Assisted Living in Newport News, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is normally a long lasting senior care option including help with the routines of everyday living like providing meals, assistance with bathing, dressing and medication management. It is not the same as a nursing facility, where residents receive round-the-clock professional nursing care. Every assisted living community has its own mix of offerings, amenities, activities and lifestyle. Many also offer assistance for seniors with particular requirements for example diabetes, incontinence services or the initial stages of cognitive impairment as a result of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Assisted Living Vs. Memory Care

According to the National Center for assisted living, nearly one in 4 residents currently in assisted living in the state of Virginia experience Alzheimer’s disease or another kind of dementia. In addition many assisted living communities give support for people with cognitive issues. So how do you know if memory care or simply assisted living is specifically what your family member needs?

Although some assisted living communities offer memory care onsite, the two types of care won't be precisely the same. Memory care provides full-time specific help for somebody with dementia while assisted living is designed to meet the requirements of people who need assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, getting dressed or eating. assisted living could be a good choice for individuals in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s but for individuals who have wandering concerns or who have caused injury to themselves or others, a secured memory care environment is most probably the best choice.

If you have particular questions about what kind of services your loved one would need, speak to a doctor. They can help you determine whether assisted living will continue to 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 family members with questions about what type of care is the best fit for their relative or friend and they can help you also.

What Services are available in Assisted Living?

While each community is unique, most assisted living facilities offer a selection of living arrangements, a wide variety of dining choices, public areas and free transportation, among other services and amenities. These can include:

  • Activities, entertainment and events both on-site and off
  • Fitness and wellness programs
  • Housekeeping, including linen service
  • Connect to medical specialists

Assisted Living Inspections and Rankings in Virginia

The state of Virginia offers exceptional access to its records for assisted living communities through the Virginia Department of Social Services website. Data available to review includes the dates of inspection, whether an inspection was prompted by a complaint, if the inspector found any violations and what the program 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 facilities 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 bedrooms that have adjoining bathrooms with signaling devices that residents can use in case they need assistance.

How to Finance Assisted Living

Many families finance a move to assisted living through the sale of a home or personal financial savings, but for some individuals, this might not even be a choice. Listed here are three other assets that can assist you in financing assisted living:

  • Veterans Benefits: Many seniors may be eligible for veterans benefits that they aren't aware of. One benefit specifically, 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 and have served at least 90 days of active duty with at least 1 day during what the Veterans Administration considers active wartime time periods. Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans can also be qualified to receive benefits. With the average age group of U.S. veterans at 64 years old it’s worthwhile to find out if your family member may be eligible for benefits. See our Guide to VA Benefits and Long-Term Care for information or get in touch with the Virginia Department of Veterans Services or visit the Veterans Information for Virginia or the U.S. Veteran's web page at va.gov.
  • Life Insurance Policies: If the senior you are supporting with their move to assisted living has a life insurance policy, you might be able to liquidate the policy and receive payment now. Different limitations and rules apply depending on the type of plan you have, so get in touch with a monetary advisor or eldercare lawyer to find more about your alternatives and also to evaluate what’s most effective for your circumstances.
  • Reverse Mortgages: For senior couples and also require different care needs, a reverse mortgage may also be a good way one person to go into assisted living while the other spouse remains in the home. A reverse mortgage allows homeowners aged 62 or older to borrow on their home equity. For more information about reverse mortgages, get in touch with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to get a reverse mortgage counseling company in your in your town.

5 Things to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Discovering the ideal assisted living community is a huge decision, both for a senior and for their family. Listed below are five things to consider when contemplating making the move to assisted living:

  • What is the staff-to-resident ratio? Can this community provide your family member with the support they might need? Based on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living communities possess a ratio of one personal care associate for every 23 residents. Staffing may differ widely depending on the size of the community, so be sure to question the facilities you are thinking about their staff-to-resident ratio.
  • Are there outside areas? For most residents making the change from their family home to assisted living means giving up a favorite garden or back yard, so being able to enjoy a gardening area, deck or a courtyard can be essential. Many larger assisted living facilities offer a selection of outside spaces with features for example , walking paths, raised gardening beds and BBQ areas for facility events.
  • How many staff members are available to assist residents at night time? Some assisted living facilities provide 24x7 nursing personnel, while others may only provide generalized help obtainable after hours. In Virginia, assisted living communities are required to provide at least two direct treatment providers awake and available at all times.
  • Does the city have a waitlist? Popular facilities fill quickly. If your favored community isn't accepting new occupants, inquire about a waitlist and the community’s policy handling the wait list. Most facilities will require a deposit plus some may have a different lists for special care needs. This is where doing your investigation can pay off -- plan ahead of time!
  • What providers are included in the monthly price? Before signing the agreement it’s important to understand what is normally included in the primary monthly fee and what's available for an additional charge. Some communities use a fee-for-service model, or a la carte prices, meaning they charge a typical charge for rent and meals but additional costs for services such as medication management or continence care. Others make use of a tiered pricing model where different levels of management are charged different charges.

How Do I Choose the best Assisted Living Community

With so many communities to choose from, finding the right assisted living community could be a daunting task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors can assist -- they are specialists at helping families match their family member's to the facilities which will be the best fit for his or her care needs, style and resources.

Here are some things to take into account throughout your search:

  • Make sure to look for the senior needing care and attention, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities range from homey settings to upscale resort-style high end living. It may be easy to be influenced by the features and activities you might enjoy for yourself, but in the end it comes down to what works best for your family member.
  • Focus on what family member requires today, not how they lived in the past. Does your loved one want help bathing and dressing? Do they have unique needs like limited sight or special diet programs? Would they choose the perks of larger community or feel more secure in a smaller, more intimate home? Consider the here and now not what could have been their personal preference ten or 15 years back
  • Prepare to tour at least 3 to 5 communities when you can. Begin with planned visits and consider having meals with the residents. If none of the facilities you visit appear like proper fit, check with your Senior Living Advisor for extra options. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take down notes while you’re touring communities.

Choosing the best assisted living facility could be complicated, but there are solutions to help you make that decision. Call A Place for Mom today -- we can help save you time and money and assist you in making the right choice for your loved ones.
