Assisted Living in Farnham, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living can be a long lasting senior care option which includes help with the routines of day-to-day living for example, providing meals, assistance with showering, getting dressed and medication administration. It isn't the same as a nursing facility, where residents can get round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living community has its mixture of offerings, amenities, activities and culture. Many also offer assistance for seniors with particular requirements such as diabetes, incontinence care or the early development of cognitive impairment due to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Assisted Living Vs. Memory Care

As stated by the National Center for assisted living, approximately one in four residents currently in assisted living in the state of Virginia already have Alzheimer’s disease or another kind of dementia. Furthermore many assisted living facilities give support for people with cognitive issues. So how do you know if memory services or just assisted living is exactly what your family member would need?

Although some assisted living facilities offer memory care onsite, the two types of care will not be precisely the same. Memory care provides full-time dedicated support for somebody with dementia while assisted living is designed to meet the needs of people who need help with the activities of daily living (ADLs) such as for example bathing, dressing or dining. assisted living can be a good choice for those in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s however for people who have wandering problems or who have caused injury to themselves or others, a secured memory care setting is most likely the best choice.

If you have particular questions as to what kind of services your loved one needs, talk to a doctor. They will help you evaluate whether assisted living will continue to work or if you want to seek out memory care. You can talk to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have assisted many loved ones with questions about what type of care is the best fit for their family member or friend and they will help you also.

What Services are available in Assisted Living?
