Assisted Living

Assisted living communities provide a sense of community as well as personalized help. Assisted living communities commonly provide care supervision, assistance with transit and appointments, and support with the activities of daily life. Under certain circumstances, communities may provide respite, nursing, or "aging in place". In Massachusetts, the annual median cost for an assisted living community is around $67,680 . Massachusetts maintains a number of stipulations related to this kind of community. The Executive Office of Elder Affairs licenses this community type. This type of community is required to offer a number of services. These include management of self-administered prescription or over-the-counter medications, timely assistance with urgent or emergency needs, assistance with instrumental activities of daily living, and assistance with activities of daily living . This community type has a number of provisions pertaining to medication assistance. These provisions include observing residents while they take the medication, reading the medication label to residents, and opening containers and pre-packaged medications. Public assistance is available through Medicaid 1915(c) Waiver program. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to make sure their needs are going to be met. This screening includes a number of areas of interest such as assessment of allergies and dietary needs, assessment of residents ability to manage medications, a comprehensive mental and physical assessment, and assessment of residents need for assistance in emergency situations. Staff members obtain training in a number of fields. These areas include Review of the aging process, 7-hour general orientation , Resident health, and elder abuse and neglect.
