What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a senior living option that includes some nursing care and other supportive services. People choose assisted living when they need help with daily activities like getting dressed, bathing, managing their medications, making meals, doing laundry, or other tasks. A move into assisted living requires a healthcare assessment by a professional.

Although people sometimes confuse assisted living with nursing homes because they’re both residential options for older adults who need support, they are distinctly different. Designed with long-term care in mind, assisted living communities are residential, often apartment-style homes complete with kitchens or kitchenettes, laundry facilities, activities, dining programs and much more. For many seniors, assisted living is the best of both worlds, providing them with a home-like experience that leaves them free of a private home’s upkeep, yet independent and still part of a community. 

Who should consider assisted living?

One of the determining factors for whether assisted living is needed is considering a person’s ability to complete Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). The main ADLs include:

  • Personal hygiene and grooming.
  • Dressing and undressing.
  • Movement and mobility.
  • Toileting: continence-related tasks, including control and hygiene.
  • Eating: preparing food and feeding

If you or your loved one struggles with one or more ADLs, it may be a signal to begin the process of reviewing options for assisted living. 

When is it time to consider assisted living?

For seniors and their families, the thought of moving from their beloved home is agonizing, while others look forward to a life with fewer maintenance responsibilities. For many adult children, the decision to move their parents is based on realizing that they may need a little extra help and would benefit from a wide array of individualized services and new social outlets to combat the isolation they experience living at home alone. 

Moving to an assisted living community like Saratoga Grove does not mean a loss of independence. Quite the contrary, it’s a place that can maximize a senior’s freedom within a community. If you answer yes to three or more questions on the checklist below, it may be time to consider assisted living

  • Is completing housework, yard work and home repairs a struggle? 
  • Is showering, bathing and dressing regularly without help a concern? 
  • Is mobility or balance a problem? Have there been increased incidents of falling? 
  • Are bills not being paid? 
  • Is scheduling and getting to regular medical appointments on time a problem?
  • Are medications not being taken when they should be? 
  • Is preparing proper nutritious meals a problem?
  • Is it challenging to maintain a healthy weight and get some form of regular exercise?
  • Do you worry about your loved one’s safety when they are alone? Do you worry if you can’t reach them by phone?
  • Is it difficult to maintain a social life? 
  • Is isolation a concern? 
  • Are there vision issues or physical limitations?

What's life like in an assisted living community?

At Saratoga Grove, residents are free to set their schedules in the privacy of their apartment. They can spend the day however they like, from taking a stroll in the community, feasting on restaurant-style meals or preparing food in their kitchen, visiting with friends, or enjoying one of the many events offered.

At Saratoga Grove, the day is yours to enjoy however you'd like.

Six Reasons to Choose Assisted Living at Saratoga Grove

For many seniors, getting a little assistance can lead to greater independence. Here are six reasons why at Saratoga Grove, a little “Assisted” can mean a lot more “Living.”

1. Help with Everyday Tasks

Our compassionate Assisted Living staff is here to help with daily activities, while maintaining your independence. People choose Assisted Living when they need help with daily activities like getting dressed, bathing, managing their medications, making meals, doing laundry, or other tasks. Licensed staff are available around the clock to help people maintain as much independence as possible. Even if you don’t need that kind of help every day, Assisted Living gives people peace of mind. It’s nice to know help is there when you do need it.

2. Safe Living Environment

You want to help your parents make good, smart choices as their health starts to change. Maybe your father sometimes forgets to take his medication, or takes more pills than he should. Our Assisted Living services can provide just the help your parents need — in the graceful and dignified setting they deserve.

3. Physical Fitness

We all know the importance of staying physically active, but how many seniors actually have exercise equipment at home? At Saratoga Grove, we not only have a fitness center, but we also have trained instructors to supervise and guide residents through classes such as breathing, balance, and stretching.

4. Healthy Meals

Maybe the last time you visited your mother’s house, you opened the fridge to find that it was no longer stocked with the fresh fruits and vegetables that Mom used to enjoy. For many people, grocery store trips and meal preparation becomes more difficult with age, leading to a lack of proper nutrition. When it’s time to eat, our residents simply visit our dining room, where meals are served restaurant-style three times a day. Now that grocery shopping is no longer on her to-do list, Mom can spend her time and energy doing the things she enjoys.

5. Home Maintenance

Broken furnaces, icy driveways, clogged gutters – the responsibilities of home ownership can become overwhelming. Not to mention the cost of hiring a handyman or lawn service. Residents at Saratoga Grove don’t miss the maintenance that owning a home requires, and appreciate the fact that any problem they have can be solved with a simple phone call.

6. Socialization

Assisted Living opens opportunities for new friendships, new experiences, and new opportunities for socialization. Choosing Assisted Living can also ease the burden on your own relationships. We know we can’t take over your role in your loved one’s life — but by taking over some of the work, we can let you go back to being the daughter or spouse that you want to be.
