Assisted Living Guide

Assisted Living

Every senior deserves a good life during retirement. After having gone through so much they should enjoy a stress-free life, where they have easy access to help and assistance as needed. Without such assistance the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) can become mentally and physically stressful. This is why it is important to consider Assisted Living options as you or your loved one ages. 

What is Assisted Living?  

Assisted Living provides care and assistance to those who need help with the ADLs. These activities include grooming, toileting, cleaning, eating, cooking, transferring (getting in and out of bed, chairs, cars, etc.), showering, and medication management, amongst other things.

What About Independence?

Many care communities and care homes throughout Arizona offer high quality Assisted Living options in a safe environment where a healthy mix between the seniors’ independence and the assistance they need is offered. These communities and homes understand seniors want to be independent, enjoy a quality life and when needed receive assistance. The goal with Assisted Living is to find that optimum balance between a  residents’ desire for independence and their need for assistance.

Do I Need Assisted Living?

If you find yourself requiring help to complete the ADLs or you have a health condition that requires supervision you probably need  assisted living. Common health-related conditions which can require Assisted Living include but are not limited to: failing eyesight, early stage Alzheimers and Dementia, debilitating arthritis, fractures and wounds. Assisted Living communities offer basic health care for their residents. The health of their residents is the #1 priority. They ensure that prescriptions and doctor recommendations are followed.
