Some Facts You Need to Know About Assisted Living
1. What Care Can It Deliver
There is no sharp definition for assisted living, even up until now where the number of assisted living facilities continues to increase. What we do know is that assisted living facilities can offer different levels of senior care. Some delivers lighter care, while others can provide care for those elders who are bedridden or who need help in their daily living responsibilities as opposed to nursing homes. The type of care delivered by assisted living facilities is frequently hinged upon the community’s licensing.
2. The Look And Feel Of Assisted Living Facilities Differ As Well
Aside from the varying levels of care, every facility has a unique personality. There are communities that have a more traditional architecture and more formal sensibility, as opposed to those that provide a home-like, practical ambiance. Some even include art decorations in their premises, while others are consistent in mid-century modern patterns.
Aside from their wide range of community designs, assisted living communities also come in different shapes and sizes – from large complexes in the suburbs, tall apartment buildings in the city, more intimate cottages and down to a modest number of resident populations. Smaller communities frequently deliver homey atmospheres, while large-scale communities provide a copious amount of recreational opportunities and other social activities.
3. Even Pets Can Visit – and Stay
Pets have many health benefits. And communities are starting to incorporate pets into their care rubrics. Assisted living communities recognize the value of your beloved seniors’ furry and feathered friends. Some communities have different restrictions as to weight limits and breeds. Some even have pets being only allowed on a case-by-case basis. It’s nice to do your research about these different pet policies. So if your seniors have pets, be sure to reach out on your prospective assisted living facility and ask about their pet policies.
