Why Assisted Living Should Begin With An Assisted Living Placement Consultation
What Is Assisted Living?
Assisted living is a type of care provided in assisted living communities. These facilities are similar to nursing homes and retirement homes. However, unlike nursing homes and retirement homes, assisted living communities focus on a care-life balance in which the staff provides all the care their residents need while encouraging them to manage their own lives as much as possible. The staff at a retirement home (also called an independent living community) doesn’t provide care directly to their residents. Instead, the staff handles certain chores and maintenance, but that’s it. To receive personal care, residents of these communities have to arrange to have it provided by a third-party healthcare agency.
The staff at a nursing home provides quite a lot of care to their residents. Nursing homes are set up to help residents who have high level needs. Such residents are often incapable of exercising any significant degree of independence. But where should elderly Californians go if they need some care but can still largely manage their own lives? For these seniors, assisted living is the best option. Assisted living communities provide care to their residents without restricting their autonomy.
