Nine Services To Look For When Considering Assisted Living

Safety and health-care assistance are two of the more obvious services available from assisted living homes, but most facilities offer additional amenities that will appeal to potential clients. Explore your options to learn what you can expect from a retirement center.

Living Quarters

Given how important your personal space is, it's no surprise that assisted living homes offer a variety of living arrangements. Some units may just be single rooms while others may be full apartments with multiple bedrooms. You might have a private unit or a room that you occupy with a companion. Some apartments come fully furnished, while others require residents to decorate them. You may be able to choose between units with or without a kitchen.

Community Areas

Most facilities will have community areas where residents can gather for meals or activities. These common areas might be dining rooms, gaming rooms, libraries, sitting areas, or fitness rooms. It's best if these common areas are located in a central place that is convenient to all units.

Medical Care

Residents will have access to daily medical care, including medication management by health professionals. The facility staff will help with the ongoing maintenance of records. Generally, a staff member will provide coordinated health care from various professionals such as nurses, physical therapists, and occupational therapists. If a resident experiences memory problems, staff are on-hand to help with the ongoing monitoring and orientation of the resident.

Emergency Call Systems

People who live in assisted living homes will have access to 24-hour emergency call systems in their units. By pulling a cord or pushing a button-usually located at two locations, in the bathroom and near the bed or door-a resident can reach a staff person for immediate assistance. Transportation Services

Transportation services will chauffeur patients to appointments and outings. Most facilities have vans and drivers available to drive patients where they need to go, including doctor's appointments, shopping excursions, and other errands.

Wellness Programs, Activities, and Entertainment

No matter how old you are, remaining active is key to maintaining your health. Most facilities have wellness programs in place with planned social and physical activities for residents. Staff members and therapists will organize social programs such as games, outings, sing-a-longs, movies, exercise, yoga, and classes. Most facilities will offer a variety of activities that will appeal to a large group of people.

Daily Assistance

Some residents need more daily support than others. Staff will be available to help patients with daily needs, such as bathing, dressing, shopping, and home organization. This assistance can be provided on an ongoing basis and with little notice if the need arises.

Diet and Meals

Help with meals is a major component of assisted care. With advancing age, people's tastes often change. For this reason, many facilities offer innovative and imaginative menus for residents so meals continue to be enjoyable experiences. Some dining areas are managed like upscale restaurants with waiters and waitresses. Others have a more casual atmosphere, similar to cafeterias.

Housekeeping and Laundry

Help with housekeeping and laundry is another important benefit of living in a care facility. Staff members will be available to perform housekeeping tasks to keep units clean and well-organized. Staff will also help patients with laundry tasks.

There are many amenities to choose from if you're looking for an assisted living home. Take your time and consider the benefits that are most important to you. This will help you make the right choice when choosing a new home.
