When is it time to consider a move to an assisted living facility?
Making the decision to move into an assisted living residence is not always easy, but it may very well be the best decision ever made -- for both seniors and their families. Families need to consider whether a family member can live alone. Often, social interaction is limited when one lives alone. Assisted living enables seniors to enjoy both social and recreational activities. Safety is yet another factor.
What is the difference between a traditional assisted living and a memory support residence?
Traditional assisted living provides assistance with daily activities such as medication management, eating, bathing and dressing, but with minimal supervision. Memory support residences cater to individuals living with such cognitive disabilities as Alzheimer’s and dementia. The personalized support services of both types of assisted livings enable residents to live in a safe environment while still maintaining a level of independence.
Will there be medical care available?
There are licensed nurses on staff seven days a week and as well as a Resident Care Director, who oversees all aspects of care, including medication assistance and communication with family and physicians. Nurses are available from 6am to 10pm. A Resident Care Director is on-site from 9am-6pm. In addition, all residents have access to on-site visiting nurse practitioners and physicians, although residents have the option of keeping their own primary care physician.
