?

Choosing the assisted living community that’s right for you and your family member is definitely one of the most important decisions you can make. Throughout your visit, consider the caliber of attention that a loved one may receive. The decision of if, when and where to move resides solely with you as well as your family, so think about what factors are ultimately important to you. Also you can read through some of the 688 reviews about communities in the greater Northampton area. Here are some facts to consider:

  • Activities: It s a good idea to try to schedule your tour together with community events. Ask the manager when you can check out the activities and even participate. Are the activities and events well attended? Does the staff seem to be having fun with the experience as well? Take a look at the community calendar of events. Do they meet 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 is important to you and your family, Don’t forget to ask about faith based services.
  • Cleanliness: Will the community feel clean and fresh? Be sure to look beyond furniture and into baseboards, crevices, and windows. Ask how frequently housekeeping is included in the personal 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. Gather specifics on what is available and at what expense.
  • Friendliness: The frame of mind and friendliness of the personnel are of the most importance. Ensure that you observe different workers interacting with current occupants. Do they pay attention and make eye contact? Ensure that you acquire a good knowledge of the staffing routine. How many people are actually involved in residents care? Ensure you obtain an introduction to the management group. This can help you understand the goals of the community. It is important that you trust the property s personnel.
  • Meals: Much like the majority of us, the dining area experience is vital to seniors. When touring communities, it is important to discuss entree choices and learn about dining hours, options, and procedures. Be sure you and your family member try a meal at community. Not only is it a terrific way to sample the cuisine, but it s a great opportunity to meet other residents. Make sure you discuss what goes on if a resident cannot make it to the dining area for meals.
  • Reputation: Ask people and family members, past and present, for his or her honest views about the community. Many communities have a resident council which will be happy to answer any of your questions.
  • Security and safety: Safety and security features are incredibly important and offer assurance for the caregiver. Ensure that bathrooms are easy to get to and also have grab bars in convenient spots. Ask how residents contact the staff if they have a crisis within their living area. Learn about other safety features available in living quarters and through the entire community. Make sure you find out about staffing patterns to determine who’s on-site consistently to aid residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing routines differ during the night? How does the community assist or manage residents medication needs?
  • Trust your gut: When you are visiting, make sure you think about yourself or your family member actually living at community. Can you imagine your family member feeling contented? Do you feel at ease? Are the staff and residents open, welcoming and friendly?

How to Finance Assisted Living

Many families experience sticker shock when starting their hunt for senior living. How exactly to finance senior care can be an obstacle for care. Many families fund a move to assisted living through the sale of a residence or personal savings, but for some persons, this may not be an option.

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

  1. Life Insurance Policies: If the senior getting into assisted living has a life insurance policy, you could be in a position to liquidate the policy and receive funds now to cover senior care costs. Different constraints and regulations apply according to the kind of coverage you have, so call a monetary advisor or eldercare lawyer to learn more about your options.
  2. Reverse Mortgages: For senior couples who may have different care requirements, a reverse mortgage could be a good way for just one person to move into assisted living while another remains in the home. A reverse mortgage allows property owners aged 62 or older to borrow against their home equity. To find out more, get in touch with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to look for a reverse mortgage counseling agency in your area 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 a large number of 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 one 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 existing average age of U.S. veterans at 64 years old, it s worth it to determine if your family member may qualify for benefits.

Five Questions to Ask When Touring an Assisted Living community

There s no question that choosing an assisted living community is often overwhelming. However, considering these five essential things when considering making the move to assisted living can help you make a better-educated decision:

  1. How many staff are on hand to assist at night? Some assisted living communities provide nursing staff night and day, while others may have more generalized help available after hours. It is not required that night and day care be offered 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 fast. If the main one you like isn’t available, enquire about the waitlist and what the community s guideline 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 will not mean you or your loved one needs to surrender a beloved yard or patio space. If accessing a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is definitely very important to your loved one, search for a community that provides residents that space. Many larger assisted living communities give a range of outdoor spaces, with features such as walking paths, gardens and BBQ places for community events.
  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 associate for each 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely depending on the size of the community, so make certain to ask about the communities you would like. Ultimately, you want to find out if this community will supply your family member with the help and support they want?
  5. What services are as part of the monthly rate? Understand what is going to be included in the basic fee structure and what might incur additional expense before signing any contract. Some communities use a fee-for-service model, or a la carte prices, which means they charge a monthly fee for rent and meals but additional charges for things such as medication management. Others could use a tiered pricing model where different levels of services are charged different costs. Eldercare lawyers can review these contracts and assist you to with any discrepancies.

What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a Community?

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

Here are a few things to bear in mind during your search:

  • Focus on current circumstances. What will your loved one need today? Do they need support bathing and dressing? Do they have special needs like limited ability to see or special diets? Take into account the here and now, not what may have been their decision ten or 15 years back.
  • When possible, tour at least three communities. Focus on scheduled tours and consider having a meal with the residents. If none of them seem like a good fit, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more options and Don’t hesitate to ask questions and take notes while you re there.
  • Look at community through your loved one s lens – not your own. It could be easy to end up being swayed by the amenities and features you might decide for yourself, but eventually it comes down to what will work best for your loved one. Would they benefit from the benefits of a larger community or be more comfortable in a small, more intimate environment?

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

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