What Else Should I Consider When Choosing a Community?

Assisted Living in Tewksbury, 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 get support with ADLs that involve bathing, dressing, medication management, meals and more. Not to be confused with a skilled nursing community where occupants receive nursing services night and day, residents in assisted living routinely have access to personnel 24 hours per day while likewise enjoying engaging activities and a solid sense of community. Sometimes, assisted living communities offer support for seniors with specific medical requirements such as for example cognitive impairment from Alzheimer’s disease or a related kind of dementia, diabetes, or incontinence care.

Deciding what type of senior care you or your family member needs can be a complicated decision. To be certain you are deciding on the proper level of care, speak with a medical professional. You may also call our Senior Living Advisors who are ready to answer all of your inquiries and help you select a senior care facility that meets your needs.

What Services Are Available?

Amenities and assistance offered in assisted living can vary greatly in each community. Generally, most communities give a variety of housing types, meal plans, transportation, and more.

Other features often found in assisted living include:

  • Medical services
  • Physical and rehabilitation therapies on-site and off-site
  • Activities and events calendar
  • Fitness and nutrition courses
  • Housekeeping assistance
  • Medication administration
  • Transportation services

How Do I Tour Assisted Living Communities?

It is strongly suggested that you tour multiple assisted living facilities before choosing the best one for you or your loved one. Touring several communities will help you discover what options can be found, what your own choices are, and can ultimately help you make a decision. Contact or contact A Place for Mom and we will help you setup a tour at your preferred community.

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

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 a significant role in paying for some senior care.

But, it is important to understand 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 related to hospitalization for up to 100 days, if your physician recommends it.

Medicare has four primary parts:

  1. Part A, Hospital Insurance: This helps 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 can help pay for services supplied 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 can be found 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 medications.
  5. Medicare covers medically necessary skilled care at a nursing home only if 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.

  • Activities: It’s smart to try to schedule your tour in conjunction with community events. Ask the manager when you can watch the activities as well as participate. Are the activities and events well attended? Does the staff seem to be enjoying the experience as well? Check out the community calendar of get-togethers. Do they match your loved one’s likes and dislikes? Do the activities and events vary in size and type? Do they include outings and trips from the community? If it's important to your household, don’t forget to inquire about religious services.
  • Cleanliness: Does the facility feel clean and fresh? Be sure to look past the furniture and into baseboards, corners, and windows. Ask how often housekeeping is included in the personal living space. Be sure to get complete details on the types of repair provided and the estimated response times. Don’t forget to enquire about laundry procedures. Request specifics on what is available 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 residents. Do they listen and make eye contact? Be sure to receive a good understanding of the staffing pattern. How many people are actually involved in residents’ care? Ensure you get an introduction to the management group. This can help you understand the goals of the community. It's important that you trust the property’s staff.
  • Meals: As with the majority of us, the dining room experience is important to seniors. When touring facilities, it's important to discuss entree choices and learn about dining hours, options, and procedures. Be sure you and your family member have a meal at facility. It's not only a terrific way to sample the cuisine, but it’s an excellent possibility to meet other residents. Make sure you discuss what goes on if a resident is unable to make it to the dining area for meals.
  • Reputation: Ask people and family members, past and present, for his or her honest thoughts about the community. Various communities include a resident council which will be happy to answer all of your questions.
  • Safety and security: Safety and security features are extremely important and offer assurance for the caregiver. Ensure that bathrooms are easy to get to and have grab bars in convenient locations. Ask how residents get in touch with the staff if they have an emergency in their living area. Learn about other basic safety features available in living quarters and through the entire facility. Make sure you find out about staffing structures to determine who is on-site consistently to help residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing routines differ at night? How does facility assist or manage people’ medication requests?
  • Trust your gut: When you are touring, be sure you think about yourself or your loved one actually living at facility. Can you imagine your family member feeling happy? Do you feel at ease? Are the staff and residents receptive, inviting and friendly?

5 Questions to Ask When Touring an Assisted Living Community

There’s no question that choosing an assisted living community are generally overwhelming. But, considering these five things when considering making the move to assisted living will help you make a better-educated decision:

  1. How many employees are available to assist during the night? Some assisted living facilities provide nursing staff around the clock, while others may have more generalized help available after hours. It isn't required that night and day care be made available in assisted living in Massachusetts.
  2. Is there a waitlist? Here's where doing all your homework can seriously pay off - plan ahead of time! Popular communities can fill up fast. If the main one you like is not available, enquire about the waitlist and what the community’s plan is for handling it. Many communities will require a deposit and some communities have internal lists for special health care needs.
  3. Will there be an outdoor space? Moving to assisted living will not mean you or your loved one needs to give up a beloved lawn or patio space. If the ability to access a gardening area, a patio or a courtyard is definitely important for your loved one, visit a community that gives residents that space. Many larger assisted living facilities offer a range of outdoor spaces, with features such as strolling paths, gardens and BBQ spaces 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 facilities have a ratio of 1 personal care associate for each 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely depending on the size of the facility, so make certain to ask about the facilities you would like. Ultimately, you need to understand if this facility will give you your family member with the support they want?
  5. What services are included in the monthly price? Understand what is usually included in the standard 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 bill a monthly fee for rent and meals but additional costs for things like medication management. Others may use a tiered cost model where different levels of health care are charged different charges. Eldercare lawyers can review these agreements and help you with any discrepancies.
