Assisted Living in Gloucester, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a long lasting senior care option including assistance with the routines of day-to-day living like providing meals, assistance with washing, dressing and medication administration. It isn't the same as a nursing home, where residents receive round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living community has its own mix of services, amenities, activities and culture. Many also give support for seniors with particular needs such as diabetes, incontinence care or the early stages of cognitive impairment because of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Assisted Living Vs. Memory Care

According to the National Center for assisted living, almost one in four residents presently in assisted living in the state of Virginia experience Alzheimer’s disease or an additional kind of dementia. Furthermore many assisted living facilities provide support for people with cognitive issues. So how do you know if memory care or just assisted living is exactly what your loved one requires?

Although some assisted living facilities offer memory care onsite, the two types of care will not be exactly the same. Memory care provides full-time dedicated assistance for someone with dementia while assisted living is designed to fulfill the requirements of individuals who want assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs) such as for example bathing, getting dressed or eating. assisted living can be a good choice for those in the beginning levels of Alzheimer’s but for people who have wandering problems or who have caused injury to themselves or others, a protected memory care environment is most probably a much better choice.

If you have particular questions as to what type of services your loved one would need, speak to a physician. They can help you decide whether assisted living will continue to work or if you need to search for memory care. You can also speak to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have helped many loved ones with questions as to what type of care may be the best fit for his or her family member or friend and they will help you too.

What Services are available in Assisted Living?

While each community is different, most assisted living communities give a variety of living arrangements, a wide selection of meal options, common areas and complimentary transportation, among other professional services and amenities. These may include:

  • Activities, recreation and events both on-site and off
  • Exercise and wellness programs
  • Housekeeping, including linen service
  • Have access to medical professionals

Assisted Living Inspections and Rankings in Virginia

Data available to review contains the dates of inspection, whether an inspection was prompted by a complaint, if the inspector discovered any violations and what the plan of correction will be to address any violations. Look by business name or zip code to search for the facilities in the areas you are thinking about.

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-slip surfaces and grab bars in every bathtub and shower
  • Equip all bedrooms which have adjoining bathrooms with signaling systems that residents are able to use in case they need help.

How to Finance Assisted Living

Many families finance a move to assisted living through the sale of a house or personal financial savings, but for a lot of people, this might not even be a choice. Listed here are three other resources to guide you in financing assisted living:

  • Veterans Benefits: Many seniors may be eligible for veterans benefits that they aren't aware of. One benefit in particular, Aid & Attendance, has helped a large amount of households afford assisted living. To meet the criteria, veterans are required to be at least 65 years of ageand have served at least 90 days of active duty with at least one day during what the Veterans Administration considers active wartime time periods. Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans may also be qualified to receive benefits. With the average age group of U.S. veterans at 64 years old it’s worthwhile to see if your family member may be eligible for benefits. See our Guide to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for information or contact the Virginia Department of Veterans Services or visit the Veterans Information for Virginia or the U.S. Veteran's website at va.gov.
  • Life Insurance Policies: If the senior you are supporting in their proceed to assisted living possesses a life insurance policy, you might be able to liquidate the plan and receive payment right now. Different limitations and guidelines apply depending on the kind of plan you have, so contact a financial advisor or eldercare attorney to discover more about your alternatives and to evaluate what’s ideal for your circumstances.
  • Reverse Mortgages: For senior couples and also require different care requirements, a reverse mortgage can also be a good way one person to go into assisted living as the other spouse remains in the home. A reverse mortgage allows property owners aged 62 or older to borrow on their home equity. For more information about reverse mortgages, contact the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to locate a reverse mortgage counseling agency in your in your city.

To get even more options on how to cover your proceed to assisted living, contact A Place for Mom to consult with a Senior Living Advisor today. Or download our guide Five Best Kept Secrets to Financing Senior Care.

5 Things to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Discovering the right assisted living community is an enormous decision, both for a senior and for his / her family. Listed below are five things to consider when thinking about making the switch to assisted living:

  • What may be the staff-to-resident ratio? Can this facility provide your family member with the support they might need? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living communities possess a ratio of 1 personal care associate for each 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely depending on the size of the facility, so be sure to ask the communities you are interested in about their staff-to-resident ratio.
  • Are there outside areas? For some residents making the change from their house to assisted living means losing a cherished garden or yard, so being able to enjoy a gardening area, deck or a courtyard is certainly important. Many larger assisted living facilities provide a selection of outside areas with features such as walking paths, elevated gardening beds and BBQ areas for facility activities.
  • How many workers are available to assist residents at night time? Some assisted living facilities provide 24x7 nursing personnel, while others may just provide generalized help available after hours. In Virginia, assisted living facilities must provide at least two direct treatment providers awake and available at all times.
  • Does the city have a waitlist? Popular facilities fill up quickly. If your favored community isn't accepting new occupants, inquire about a waitlist and the community’s plan handling the wait list. Most facilities will require a deposit plus some may have another lists for particular care needs. That's where carrying out your investigation pays off -- plan ahead of time!
  • What solutions are contained in the monthly cost? Before signing the agreement it’s important to understand what is normally included in the primary monthly fee and what's available for a supplementary charge. Some communities make use of a fee-for-assistance model, or a la carte prices, meaning they charge a standard charge for rent and foods but additional fees for options such as medication administration or continence services. Others use a tiered pricing model where different levels of care are charged different charges.

To discover more about what things to consider when visiting an assisted living facility, download our assisted living Residence Checklist.

How Do I Choose the best Assisted Living Community

With so many facilities to choose from, discovering the best assisted living community could be a daunting task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors can assist -- they are specialists at helping family members match their loved ones to the services which will be the best fit for his or her care needs, personality and budget.

Here are some what to take into account during your search:

  • Make sure to consider the senior requiring care and attention, not you. Today’s assisted living communities range from homey spaces to upscale resort-style luxury living. It might be easy to end up being influenced by the features and services you may like for yourself, but in the end it boils down to what is most effective for your loved one.
  • Concentrate on what your loved one needs now, not how they lived previously. Does your loved one need help bathing and dressing? Do they have unique needs like limited sight or special diet programs? Would they prefer the benefits of larger facility or feel more relaxed in a smaller, more personal home? Consider the here and now not what would have been their personal preference ten or 15 years back
