Determining Your Best Options
When aging at home is not an option for seniors, an Assisted Living Community setting might be appropriate for them, in order to identify which setting is best for our clients, we perform a comprehensive assessment which includes; Fall Risk Evaluation, Geriatric Depression evaluation, Self-Medication assessment, Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s), Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE), Pain and Skin assessments as needed. Having an independent assessment prior to placing the older adult is important for many reasons:
- Obtain an unbiased assessment.
- Obtain a baseline.
- Compare independent assessment to the assessment done by the community to ensure the correct services are provided and charged accordingly.
Things to Consider
Some considerations to be taken for Assisted Living options are finances, community’s reputation, team’s longevity, team’s training, services offered. Most communities charge for care separately, as your or your loved one decline you need to take into consideration the higher cost of care for the additional services as well as yearly rent increases. You want to ensure the community is able to care for you or your loved one through end of life to avoid having to move later.
