What is Assisted Living?
Assisted Living is a long-term care option for seniors who want to live as independently as possible, but still need help with daily activities, such as housekeeping and preparing meals. Assisted Living services also provide for medical needs such as medication management, wound care and physical therapy.
Who Should Explore Assisted Living?
Seniors in the transition between independent living and full-time nursing care are well-suited for assisted living.
Whether you're living at home by yourself, staying with family, or residing in an independent living community, you'll reach a point where you just need a little extra attention. Maybe you can't get around as easily as you once could. Perhaps you're forgetting to take your medication as scheduled. Transitioning into an assisted living community will give you the help you need and let you maintain a sense of independence.
Signs that it's time to explore your assisted living options include:
- Having trouble managing medication
- Failing eyesight
- Decreased mobility
- Social isolation
- Inability to keep up with housekeeping
- Skipping meals or eating poorly
- Home safety issues such as inadequate lighting
- Forgetting to pay bills on time
Benefits of Assisted Living
One of the biggest benefits of an assisted living community is the availability of full-service nursing care on an as-needed basis. Embassy's assisted living communities have a fully licensed nursing staff available 24-hours a day for scheduled and unscheduled needs.
You can also take advantage of regularly scheduled outings and social activities.
Other benefits of assisted living, including:
- Reduced incidence of hospitalization
- Improved physical and emotional health
- Safety and security
- Improved family relationships
