Assisted Living in Rural Retreat, Virginia

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a ongoing senior care option that includes help and support for the activities of daily living such as meals or snacks, bathing, getting dressed and prescription medication management. It is not the same as a nursing home, where residents can expect round-the-clock skilled nursing care. Every assisted living community has its mixture of services, amenities, activities and culture. Many also give assistance for seniors with specific needs such as for example diabetes, incontinence management needs or the first levels of cognitive decline 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 experience Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. In addition, many assisted living facilities give support for residents with cognitive issues. So how figure out if designated memory care or simply assisted living is what your family member needs?

Although many assisted living facilities offer memory care onsite, the two types of care are not the same. Memory care gives full-time specialized support for somebody with dementia while assisted living is designed to meet the requirements of people who want help with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as showering, dressing or dining. Assisted living can be a good choice for people in the earlier levels of dementia but for those who have experienced wandering situations or who've caused injury to themselves or others, a protected memory care environment is most likely a better choice.

For those who have specific questions relating to what sort of care your loved one requires, speak to a doctor. 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 family members with concerns about what kind of care is the best fit for their family member or friend and so they will help you, too.

5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility

Choosing the best assisted living community 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? 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 assistant for each 23 residents. Staffing can vary widely based on the size of the facility, so be certain to enquire about the communities you are interested in.
  2. Is there yard? For most residents making the transition from an individual residence to assisted living involves giving up a beloved garden or outdoor space, so the ability to access a gardening area, a patio or a courtyard is normally beneficial. Many larger assisted living facilities offer a range of yards, with features such as for example strolling paths, gardens and BBQ spaces for community events.
  3. Just how many staff are available to assist at night? Some assisted living facilities provide 24x7 nursing personnel, while others may have more general help on hand after hours. In the state of Virginia, assisted living facilities must have at the least two direct care workers awake and accessible at all times.
  4. Will there be a wait list? Popular facilities can fill fast. If the one you like isn't available, ask about the wait list and what the community’s policy is for managing it. Many facilities will require a deposit and some facilities have internal lists for special treatment needs. Here's where doing your research can actually pay off -- plan in advance!
  5. What services are contained in the monthly charge? Before signing the agreement, it’s smart to understand what is included in the basic fee structure and what might incur additional cost. Some facilities employ a fee-for-services model, or a la carte pricing, which means they charge a monthly charge for rent and meals but additional charges for things such as medication management. Others could use a tiered pricing model where different levels of care are charged different costs.

With so many choices to choose from, finding the right assisted living community can seem like a intimidating task. That’s where our Senior Living Advisors will assist -- they are knowledgeable in helping match seniors to the services that are the best fit because of their care needs, personality and budget.

Below are a few things to keep in mind at the time of your search:

  • Make sure to look for your family member, not you. Today’s assisted living communities offer everything from homey settings to upscale resort-style luxury living. It can be easy to become influenced by the features and experiences you might decide for yourself, but eventually it boils down to what will work best for your family member.
  • Focus on the present, not the past. Does your loved one want help washing and dressing? Do they have special needs like limited vision or special diets? Would they benefit from the benefits of a larger facility or be more comfortable in a smaller, more intimate environment?
  • Think about the here and today, not what might have been their choice ten or 15 years back.
  • Plan to tour at least 3 to 5 communities, if you 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 choices. And don’t be reluctant to ask questions and take notes while you’re there.

The task of selecting the most appropriate assisted living facility could be overpowering, but there are assets that can 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.
