Assisted Living in Arlington Texas

Exactly what is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a kind of senior housing for older adults to get support with activities of daily living (ADLs). Assisted living residents often get support with bathing, personal grooming, medication supervision, dressing, and meals.

Assisted living differs from a skilled nursing community where occupants receive nursing care night and day. Residents in assisted living usually have access to staff 24 hours per day but likewise have the opportunity to participate in engaging activities while enjoying a solid sense of community. The selection of care offerings provided in assisted living can vary with some communities offering support for seniors with specific medical requirements such as for example cognitive impairment from Alzheimer’s disease or a related type of dementia, diabetes or incontinence care and attention.

Knowing what sort of senior housing is most beneficial for you personally or your family member can be challenging. Speak with your doctor to make sure you are deciding on the right degree of care or contact our Senior Living Advisors who are experts in senior care and will help you locate a senior care community in Arlington that meets your needs.

What Services Are Available?

Generally, most assisted living communities offer a selection of activities, amenities, meal plans, and transportation. Solutions offered in assisted living may differ greatly in each community.

Other features often seen in assisted living include:

  • Usage of medical services
  • Access to therapies on-site and off-site
  • Activities and happenings calendar
  • Fitness and nutrition courses
  • Housekeeping assistance, including linen services
  • Meal planning
  • Medication administration
  • Transportation services

How Do I Tour Assisted Living Facilities?

There are 50 assisted living communities in the greater Arlington area. It is strongly suggested that you tour at least three to five assisted living communities before choosing the best one for you as well as your loved one. Touring facilities will help you discover what options can be found, and what your own personal preferences are, and can ultimately assist you in making a decision about what is ideal for a family member.

Will Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

Medicare can play a significant role in paying for some senior care. However, it is crucial to understand what Medicare pays for - and what it does not.

If the beneficiary has been in hospitalized for at least three days, Medicare covers short-term skilled nursing care associated with hospitalization for 100 days, if your doctor recommends it. However, Medicare covers only short-term, noncustodial care. This means Medicare will not cover long-term nursing home stays or assisted living. Additionally, Medicare typically does not cover memory care since the care necessary for dementia is viewed as custodial care. Medicare covers medically necessary skilled health care at a nursing home only if you need short-term skilled care for an illness or injury and you meet certain conditions.

In Texas, there are two main types of assisted living. The Texas Health and Human Services licenses assisted living facilities based on residents' physical and mental capability to evacuate the facility in an emergency and whether nighttime attendance is needed.

  • Type B: Residents require staff assistance to evacuate, are not capable of following directions within an emergency and need nighttime attendance.

How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living Community?

Selecting the right community requires serious planning and consideration, so invest some time when assessing the features, guidelines, and services which is available from those communities.

When touring a facility, consider these key elements:

Ask the manager if you can see the events or even take part. Are the activities and occasions well attended? Do they foster a feeling of community? Does the staff appear to be taking pleasure in the activity also? Do the occasions and activities vary in size and type? Do they include trips and outings away from the community? Ask about faith based services, if it is important to you and your family.
  • Cleanliness: How does the community smell? Is the facility clean? Look beyond the visible furnishings and have a closer look into edges, baseboards, and windows. Ask how frequently housekeeping services are provided in the private living space. Be sure you get complete details on the types of maintenance offered and the expected response times. Ask for specifics on laundry assistance.
  • Friendliness: Make sure to obtain a good understanding of the staffing structure. How many people are truly involved with residents’ care? Be sure you receive an introduction to the management team. It is important that you have confidence in the property’s staff. How do staff members interact with current residents? Do they listen and make eye contact?
  • Meals: When visiting facilities, it is beneficial to discuss entree options and find out about dining hours, options and procedures. Is mealtime at an established period of time? Is room service available? Ask when you can join them for a meal to be sure the food is enjoyable. Not only is it a great way to sample the cuisine, but it’s an excellent opportunity to meet other residents. Make sure to discuss what happens if a resident is unable to get it to the dining area for meals.
  • Go with your instincts: Can you envisage your family member feeling happy here? Do you feel at ease? Are the staff and residents amenable, welcoming and genial? If one of you has a bad feeling, don’t hesitate to explore other possibilities.
  • Reputation: Ask around! Seek the guidance of residents and family members, past and present, regarding honest opinions about the community. Many communities have a resident council which will be happy to answer all of your questions. Also you can read a number of the 1413 family reviews on our site.
  • Security and safety: Safety and security features are very important and offer reassurance for the caregiver, especially for seniors seeking memory care. Be sure that bathrooms are accessible and also have grab bars in convenient locations. Does the community have an emergency call system in each apartment? What goes on if a resident does wander? Learn about other safe practices features found in living quarters and through the entire community. Be sure to find out about staffing schedules to determine who's on-site all the time to help residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing routines differ at night? How does the facility assist or manage residents’ medication requirements?
