Different types of Senior Living options
Thinking about a move to a Senior Living Community? There are different options available depending upon care needs. When deciding, it’s important to be honest about the assistance needed. Everyone wants to be as independent as possible, but many are often in denial about their declining health and physical limitations.
Independent Living provides services such as dining, housekeeping, basic cable, Internet, maintenance, activities, parking, and transportation. If a minimal amount of care is needed, home care services may be hired privately. Often, an individual must be able to walk or may use a walker. If using a wheelchair, they must be able to use it without assistance to move about the community and evacuate in an emergency. There are no care staff available.
Assisted Living is designed to help individuals with care while maintaining the highest level of independence. Some choose to live in assisted living because they are experiencing frequent falls or in case of an emergency but have few care needs. Others need significant care. Residents may leave at any time – to go out to dinner, on vacation with family, or even on a cruise!
Memory Care is a specialized type of Assisted Living in a secure area. It is designed to help those with a diagnosis of dementia who are advanced or exit seeking, wandering, or can no longer follow simple instructions. If an individual has memory impairment, it does not mean they must be in Memory Care. It does NOT mean a higher level of care – just increased support.
Skilled Nursing (also referred to as long term care) is appropriate if an individual is completely bedridden, requires continuous feed nutrition, needs a Hoyer lift, or requires adaptive devices to keep them in a chair, wheelchair, or bed. Medicare does not pay for long term stays. Payment is made through Medicaid or personal funds.
Rehabilitation (also referred to as short term) is for individuals in need of physical, speech or occupational therapy for a few days to a few months. Medicare can help to pay for the stay, but a co-pay may be charged.
We can help counsel to determine which direction is best suited for your unique situation. If you need more support in your home, we can discuss the different options to offer support. If your care and safety of you or your loved one indicates that home may no longer be the best answer, we can discuss the next steps. We can help you understand when to know it’s time to move to assisted living, the different types and cost of assisted living, how to have the conversation with your loved one, alternatives for how to pay for it, and more. If you live far from your loved one, we can also be your advocate in your absence.
