Assisted Living means just what it says, assistance with daily living. This includes support with medication management, bathing, dressing, cognitive support, incontinence care, assistance with transfers, etc.
Larger apartment style Assisted Living communities have a campus or hotel feel, including dining rooms offering delicious food, with wait staff to take your order, and other amenities such as beauty salons, gyms, pools, libraries and in-house entertainment. Transportation to outside events, such as the symphony, movie theaters, shopping and other activities is also provided.
Apartments vary in size from studios to two-bedroom, two bath designs.
Private homes, often referred to as “Board and Care” Homes are another option. These are smaller homes which are particularly beneficial for Seniors who require more advanced assistance with their Activities of Daily Living. Residents receive more one-on-one attention as these homes are typically limited to six residents per home. They are beautiful and homey settings providing a family environment. All have sunlit rooms and lovely gardens for people to relax and enjoy. Please note the majority are set up so that residents never have to move again. They may comfortably “age in place” with the support of end of life Hospice care if needed.
All homes are also closely monitored and regulated by the State. We receive all reports generated by the State and review every one to ensure the utmost safety and care is consistently provided to all residents, no matter where they reside.
The cost for Assisted Living begins at approximately $4,000 and increases according to the level of care needed. Average cost is typically $6,000 monthly.
