Finding An Assisted Living Senior Community
As seniors age, some can face health challenges at any point in their journey. Things like reduced mobility, complicated medication schedules, and reduced vision can make life hard and unsafe.
When you talk about senior placement, most family’s minds seem to instantly think of nursing homes. However, assisted living can be a much better option for senior placement when it comes to needing assistance in their day to day lives, but do not require any sort of particular medical care daily.
What Is Assisted Living?
Assisted living can be looked at as a long-term senior living community with optional care levels that are designed to assist seniors who need help with daily living activities and support with some other daily tasks.
Tasks can include things like laundry and transportation, as well as personal care and assistance with (ADL’s) Activities of Daily Living like bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting as needed.
If you were to take a look around typical assisted living communities, they will reveal something far different from clinical settings that many imagine when they think of retirement homes. Of course, each assisted senior living community is different.
In most, however, you will find convenient services, comforts, amenities, and enriching activities to ensure your loved one is provided with all of the help and care they need, in a place that feels like home.
