Assisted Living in Irving Texas

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a kind of senior housing for older individuals to receive support with activities of daily living (ADLs). Assisted living residents ordinarily receive support with bathing, personal grooming, medication management, dressing, and meals.

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

Knowing what sort of senior housing is best for you personally or your loved one can be hard. Consult with your doctor to make sure you are choosing the right degree of care or phone our Senior Living Advisors who are specialists in senior care and will help you locate a senior care community in Irving that meets your preferences.

What Services Are Available?

Generally, most assisted living facilities offer a variety of activities, amenities, meal plans, and transportation. Services offered in assisted living may differ greatly in each facility.

Other services often seen in assisted living include:

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

How Do I Tour Assisted Living Facilities?

There are 50 assisted living facilities in the wider Irving vicinity. It is strongly suggested that you tour at least 3 to 5 assisted living facilities before determining the right one for you and your loved one. Touring communities will help you uncover what options can be found, and what your own personal preferences are, and can ultimately assist you in making a decision about what is best for a loved one. Call or call A Place for Mom and we will help you set up a tour at your preferred community.

Here are some of the top questions you have to be prepared to ask throughout your visit:

  • Are the current residents friendly and cheerful?
  • Will there be services not included in the monthly fee? If so, what are they and how much do they cost?
  • Is there normally a nurse available night and day?
  • Is an initial assessment required before admission?

Will Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

Medicare can play a crucial role in paying for some senior care. However, it is vital to understand what Medicare will pay for - and what it will 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, noncustodial care. This means Medicare won't cover long-term nursing home stays or assisted living. Additionally, Medicare typically will not cover memory care because the care necessary for dementia is viewed as custodial care. Medicare covers medically necessary skilled therapy at a nursing home only when you need short-term skilled care for an illness or injury and you meet certain conditions.
