When caregivers search for assisted living communities for their family or loved ones, many of them are unsure of what to look out for. More often than not, many people are placed in a totally unsuitable community and later have to be moved to another more suitable one, resulting in relocation stress. It is therefore of paramount importance that caregivers are familiar with how assisted living communities work so as to determine which community is best suited to their loved one’s needs. Most assisted living communities identify the level of care their residents require based on the number of activities of daily living they need help with. The more daily activities they need help with, the higher the level of care they require.
Senior Assisted Living
If your loved ones require the help of a caregiver for bathing, chances are that they might also need assistance with performing other daily activities such as dressing, toileting, and ambulation. In this case, senior assisted living would be the most suitable level of care for them. Residents living in our senior assisted living communities will receive personalized care services such as bathing assistance, medication management and continence management from our 24-hour professional health and wellness team and onsite Medicare-certified home health agency. Additionally, we also provide an array of amenities such as an arts and crafts room, a movie theatre and an outdoor heated pool which allows our residents to live a rich and fulfilling lifestyle.
For your family members who are suffering from dementia or other memory-loss issues, assisted living communities that offer memory care programs would be the most suitable for them. Our SHINE® Memory Care curriculum, having received a national Certificate of Recognition from the Alzheimer’s Association®, is rated as one of the best in the country. Apart from providing residents with daily living assistance and medical monitoring, we also conduct fun and engaging activities throughout the day to keep them mentally stimulated. These activities are tailored according to every resident’s ability, and are non-competitive, failure-free and age-appropriate. For residents with challenging eating behaviors, such as not being able to focus during mealtime or frequent wanderer, our specialized “Food on the Run” program will ensure that their nutritional requirements are met.
