When a person lives in an assisted living facility what is one requirement of the facility?

Assisted living facilities support residents in daily living and maintaining a safe environment, while still ensuring they have a high degree of independence and freedom of choice. Let’s work together to find a great new home for you!

Does my parent need assisted living?

One of the most common reasons for looking at assisted living options is due to a fall, especially when living alone. Safety and security is often the most important reason for a move. Assisted living communities have 24-hour security, nursing care, and staff to make and serve meals, look after light housekeeping, and create social activities for a more fulfilling retirement experience. Let’s set up a meeting to discuss what level of care your or your parent need in a new home.

What services are offered in Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer fantastic services for you or your loved one. 24-hour experienced nursing care, emergency assistance, personal health care (toileting, bathing, getting up and dressed), socializing activities and chaperoned outings with friends, housekeeping, mobility assistance, and daily meal services. They often have hair salons, worship services, a library, fitness facilities, and communal gardens.

Does Medicare cover the cost of assisted living?

No, Medicare does not cover assisted living, nursing homes, or any other care options. We can look over some options to see if there is any financial assistance you could receive or to help you set a budget and visit communities in your price range. Please give us a call to set up a complimentary appointment.
