Assisted Living in Burke, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a continuing senior living option that includes support for the activities of daily living such as meals, bathing, dressing and prescription medication administration. It isn't the same as a nursing home, where residents can expect round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living facility has its own mixture of services, features, activities and culture. Many also provide assistance for seniors with specific needs such as diabetes, incontinence management needs or the first levels of cognitive decline because of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Assisted Living Vs. Memory Care

Based on the National Center for Assisted Living, almost one in four seniors currently in assisted living in the state of Virginia have Alzheimer’s disease or another kind of dementia. In addition, many assisted living communities provide support for residents with cognitive issues. So how decide if designated memory care or just assisted living is what your loved one needs?

Although some assisted living communities offer memory care onsite, each of the types of care won't be the same. Memory care provides full-time specific services for somebody with dementia while assisted living is made to meet the requirements of those who need help with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as showering, dressing or dining. Assisted living could be a good choice for people in the earlier stages of dementia but for individuals who have experienced wandering problems or who have caused harm to themselves or others, a secured memory care environment is most likely a more suitable option.

When you have specific questions when it comes to what kind of care your loved one needs, talk to a physician. They will help you decide whether assisted living will work or if you want to seek out memory care. You may also talk to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have helped many families with concerns about what kind of treatment is the best fit for his or her family member or friend and they will help you, too.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

While each community is unique, most assisted living communities offer a selection of living arrangements, a wide range of meal choices, common areas and complimentary transportation, among other solutions and facilities. Some examples are:

  • Activities, entertainment and events, both on-site and off
  • Exercise and well being programs
  • House cleaning, including bed linen service
  • Access to doctors

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Virginia

The state of Virginia offers excellent access to its information for assisted living services through the Virginia Department of Social Services. Data available to review contains the dates of inspection, whether an inspection was caused by a complaint, if the inspector discovered any infractions and what the program of correction was to address a violation.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Burke, VA

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

  • Veterans Benefits: Many seniors may qualify for veterans benefits that they don’t aren't aware of. One benefit in particular, Aid & Attendance, has made it possible for thousands of families manage to pay for assisted living. To meet the criteria, veterans have to be at least 65 years old and have served at least 3 months of active duty, with at least one day during what the Veterans Administration considers active wartime periods. Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans may also be able to obtain benefits. With the existing average age group of U.S. veterans at 64 years old, it’s worth it to find out if your loved one may be eligible for benefits. Look at our Guide to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for additional information or contact the Virginia Department of Veterans Services or Veterans Information for Virginia to find out more or head to va.gov.
  • Life Insurance Policies. If the senior you are assisting transfer to assisted living possesses a life insurance policy, you might be in a position to liquidate the plan and receive funds now. Different restrictions and regulations apply depending on the type of policy you have, so contact a financial specialist or elderlaw attorney to discover more about your options and to evaluate what’s ideal for your situation.
  • Reverse Mortgages. For senior couples who may have different needs, a reverse mortgage can be a good way for one person to go into assisted living while the other remains at home while his or her partner transitions to senior living. A reverse mortgage allows home owners aged 62 or older to borrow on their home equity. To learn more, get in touch with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to find a reverse mortgage counseling agency near you.

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Choosing the best assisted living facility is an important decision, both for a senior and for his or her family. Here are five things to consider when thinking about making the transition assisted living:

  1. What's the staff-to-resident ratio? Can this facility offer your loved one with the support they want? Based on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living facilities have a ratio of 1 personal care assistant for every 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely based on the size of the community, so make certain to ask about the communities you are looking for.
  2. Is there yard? For most residents making the transition from an individual residence to assisted living involves leaving behind a favorite garden or outdoor space, so having access to a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is important. Many larger assisted living communities offer a range of outdoor spaces, with features such as walking paths, gardens and BBQ spaces for community events.
  3. Just how many staff are available to assist during the 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 communities are required to have at the least two direct care staff members awake and available at all times.
  4. Is there a wait list? Popular facilities can fill up fast. If the main one you like is not available, find out about the wait list and what the facillity’s policy is for controlling it. Many facilities will ask for a deposit many facilities have internal lists for special treatment needs. Here is where doing your preparation can actually pay back -- plan ahead!
  5. What assistance are contained in the monthly fee? Before signing the contract, it’s a good idea to understand what is included in the basic fee structure and what might incur additional expense. Some communities use a fee-for-services style, or a la carte pricing, which means they charge a regular monthly charge for rent and meals but further costs for things such as medication management. Others could use a tiered pricing model where different degrees of treatment are charged different charges.

How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living Facility?

With so many options to choose from, finding the right assisted living community can seem like a intimidating task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors will assist -- they are knowledgeable in helping match seniors to the services that are the best fit for their care needs, personality and price range.

Here are some things to remember at the time of your search:

  • Be sure to search for your family member, not you. Today’s assisted living communities offer everything from homey environments to high end resort-style grand living. It could be easy to be influenced by the features and experiences you might decide for yourself, but ultimately it boils down to what will work best for your family member.
  • Focus on the present, not the past. Does your loved one need help washing and dressing? Do they have special needs like limited vision or special diets? Would they benefit from the benefits of a larger facility or be more comfortable in a smaller, more intimate setting?
  • Take into account the here and today, not what might have been their choice ten or 15 years ago.
  • Intend to tour at least 3 to 5 communities, if you possibly can. Start with planned visits and consider having a meal with the residents. If none of them seems like a good match, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more options. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take notes while you’re there.

The task of deciding on the best assisted living facility could be overpowering, but there are resources which will help. Call A Place for Mom today -- we can help save you money and time and be sure you make the correct choice.
