Q. What is Assisted Living?
There are a variety of senior care options available today depending on the level of care needed. Assisted Living is one such option that is best suited for seniors who need assistance with daily tasks, but are not dependent on others for medical aid. Assisted living communities offer some amount of freedom and privacy to residents while saving them the trouble of washing dishes, cooking, doing the laundry, and other daily chores.
Q. What Can One Expect from An Assisted Living Community?
Typically, assisted living communities are licensed to provide three levels of care depending on the resident’s needs—low, medium and high. Outside of usual tasks such as meal service and round-the-clock supervision, residents could get help with transportation, postal services, social and spiritual gatherings, exercise programs, emergency medical care, etc.
Q. How Can I Pay for Senior Care?
There are several options available to you with regard to senior care payment. It’s not inexpensive, so the key is to plan in advance. Consulting our specialist in a one-to-one scenario will help you understand better.
Q. What kind of research should I do?
In this ever-changing, fast-paced world, you can never know too much about senior care. Research typically includes reading books, looking up blogs, reports and articles online, talking to friends and family with seniors in a retirement community and visiting several senior care communities. It is crucial that you understand the philosophy of each community you are considering as that largely reveals their take on seniors’ health, nutrition, religion, political beliefs, comfort levels, etc. Ask yourself if this philosophy corresponds with your senior’s personality.
Q. Is there a cost for your service?
NO! Adult Care Advisors is a free referral service that will hold your hand through the entire process of and get you the best care for you or your loved one. We will use our resources and help you find the best fit -whether it is a home health aide because you or your loved one always wanted to stay at home or an assisted living that will promote social interaction. Since we feel that families are going through enough at this point of their lives, we do not want them to incur any additional expenses. We are reimbursed from the community. We receive the same amount from each community and if you go to a community where we did not recommend, we receive nothing aside for the satisfaction that we helped you through a difficult time.
