When it comes to making a decision to move into a senior living community, a multitude of questions may appear in your mind: What are the different senior living options? What is assisted living? Who is suitable for assisted living? What services and amenities are provided in an assisted living community? Let us help you answer these questions! If you are considering the assisted living option, we have prepared an Assisted Living 101 guide – here’s what you need to know about assisted living.
What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living is a senior living option that promotes dignity and independence in a home-like, safe environment for their residents. The residents receive personalized assistance with tasks of daily living such as bathing, dressing, medication monitoring and evening care to cater to their personal needs. In assisted living communities, residents get to enjoy their independence in a private apartment with the additional convenience of housekeeping, laundry and maintenance services, as well as full access to the community’s resort-style amenities such as dining, recreation, transportation and entertainment.
What Type of Services are Provided in an Assisted Living Community?
On a daily basis, residents staying in assisted living communities are provided meals and personal care assistance such as medication reminders and help with personal hygiene, dressing and showering. The community also provides trash removal, laundering of bed linens and towels, apartment and housekeeping maintenance services to ensure that the community environment is clean and safe from any hazards for the residents.
Other additional services and amenities that assisted living residents can benefit from include:
- Regular wellness and health assessments
- Personalized medical care plans
- A calendar of cultural events and social activities
- 24/7 nursing care
- Safety and emergency response monitoring
- Transferring and mobility assistance
- Transportation to medical appointments, events, dinner reservations, as well as day trips
When Should You Consider Moving into an Assisted Living Community?
Assisted living communities are a great option for seniors who do not wish to live alone, but do not want to rely on their family for medical care or daily assistance at the same time – they require some assistance with daily activities and personal care such as dressing, medication reminders and housekeeping. In an assisted living community, seniors get to live a carefree life without having to worry about shopping for groceries, home maintenance, and cooking on a day-to-day basis. Usually, residents in assisted living communities are not in need of complicated medical care. At Veranda Club, our professional team will assess your health status before recommending the best senior living option for you.
