Assisted living communities offer seniors the supervision and support they need for daily activities. In fact, in the past 25 years, this type of care has been found to be the fastest growing long-term care option for senior citizens. Some factors to use to determine whether it is time for your loved one to enter an assisted care facility include slow recovery from illness, suffering from a recent accident, noticeable weight loss, and a disinterest in activities.

Compassionate Support for Independent Living

The level of care and the types of services offered by assisted living communities vary, but they typically include help with activities like dressing, grooming and bathing, meal preparation, housekeeping and laundry, and medication supervision. Assisted living communities also partner with a patient’s health care providers to ensure their health, well-being, and safety.

The right services and level of support are determined by the reason your loved one needs to enter an assisted living facility. Health problems such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and macular degeneration or other vision problems necessitate continued assistance for daily life activities. Also, 42 percent of assisted living residents suffer from some form of dementia, and they need supervision by a trained memory care staff.
