SELECTING THE RIGHT CARE HOME

CAN BE A DAUNTING TASK 

 

Domiciliary or home care is not always the most appropriate option for a senior who requires help with the activities of daily living (ADLs).

 

So then what?

 

Facing the difficult task of selecting a care home, assisted living facility or extra care housing for your loved one can be an emotionally stressful situation. You will want to ensure you find a community that will treat your loved one with compassion, respect, and dignity. It is important to take your time with this decision. With the right help, it’s possible to enhance the quality of life of your family member as they face the challenges that come with the aging process or a health issue. Because there are many options in senior housing, you will want to take the needs of your loved one into account to ensure they are placed in the best possible community for their needs. 

 

About Care Homes

 

Care homes provide care for seniors who need some help with activities of daily living, yet who wish to remain as independent as possible. These communities bridge the gap between independent living and nursing homes. Residents in assisted living communities aren't able to live by themselves, but they don't require constant care. Medical care is limited in an assisted living community. Residents are assessed when they move into the community so the community can develop an individualised service plan to ensure that the senior get the best care possible.

 

There are approximately 1,400 assisted living communities and extra care housing in the United Kingdom. The number of residents living in a community can range from a few up to 300, with the most common size being between 25 and 120 individuals. Each community offers different levels of care and charges varying rates. The buildings themselves range in size from flats to classic Victorian properties. Rooms vary from studios to one and two bedroom apartments with kitchenettes. 

 

Some key characteristics of assisted living communities include …

 

  • Activities of daily living (dressing, personal care, bathing, incontinence care)
  • Meals served (usually in a restaurant type setting)
  • Security (emergency call systems)
  • 24-hour supervision (around the clock staff)
  • Community activities (social events, outings, golf, transportation, etc.)
  • Community services (laundry, cleaning, etc.)
  • Health services (medications management and dispensing, diabetes care)
  • Environment (personal freedom)
  • Overall health (physical, emotional) 

Residents may suffer from memory disorders, various diseases, or simply need help with mobility, incontinence or other challenges. Assisted living is appropriate for anyone who can no longer manage to live on their own but doesn't require medical care.

 

Understanding what community is right for your loved one can be a daunting task. Since 1996, Always Best Care has been helping seniors through this process. Let Always Best Care guide you through the health care maze. Our Care Coordinators have personally viewed assisted living communities in your area. Call Always Best Care today for your free no obligation consultation.
