What Services Does Assisted Living Include?

Moving to an assisted living community is a major life change and deserves considerable examination. You should take the time to consider and compare all of the various services each community offers. Senior living communities are designed to provide peace of mind for the whole family. They not only meet the needs of busy or out-of-town adult children by providing a safe, happy place for relatives, but they can also enhance the life of a senior.

As you educate yourself on the many options available, it may be difficult for you to know where to start. The Gables at Charlton Place can help.

More than two-thirds of people over age 65 will require some type of long-term care services during their lifetime, and over 45% of people will need a period of care in a nursing home, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

What Are the Differences Between Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Communities?

The main difference between assisted living and skilled nursing communities is that assisted living communities provide personal care and assistance with housekeeping, medication management and personal care, while skilled nursing communities also provide 24-hour skilled care and medical support.

Both types of care levels offer activities, programs and amenities tailored to residents’ needs and preferences. Skilled nursing will provide a higher level of personal and medical care, such as administration of injections and management of ventilators and intravenous feedings. Residents in skilled nursing communities usually require help with the majority of their self-care needs.
