Not sure if residential assisted living fits your loved ones needs?

"Our mother was treated with superior care, kindness and love. Exceeded every expectation. They truly  are passionate about what they do."

My mom received exemplary care while staying at Legacy. TJ, Jennifer and staff took care of my mom like she was a treasured member of their family. The home is beautiful but the level of care and love that the staff gives to the people that are chosen to live there, exceeds any building no matter how nice.

They never stop adapting to the needs of each person.  They treat everyone with love and respect.  I admire the fact that they get to know each individual on a personal level which makes it feel like home."

What is residential assisted living?

A residential assisted living home is for seniors who would rather live in smaller, home-like environment. Since it’s a small senior care facility, they only provide care for up to 10 to 12 seniors. In this way, they’re able to offer a more personal environment for your elderly loved ones. Residential assisted living homes may also be referred to as:

  • Residential Care Homes

  • Board and Care Homes

  • Personal Care Homes

  • Group Homes

  • Adult Family Homes

  • Adult Foster Care

 

Residential assisted living homes are perfect for seniors who prefer to live in a homey environment and do not need constant medical and personal attention. If your loved one needs 24/7 attention, home health agencies, hospitals, and skilled nursing facilities offer this kind of service. However, this option is more expensive than other senior living facilities.

Here are some of the services provided by most residential care homes:

  • Meal preparation

  • Eating

  • Housekeeping

  • Laundry

  • Bathing

  • Toileting

  • Daily activities

  • Medication management and medication administering

  • A private or semi-private room

  • Some facilities offer financial and healthcare management

Location Matters!!

 

When a senior enters an assisted living home, his/her loved ones would want to visit them easily. Another perk of assisted living homes is that they are more widespread than large assisted living facilities. Larger ones tend to have a single central location, while residential care homes can be found in neighborhoods everywhere. Most, if not all, families think that location is a major factor in selecting an assisted living for their loved one.

The first step in choosing an assisted living facility/home is to determine the needs of your elderly loved one.

Prior to choosing the best senior care for your loved one, it’s advisable to visit and compare different types of homes.

Recreation, leisure and socialization

Daily opportunities to be engaged in both group settings and independent pursuits such as: exercise, cards, special events, family visits, movies, inter-generational visits, sing-a-longs, spiritual, music, entertainment, community outings, and volunteer projects.

This is a priority in our home, to stave off boredom and to remain as active as possible.
