Assisted Living in Bellaire Texas

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 generally get support with bathing, personal grooming, medication administration, dressing, and meals.

Assisted living differs from a skilled nursing community where residents receive nursing care around the clock. Residents in assisted living usually have access to staff 24 hours per day but also have the opportunity to take part in engaging activities while enjoying a strong sense of community. The selection of care offerings provided in assisted living can vary with some communities offering support for seniors with certain medical requirements such as for example cognitive impairment from Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia, diabetes or incontinence care.

Knowing what sort of senior housing is most beneficial for you or your family member can be difficult. Consult with your doctor to make sure you are deciding on the right degree of care or phone our Senior Living Advisors who are experts in senior care and can help you find a senior care community in Bellaire that meets your preferences.

What Solutions Are Available?

Generally, just about all assisted living facilities offer a variety of activities, amenities, meal plans, and transportation. Offerings offered in assisted living may differ greatly in each facility.

Other services often seen in assisted living include:

  • Access to medical services
  • Usage of therapies on-site and off-site
  • Activities and events calendar
  • Fitness and nutrition courses
  • Housekeeping services, including linen services
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication management

Will Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

Medicare can play an important role in paying for some senior care. However, it is vital to comprehend what Medicare will pay for - and what it does not.

If the beneficiary has been in the hospital for at least three days, Medicare will cover short-term skilled nursing care associated with hospitalization for up to 100 days, if your doctor recommends it. However, Medicare covers only short-term, non-custodial care. This means Medicare will not cover long-term nursing home stays or assisted living. Additionally, Medicare typically will not cover memory care since the care needed for dementia is widely seen as custodial care. Medicare covers medically necessary skilled therapy at a nursing home only when you require short-term skilled care for an illness or injury and you meet certain conditions.

How Can I See Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Texas?

The state of Texas offers great access to its assisted living facility records through its Department of Health and Human Services website. Info available includes licensed assisted living communities that are updated often, and information about assisted living licensing and violations.

Texas defines assisted living as offering “individualized health and personal care assistance in a homelike setting with an emphasis on personal dignity, autonomy, independence, and privacy. Facilities can be large apartment-like settings or private residences. Services include bathing, dressing, meals, administering or supervising medication, and toileting.”

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 required.

  • Type A: Cares for residents who do not need routine attendance during sleeping hours and are can follow directions during an emergency.
  • Type B: Residents require staff assistance to evacuate, are not capable of following directions in an emergency and require nighttime attendance.

How can I Choose the Right Assisted Living Community?

Selecting the best community requires significant thought and consideration, so invest some time when assessing the features, guidelines, and services which is available from those communities.

When touring a community, consider these key elements:

  • Activities: Have a look at the facility calendar of events. Do they match your loved one’s likes and dislikes? Do they accept resident contributions? Schedule your tour together with community events. Ask the manager if you can observe the events as well as take part. Are the activities and get-togethers well attended? Do they foster a feeling of belonging? Does the staff seem to be to be taking pleasure in the activity too? Do the occasions and activities vary in size and type? Do they include excursions and outings away from the community? Ask about faith based services, if it's important to you and your family.
  • Cleanliness: How does the facility smell? Is the facility clean? Look past the visible furniture and have a closer look into edges, baseboards, and windows. Ask how frequently house cleaning services are supplied in the private living space. Be sure you get full details on the types of maintenance provided and the estimated response times. Ask for specifics on laundry options.
  • Friendliness: Be sure to obtain a good knowledge of the staffing routine. How many people are actually involved in residents’ care? Make sure you receive an introduction to the management team. It is important that you trust the property’s staff. How do staff members interact with current residents? Do they pay attention and make eye contact?
  • Meals: When visiting communities, it is necessary to discuss meal alternatives and learn about dining times, options and procedures. Is mealtime at a set period? Is room service available? Ask when you can join them for a meal to be sure the food is enjoyable. It's not only a great way to sample the cuisine, but it’s a great opportunity to meet other residents. Make sure you discuss what happens if a resident cannot make it to the dining area for a meal.
  • Go with your intuition: Can you imagine your loved one feeling happy here? Do you feel at ease? Are the staff and residents receptive, inviting and friendly? If one of you has a bad feeling, don’t hesitate to explore additional alternatives.
  • Reputation: Ask around! Seek the assistance of residents and families, past and present, for his or her honest thoughts about the facility. Many facilities have a resident council that'll be happy to answer all of your questions. Also you can read a number of the 1348 family reviews on our web-site.
  • Safety and Security: Security and safety features are incredibly important and offer peace of mind for the caregiver, especially for seniors seeking memory care. Be sure that bathrooms are accessible and have grab bars in convenient spots. Does the facility have an emergency call system in each apartment? What goes on if a resident does wander? Find out about other security features in living quarters and through the entire facility. Be sure to find out about staffing schedules to determine who is on-site at all times to support residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing routines differ during the night? How will the facility assist or manage residents’ medication needs?

5 Questions to Ask When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

There’s no question that choosing an assisted living facility can be overwhelming. Even so, considering these five important things when thinking about making the move to assisted living can help you make a better-informed decision:

  1. How many staff are available to assist at night? Some assisted living facilities provide nursing staff night and day, while others may have more generalized help on hand after hours.
  2. Is there a waitlist? Here's where doing all your homework can really pay off - plan ahead! Popular facilities can fill fast. If the main one you like is not available, enquire about the waitlist and what the facility’s policy is for administering it. Many communities will ask for a deposit plus some communities have internal lists for special care needs.
  3. Will there be a patio space? Moving to assisted living does not mean you or your family member needs to let go of a beloved lawn or patio space. If having access to a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is important for your loved one, search for a facility that provides residents that space. Many larger assisted living communities include a range of yard, with features such as for example BBQ spaces, gardens, and walking paths.
  4. What is the staff-to-resident ratio? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living facilities have a ratio of 1 personal care associates for every 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely depending on the size of the community, so be sure to enquire about the conveniences you are searching for. Ultimately, you would like to know if this facility will provide your family member with the support they want.
  5. What services are as part of the monthly fee? Understand what is usually included in the basic fee structure and what might incur additional expense before signing any agreement. Some facilities use a fee-for-service model, or a la carte pricing, this means they ask for a monthly fee for rent and meals but additional charges for things such as medication management. Others may use a tiered pricing model where different degrees of care are billed differently service fees.
