Assisted Living in North Las Vegas, NV

What Is an Assisted Living Facility?

In order to know if your loved one should transition to an assisted living facility, it's helpful to know what the purpose of an assisted living facility. Assisted living facilities are different than memory care facilities and independent living facilities in several ways. In memory care facilities, seniors have many tasks done for them and are rarely left unsupervised, whereas seniors receive little to no assistance in daily tasks in independent living facilities. In an assisted living facility, the staff helps seniors to manage day-to-day activities and tasks, catering to the individual's needs. A variety of care is available to seniors in an assisted living facility, and an assisted living facility is often an ideal choice for seniors who need help managing medications, bathing and more, while also offering seniors the opportunity to maintain as much of their independence for as long as is safely possible.

What Services Do Assisted Living Facilities Offer to Residents?

Each assisted living facility is likely to vary in what services they provide. However, many services are commonly provided by assisted living facilities. Services many assisted living facilities in North Las Vegas, Nevada, often include:

  • Varying levels and types of assistance based on an individual's needs
  • The option to have an individual room, normally at an increased price
  • Transportation
  • Engaging activities onsite, such as games or classes
  • Various common spaces onsite
  • Visits from specialists in the healthcare field
  • Offsite activities
  • Dining options

There are several ways families can pay for the costs of an assisted living facility, and often, families use a variety of methods to cover the costs associated with an assisted living facility.

Long-Term Care Insurance: If your loved one has a long-term insurance policy, this policy may help to pay for their time at an assisted living facility. Though it is possible for seniors to purchase long-term care insurance later in life, rates for the elderly population can be high. Individual policies may vary, but long-term care insurance can make it easier to pay for the room and services your loved one needs at a facility.

Home Equity: When it's time for your loved one to transition to an assisted living facility, your loved one might have to sell their home. However, you can often use the money from the sale to help pay for your loved one's residency at an assisted living facility.

Personal Income or Savings: You or your loved one may have savings set aside in order to pay for their care as they age. Using these savings to ensure your loved one is well-cared for at an assisted living facility is often beneficial. Additionally, many families also find that taking a portion out of their income to pay for the assisted living facility to be simple and easy.

Veteran's Benefits: If your loved one served in the armed forces during certain times of war they may be eligible for a benefit called Aid & Attendance. More information about this often overlooked benefit can be found on the Veteran's website.

What Are the Signs It May Be Time for a Loved One to Move to an Assisted Living Facility?

Making the choice to search for an assisted living facility for your loved one can feel overwhelming initially, especially if you are questioning whether or not it's really time for your loved one to consider moving to a facility. Often, there are various signs that indicate that it might be time for your loved one to consider transitioning to an assisted living facility:

  • Difficulty Managing Bills and Other Common Tasks: For seniors with cognitive issues, remembering to pay the bills on time can be hard. Though forgetting a bill once or twice doesn't necessarily mean your loved one needs to move to an assisted living facility, consistently forgetting to pay bills could be a sign that your loved one is having difficulty with their memory. Memory issues can often cause elderly people to inadvertently put themselves at risk, and knowing to look out for signs that your loved one is having issues remembering common tasks can be helpful in deciding if it's time to search for an assisted living facility.
  • Mood Swings: There are a variety of conditions and factors that can cause seniors to experience mood swings. As a caretaker, seeing your loved one experience mood swings can feel overwhelming at times, and your loved one may be overwhelmed by their own feelings as well. Serious shifts in mood can be hazardous, especially if your loved one is acting aggressively.
  • Poor Hygiene: As some people age, maintaining good hygiene can become increasingly difficult. In some circumstances, seniors do not have accessible spaces to shower or bathe, which can cause them to avoid bathing or showering entirely. A fear of falling can also deter people from showering or bathing. However, some seniors do not know how to maintain an appropriate level of hygiene due to confusion. Poor hygiene can make your loved one more susceptible to infections and other potentially dangerous health issues, which is why poor hygiene may be an indicator that you should consider an assisted living facility for your loved one. At an assisted living facility, staff can help your loved one to maintain a level of good hygiene.
  • General Memory Loss: Many elderly people become increasingly forgetful as they age, and forgetfulness can sometimes put seniors at risk if they're living by themselves. Forgetting to turn off the stove or forgetting their destination while driving can be dangerous for seniors, and a variety of conditions, including dementia, can cause elderly people to lose focus easily and forget about an important task. If you notice that your loved one has consistently forgotten to show up to appointments, has forgotten about important dates or is showing other signs of being memory loss, you may want to consider beginning the search for an assisted living facility.

How Do Local Ratings and Living Inspections Work and Why Do They Matter?

State living inspections and ratings are a useful way to judge a facility's strengths and weaknesses. Each state has different rules and regulations when it comes to ratings and living inspections, and understanding how Nevada inspects and rates assisted living facilities can be useful to you in your search for the best facility for your loved one. When inspecting facilities, the state of Nevada uses a letter grading scale to inform consumers about the individual facility. Compared to other states, Nevada has an exceptional transparency rating, meaning that the state offers consumers with a variety of information that is easy to access.

How Do I Tour Different Assisted Living Facilities?

Touring an assisted living facility is often a helpful way to learn more about a particular facility, and many families tour numerous facilities in order to compare and contrast the services provided by each facility. There are many misconceptions about what an assisted living facility may be like, and in order to find out what an individual facility is really like, visiting is usually helpful. While you are at the facility, you can talk to the staff and find out more about the specific services the facility offers. Seeing the way the staff at a facility interacts with residents can help you to determine if the location would be a good fit for your loved one. If you find that the assisted living facility wouldn't meet your loved one's needs, you can continue your search by looking at other facilities. If you do think that the assisted facility might be a good option for your loved one, it can be helpful to do additional research on the facility by looking at reviews, the facility's history with inspections and other potentially useful information. Our Senior Living Advisors can help you schedule tours and be sure that you are asking the right questions.

What Questions Should I Ask the Staff at an Assisted Living Facility?

When visiting assisted living facilities, it's often useful to ask the staff a variety of questions. Asking about the following subjects may help you to learn more about an assisted living facility:

  1. Pricing: Though all facilities range in price, there are normally different pricing options within a single facility. Wheelchair accessible rooms, single rooms or facilities with more amenities will raise the monthly cost of assisted living for your loved one. You can ask the staff about billing, additional fees and other questions while you're visiting.
  2. Policies: When a person lives in an assisted living facility, there are generally various policies pertaining to the individual moving into the facility and leaving the facility. If your loved one needs to move to a facility in a short period of time, it can be important to ask about waiting lists and the facility's policies pertaining to new residents. Many facilities also usually have discharge policies, which may require residents to give notice or fill out paperwork prior to moving out of the facility.
  3. Level of care: Asking for details about the level of care the assisted living facility provides can help you to find the best facility for your loved one. You can ask questions about what services the facility offers, the staff to resident ratio and learn more about how the facility helps residents maintain as much independence as possible.
  4. Activities: Asking about different activities that an assisted living has available can give you an idea if the facility would be a good fit for your loved one.
