Assisted living can get you back to your old self faster if you or a loved one is recovering from an illness, injury or surgery. But what if you need short-term assisted living? Here are some reasons why a short term assisted living in Jupiter, FL might be right for your situation:
You’re Facing A Hospital Stay Followed By An Extended Recovery Period
If you break a bone and require surgery, if you have heart failure and need to be monitored closely in the hospital for weeks on end, or if you have another serious medical condition that requires intensive care for hours at a time but then requires only minimal monitoring in the weeks following discharge, it may make sense for your loved one to transition from hospital to assisted living before returning home permanently.
As many as one-third of all Medicare beneficiaries are admitted into skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) after being discharged from hospitals. In fact, about 20% of people over 65 years old who live alone will spend some time living in SNFs each year. The average cost per day is $200 or more — up to $800 depending on where they live — which means that many loved ones who are hospitalized spend thousands of dollars just staying put while recovering from their injuries or illnesses.
The good news is that short-term assisted living can help with these costs while providing care that allows your loved ones to heal properly without having them move out of their homes right away (or ever).
You’re Recovering From A Life-Changing Injury
Have you suffered a serious injury and are recovering? If so, you may need help with daily tasks like bathing and dressing. You might also need more complex assistance with driving or cooking. Perhaps the most difficult task of all is managing activities of daily living such as shopping and laundry.
In these situations, short-term assisted living can be an ideal solution for both your physical safety and peace of mind. This service offers on-site daily care that allows you to focus on healing instead of worrying about whether someone will come help out with these tasks when needed.
Your Family Is Juggling Ongoing Care With Work Responsibilities And Personal Commitments And It’s Starting To Take A Toll
If you’re like most families, your loved one who needs care is a parent. You may be caring for them at home or in a nursing home, but either way, it’s taking its toll on you. Your family members are worn out from juggling ongoing care with work responsibilities and personal commitments. They need a break from the constant stress of their situation—and so do you!
Here’s how these common scenarios play out:
- Your loved one isn’t getting enough sleep because they have difficulty falling asleep at night due to pain or discomfort, or they wake up early in the morning because they’re not able to sleep any later than necessary (even when they’re tired). This can cause fatigue which makes everything more difficult throughout the day. Plus, lack of quality rest can lead to depression; as noted above, this could eventually lead down an unhealthy mental health path that could negatively impact everyone involved in long-term caregiving duties such as yours.
- Your family member is stressed out about all their responsibilities—both personal ones like going shopping for groceries or doing laundry together; plus professional ones like handling finances responsibly while also making sure their loved one gets regular medical attention from professionals who specialize in elder care.
- You don’t get enough time with each other because there are too many tasks that need completing every day; plus work responsibilities mean even less time together should something come up unexpectedly on any given day which means if something does happen then there’s even less time available for everyone involved.
So, if you’re looking for a new temporary home while you recover from surgery, we hope this article has helped you better understand why short-term assisted living is the right option.
