Assisted Living in Potomac Falls, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a long term senior care solution that includes support for the activities of daily living such as for example meals or snacks, bathing, dressing and prescription medication administration. It isn't exactly like a nursing home, where residents can get round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living facility has its mix of services, experiences, activities and lifestyle. Many also provide support for seniors with specific needs such as for example diabetes, incontinence management needs or the first 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 seniors currently in assisted living in the state of Virginia experience Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Furthermore, many assisted living communities provide 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 facilities offer memory care onsite, each of the types of care won't be the same. Memory care gives full-time specific services 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 for example showering, dressing or eating. Assisted living can be a good option for people in the earlier stages of dementia but for individuals who have who have wandering problems or who have caused harm to themselves or others, a secured memory care setting is most likely a more suitable option.

If you have specific questions about what sort of care your family member requires, talk to a physician. They will help you determine whether assisted living will work or if you need to search for memory care. You may also speak to one of our Senior Living Advisors. They have helped many family members with concerns about what kind of treatment may be the best fit for their family member or friend and so they will help you, too.

What Services Are Offered in Assisted Living?

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

  • Activities, entertainment and occasions, both on-site and off
  • Workout and health programs
  • Housekeeping, including bed linen service
  • Access to medical professionals

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Virginia

The state of Virginia offers excellent access to its records for assisted living services through the Virginia Department of Social Services. Data available to review includes the dates of inspection, whether an inspection was prompted by a grievance, if the inspector found any wrong doing and what the plan of correction was to handle a violation.

Many families fund a move to assisted living through the sale of a house or personal savings, but for some people, this may not be an option. Here are three other resources that may help you finance assisted living:

  • Veterans Benefits: Many seniors may qualify for veterans benefits that they don’t know about. One benefit in particular, Aid & Attendance, has helped a large number of families afford assisted living. To meet the criteria, veterans have to be at least 65 years old and have served at least 3 months of active duty, with at least 1 day during what the Veterans Administration considers active wartime periods. Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans may also be in a position to collect 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 qualify for benefits. See 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 head to va.gov.
  • Life Insurance Policies. If the senior you are assisting transfer to assisted living possesses a life insurance policy, you may be in a position to cash out the plan and get funds today. Different restrictions and rules apply depending on the type of plan you have, so get in touch with a insurance consultant or elderlaw lawyer to find out more about your options and to evaluate what’s most useful for your situation.
  • Reverse Mortgages. For senior couples who might have different needs, a reverse mortgage can be a good method for one person to go into assisted living while the other remains at home while their spouse transitions to senior living. A reverse mortgage makes it possible for home owners aged 62 or older to borrow on 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.

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Choosing the best assisted living facility is an important 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's the staff-to-resident ratio? Can this facility offer your loved one with the support they want? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 25% of assisted living communities possess a ratio of 1 personal care assistant for each 23 residents. Staffing may differ greatly based on the size of the facility, so be sure to enquire about the communities you are interested in.
  2. Is there yard? For many residents making the changeover from an individual residence to assisted living involves letting go of a beloved backyard or outdoor area, so the ability to access a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is beneficial. Many larger assisted living facilities offer a range of outdoor spaces, with features such as for example strolling paths, gardens and BBQ spaces for community occasions.
  3. Just how many staff are on hand to assist during the night? Some assisted living communities provide 24x7 nursing staff, while others may have more general assistance on hand after hours. In the state of Virginia, assisted living communities must have a minimum of two direct care staff members awake and available at all times.
  4. Is there a wait list? Preferred communities can fill fast. If the main one you like isn't available, find out about the waiting list and what the community’s policy is for managing it. Many communities will require a deposit and some facilities have internal lists for special treatment needs. Here is where doing your research can actually pay back -- plan in advance!
  5. What assistance are included in the monthly fee? Before signing the agreement, it’s smart to understand what is covered in the basic charge framework and what might incur additional expense. Some communities use a fee-for-support model, or a la carte pricing, which means they charge a monthly fee for rent and meals but further charges for things like medication management. Others might use a tiered prices model where varied degrees of care are charged different costs.

How Do I Choose the Right Assisted Living Facility?

With so many choices to choose from, finding the right assisted living community can seem like a daunting task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors might help -- they are experts in helping match seniors to the facilities that will be the best fit for their care needs, personality and budget.

Below are a few things to keep in mind during your search:

  • Be sure to look for your loved one, not you. Today’s assisted living communities offer everything from homey settings to high end resort-style grand living. It could be easy to be swayed by the features and amenities you might decide for yourself, but ultimately it comes down to what will work best for your loved one.
  • Focus on the today, not days gone by. Does your family member need help washing and getting dressed? Do they have particular needs like limited vision or special diets? Would they enjoy the benefits of a bigger community or be a little more relaxed in a smaller, more intimate setting?
  • Think about the here and today, not what might have been their personal preference ten or 15 years ago.
  • Plan to visit at least 3 to 5 communities, if you're able to. Start with scheduled tours and consider having a meal with the residents. If none of them seems like a good match, ask your Senior Living Advisor for more choices. And don’t hesitate to ask questions and take notes while you’re there.

The process of selecting the most appropriate assisted living facility could be overpowering, but there are resources that will help. Call A Place for Mom today -- we are able to help save you money and time and be sure you make the correct choice.
