When you or your loved one requires long-term care, you may be deciding between home care or making the move to an assisted living community. While you can benefit from the expertise of skilled nurses by visiting a healthcare facility or having them come to your home, it may not be the most convenient or cost-effective option in the long run. In this article, we share with you how you can benefit from skilled nurses in your assisted living community.
If you are worried that you or your loved one will meet with a medical emergency with no one around to assist, moving to an assisted living community is a great choice. Not only will you benefit from having professional staff members in the community round the clock, but emergency medical services are also in place to serve residents. With a team of skilled nurses and licensed physicians on the ready, you will never have to worry about falling and staying on the floor without anyone to help you up again.
Skilled nurses specialize in personalizing care for residents, instead of adopting a one-size-fits-all approach. They take the time to get to know your loved ones as well as understand their health needs and conditions, allowing them to formulate the most suitable care plan. With regular assessments on how your loved one is doing, you can be assured that they are in safe and capable hands at all times.
One important but often overlooked aspect when it comes to deciding on long-term care arrangements is the need for social engagement. Although home care can come with its benefits such as allowing individuals to age in a familiar environment, social engagement tends to be overlooked and inadequate.
In an assisted living community, residents are constantly surrounded by skilled nurses, other team members as well as their neighbors. With a calendar of activities and events scheduled, you can be assured that social isolation is a thing of the past.
Meet Individual Dietary Needs
You or your loved one may have special dietary needs that are hard to meet at home. For instance, you may require a diet of pureed foods but someone may not always be around to prepare them for you. Skilled nurses in an assisted living community can see to it that residents’ individual dietary needs are met, whether they have religious or physical health restrictions.
