Assisted Living in Berryville, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a long-term senior care solution that includes support for the activities of daily living such as meals, bathing, dressing and medication administration. It is not the same as a nursing home, where residents can expect round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living community has its mixture of services, services, activities and culture. Many also give support for seniors with particular needs such as for example diabetes, incontinence management needs or the early stages of cognitive impairment because of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Assisted Living Vs. Memory Care

Based on the National Center for Assisted Living, nearly one in four residents currently in assisted living in the state of Virginia experience Alzheimer’s disease or another kind of dementia. In addition, many assisted living facilities give support for seniors with cognitive issues. So how do you know if designated memory care or just assisted living is what your family member needs?

Although many assisted living communities offer memory care onsite, the two types of care are not the same. Memory care provides full-time specialized services for somebody with dementia while assisted living is made to meet the requirements of those who want help with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as for example showering, dressing or eating. Assisted living can be a good choice for people in the earlier levels of dementia but for those who have experienced wandering problems or who've caused harm to themselves or others, a protected memory care environment is probably a better option.

In case you have specific questions about what sort of services your family member requires, talk to a physician. They can help you determine whether assisted living will work or if you need to search for memory care. You may also speak to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have helped many family members with concerns about what kind of treatment may be the best fit for their family member or friend and they will help you, too.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Berryville, VA

Many families fund a move to assisted living through the sale of a home or personal savings, but for some people, this may not be an choice. Listed below are three other solutions that may help you pay for assisted living:

  • Veterans Benefits: Many seniors may be eligible for veterans benefits that they don’t know about. One benefit in particular, Aid & Attendance, has made it possible for a large number of families manage to pay for assisted living. To meet the criteria, veterans need to be at least 65 years old and have served at least 3 months of active duty, with at least 1 day during what the Veterans Administration considers active wartime periods. Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans can also be in a position to obtain benefits. With the current average age group of U.S. veterans at 64 years old, it’s worth it to discover if your loved one may be eligible for benefits. See our Guide to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for more details or contact the Virginia Department of Veterans Services or Veterans Information for Virginia to learn more or head to va.gov.
  • Life Insurance Policies. If the senior you are helping transfer to assisted living possesses a life insurance policy, you might be in a position to liquidate the policy and receive funds now. Different limitations and rules apply depending on the type of policy you have, so contact a monetary advisor or elderlaw lawyer to find out more about your alternatives and to evaluate what’s best for your situation.
  • Reverse Mortgages. For senior couples who may have different needs, a reverse mortgage can be a good method for just one person to go into assisted living while the other remains at home while his / her spouse transitions to senior living. A reverse mortgage makes it possible for homeowners aged 62 or older to borrow on their home equity. For more information, get in touch with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to look for a reverse mortgage counseling agency near you.

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Finding the right assisted living facility is a big decision, both for a senior and for their family. Here are five points to consider when considering making the move to assisted living:

  1. What's the staff-to-resident ratio? Will this community offer your loved one with the support they need? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living facilities possess a ratio of 1 personal care associate for every 23 residents. Staffing can vary greatly based on the size of the community, so be sure to ask about the communities you are interested in.
  2. Is there outdoor space? For many residents making the changeover from a private residence to assisted living involves leaving behind a favorite backyard or outdoor area, so having access to a gardening area, a patio or a courtyard can be important. Many larger assisted living communities provide a range of yards, with features such as walking paths, gardens and BBQ areas for community occasions.
  3. Just how many staff are available to assist at night? Some assisted living facilities provide 24x7 nursing personnel, while others may have more generalized support on hand after hours. In the state of Virginia, assisted living facilities must have a minimum of two direct care workers awake and available at all times.
  4. Is there a wait list? Popular communities can fill up fast. If the one you like isn't available, ask about the waiting list and what the community’s plan is for managing it. Many facilities will ask for a deposit many facilities have internal lists for special treatment needs. Here is where doing all your research can really pay back -- plan in advance!
  5. What services are included in the monthly charge? Before signing the contract, it’s smart to understand what is included in the basic fee framework and what might incur additional cost. Some communities employ a fee-for-support style, or a la carte pricing, this means they charge a regular charge for rent and meals but further costs for things such as medication management. Others may use a tiered prices model where varied levels of care are charged different fees.

How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living Facility?

With so many choices to choose from, choosing the best assisted living community can seem like a daunting task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors will help -- they are experts in helping match seniors to the facilities that will be the best fit for his or her care needs, personality and resources.

Here are some things to keep in mind during your search:

  • Be sure to look for your loved one, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities offer everything from homey surroundings to upscale resort-style luxury living. It can be easy to be influenced by the features and options you might decide for yourself, but eventually it comes down to what will work best for your family member.
  • Focus on the present, not days gone by. Does your loved one want help bathing and getting dressed? Do they have special needs like limited eyesight or special diets? Would they benefit from the benefits of a larger community or be more comfortable in a smaller, more intimate environment?
  • Think about the here and now, not what may have been their choice ten or 15 years back.
  • Intend to visit at least three to five facilities, if you possibly can. Start with scheduled tours and consider having meals with the residents. If none of them seems like a good fit, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more choices. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take down notes while you’re there.

The task of choosing the right assisted living facility can be overpowering, but there are assets that can help. Call A Place for Mom today -- we can help save you money and time and make sure you make the correct choice.
