Autumn’s Promise – Assisted Living Facilities – January 2017

Assisted living facilities provide residents independence as well as personalized care, although services and amenities vary.


Assisted living facilities provide residents long-term care, offering housing, support services and health care, as needed. These communities are known for offering resident-centered care that meets an individual’s daily living needs.

 

Typical services include:

  • Assistance with everyday activities, including eating, bathing, dressing and toileting
  • Medication management
  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • Access to health and medical services
  • Transportation
  • Social and recreational activities to enhance quality of life
  • 24-hour security

While most assisted living facilities promote independence and offer personalized care, no two assisted living facilities are alike.

Some assisted living communities have a registered nurse (RN) on staff to provide residents a more advanced level care. Others have staff with limited nursing training.

In some cases, an assisted living facility can accommodate a resident’s changing needs. Rather than requiring a senior to move to a new home when his or her care demands increase, the staff can adjust their support services so residents can age in place.

Alzheimer’s and memory care is often critical for seniors as they age. Assisted living facilities that specialize in Alzheimer’s and memory care—especially those that have designated areas within the community to meet the residents’ needs—provides peace of mind for families.

Concerned you won’t have enough space? Search for an assisted living community with suites—a separate kitchen area and/or a room in addition to a bedroom.

Or, can’t imagine saying goodbye to a beloved when moving into an assisted living facility? Some communities allow seniors to bring along a pet.

When evaluating senior living options, consider the services provided, level of care required and the type of environment that best fits your needs.
