Assisted Living in Springfield

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a long-term, live-in situation where seniors can receive support for some of the things that they can no longer do for themselves, such as dressing or bathing. Skilled staff are on site to help those who can still maintain some independence. Bathing and dressing may be assisted for example, and activities and entertainment may be arranged for to help create a pleasant atmosphere. It can be a great vehicle for socializing with other seniors and making a new friend or two.

Each community will have a unique atmosphere and philosophy, as well as different services that may be offered. Some facilities may be made up of individual apartments; while others may have many residents all on one floor or wing in shared rooms, it is important to note that assisted living is a very different and separate arrangement from a nursing home facility, which is for more advanced inabilities and would provide 24-hour care. The level of attention your loved one requires may help you decide which is a better fit.

What Is Senior Living Like in Springfield, MO?

There are several assisted living communities from which to choose in the Springfield area. Many of them are close enough to enjoy some of the many cultural offerings available in this great city. Knowing a bit more about the city may help you see what a great place it is to live in. Springfield, Missouri is a bustling historic and economic center. Its history includes being a former settlement of the Kickapoo and Osage tribes of Native Americans, being involved in the Civil War, and having a rowdy visit from “Wild” Bill Hickok.

Country music gained a strong foothold here with many of the biggest names in the business visiting or living in Springfield. At one time, visiting dignitaries were presented with a certificate proclaiming them a “hillbilly of the Ozarks,” the mountain range plateau the city is built on.

Today, Springfield, MO is known for sporting events at the O’Reilly Family Event Center, its parks and recreation with such locations as Busiek State Forest, Buffalo National River, the Ozark National Scenic Riverways and Fantastic Caverns, the only cave in North America to offer a ride-through tour of the mineral formations. With a variety of entertainment and dining options, it is a great city in which to work or play and to find outings that seniors can enjoy.

What Services Are Available?

Assisted living centers in the Springfield area offer many different amenities. Some are more concierge-style such as salons, room service and transportation. Other services are much more about subsistence, such as dressing and bathing or help with toileting and medications.

Here is a sampling of services that might be offered for senior care. Some of these may be included in the monthly cost, and some may cost extra. We can help you find out if the services your loved one needs are available at a specific location.
  • 24-hour awake staff on duty
  • Meals provided
  • Shared or private rooms
  • Incontinence care including bowels
  • Visiting physician and therapist
  • Complimentary transportation
  • Memory care
  • Salon including hair, nails and barber
  • Access to devotional services
  • Management/administration of medications as needed
  • Indoor and outdoor common areas for socializing or getting out of the room
  • Restaurant-style dining or meals brought to the room
  • Hospice care

There may be other services available depending on location. And don’t forget the option that your loved one may value the most – Find out whether they can bring Fluffy or Rover. Many communities allow small pets on site.

How Much Does Assisted Living Cost in Springfield, MO?

Most Springfield area assisted living communities average in the range of $3,696 monthly in the city, with a metropolitan cost of $3,724 compared to a state average of $3,990. Memory care may increase the cost to $4,623 in the city.

Understanding Assisted Living Cost

The subject of costs can be tricky to comprehend. There are a couple of ways assisted living facilities may figure the charges. The first is an all-inclusive flat rate fee, which covers a wide range of services whether they are used, or not. If your loved one will require most of those services, it may be worthwhile to go this route.

The second most common way is the “a la carte” approach. You can choose which services they will provide and which you would like to take care of yourself. For instance, you may choose to pay for your mother’s laundry services but may prefer to take her to her favorite salon to get her haircut and colored, rather than using in-house providers. Senior care advisors can help explain these costs and give you some ideas of how to pay for them.

What Are the Signs It's Time for Assisted Living?

There are many reasons why those caring for seniors might need to consider assisted living as a good option. If your loved one is experiencing some personality changes from dementia or Alzheimer’s-related memory issues. They may become agitated or wander off by themselves without letting anyone know. They may no longer able to do simple self-care such as bathing or using the toilet by themselves. They may require enough help and round the clock monitoring that it wears you as the primary caregiver thin, even interfering with your own health or employment. These are some of the signs that it may be time to consider assisted living, along with the loss of ADLs and IADLs.

What Are ADLs and IADLs?

Some of the other signs that it may be time to find a caring assisted living center include what are called the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and the Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs). ADLs include those things which constitute independent self-care, such as walking or transferring from the bed to a wheelchair, bathing, eating, toileting and continence, fixing their hair, and dressing. These are basic essentials in caring for themselves.

The IADLs are those things that allow a person to maintain independent living. These include meal preparation, doing their own laundry, shopping for their own groceries, driving or taking a bus or managing medications or their finances. It may also include the ability to do the dishes or other household cleaning essentials, and the ability to use the telephone or get help when needed. All of these reasons can contribute to the need for considering a move to assisted living.

What to Look For When Touring Assisted Living Facilities

Many facilities welcome a visit and are happy to show you around and introduce you to their staff. Making arrangements in advance to come at a less-busy time makes it more likely they will have a little time they can spend with you. You may find it helpful to call an Advisor at A Place for Mom to assist you in making the arrangements to tour a facility or two once you have narrowed down your choices.

While you are there, ask to see a room and notice whether it looks and smells clean. Inquire as to whether you can bring in your loved one’s own furnishings and what their policies are regarding visits or outings with family and friends.

Ask about their staff to resident ratio and whether they have an awake staff on duty overnight; ask if they manage and administer medications, what nurses or medical staff in on-site and whether a physician visits regularly. Notice whether other residents appear to be happy and well cared for.

It might be a good idea, if the facility is willing to arrange a second visit – This time with your loved one. Let them have a look around and maybe come during the noon hour and pay for a meal so you can eat together to get an idea of how that works and whether the food is to their liking. It may comfort both of you to know they will be eating well.

How Do I Find the Right Assisted Living Facility?

Making the decision to move forward is a big step, but there is no need for you to go it alone. At A Place for Mom, we have a good understanding of what makes an assisted living facility a good fit for a senior and for their families. Our friendly Advisors can help guide you through this process at no cost to you, a real comfort when facing such a big decision.

There are many facts and details to wade through when selecting a place you feel good about, and at A Place for Mom, we appreciate the love and emotion that goes into making sure your loved one can be happy and well cared for in an assisted living community. We want to help alleviate your stress and concerns and help you feel confident in your decision and that you have chosen well.
