Assisted Living in Sedro Woolley Washington

What Is Assisted Living?

Today, there are more senior health care options than in the past. The level and kind of care a senior decides on depends largely on how much assistance she or he needs with their activities of daily living (ADLs). Assisted living is one kind of senior housing where occupants get support with ADLs such as washing, dressing, personal grooming, medication management, and more.

Assisted living is normally confused with skilled nursing care but the two types of senior care and attention are actually quite different. In a skilled nursing facility, also known as a nursing home, residents receive nursing care 24 hours a day. In an assisted living community, residents typically have access to staff 24 hours per day, but the facility offers amenities like activities and events while also encouraging a strong feeling of belonging in a far more active community setting.

5 Questions to Ask When Visiting an Assisted Living Facility

There is no question that selecting an assisted living community can be confusing. Nevertheless, considering these five important questions when thinking about making the move to assisted living can help you make a better-informed decision:

  1. Just how many staff are available to assist at night? Not all assisted living facilities have staff on hand around the clock. Some assisted living communities provide nursing personnel around the clock, while others may have more generalized help available after hours. If your family member needs assistance at night, who'll be there to supply the care they require?
  2. Is there a waitlist? Here's where doing your homework can really pay off - plan ahead! Popular facilities can fill fast. If the one you like isn't available, enquire about the waitlist and what the community’s plan is for managing it. Many communities will require a deposit and some communities have internal lists for special attention needs. How do you join the waitlist? And, if you opt to move somewhere else, how do you leave the waitlist?
  3. Is there an outdoor space? Moving to assisted living does not mean you or your loved one needs to give up a much loved garden or patio space. If having access to a gardening area, an outdoor patio or a courtyard is very important to your loved one, search for a community that provides residents that space. Many larger assisted living facilities provide a range of yard, with features such as for example BBQ areas, gardens, and strolling pathways for residents.
  4. What is the staff-to-resident ratio? In line with 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 may differ widely depending on the size of the facility, so make certain to ask about the features you are searching for. In the end, you would like to understand if this community can provide your loved one with the help and support they want.
  5. What services are contained in the monthly charge? Understand what is included in the normal fee arrangement and what might incur additional expense before signing any contract. Some facilities use a fee-for-service model, or a la carte prices, which means they charge a monthly cost for rent and meals but extra charges for things like medication management. Others might use a tiered pricing model where different degrees of care are billed different costs.
