Assisted Living Options in the Manhattan Beach Area
Do you remember last time mom or dad fell and had to be taken to the hospital and then the nursing home. Do you remember how they resented their stay and wanted to get back home as soon as they could? According to CDC (Center for Disease Control), 1 out of each 3 older adults, falls every day in the United States. Many end up in the hospital with a broken or fractured bone. Some may have to transition to the Nursing Homes or Skilled Nursing Facilities for rehab and to gain their strength back and unfortunately a portion of the patients never leave the Nursing home, due to infections or other complications. The goal is to remain as healthy and safe as we can, so we do not end up with a medical need that will send us to the hospital or the Nursing Home.
Seniors living in Manhattan Beach and the other Los Angeles Beach Cities want to enjoy their older age in a lovely setting with good quality of life. They don’t want to spend their time in a medical facility around others that have ailments, such as a Nursing Home. And the truth is that seniors now have lots of options for their living arrangements.. So what are those options in Manhattan Beach and the surrounding areas?
There are many Assisted Living Communities around town offering variety of services and within a different price range. It is worth noting that what is considered a Retirement Community is different than an Independent or Assisted Living Community. A retirement Community does not provide personal care services . But what they do offer is a safe place to live for seniors where they don’t have to worry about maintaining a home; all the housekeeping and landscaping can be done for you.
Assisted living Communities on the other hand, offer different levels of care through their caregivers.. They are also licensed through the State to operate as an Assisted living Community. They do allow seniors to have independence in their lives, and through regular assessments adjust the level of caregiving as needed basis, so the individual stays healthy and safe.
