When it comes time to choose an assisted living home, it is important to realize that senior living is not one size fits all. That is why assisted living homes come in different sizes, offer different services, amenities, and price points. You’ll need to find the right home to fit your needs today and your needs in the future.
Assisted Living homes:
- Are designed for those who need assistance with some or all of the Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s)
- Offer medication management and administration
- Staffed 24 hours a day
- Recreational activities and amenities
- Housekeeping and meal service
- Have common living space for residents to interact with one another
6 Factors to Consider:
To determine if an assisted living home is the right level of care for you, there are 6 factors to consider according to US News & World Report.
- Services offered
- Ability to transition to higher level of care
While these factors may seem straight forward, the ability to transition to a higher level of care is commonly overlooked. As you choose an assisted living home, it is easy to focus on one that meets your care needs today. Don’t forget to focus on your needs of the future. As you need more help in your day-to-day life, will your senior care home be able to offer you the care you need? Will you be forced to move to a new facility? Will they charge you additional fees when your care level changes? Having the answers to these questions when you choose an assisted living home is extremely important.
