Getting Ready to Move to Assisted Living in Seattle

A move can be a complicated and stressful process at any stage of life, but particularly so when transitioning into long-term care. There are ways to make it easier, however:

  • Start by touring a prospective community before you commit. There's no substitute for seeing the interactions of the staff with residents, its food preparation and hygiene practices, and its skills at personal care and support with your own eyes. A tour can show you how well you or your loved one will fit into that community.
  • Get pre-assessments from your doctor and a candidate community's staff. It's important to have a clear and realistic idea of medical and personal care needs.
  • Plan the move early, and break it down into chunks. Starting early lets you tackle the sometimes emotional work of figuring out what to take or leave. It also allows you to organize the move and reduce the physical strain.
  • Recruit a support network. Avail yourself of all the friends and family you can muster, particularly if you or your loved need physical help with the tasks of moving. A senior move manager can also help in supporting and organizing your move.

What’s the Difference Between Assisted Living and Other Senior Care Types?

One distinction between assisted living and other types of long-term care is that assisted living sits between independent living and skilled nursing facilities, also known as called nursing homes.

There are plenty of options for long-term care, and Washington only licenses some of them. Understanding the differences is important in helping choose the right option.

  • In-home care is a popular alternative, as it's not uncommon to prefer to age at home. This model provides for caregivers to visit the resident in their home and provide needed support at many different possible levels. Washington offers many different programs to enable this.

The types of long-term care licensed by the state include assisted living communities along with following:

  • Nursing homes provide 24-hour supervised nursing care, therapy and personal care, social services, and nutrition management. This is an option for those with more intensive medical needs.
  • Adult Family Homes are regular neighborhood homes with a staff, typically providing ARC.

Not licensed by the state are:

  • Independent living communities made for aging citizens who are healthy, alert, and aware enough to live on their own with minimal supervision.
  • Continuing Care Retirement Communities offer a range of long-term care solutions from assisted living through nursing home levels of care on the same campus.
