As stated above assisted living communities are residential senior care options that provides non-medical assistance with activities of daily living (“ADLs”). According to Investopedia there are “There are six basic ADLs: eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring (walking) and continence. A person's ability to perform ADLs is important for determining what type of long-term care — for example.”.
In addition to providing assistance with ADLs, most assisted living communities offer central dining, exercise programs, housekeeping services, transportation options and care supervision. Assisted living residents typically live in their own private or semiprivate apartments depending on their preference. Care needs for assisted living residents are assessed regularly in case there is a change that requires staff notification. Assisted living communities feature activities schedules filled with events to suit a variety of preferences. Families are encouraged to visit assisted living communities where their loved ones are residing. Loved ones are invited to special events and holiday parties designed for community residents.
Happiness also comes from a supportive and compassionate staff, independence and affordability. In many ways it's like a marriage. There are many choices, more now than ever, and so when selecting the right assisted living for you or your loved one, care, patience and research should be the number one priority.
