What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a Facility?

Assisted Living in Methuen, 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 confused with a skilled nursing facility where people receive nursing services around the clock, residents in assisted living routinely have access to personnel 24 hours per day while likewise enjoying engaging activities and a solid sense of community. Occasionally, assisted living facilities have support for seniors with particular medical needs 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 family member needs is usually a complicated decision. To be sure you are choosing the proper level of care, consult with a medical professional. You can also call our Senior Living Advisors who are standing by to answer any of your queries and help you choose a senior care facility that meets your needs.

What Services Are Available?

Amenities and assistance offered in assisted living can vary greatly in each facility. Generally, most facilities give you a range of accommodation types, meal plans, transportation, and more.

Other features often found in assisted living include:

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 crucial 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 covers short-term skilled nursing care linked to hospitalization for 100 days, if your physician 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 facility (following a hospital stay), home health care and hospice care.
  2. Part B, Medical Insurance:This helps pay for services supplied by doctors and additional 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 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 injury and you meet certain conditions. To find out about Medicare benefits, download A Place for Mom’sMedicare Resource Guide.

How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living Facility?

Choosing the assisted living facility that is right for you as well as your family member can be one of the most important decisions you may make. During your visit, consider the caliber of care that a family member may receive. The decision of “if, when and where to move” resides exclusively with you as well as your family, so think about what factors are actually important to you. You may also read through a few of the 695 reviews about facilities in the greater Methuen area. Here are some things to consider:

  • Activities:It’s a good idea to try and schedule your tour together with facility events. Ask the manager when you can see the activities or even participate. Are the activities and get-togethers well attended? Does the staff seem to be having fun with the experience as well? Take a look at the facility calendar of events. Do they match your loved one’s likes and dislikes? Do the activities and get-togethers vary in size and type? Do they include outings and trips away from the community? If it's important to you and your family, don’t forget to inquire about faith based services.
  • Cleanliness:Will the community feel orderly and fresh? Make sure to look past the furnishings and into baseboards, crevices, and windows. Ask how frequently housekeeping is included in the non-public living space. Be sure you get complete information on the types of maintenance provided and the anticipated response times. Don’t forget to ask about laundry procedures. Gather specifics on what is obtainable and at what cost.
  • Friendliness:The frame of mind and friendliness of the staff are of the utmost importance. Ensure that you observe countless workers interacting with current residents. Do they pay attention and make eye contact? Make sure to obtain a good knowledge of the staffing routine. How many people are actually involved with residents’ care? Be sure you get an introduction to the management team. This will help you understand the goals of the facililty. It is important that you trust the property’s personnel.
  • Meals:Much like almost all of us, the dining area experience is important to seniors. When visiting facilities, it is necessary to go over entree choices and find out about dining hours, choices, and procedures. Be sure you and your family member enjoy a meal at community. It's not only the best way to sample the cuisine, but it’s a great possibility to meet other residents. Be sure to discuss what goes on if a resident cannot make it to the dining area for meals.
  • Reputation:Ask residents and family members, past and present, for his or her honest views about the facility. Various facilities have a resident council that will be happy to answer any of your questions.
  • Safety and security:Safety and security features are incredibly important and offer peace of mind for the caregiver. Ensure that bathrooms are accessible and have grab bars in convenient locations. Ask how residents get in touch with the staff if they have an emergency within their living area. Learn about other protection features available in living quarters and throughout the facility. Be sure you find out about staffing routines to determine who is on-site consistently to aid residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing routines differ during the night? How does facility assist or manage residents’ medication needs?
  • Trust your gut:When you are touring, make sure you consider yourself or your loved one actually living at facility. Can you imagine your family member feeling contented? Do you feel at ease? Are the staff and residents receptive, welcoming and friendly?

Five Questions to Ask When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

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

  1. How many team members are on hand to assist during the night?Some assisted living communities provide nursing staff around the clock, while others may have more generalized help available after hours. It is not required that night and day care be included in assisted living in Massachusetts.
  2. Will there be a waitlist?Here's where doing your homework can really pay off - plan ahead of time! Sought after facilities can fill up fast. If the main one you like isn't available, enquire about the waitlist and what the community’s plan is for handling it. Many communities will ask for a deposit and some facilities 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 surrender a beloved backyard or patio space. If accessing a gardening area, a patio or a courtyard is definitely very important to your loved one, visit a community which offers residents that space. Many larger assisted living facilities give a range of yards, with features such as walking paths, gardens and BBQ spaces for community activities.
  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 one personal care associate for each 23 residents. Staffing can vary widely depending on the size of the community, so be certain to ask about the communities you would like. Ultimately, you want to know if this community will supply your loved one with the support they want?
  5. What services are as part of the monthly service charge?Understand what is going to be included in the basic fee arrangement and what might incur additional expense before signing any deal. Some facilities use a fee-for-service model, or a la carte prices, which means they bill a monthly payment for rent and meals but additional charges for things like medication management. Others might use a tiered pricing model where different levels of services are charged different costs. Eldercare attorneys can review these contracts and help you with any discrepancies.
