What is assisted living?
A residential facility that provides direct physical assistance with or the supervision of the activities of daily living, the self-administration of medication and other similar services to include monitoring resident activities to help ensure their health, happiness, safety, and wellbeing.
What are the benefits of living in an Assisted Living Residence?
Assisted Living Facilities are an ideal housing arrangement for elderly people who are in a transitional stage of aging. Often residents of these facilities make the change if living alone entails too much work or when help is required for daily activities but constant supervision or care isn’t necessary. The difference between assisted living and nursing homes is the autonomy and control residents have in their day-to-day lives. Allowing residents to continue acting independently is a key facet of assisted living.
Do you have a waiting list?
Do you allow pets?
Pets are allowed in the facility for therapeutic purposes; however, pets are not allowed to stay at the facility.
Can I still use my personal physician?
Can I customize my residence?
Yes. You may customize your living quarters.
How does assisted living differ from a nursing home?
A nursing home is a place for people who don’t need to be in a hospital but can’t be cared for at home. Most nursing homes have nursing aides and skilled nurses on hand 24 hours a day. While nursing homes and assisted living residences require help with some daily activities such as housekeeping or need reminders to take medications, residents of assisted living communities are more self-sufficient than individuals in nursing homes. Structured activities are also a feature of assisted living communities. These can include, for example, group outings, guest lecturers or social and recreational events.
What kind of environment can I expect at an assisted living community?
Each assisted living community has its own character resulting from design and location choices. Housing options also vary. Assisted living communities share a common goal of providing maximum independence in a safe, residential setting with individualized care and assistance. Residents can expect many opportunities for social interaction with family and life-long friends as well as new neighbors. Programs and amenities will vary by community.
Assisted living residences may be part of a retirement community, nursing home or elderly housing facility. Whatever the setting, assisted living offers the opportunity for residents to continue living as independently as possible with the benefit of a readily available support system.
Is public funding available to help low or moderate-income seniors with the cost of assisted living?
Yes. The majority of residents in assisted living communities pay for housing and services with private funds generated through the sale of the resident’s home, personal income and/or family support. Alternative financial resources may be available from state long term care programs. For former military personnel and their spouses, there may be assistance available through the Veteran’s Administration.
