Assisted Living Communities come in all shapes and sizes and they all have the same goal: Happy, healthy Seniors!

Knowing which community is best for your health and budget can be overwhelming. Its important to talk with someone who really knows the facilities in your area and has experience with the health issues you face.

Knowing who youre talking to for senior care advice is important. At Care Connections, we have experienced local senior care nurses who can advise you on the best choice of a community based on your health diagnoses, goals and budget.

The advantages of a local senior nurse advisor include:

  • Experience working in senior care: sometimes in the very facilities you may be considering
  • Knowledge of state regulations and restrictions for admission and discharge
  • Knows what communities are looking for in future residents
  • Give recommendations on other community resources that contributes to a successful placement
  • Understands the unique physical and emotional stress of senior transitions.
  • Patient and empathetic listener
  • Laser focused on what is best in the short and long term interest of every senior they advise
  • Insight and knowledge that can only come with nursing experience
  • Often well connected to the healthcare community in general to have a pulse on the latest information

Seniors often equate Assisted Living Communities with Nursing Homes from the past with their parents or grandparents and thats not the case. Today, assisted living communities are nice, beautiful, fun places to spend time with seniors who are not bedbound and more independent.

  • Assisted living provides the following:
  • 3 meals a day and snacks
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry, including clothes and linens
  • Social activities
  • Medication management
  • Assistance with dressing, bathing, transferring, mobility if needed
  • Supervision, a caregiver available at the touch of a button 24 hrs a day
  • Transportation coordination
  • Safety

Often, spouses or children feel guilt or mixed emotions about placing their loved one in an assisted living community. Lots of time these negative feelings come from the desire to do whats best for the senior in their life. Its a fine line to walk between fostering independence and making sure their needs are met; Honoring their wishes and not allowing self-neglect. Can they manage safely at home or would it be safer in an assisted living community. Its not always a straightforward answer. Whether youre trying to decide if the time is right for a transition to a community or theres no doubt the time is here, Boise Care Connections can help you through all the mixed emotions and stress of senior care. Youre not alone and we are here to help. Take advantage of years of senior healthcare experience and knowledge in one easy call.
