Assisted Living in Lakeside Marblehead

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer basic, daily living support to seniors. Based on the location, services provided may include bathing, dressing, medicine management, meals and transport. Some communities also offer exercise programs, regular cultural excursions and other fun activities designed to engage the mind and body. Its essential to remember that most assisted living communities do not offer 24-hour intensive health care, which is a common service offered at nursing homes. However, they do offer daily services designed to keep your parent safe and healthy. Also, they are generally very proficient at helping people remain as active as they wish to choose to be and build new social connections.

What Services Are Available?

Assisted living communities offer many services to residents, although individual options differ by community. Many offer the following:

  • Outdoor and indoor common areas
  • Complimentary transportation
  • Private rooms
  • Onsite and offsite activities
  • Meals
  • Offsite devotional services
  • Housekeeping
  • Basic individualized care assistance
  • Visiting medical professionalls
Some may also offer Dementia care services, medication management, onsite beauticians and other assistance. You will need to call us and tour different communities to learn more about the exact amenities and assistance they provide.

What Are ADLs and IADLs?

If you've came across the term Activities of Daily Living or the acronym ADL during your time researching senior care options for your loved one, you may be unsure exactly what it means. Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) refer to the essential activities a person needs to be able to do to look after him or herself. There are six basic ADLs sometimes referred to as BADLs that are measured when determining a persons ability to function independently:

  1. Having the ability to feed oneself
  2. Bathing and showering without assistance
  3. Continence or being able to control ones bladder and bowels
  4. Fully dressing oneself, including fastening closures
  5. Using the toilet and cleaning oneself
  6. Having functioning mobility, including walking and transferring from one place to another

If an individual struggles to perform one or more of these activities, it often becomes apparent that he / she can't live by itself. When living at an assisted living community, among the primary roles of the personnel is to ensure seniors get help completing any ADLs they cannot perform by themselves.

In addition to the six basic Activities of Daily Living, it is also very important to families to evaluate their loved ones capability to complete Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs). While these activities aren't as essential for survival as BADLs, they remain necessary activities for a person to live by itself. These activities include:

  • Housekeeping and cleaning
  • Doing laundry
  • Managing finances
  • Taking recommended medicine
  • Preparing meals
  • Transportation
  • Grocery shopping
  • Using communication equipment

While not being able to perform IADLs will not necessarily indicate that the average person is in need of more constant care, they typically indicate that the individual might be experiencing a physical or cognitive decline and are no longer able to safely live by themselves.

How Do I Tour Assisted Living communities?

It is wise to tour several assisted living communities before choosing the best one for your loved one. That way you'll discover what options are out there and will have an easier time thinning down your choices. Call or get in touch with A Place for Mom and we will help you set up a tour. Here are a few of the top questions you need to be ready to ask during your tour:

  • What kind of training and experience do your employees have?
  • Can your staff administer medication?
  • What's the staff-to-resident ratio?
  • Any kind of outdoor spaces residents can enjoy?
  • What apartment types are available and what exactly are their costs?
  • Is there a nurse on-site 24/7?
  • What is your discharge plan?
  • Will your policy want an initial assessment before admission?
  • Is there a wait list? If so, just how many are currently on it?
  • What are your payment and billing policies and procedures?
  • Do you include all services in the monthly charge? If not, how much are extra services?
  • What are the existing residents like?
You should also consider any residents you meet while you're there. Do they seem content and so are they cared for well? Are the workers friendly and engaged? Are the indoor and outdoor areas kept clean and tidy? Is the food healthy and of top quality?

  • Residential care homes

What Are the Signs Its Time for Assisted Living?

It can be hard to learn when its time to take your family member to an assisted living community. The answer is different for everyone, but here are some signs your senior mother or father or other family member might need care beyond what you can offer:

  • You are feeling excessive stress: Looking after a loved one can put a whole lot of stress on your time, feelings and resources. If you feel like you can't handle the higher level of tension in your life, it might be time to start looking for senior living communities in your area.
  • You are concerned about your loved ones basic safety: If your home is more than one story and you get worried about your loved ones member falling down the stairs, it might be time to relocate to a far more secure area where its simple to get from one place to another. You may also worry about your capability to watch over your loved one if she or he develops physical or mental health issues. If you feel inadequate as a caregiver, it could be time to research assisted living communities.
  • Increased agitation: It isn't uncommon for people with Alzheimer's to be unpredictable in their behavior. Should this happen, its time to consider placement.
  • Wandering: When dementia advances to later stages, wandering is normally common. You may eventually find it impossible to continue to keep a watchful eye on your senior family member long enough to avoid her or him from getting lost or finding yourself in a risky situation.
  • Sundowning: People who have Alzheimer's frequently have problems with a condition called Sundowners syndrome, which refers to agitated behavior that worsens at night. This behavior may take a toll on the mental, psychological and physical wellness of family caregivers.
If you begin to feel any signs of resentment, anger or ill feelings toward your loved one, its time to understand you may not be able to provide the loving and effective care she or he needs any longer. Fortunately, there are senior living communities that help decrease your burden and present your family member basic day-to-day care and opportunities for socialization.

How Do I Choose the best community?

Choosing a senior living community is an essential decision that will have a big effect on your life. The more you find out about quality living communities in your town, the easier it'll be for you to find one which will suit your aging parent well. Here are some suggestions for getting a community that you as well as your loved one can feel good about:

  • Think about your parents preferences instead of your own: Its normal to consider a community that fits your preferences and tastes, but remember, you wont be the one living there. Look at different communities through the eyes of your parent and choose one that she or he will be comfortable in.
  • Don't make the decision alone: You shouldn't shoulder the entire burden of selecting a living destination for your senior mother or father by yourself. Talk to various other family and friends to obtain suggestions and feedback about numerous locations. You can also talk with a Senior Living Advisor at A Place for Mom to obtain additional information about communities in your area.
  • Select a community that can meet your parents requirements: If your parent has a health condition that will require special care, be sure you choose a community that is equipped to have the level of care necessary to maintain a top quality of life.
  • Give yourself time to make a decision: Generally, family caregivers have adequate time to decide on the right living destination for a parent, so don't make the mistake of jumping right into a contract prematurely. Give yourself enough time you should thoroughly research numerous communities so you feel reassured and more comfortable with your eventual selection.
  • Read the small print: Most assisted living contracts are fairly transparent and simple to understand, but some may include vocabulary that you don't fully understand. Its wise to carefully review the agreement with a lawyer before signing to make sure you understand it completely. You should also take some period to review the agreement for hidden fees.
