What is Assisted Living?

An assisted living community in Austin, TX provides round-the-clock care to seniors in a residential setting. Assisted living communities vary widely in their size and amenities. Some consist of a few rooms within a single-family home, while others could easily be confused with a major resort hotel.

Within these facilities, seniors can stay as independent as possible while receiving help with mobility, transportation, housekeeping and medical care. Austin assisted living communities typically provide meals, often in a shared setting, so that seniors can enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle. With activities that include exercise classes, day trips, and social clubs, assisted living helps meet the need many seniors have for social interaction and friendship.

Services Available in Assisted Living Communities in Austin

Austin senior living communities offer a wide range of amenities and services to their residents. Seniors typically enjoy three meals a day, and some communities provide access to kitchenettes in the apartments or cafes in the property. Nonmedical staff is available 24/7 to help with medication, bathing, grooming, and dressing, and laundry service and regular housekeeping are typically included as well.

Most assisted living communities in Austin provide some form of transportation to help seniors get to medical appointments and run errands, and many also schedule day trips to local attractions, shopping, and entertainment. On-site amenities can include everything from indoor pools, outdoor walking paths and game rooms to libraries, beauty salons, and theaters.

Getting Ready to Move to Assisted Living in Austin

Before your loved one settles into an assisted living community in Austin, they need to undergo a couple of evaluations. The first one is handled by their physician. The doctor reviews your loved one's medical condition comprehensively, including checking all current medications and treatments. They'll also indicate whether your loved one has any special dietary needs.

The second evaluation is conducted by the staff of the assisted living community. Here, they're looking to see just how much help your loved one might need with the tasks of daily living. They want to understand how your loved one handles social interaction and what their mental condition is. They do this to see whether the assisted living community is a good fit for your loved one. In some cases, if the property isn't able to meet your loved one's needs, the assisted living staff may make recommendations for more appropriate communities.

Costs Associated with Assisted Living in Austin

Assisted living communities come in all sizes and price points, whether you're looking for very basic care or prefer a luxurious environment with all the amenities of a resort. Monthly rates tend to start in the $2,000 range and can rise as high as $10,000 per month if you choose the luxury route. Prices typically cover all accommodations and meals. In addition, nonmedical care and assistance with activities like bathing and medication disbursement are included, as are all standard housekeeping, laundry/linen, and maintenance services. On top of that, most assisted living communities offer a fair number of amenities and social activities that are also included in the monthly rate.

If you're looking for a no-frills lifestyle, you can find that easily at the lower end of the rate spectrum. This is an ideal choice if your loved one isn't interested in lots of amenities and perks but prefers a quiet life indoors. Many basic assisted living options feature smaller rooms, sometimes shared, but all the basic health care and comfort needs are covered amply by a well-trained staff.

Luxury assisted living communities pair resort-style living with round-the-clock, on-site medical care to provide the best that money can buy. Expect to receive personalized care, whether that means full-time nurses and doctors on call 24/7 or customized meals cooked to order. These high-end communities typically feature large apartments, plenty of chartered excursions away from the property, top-flight gyms and pools, and regular visits from health care providers such as physical therapists and podiatrists.

Balanced right in the middle are boutique assisted living communities. These facilities, which are usually moderate in size, do offer amenities, including exercise and enrichment classes, and you can expect to have a private room or apartment. High-quality meals with plenty of options help make life pleasant, and medical care is available 24/7 from certified staff.

When you work with our Seniorly Guides to find a home to love, this is always a free service for families. The Seniorly Guide is compensated directly from the community you eventually select in Austin.

Assisted Living vs. Other Types of Senior Care

Assisted living facilities​ sit in the middle of a continuum of care for seniors that has nursing homes on one end and independent living on the other.

Nursing homes, sometimes also known as skilled nursing facilities, are typically home to residents living an almost completely sedentary lifestyle. Many of the residents are dealing with memory loss at some level, and 24/7 nursing care is available to help with medical issues.

Independent living facilities cater to seniors who don't require medication monitoring or help with the daily activities of life. These facilities feature plenty of social activities and are ideal for the senior who wants to lead an active lifestyle.

Assisted living communities are right in the middle, providing a balance that offers help with daily services and transportation while encouraging seniors to maintain a significant level of independence.
