As the aging process progresses, many seniors require more specialized, personalized care. For many individuals, activities of daily living, such as medication management and personal hygiene, become difficult to manage on one’s own. To cater to these individuals’ needs, assisted living for seniors programs are designed to provide ongoing supervision and professional care based around personal abilities and limitations. If you’re considering senior assisted living, either for yourself or a loved one, below you’ll find more information about what these programs entail.
What Is Assisted Living for Seniors?
Senior assisted living falls on the more supervised end of the senior care spectrum, which includes independent living and memory care options. Assisted living for seniors provides ongoing, professional assistance for aging individuals who may experience difficulty in successfully managing the activities of daily living. Residents of assisted living for seniors programs have full access to a variety of amenities, including:
- On-site community dining options
- Provided housekeeping services
- Complimentary transportation
- Laundry services
- Personal hygiene assistance
- Ongoing, on-site medical care for a variety of health conditions
- Medication assistance
Depending on an individual’s current abilities and limitations, highly trained team members may assist with a number of daily activities. In addition to receiving support with activities of daily living, residents of assisted living programs also enjoy access to a wide variety of community-based recreational and social activities. In many senior living communities, team members create new activities each day to ensure that residents always have something fun to do.
Who Should Consider Assisted Living for Seniors?
If you’re unsure whether senior assisted living is the right lifestyle option for yourself or a loved one, ask yourself:
- Do you currently have one or more medical conditions that may progress over time?
- Have healthcare professionals or family members expressed concern over solo living?
- Do you experience any degree of difficulty conducting activities of daily living?
- Has the cost of professional, in-home care become a source of financial stress?
If you or your loved one can affirm any of the above, senior assisted living may be a suitable lifestyle option for your needs.
