Assisted Living in Newcastle Washington

What Is Assisted Living?

Today, there are more senior care options than ever before. The level and type of care a senior decides on is dependent largely how much assistance he or she needs with their activities of daily living (ADLs). Assisted living is one type of senior care where people obtain support with ADLs such as washing, dressing, personal grooming, managing presciptions, and more.

Assisted living is normally confused with skilled nursing care however the two types of senior care are actually quite unique. In a skilled nursing community, also known as a nursing home, residents receive nursing health care 24 hours a day. In an assisted living community, residents typically have access to personnel 24 hours per day, but the facility also offers amenities like activities and outings while also encouraging a strong perception of belonging in a more active facility environment.

The number of care offerings offered in assisted living may differ with some facilities giving support for seniors with particular medical needs such as for example cognitive impairment from Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia, diabetes, or incontinence service. In terms of choosing senior living in Newcastle, WA, there are lots of points to consider, from the amount of care and help and support to standard of living, location, and more. Listed below are the key types of senior living possibilities:

  • 55+ Apartments/Senior Apartments: Senior apartments have an age limit of 55 or 62 and are just like apartments for people of all age groups. Also referred to as age-restricted apartments, senior condos, and senior cottages, this can be an ideal senior housing option for seniors who happen to be independent but wish for extra security and community who happen to be from the same generation.
  • Independent Living: Very close to senior apartments, independent living is a senior housing option for seniors who are active but want to are in a community setting with other seniors.

Will Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

Medicare can play an important role in paying for some senior health care but before committing to any senior care option, it is essential to know what Medicare can pay for - and what it will not.

It is important to note that Medicare covers only short-term care. This means Medicare will not cover long-term nursing home stays or senior living care. Additionally, Medicare typically will not cover memory care since the care necessary for dementia is considered long term care.

How to Pay for Assisted Living

When considering the price of assisted living, it is vital to see what's included in your monthly expenses. While many families experience sticker shock when starting their hunt for senior living, after considering housing costs and regular monthly utility bills, they may find that a switch to assisted living puts them financially ahead.

Regardless, how to pay for senior care can be an obstacle for care. Many families decide to finance a move to assisted living through the sale of a residence or personal savings, but for some people, this might not exactly be possible.

Here are three other possible choices that will assist you to finance assisted living:

  1. Life Insurance Policies: If the senior moving into assisted living has a life insurance plan, you may be in a position to liquidate the insurance plan and receive funds now to cover senior health care costs. Different constraints and regulations apply according to the kind of policy you have, so get in touch with a monetary advisor or eldercare legal professional to find out more about your alternatives.
  2. Reverse Mortgages: For senior couples who need different levels of care, a reverse mortgage could be a good way for just one spouse to move into assisted living while the other spouse remains at home. A reverse mortgage allows householders 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.
  3. Veterans Benefits: Many veterans are not aware that they are qualified to receive senior care benefits. One often overlooked benefit is the Veterans Aid and Attendance, that has helped a large number of families afford to pay for assisted living. To qualify, veterans must be at least 65 years old and have served at least 90 days of active duty, with at least one day during what the Veterans Administration considers ‘active wartime periods’. Qualifying widows and widowers of veterans may also be able to receive benefits. With the current average age group of U.S. veterans at 64 years old, it’s worth it to learn if your loved one may qualify for benefits. To find out more on benefits for veterans get in touch with the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs or go to www.va.gov.

5 Questions to Ask When Visiting an Assisted Living Facility

There is no question that selecting an assisted living community is overwhelming. However, considering these five important questions when considering making the move to assisted living can help you make a better-educated decision:

  1. Just how many staff are on hand to assist at nighttime? Not all assisted living communities have staff available around the clock. Some assisted living facilities provide nursing staff around the clock, while others may have more generalized help on hand after hours. If your loved one needs assistance at night, who'll be there to supply the assistance they need?
  2. Is there a waitlist? Here's where doing your homework can really pay off - plan ahead! Popular communities can fill fast. If the one you like isn't available, ask about the waitlist and what the facility's plan is for managing it. Many communities will ask for a deposit plus some facilities have internal lists for special health care needs. How would you get on the waitlist? And, if you opt to move someplace else, how will you leave the waitlist?
  3. Is there a patio space? Moving to assisted living will not mean you or your loved one needs to live without a beloved back garden or deck space. If accessing a gardening space, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is going to be very important to your loved one, search for a community that offers residents that space. Various larger assisted living facilities provide a range of yard, with features such as BBQ spaces, gardens, and walking paths for residents.
  4. What is the staff-to-resident ratio? 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 each and every 23 residents. Staffing can vary widely depending on the size of the facility, so make certain to ask about the features you are looking for. In the end, you intend to find out if this facility will provide your family member with the support they need.
  5. What services are included in the monthly charge? Understand what is usually included in the standard fee arrangement and what might incur additional cost before signing any contract. Some facilities use a fee-for-service model, or a la carte prices, which means they charge a monthly price for rent and meals but extra costs for things like medication management. Others could use a tiered prices model where different degrees of care are billed different rates.
