When it comes to your loved one, finding the best environment for them or the place where they will be happiest can be difficult. Assisted living facilities may provide one of the best options. Assisted living facilities make great efforts to care for their residents’ physical and mental health.
Here are some reasons why you should consider such facilities for your elderly loved one:
- Help with daily activities
Seniors find it increasingly difficult to manage their day-to-day activities as they grow older. Assisted living facilities help seniors with daily chores such as dressing, bathing, eating, personal care needs and general household care.
- Help with getting proper medications:
Assisted Living Facilities help their residents take their medications on time and in doctor prescribed dosage. Without such assistance older adults can experience major health consequences; especially those who are diabetic or hypertensive. Often such daily monitoring of medication is not possible at home.
- Social life:
Seniors often feel alone as they age, which can lead to depression and poor health. The Assisted living facilities ensure that residents get to live in a supportive and loving community with healthy socialization and a variety of activities that interest them.
- Help with Health-Related Issues:
Seniors with special health conditions, such as arthritis, deteriorating eyesight, or a recent Alzheimer’s diagnosis, require as much support as possible. Assisted living facilities train their staff to provide specific and specialized care services and transport their residents to Doctors Office visits or schedule them with rounding doctors in the community.
- Safety and Security Becomes a Risk
Assisted Living Facilities inspect residents' rooms for safety and provide a safety pull cord, bracelet or necklace to summon help when in need. As your loved one becomes frailer and more vulnerable to accidents such monitoring is extremely important for their well-being.
Senior Assisted living communities in have a variety of tools at their disposal to safeguard the safety and security of seniors, including:
- 24/7 staff presence and supervision.
- Surveillance cameras and panic buttons.
- Safety rails and handles in high-risk situations, such as stairwells and bathrooms.
- Increased activity:
Residents of assisted living facilities can partake in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities like stretching, bingo, board games, gardening, and cultural events, etc.
