Common Questions About Assisted Living Placement
Today, there are roughly 33,000 assisted living communities in the United States, and that number is growing everyday as people continue to age past 65 in record numbers.
Are you currently considering assisted living placement for yourself or a loved one? If so, today’s post is for you. Read on as we answer some of the most common questions people pose about the assisted living placement process.
What kind of training and credentials can I expect from caregivers?
Always Best Care Clinton Township upholds some of the highest standards for caregivers. All of our staff are fully employed – not subcontractors – and must undergo comprehensive training, background checks, and reference follow-ups. Moreover, all our employees are bonded, licensed, and insured, so you never have to worry about leaving your loved one in unskilled hands.
Though staff credentials will ultimately depend on your assisted living placement, we do not refer clients to facilities whose caregivers do not uphold our standards.
Am I too young for assisted living placement?
In short: no!
This is one of the most common questions we get about assisted living placement, which might have to do with the fact that these facilities are often referred to as senior care centers or elder care communities. Unless you are seeking a residence with strict age restrictions, these are misnomers.
In reality, younger adults make up a whopping 14% of nursing home populations. A recent report by National Public Radio identified more than 6000 young people under the age of 21 who benefitted from assisted living placement. And there are thousands more in their early twenties and thirties. Consequently, “senior care centers” are increasingly being referred to as long-term care facilities or skilled nursing facilities.
Unless you specify otherwise, you will only be referred to Clinton Township facilities that cater to all ages to ensure you have a strong social support system made up of peers to whom you can relate.
