Assisted Living in Poquoson, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a ongoing senior care option that includes support for the activities of daily living such as for example meals or snacks, showering, getting dressed and prescription medication management. It isn't exactly like a nursing home, where residents can get round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living community has its mixture of offerings, services, activities and lifestyle. Many also provide assistance for seniors with specific needs such as for example diabetes, incontinence management needs or the early stages of cognitive loss because of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Assisted Living Vs. Memory Care

Based on the National Center for Assisted Living, nearly 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 communities give support for seniors with cognitive issues. Just how do you know if designated memory care or just assisted living is what your family member needs?

Although many assisted living communities offer memory care onsite, each of the kinds of care won't be the same. Memory care provides full-time specific services for someone with dementia while assisted living is made to meet the needs of those who want help with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as showering, dressing or eating. Assisted living could be a good choice for people in the earlier stages of Alzheimer’s but for individuals who have experienced wandering issues or who've caused harm to themselves or others, a protected memory care environment is probably a better choice.

If you have specific queries relating to what kind of services your loved one needs, talk to a medical professional. They will help you determine whether assisted living will continue to work or if you need to seek out memory care. You can also talk to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have helped many individuals with questions about what kind of care may be the best fit for their relative or friend and they can help you, too.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

While every community is different, most assisted living facilities provide a variety of living arrangements, a wide selection of meal options, public spaces and complimentary transportation, among other solutions and amenities. Such as:

  • Activities, entertainment and occasions, both on-site and off
  • Exercise and wellness programs
  • Housekeeping, including bed linen service
  • Access to doctors

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Virginia

The state of Virginia offers outstanding access to its records for assisted living communities through the Virginia Department of Social Services. Data open to review contains the dates of inspection, whether an inspection was instigated by a complaint, if the inspector found any infractions and what the plan of correction was to address a violation. Look by by facility name or zip code to get the facilities in the areas you are considering.

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

  • Allow only two people to live in one bedroom
  • Provide handrails, non-skid surfaces and grab bars in every bath tub and shower
  • Equip all bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms with signaling devices that residents can use in case they want help.

How to Pay for Senior Living In Poquoson, 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 choice. Listed below are three other solutions that may help you finance assisted living:

  • Veterans Benefits: Many seniors may be eligible for veterans benefits that they don’t know about. One benefit in particular, Aid & Attendance, has made it possible for a large number of families manage to pay for assisted living. To be eligible, veterans have to be at least 65 years old and have served at least 90 days of active duty, with at least 1 day during what the Veterans Administration considers active wartime intervals. Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans can also be able to receive benefits. With the current average age of U.S. veterans at 64 years old, it’s worth it to discover if your loved one 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 to find out more or go to va.gov.
  • Life Insurance Policies. If the senior you are helping move into assisted living has a life insurance policy, you might be able to cash out the plan and obtain funds now. Different restrictions and regulations apply depending on the type of plan you have, so contact a insurance consultant or elderlaw lawyer to discover more about your alternatives and to assess what’s best 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 move into assisted living while the other remains at home while his or her spouse transitions to senior living. A reverse mortgage permits home owners aged 62 or older to borrow against their home equity. To learn more, contact the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to look for a reverse mortgage counseling agency near you.

For even more ideas about how to pay for your move to senior living, contact A Place for Mom to speak 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

Finding the right assisted living facility is a big decision, both for a senior and for his or her family. Here are five points to consider when thinking about making the transition assisted living:

  1. What is the staff-to-resident ratio? Will this facility offer your loved one with the support they need? Based on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living facilities possess a ratio of 1 personal care associate for each 23 residents. Staffing may differ greatly based on the size of the community, so make certain to ask about the communities you are looking for.
  2. Is there yard? For most residents making the transition from an individual residence to assisted living means letting go of a favorite backyard or outdoor area, so having access to a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is important. Many larger assisted living facilities provide a range of outdoor spaces, with features such as strolling paths, gardens and BBQ areas for community occasions.
  3. Just how many staff are available to assist during the night? Some assisted living facilities provide 24x7 nursing staff, while others may have more general support available after hours. In the state of Virginia, assisted living communities are required to have at the least two direct care staff members awake and accessible at all times.
  4. Will there be a waiting list? Popular communities can fill up fast. If the main one you like is not available, ask about the wait list and what the community’s plan is for handling it. Many facilities will require a deposit and some facilities have internal lists for special care needs. Here is where doing your preparation can really pay off -- plan in advance!
  5. What assistance are included in the monthly fee? Before signing the contract, it’s a good idea to understand what is covered in the basic fee structure and what might incur additional expense. Some communities employ a fee-for-support style, or a la carte pricing, which means they charge a monthly charge for rent and meals but additional costs for things such as medication management. Others may use a tiered prices model where different levels of treatment are charged different costs.

For more information about what to look for when going to an assisted living community, 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 seem like a daunting task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors might help -- they are qualified in helping match seniors to the services that will be the best fit for their care needs, personality and budget.

Here are a few things to remember during your search:

  • Be sure to look for your loved one, not you. Today’s assisted living facilities offer everything from homey environments to upscale resort-style luxury living. It could be easy to be swayed by the features and experiences you might decide for yourself, but eventually it boils down to what will work best for your loved one.
  • Focus on the present, not days gone by. Does your family member need help bathing and getting dressed? Do they have particular needs like limited eyesight or special diet plans? Would they enjoy the benefits of a larger facility or be more more comfortable in a smaller, more intimate environment?
  • Take into account the here and today, not what might have been their choice ten or 15 years ago.
  • Plan to visit at least 3 to 5 communities, if you possibly can. Start with planned visits and consider having a meal with the residents. If none of them seems like a good fit, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more options. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take notes while you’re there.

The process of choosing the right assisted living facility can be overpowering, but there are resources which will help. Call A Place for Mom today -- we can help save you time and money and be sure you make the correct choice.
