What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a type of housing designed for people who need various levels of medical and personal care. Living spaces can be individual rooms, apartments, or shared quarters. The facilities generally provide a home-like setting and are physically designed to promote the resident’s independence.

What is the Difference Between Assisted Living and a Nursing Home?

Overall, the main difference between nursing home care and assisted living is that nursing homes provide medical and personal care in a clinical setting, while assisted living primarily provides personal care in a home-like, social setting.

What is the Difference Between Independent Senior Living and Assisted Living?

Independent living communities primarily focus on serving the social needs of residents, as many are able to live independently without much support. Assisted living communities support those who need assistance with activities of daily living, while allowing residents to live as independently as possible.

Does Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

Medicare does not cover any cost of assisted living. It will pay for most medical costs incurred while the senior is in assisted living, but will pay nothing toward custodial care (personal care) or the room and board cost of assisted living.

What Are the Benefits of Assisted Living?

Personalized care
Assisted living facilities focus on each individual’s experiences, unique health needs, and personal preferences.

Safety and security
As a caregiver, one of your top priorities for your loved one is safety. When driving becomes unsafe, or you worry about their safety while cooking alone at home, it’s time to start thinking about assisted living facilities.

Social activities and engagement
Your loved one will enjoy a mix of social activities like book clubs and weekly socials or participate in art therapy and gardening—life-enriching activities that reflect their interests, meet their wellness goals, and encourage lasting friendships with fellow residents and staff.

Access to healthcare facilities
Assisted living facilities offer quality healthcare on-site, using an aging well model that looks at physical, mental, and overall well-being.

Comfortable, home-like setting
Your loved one’s assisted living community should look and feel like home. Ideal assisted living facilities are comfortable and calming while providing access to communal areas, outdoor settings, and more.

 

Independence and fun
Assisted living allows your loved one to live freely but also access amenities and services that make life easier and safer.

More free time
When your loved one moves to assisted living, they don’t have to worry about things like housework or home maintenance. Heavy cleaning, cooking, shoveling snow, maintaining the yard—these are all activities of the past.

Nutrition and dining options
Assisted living meals are designed specifically for senior health and nutrition. Talented executive chefs prepare meals that aren’t just rich in nutrients but packed with healthy, fresh ingredients and delicious too.

Peace of mind
You’ll rest easy knowing your loved one is well cared for and comfortable in a community where staff and residents are there for them and their needs. This same peace of mind is felt by your loved one, too.

How Do I Know My Loved One Needs Assisted Living?

  1. Isolation, Loneliness and Depression

More than just occasional loneliness, isolation and chronic loneliness can lead to severe health issues for many seniors.

  1. Decline in General Health

According to the AARP, more than 70 million Americans aged 50 and older have at least one chronic medical condition. With age, these chronic conditions require more care. It’s better for a senior to be in a care community prepared to prevent (and handle, if necessary) a crisis.

  1. Financial Issues

Seniors often find they cannot keep up with piling bills, online payments, and more with age. Noticing unpaid bills, an increase in collectors, and a growing pile of debt may indicate it is time to make the move to assisted living.

  1. Hoarding

Hoarding is more than just collecting a lifetime of memories. It’s dangerous, can increase the likelihood of falls and affects seniors between the ages of 55 and 95 three times more than adults between the ages of 34 and 44.

  1. Poor Hygiene

Cleanliness is crucial to overall health and wellness. Aging can make some seniors afraid to bath as nearly 80% of falls occur in the bathroom. Infrequent bathing and laundry, messy hair, dirty nails, and bad body odor all may indicate it’s time to seek assisted living.
