As your loved one ages, they may need assistance with certain basic tasks. Assisted living facilities are designed for senior members who want to retain independence, yet may need help with bathing, dressing, grooming, meals, and taking medication. The video gives more details on these facilities.
As old age approaches, the body loses a certain amount of mobility, balance, and motor skills. Certain diseases or injuries can accompany old age.
For these reasons, the senior requires help with day-to-day tasks.
These senior members are moved to an assisted living facility that offers these services in a homely environment, under supervised care. Some facilities can have nurses on a full-time basis. Most facilities have services such as laundry, housekeeping, transport, social and educational activities, and outings. For an extra amount, special services such as memory care and physical therapy are also provided.
Someone who needs medical attention may be moved to a nursing home, where they are monitored 24/7 and provided with medical care. These cost more than assisted living facilities.
If you’re looking for such facilities, check online, look at the reviews, visit the facilities, compare the services offered, compare the costs, and then make an informed decision.
