Assisted Living communities have come a long way in the past few decades. Today's Assisted Living communities focus on letting seniors age-in-place in an environment surrounded by friends and fun activities while still getting the much-needed medical assistance and day-to-day care they require. Assisted Living is an excellent option for seniors that do not require a nurse to monitor them constantly as they are often much more affordable than a nursing home. As a resident of an Assisted Living community, seniors have access to social events, a community of their peers, and apartments and condos they call their own. Medical staff is on-site 24/7 to perform activities outlined by a resident's care plan, and staff is on hand to provide meals, laundry, and other services. Assisted Living is a great option when you want to enjoy life without the daily chores while getting just enough of a helping hand with activities of daily living.
Families that are caring for a parent at home with Dementia often find themselves in over their heads. The cognitive decline and behavior changes can be too much for adult children already managing their jobs and families. You are not alone. It is estimated that 1 in 6 seniors over 80 will develop some form of Dementia. One positive outcome from the growing population of seniors with Dementia is the added focus on research and treatment for those struggling with memory loss. New strategies based on this research are being implemented in modern Memory Care communities. The result is a Memory Care community that seniors enjoy living in. With increased focus on reducing challenges for Dementia patients, we find that anxiety levels are significantly reduced, and they live much happier lives.
Are you a senior looking for an upgrade in your quality of life? For seniors that are active, healthy, and see their best years ahead of them, an Independent Living community might be just what you are looking for. Today's Independent Living communities are vibrant and exciting places, full of amenities and activities that seniors love to participate in. In an Independent Living Community, you can be as social and engaged as you want to be in the comfort of your own home without the stresses of daily chores like laundry, cooking, and yardwork. Independent Living offers upscale living quarters, four-start amenities, and caring and attentive staff to help you take the load off and enjoy more of your life.
When the need for around-the-clock monitoring and medical care arises, your family needs the assurance that a care facility can provide these services with expertise, respect, and integrity. We help families understand the complicated options when placing their loved ones in a nursing care facility. As senior care placement experts, we know the capabilities, staff certifications, and administration of local nursing homes and provide you with an objective understanding of their offer. We can help you find the best solution near you and educate and assist with the next steps your family needs to take after discharge. We will also help you understand how Medicare and Medicaid can play a part in paying for care.
Choosing a safer senior housing option, unfortunately, cannot be made by appearance alone. What is most important is something that really can’t be seen. It is "Can this community really care for your senior?" That's why CarePatrol's advisors complete a "Care Discovery" and base our recommendations on care options that can specifically meet your individual needs and preferences.Meet Your Local CarePatrol Senior Advisor
