Paying for Assisted Living

Paying for Assisted Living

We know that “home instead” is the first choice for senior living in most cases. Numerous studies conducted by the American Association of Retired People and other organizations have confirmed this. Most seniors would prefer to “age in place” in the familiar surroundings of their long-time home. We also know that this sometimes becomes impossible or at least unwise. Even if you have no immediate plans to enter an adult community or an adult assisted living facility, it is wise to be aware of the possible alternative if the need arises. The details of financing assisted living may be confusing for older adults and for their loved ones. Most of these expenses are paid from the family’s private funds, but there are additional programs and funding solutions that you should investigate. Doing this ahead of time may save a lot of anxiety in the future, so find out about these possible options. Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefit. This is probably the first...

About Home Health Care – Private Duty Accreditation for Home Health Care

About Home Health Care – Private Duty Accreditation for Home Health Care

We have often observed that remaining home and ageing in place is the preferred option for most seniors. According to the AARP, nearly 90 percent of seniors prefer to age in their own home, allowing them to remain in familiar surroundings. It is often an economic advantage and good senior home care and in-home senior care or assistance can often make ageing in place, in a familiar home, a practical choice. Unfortunately, most people do not prepare ahead of time for choosing in-home senior care. When the need arises, they are often confused and do not know where to turn, or even how to evaluate senior home care agencies. What should a senior or their loved one consider when choosing an in-home care provider? The first thing to think about is the level of care needed. Do you or your senior loved one need specialized medical services to remain in home, or will simple help with housekeeping and personal care be all...

Senior Home Care

Senior Home Care

To many seniors and their families, there is no subject of greater importance than finding quality in-home care or assistance for seniors who want to remain “home instead” of choosing an assisted living option. We know that most seniors prefer to spend their retirement years in their own homes, living independently for as long as it is a safe choice.  A senior’s emotional, mental and physical health may well depend on this option remaining open. Most seniors (nearly 90 percent according to the AARP) prefer to age in their own home. Doing so allows them to remain in familiar surroundings, and it is often more affordable than senior assisted living in a care facility. Good senior home care and in-home senior care or assistance can make this ‘age in place’ option a workable choice.  But think ahead for a few minutes. Will the home need to be modified in some way to accommodate this plan? Are there stairs or other obstacles? How...

A Big Concern in Senior Care

A Big Concern in Senior Care

One of our special aims at OurSeniors.net is looking after the safety and welfare of seniors in senior home care, senior assisted living and memory care living. “Wandering” is a big concern for caregivers involved in senior home care, as well as the professional staff in senior assisted living facilities. Wandering is an event associated with conditions that produce impairment of memory or mental capacity such as Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. In July of 2017, a resident of a memory care living facility in the Daytona area wandered away from the facility and died before he could be located. Most wandering episodes do not result in a fatality, but the possibility is a concern to the family and to professionals providing in-home senior care. You can learn more about this danger and how to prevent it by reading our past article, “Wandering and How to Prevent It.” If you are considering senior assisted living or a memory care living...
