Assisted Living

ASSISTED LIVING

An assisted living facility is a senior living option for those with needs for assistance with daily living and care.

Assisted Living “AL”

An assisted living facility is a senior living option for those with needs for assistance with daily living and care. Its purpose is to help adults live independently as long as possible, in a safe environment. Aging at home is the option that most seniors prefer, but sometimes it is not the safest one to choose. If a person is unable to take care of their daily activity needs, like dressing, bathing, cooking, shopping, paying bills, and taking medications, it’s time to rethink aging in place.

 

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. Services are offered to assist residents with daily living. The services offered by assisted living communities vary from facility to facility.

 

Services often include:

  • One to three meals a day
  • Monitoring and administration of medication
  • Personal care, including dressing and bathing
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • 24-hour emergency care
  • Some medical services
  • Social and recreational activities available 7 days per week
  • Transportation to shopping: groceries, the mall, etc.
  • Transportation one day or two days per week to doctor appointments

 

Think about these questions:

  • Why do I want/need to change my living arrangements?
  • What daily activities do I need help with (bathing, dressing, toileting, eating, remembering medications)?
  • How often do I need help?

 

Very Important – ALL AL’s are called Assisted Living but they are very different from each other. It all depends on the type of licensing they have, which allows or DOES NOT allow them to provide certain services. Example: stand by assist, one person helps with transfers, two people help with transfers or using mechanical devices for transfers (Hoyer Lift), regular or sliding scale insulin administration for diabetics, etc. If your loved one is a resident in an assisted living facility and requires a higher level of care, including the things mentioned above, if the facility is not licensed accordingly, the resident and their family will receive a 30-day notice to move out. Our role in helping the families during the initial search process is to ask ALL the right questions and think ahead of possible care needs. We always want to make sure we help the families choose the best and most appropriate care facility.

NOTE – Some of the above care facilities are contracted with Medicaid, some are not. It is crucial to know what happens if a resident is running out of money. The facilities that are contracted with Medicaid, they set their own rules on how long someone needs to pay privately before they switch to Medicaid benefits. The range is between 6 months to 6 years. Some Medicaid contracted facilities accept new residents who are already on Medicaid.
