Assisted Living in Washington Township

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer basic, everyday living services to seniors. Depending on the location, services provided can include bathing, dressing, medication management, meals and transportation. Some communities also have exercise programs, regular cultural outings and other fun activities designed to engage the mind and body. Its important 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 residents remain as active as they wish to choose to be and build new personal 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 areas
  • Onsite and offsite activities
  • Meals
  • Offsite devotional services
  • House cleaning services
  • Basic personal care assistance
  • Visiting professionalls
Some may also offer Alzheimer's care services, medication administration, onsite beauticians and other assistance. You will need to contact us and tour various communities to learn more about the specific amenities and assistance they provide.

What Are ADLs and IADLs?

If you've encountered the term Activities of Daily Living or the acronym ADL during your time finding out about senior care choices for your family member, you might be unsure precisely what this means. Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) refer to the essential activities individuals must be able to carry out to look after him or herself. There are six basic ADLs sometimes referred to as BADLs that are measured when finding out a persons capability to function independently:

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

If an individual struggles to perform a number of of these activities, it often becomes apparent that he or she can no longer live alone. When living at an assisted living community, among the primary roles of the staff 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 needed for survival as BADLs, they remain necessary actions for a person to live by itself. These activities include:

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

While not being able to perform IADLs does not necessarily indicate that the individual is looking for more constant care, they typically indicate that the person might be suffering from a physical or cognitive decline and are no longer in a position to safely live alone.

How Do I Tour Assisted Living Communities?

It is smart to tour several assisted living communities before choosing the best one for your loved one. That way you will discover what choices are out there and will have an easier time narrowing down your alternatives. Call or contact A Place for Mom and we will help you setup a tour. Below are a few of the top questions you should be ready to ask during your tour:

  • What kind of training and knowledge do your personnel 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's your discharge plan?
  • Will your policy require an initial assessment before entrance?
  • Is there a wait list? If so, how many are currently on it?
  • What exactly are your payment and billing plans and procedures?
  • Do you include all options in the monthly charge? If not, how much are extra services?
  • What are the current residents like?
You should also consider any residents you speak to while you're there. Do they seem content and are they looked after well? Are the staff members friendly and engaged? Are the interior and outdoor areas held clean and tidy? Is the food nutritious and of good quality?

What Are the Signs Its Time for Assisted Living?

It can be hard to know when its time to take your family member to an assisted living community. The answer differs for everyone, but below are a few signs your senior parent or other family member may need care beyond what you can offer:

  • You feel excessive stress: Caring for a loved one can put a whole lot of strain on your time, emotions and resources. In the event that you feel like you can no longer handle the high level of stress in your life, it could be time to start searching for senior living communities in your area.
  • You are concerned about your loved ones safety: If your property is more than one story and you worry about your family 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 ability to view over your loved one if he or she develops physical or mental medical issues. If you feel inadequate as a caregiver, it may be time to research assisted living communities.
  • Increased agitation: It isn't uncommon for those with Alzheimer's to be unpredictable in their behavior. Should this happen, its time to think about placement.
  • Wandering: When Alzheimer's advances to later stages, wandering is normally common. You may eventually think it is impossible to maintain a watchful eye on your senior family member long enough to prevent her or him from getting lost or ending up in a dangerous scenario.
  • Sundowning: People who have Alzheimer's frequently suffer from a condition called Sundowners syndrome, which refers to agitated behavior that worsens in the evening. This behavior may take a toll on the mental, psychological and physical health of family caregivers.
If you start to feel any symptoms of resentment, anger or ill feelings toward your family member, its time to understand you may not be able to supply the loving and capable care he or she 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 Right Community?

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

  • Think about your parents preferences instead of your own: Its normal to look for a community that matches your preferences and tastes, but keep in mind, you wont be the one living there. Look at different communities through the eye of your mother or father and choose one that he or she will be most comfortable in.
  • Don't decide alone: You shouldn't shoulder the entire burden of obtaining a living destination for your senior mother or father on your own. Talk to other family members and friends to obtain recommendations and feedback about various locations. You may also talk to a Senior Living Advisor at A Place for Mom to get more information about communities in your area.
  • Choose a community which will meet your parents needs: If your parent has a health condition that will require special care, make sure you choose a community that's equipped to have the level of care necessary to maintain a good quality of life.
  • Give yourself time to make a decision: Usually, family caregivers have sufficient time to decide on the right living destination for a parent, therefore don't make the mistake of jumping into a contract too quickly. Give yourself enough time you should thoroughly research different communities so you feel reassured and more comfortable with your eventual selection.
  • Browse the fine print: Most assisted living contracts are fairly transparent and simple to understand, but some can include vocabulary that you don't fully understand. Its wise to thoroughly review the agreement with a legal professionall before signing to be sure you understand it completely. You should also take some period to examine the contract for hidden fees.
