Assisted Living in Rowlett Texas

What Is Assisted Living?

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

Assisted living differs from a skilled nursing community where people receive nursing care night and day. Residents in assisted living usually have access to personnel 24 hours a day but likewise have the ability to participate in engaging entertainment while enjoying a solid sense of community. The selection of care offerings provided in assisted living may differ with some communities giving support for seniors with specific medical requirements such as cognitive impairment from Alzheimer’s disease or a related kind of dementia, diabetes or incontinence care and attention.

Knowing what sort of senior housing is most beneficial for you or your loved one can be challenging. Speak with your doctor to ensure you are selecting the right degree of care or contact our Senior Living Advisors who are experts in senior care and will help you find a senior care community in Rowlett that meets your preferences.

What Solutions Are Available?

Generally, most assisted living facilities offer a variety of activities, amenities, meal plans, and transportation. Offerings offered in assisted living can vary greatly in each facility.

Other features often found in assisted living include:

  • Access to medical services
  • Access to therapies on-site and off-site
  • Activities and entertainment calendar
  • Fitness and nutrition programs
  • Housekeeping assistance, including linen services
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication management
  • Transportation services

How Do I Tour Assisted Living Communities?

There are 50 assisted living facilities in the greater Rowlett vicinity. It is strongly suggested that you tour at least 3 to 5 assisted living communities before picking 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 individual preferences are, and can ultimately help you make a decision about what is best for a loved one. Call or get in touch with A Place for Mom and we'll help you setup a tour at your desired community.

Here are some of the top questions you should be ready to ask during your visit:

  • Are the current people friendly and cheerful?
  • Are there services not included in the monthly charge? If so, what exactly are they and how much will they cost?
  • Is a nurse available night and day?
  • Is an initial evaluation required before move in?
  • Will there be a waitlist? If so, how long might it be before you can move in?
  • Will there be a courtyard or patio for residents to enjoy space outdoors?

Will Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

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

If the beneficiary has been in the hospital for at least three days, Medicare covers short-term skilled nursing care related to hospitalization for 100 days, if your physician recommends it. However, Medicare covers only short-term, noncustodial care. Therefore Medicare won't cover long-term nursing home stays or assisted living. Additionally, Medicare typically will not cover memory care as the care necessary for dementia is regarded as custodial care. Medicare covers medically necessary skilled care at a nursing home only when you require short-term skilled care for an illness or injury and you meet selected conditions.

When touring a facility, consider these key elements:

Schedule your tour in conjunction with community events. Ask the manager if you can view the activities or even join in on them. Are the activities and events well attended? Do they foster a sense of belonging? Does the staff appear to be enjoying the activity as well? Do the get-togethers and entertainment vary in size and type? Do they include trips and outings away from the community? Enquire about faith based services, if it is important to your family.

Ask how frequently housekeeping services are included in the private living space. Be sure to get total details on the types of repair provided and the estimated response times.

  • Meals: When touring communities, it is necessary to go over meal alternatives and learn about dining hours, options and procedures. Is mealtime at an organized time? Is room service made available? Ask if you can join them for meals to be sure the food is enjoyable. It's not only a great way to sample the cuisine, but it’s a great chance to meet other residents. Make sure to discuss what happens if a resident cannot get it to the dining room for meals.
  • Go with your instincts: Can you envisage your family member feeling comfortable here? Do you feel at ease? Are the staff and residents receptive, inviting and amiable? If one of you has a bad feeling, don’t hesitate to explore other options.

Find out about other safety features available in living quarters and throughout the facility. Make sure you learn about staffing schedules to determine who is on-site all the time to support residents. Are there registered nurses on-site? How do staffing patterns differ at night? How does the facility assist or manage residents’ medication needs?
