What is assisted living in Richmond?
Assisted living meets the needs of seniors with various types of medical and personal care requirements. There are daily tasks most people take for granted, referred to as activities of daily living (ADLs), which include eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, and transferring (most often, getting out of bed). When one or more of these tasks become difficult for seniors, they require assistance with them. Communities in Richmond offer flexibility in assisted living, and provide a setting ideally tailored to promote residents' independence.
Richmond seniors who move into assisted living must be capable of directing the care they receive and clearly communicate needs to care and nursing staff, independently. Anyone in assisted living must also be able to respond to emergency alarms, for example, and they will be able to act independently.
The move into assisted living care can be challenging for families and senior family members needing to move. The rewards, though, are significant. Communities listed above offer much more than assistance but a complete liberation from all the small cares that go with living on your own. Living in a community with peers will also be very rejuvenating for those who make this transition.
Facilities listed above are all very updated and are designed for optimum accessibility, safety and security. Staying in your own home can often be more jeopardy than you realize. Typical problems that seniors may face in an older home include narrow or steep stairs, old carpeting that is roughly worn, icy outside steps and walks, and more.
After you make the move and go through the adjustments, you will likely join the many, many people who, over the years have said, “I wish I had done this earlier!”
Many seniors still get sticker shock when they see the prices of communities. However, thanks to real estate prices now, a retirement home is within reach for a much bigger segment of the senior population than ever before. Consider the equity in your home, consult a reputable financial advisor who will invest your money wisely, and you’ll find that you can live in a retirement home for a very long time (decades in many cases).
