Assisted Living in Chantilly, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a long-term senior living solution which includes support for the activities of daily living such as for example meals or snacks, bathing, dressing and medication supervision. 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 mix of services, amenities, activities and lifestyle. Many also provide assistance for seniors with specific needs such as diabetes, incontinence management needs or the first levels of cognitive impairment 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 experience Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Furthermore, 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 family member needs?

Although many assisted living communities offer memory care onsite, the two kinds of care won't be the same. Memory care will provide full-time specialized services for someone with Alzheimer's while assisted living is made to meet the needs of people who need help with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as for example showering, dressing or dining. Assisted living could be a good option for people in the earlier levels of Alzheimer’s but for individuals who have experienced wandering issues or who've caused harm to themselves or others, a secured memory care setting is probably a better choice.

When you have specific questions relating to what kind of care your family member requires, speak to a physician. They will help you determine whether assisted living will work or if you want to seek out memory care. You can also speak to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have helped many individuals with questions about what kind of treatment may be the best fit for his or her relative or friend and so they will help you, too.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Choosing the best assisted living community is an important decision, both for a senior and for his or her family. Listed below are five points to consider when thinking about making the transition 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 have a ratio of 1 personal care assistant for every 23 residents. Staffing may differ greatly based on the size of the community, so be certain to ask about the facilities you are interested in.
  2. Is there yard? For many residents making the changeover from a private home to assisted living means letting go of a beloved garden or outdoor area, so the ability to access a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is beneficial. Many larger assisted living facilities provide a range of outdoor spaces, with features such as for example walking paths, gardens and BBQ spaces for community events.
  3. How many staff are on hand to assist during the night? Some assisted living facilities provide 24x7 nursing staff, while others may have more general assistance available 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. Will there be a waiting list? Preferred communities can fill up fast. If the main one you like is not available, inquire about the wait list and what the community’s policy is for handling it. Many communities will require a deposit many communities have internal lists for special treatment needs. Here is where doing your homework can really pay back -- plan ahead!
  5. What solutions are contained in the monthly fee? Before signing the agreement, it’s a good idea to understand what is included in the basic charge structure and what might incur additional expense. Some facilities employ a fee-for-support model, or a la carte pricing, which means they charge a regular monthly fee for rent and meals but supplemental costs for things such as medication management. Others might use a tiered prices model where different degrees 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 assist -- they are qualified in helping match seniors to the services that are the best fit for his or her care needs, personality and price range.

Below are a few things to remember at the time of your search:

  • Make sure to search for your family member, not you. Today’s assisted living communities offer everything from homey environments to upscale resort-style grand living. It could be easy to be swayed by the features and amenities you might choose for yourself, but ultimately it boils down to what will work best for your loved one.
  • Focus on the present, not the past. Does your family member need help washing and dressing? Do they have particular needs like limited eyesight or special diet plans? Would they enjoy the benefits of a larger facility or be a little more relaxed in a smaller, more intimate setting?
  • Take into account the here and now, not what might have been their choice ten or 15 years back.
  • Plan to tour at least three to five facilities, if you possibly can. Start with planned tours and consider having a meal with the residents. If none of them seems like a good fit, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more options. And don’t be reluctant to ask questions and take down notes while you’re there.
