Assisted Living in Norfolk, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is normally a long-term senior care option including assistance with the activities of day-to-day living for example, providing meals or snacks, assistance with bathing, getting dressed and medication administration. It isn't the same as a nursing home, where residents can expect round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living community has its mix of services, amenities, activities and lifestyle. Many also give assistance for seniors with particular requirements for example diabetes, incontinence services or the initial levels 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 4 residents currently in assisted living in the state of Virginia experience Alzheimer’s disease or an additional form of dementia. In addition many assisted living communities offer support for residents with cognitive issues. So how do you know if memory care or just assisted living is exactly what your family member needs?

Although some assisted living communities offer memory care onsite, each of the types of care won't be exactly the same. Memory care provides full-time specialized assistance for someone with dementia while assisted living is made to fulfill the needs of individuals who want assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs) such as for example bathing, dressing or eating. assisted living can be a good choice for individuals in the beginning development of Alzheimer’s however for individuals who have wandering concerns or who have caused harm to themselves or others, a safe memory care setting is most probably the best choice.

If you have specific questions as to what type of care your loved one needs, speak to a healthcare provider. They can help you evaluate whether assisted living will continue to work or if you want to search for memory care. You can also talk to any one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have assisted many loved ones with questions as to what type of services may be the best fit for his or her relative or friend and they will help you also.

What Services are available in Assisted Living?

While each community is unique, most assisted living facilities give a selection of living arrangements, a wide variety of dining options, public areas and free transportation, among other solutions and amenities. These may include:

  • Activities, recreation and events both on-site and off
  • Exercise and wellness classes
  • Housekeeping, including linen services
  • Access 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 open to review contains the dates of inspection, whether an inspection was prompted by a complaint, if the inspector discovered any violations and what the program of correction is to address any violations. You can search by facility name or zip code to get the facilities in the areas you are looking in.

In the state of Virginia, assisted living facilities are required by law to:

  • Allow only two individuals to reside in one bedroom
  • Provide handrails, non-skid surfaces and grab bars in each and every bathtub and shower
  • Equip all bedrooms which have adjoining bathrooms with signaling devices that residents can use in case they need help.

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 resources to guide you in paying for assisted living:

  • Veterans Benefits: Many seniors could be qualified to receive veterans benefits that they aren't aware of. One benefit in particular, Aid & Attendance, has helped a huge 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 eligible to receive benefits. With the average age of U.S. veterans at 64 years old it’s worthwhile to discover if your family member may be qualified to receive 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 site at va.gov.
  • Life Insurance Policies: If the senior you are supporting in their move to assisted living has a life insurance coverage, you might be able to liquidate the plan and receive payment right now. Different limitations and guidelines apply depending on the type of program you have, so get in touch with a insurance advisor or eldercare attorney to discover more about your alternatives and also to evaluate what’s most effective for your circumstances.
  • Reverse Mortgages: For older couples and also require different care requirements, a reverse mortgage can also be a good method for just one person to go into assisted living as the other spouse remains in the home. A reverse mortgage allows homeowners aged 62 or older to borrow on their home equity. To find out more 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 city.

5 Things to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Discovering a suitable assisted living facility is a huge decision, both for a senior and for his or her family. Listed here are five items to consider when thinking about making the switch to assisted living:

  • What is the staff-to-resident ratio? Can this community 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 have a ratio of one personal care associate for every 23 residents. Staffing varies widely depending on the capacity of the community, so be sure to question the communities you are contemplating about their staff-to-resident ratio.
  • Are there exterior areas? For most residents making the change from their house to assisted living means giving up a favorite garden or back yard, so having the ability to have a gardening area, deck or a courtyard is definitely essential. Many larger assisted living facilities provide a selection of outdoor areas with features such as walking paths, raised gardening beds and BBQ areas for community activities.
  • How many workers are available to assist residents at night time? Some assisted living facilities provide 24x7 nursing employees, while others may just provide generalized help available after hours. In Virginia, assisted living communities are required to provide at least two direct care providers awake and available at all times.
  • Does the community have a waitlist? Popular facilities fill quickly. If your favored community is not accepting new residents, inquire about a waitlist and the community’s plan handling the wait list. Most facilities will require a deposit and some may have another lists for unique care needs. That's where doing your investigation pays off -- plan ahead of time!
  • What solutions are contained in the monthly price? Before signing the agreement it’s important to know what is included in the standard monthly fee and what's available for an additional charge. Some facilities use a fee-for-assistance model, or a la carte prices, meaning they charge a typical fee for rent and foods but additional charges for providers such as medication management or continence services. Others use a tiered pricing model where different levels of assistance are charged different fees.

How Do I Choose the best Assisted Living Community

With so many facilities to select from, discovering the right assisted living community can be a daunting task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors can help -- they are experts at helping households match their loved ones to the services that'll be the best fit for their care needs, style and budget.

Here are some what to keep in mind during your search:

  • Make sure to consider the senior needing care and attention, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities range between homey spaces to upscale resort-style luxury living. It could be easy to end up being tempted by the features and amenities you might enjoy for yourself, but in the end it comes down to what is most effective for your family member.
  • Concentrate on what your loved one requires now, not how they lived in the past. Does your loved one need help showering and dressing? Do they have unique needs like limited mobility or special dietary needs? Would they choose the perks of larger community 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
  • Prepare to tour at least three to five facilities if you can. Begin with scheduled tours and consider having a meal with the residents. If none of the communities you tour seem like good fit, talk to your Senior Living Advisor for additional choices. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take notes while you’re visiting communities.

Choosing the very best assisted living community can be complicated, but there are resources to help you make that choice. Contact A Place for Mom today -- we are able to help save you time and money and help you in making a good choice for your family.
