Assisted Living in Fort Monroe, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a long-term senior living option that includes help and support for the activities of daily living such as for example meals, bathing, dressing and prescription medication supervision. It is not the same as a nursing home, where residents can get round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living facility has its own mixture of services, features, activities and culture. Many also provide support for seniors with particular needs such as diabetes, incontinence care needs or the first stages of cognitive impairment due to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Assisted Living Vs. Memory Care

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

Although some assisted living communities offer memory care onsite, each of the kinds of care are not the same. Memory care provides full-time specific support for somebody with Alzheimer's while assisted living is designed to meet the needs of people who want help with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as for example showering, dressing or eating. Assisted living could be a good choice for people in the earlier levels of dementia but for individuals who have who have wandering issues or who have caused injury to themselves or others, a secured memory care setting is most likely a better choice.

When you have specific questions when it comes to what sort of care your loved one needs, talk to a medical professional. They will help you evaluate whether assisted living will continue to work or if you need to seek out memory care. You may also speak to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have helped many families with questions about what kind of care is the best fit for their relative or friend and they will help you, too.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

While every facility is unique, most assisted living communities offer a variety of living arrangements, a wide range of meal options, public areas and free transportation, among other services and services. Some examples are:

  • Activities, entertainment and occasions, both on-site and off
  • Workout and well being programs
  • Housekeeping, including bed linen assistance
  • Access to medical professionals

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Virginia

The state of Virginia offers outstanding access to its information for assisted living services through the Virginia Department of Social Services. Data open to review contains the dates of inspection, whether an inspection was prompted by a issue, if the inspector found any violations and what the plan of correction was to address a violation. Look by by community name or zip code to find the communities in the areas you are considering.

In the state of Virginia, assisted living communities are required for legal reasons to:

  • Allow only two individuals to reside in one bedroom
  • Provide handrails, non-skid surfaces and grab bars in every bathtub and shower
  • Equip all sleeping rooms with adjoining restrooms with signaling equipment that residents can use in case they want help.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Fort Monroe, Virginia

Many families finance a move to assisted living through the sale of a house or personal savings, however for some people, this may not be an option. 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 specifically, Aid & Attendance, has helped a large number of families afford to pay for assisted living. To meet the criteria, veterans must 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 can also be able to collect benefits. With the existing average age of U.S. veterans at 64 years old, it’s worth it to find out if your family member may be eligible for benefits. Look at 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 for more information or head to va.gov.
  • Life Insurance Policies. If the senior you are assisting transfer to assisted living has a life insurance policy, you might be in a position to liquidate the plan and obtain funds now. Different limitations and rules apply depending on the type of plan you have, so get in touch with a insurance advisor or elderlaw attorney to find out more about your options and to evaluate what’s most useful for your situation.
  • Reverse Mortgages. For senior couples who might have different needs, a reverse mortgage could be a good method for one person to go into assisted living while the other remains at home while their spouse transitions to senior living. A reverse mortgage permits homeowners aged 62 or older to borrow on their home equity. For more information, contact the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to find a reverse mortgage counseling agency in your area.

For even more ideas about how to pay for your move to senior living, contact A Place for Mom to talk to a Senior Living Advisor today. Or find more information on our 5 Best-Kept Secrets to Financing Senior Care web page.

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Choosing the best assisted living community is a big decision, both for a senior and for their family. Listed below are five points to consider when thinking about making the move to assisted living:

  1. What's the staff-to-resident ratio? Will this community provide your loved one with the support they want? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living facilities possess a ratio of 1 personal care assistant for each 23 residents. Staffing can vary greatly based on the size of the facility, so make sure to enquire about the communities you are looking for.
  2. Is there outdoor space? For most residents making the transition from a private home to assisted living involves leaving behind a beloved garden or outdoor space, so having access to a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is important. Many larger assisted living facilities offer a range of yards, with features such as walking paths, gardens and BBQ areas for facility events.
  3. How many staff are available to assist during the night? Some assisted living facilities provide 24x7 nursing staff, while others may have more generalized help on hand after hours. In the state of Virginia, assisted living facilities are required to have at the least two direct care staff members awake and accessible at all times.
  4. Is there a waiting list? Popular facilities can fill fast. If the one you like is not available, inquire about the wait list and what the facillity’s plan is for handling it. Many communities will require a deposit many facilities have internal lists for special care needs. Here is where doing your homework can actually pay off -- plan in advance!
  5. What solutions are included in the monthly fee? Before signing the agreement, it’s a good idea to understand what is covered in the basic charge framework and what might incur additional cost. Some communities employ a fee-for-services model, or a la carte pricing, which means they charge a regular fee for rent and meals but further charges for things like medication management. Others could use a tiered prices model where different levels of care are charged different fees.

For more details about what to search for when touring an assisted living facility, take a look at our Assisted Living Residence Checklist page.

How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living Facility?

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

Here are a few things to keep in mind during your search:

  • Make sure to look for your loved one, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities offer everything from homey surroundings to high end resort-style luxury living. It could be easy to become swayed by the features and amenities you might choose for yourself, but ultimately it comes down to what will work best for your family member.
  • Focus on the today, not the past. Does your family member want help bathing and getting dressed? Do they have special needs like limited vision or special diets? Would they enjoy the benefits of a larger community or be more relaxed in a smaller, more intimate environment?
  • Take into account the here and today, not what may have been their personal preference ten or 15 years ago.
  • Plan to visit at least three to five communities, if you possibly can. Start with scheduled tours and consider having a meal with the residents. If none of them seems like a good match, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more choices. And don’t be reluctant to ask questions and take down notes while you’re there.

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