Assisted Living in Lake Ridge, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a long-term senior care option which includes support for the activities of daily living such as meals, showering, dressing and medication administration. It isn't the same as a nursing home, where residents can get round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living community has its mixture of services, services, activities and lifestyle. Many also give support for seniors with particular needs such as diabetes, incontinence management needs or the early levels of cognitive loss due to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Assisted Living Vs. Memory Care

According to 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. Furthermore, many assisted living facilities 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 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 made to meet the needs of people who want assistance with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as for example showering, getting dressed or eating. Assisted living can be a good choice for people in the earlier stages of Alzheimer’s but for those who have who have wandering problems or who have caused injury to themselves or others, a secured memory care environment is probably a better option.

If you have specific queries about what sort of services your loved one requires, talk to a medical professional. They can help you decide whether assisted living will continue to work or if you need to search for memory care. You may also talk to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have helped many individuals with concerns about what kind of treatment may be the best fit for his or her relative or friend and they can help you, too.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

While each community is different, most assisted living communities provide a variety of living arrangements, an array of meal options, common areas and complimentary transportation, among other solutions and services. These include:

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Finding the right assisted living facility is a big decision, both for a senior and for their family. Listed below are five things to consider when thinking about making the transition assisted living:

  1. What's the staff-to-resident ratio? Can this community provide 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 one personal care assistant for every 23 residents. Staffing can vary widely based on the size of the community, so make sure to enquire about the facilities you are interested in.
  2. Is there yard? For many residents making the changeover from a private home to assisted living involves letting go of a beloved backyard or outdoor area, so having access to a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is normally beneficial. Many larger assisted living facilities offer a range of outdoor spaces, with features such as for example strolling paths, gardens and BBQ areas for facility occasions.
  3. Just how many staff are on hand to assist at night? Some assisted living communities provide 24x7 nursing personnel, while others may have more general support available after hours. In the state of Virginia, assisted living facilities are required to have a minimum of two direct care workers awake and available at all times.
  4. Is there a waiting list? Preferred facilities can fill fast. If the main one you like is not available, ask about the wait list and what the facillity’s plan is for handling it. Many communities will require a deposit and some 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 charge? Before signing the agreement, it’s smart to understand what is covered in the basic fee structure and what might incur additional cost. Some facilities use a fee-for-support model, or a la carte pricing, which means they charge a regular charge for rent and meals but additional charges for things such as medication management. Others may use a tiered prices model where varied degrees of care are charged different charges.

It can be easy to end up being swayed by the features and options you might choose for yourself, but eventually 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 bathing and getting dressed? Do they have special needs like limited vision or special diet plans? Would they enjoy the benefits of a larger community or be a little more relaxed in a smaller, more intimate environment?
  • Think about the here and today, not what may have been their personal preference ten or 15 years ago.
  • Plan to visit at least 3 to 5 facilities, if you possibly can. Start with scheduled tours and consider having a meal with the residents.
