Adult Homes

Adult homes are headed by qualified nurses, aides, and even doctors who provide daily care for residents suffering from brain injuries and diseases like Alzheimer's. Most residents are somewhat independent, so their care may revolve around daily medical care, personal care and hygiene reminders, physical therapy, and socialization programs. Some larger adult and retirement homes have chefs who cook meals on site, while other residential adult and retirement homes require residents to make their own meals.

Most adult homes, convalescent homes, and community centers take insurance like Medicare for long-term or short-term care. One residential facility may have laundry services, while another may require residents to do their own laundry. It all depends on the level of independence within the home.

People looking for adult homes for their loved ones can meet with health care consultants to learn more about services and programs, such as hospice, health care, and social outings. They should be willing to give tours of the facility or center, showing off the amenities and offerings of the home or apartment, which may have a hospital affiliation. People may have to visit several adult homes before finding the right one. He or she may meet with doctors and nursing staff to find the best fit as well. These professionals should have gentle bedside manners, knowledge of the medical community and protocols, and excellent communication skills.

Those providing transportation must have clean driver's records and valid licenses. Physical therapists and nurses should have the proper educational background and training to offer services in an adult home setting, whether for elderly senior citizens or for younger brain injured patients.

Adult homes are available with many different resources. An Alzheimer, retirement, or convalescent community should work with you and your loved one's needs in order to determine if they can give the care that is required. Hospitals can be a great place to find recommendations on adult home care. They may offer a hospice company that will let your family member stay in the comfort of their own home while receiving the care they need to remain comfortable. Long term adult care in retirement or nursing homes can be very expensive. Medicare is available to help families, as well as independent healthcare companies. You will want to visit each facility you're interested in and speak with a consultant. Ask any question you may have, including what programs are available, how many nurses they have on staff throughout the day and night, what their nursing requirements are for their staff, and what a typical day would be like for your loved one. If eligibility is a concern, ask what insurance companies they accept, including Medicare. Fill out an application as soon as possible, as some residential centers may have a waiting list. Speaking with your independent insurance company may also come up with some facilities that are accepted by them. Senior living doesn't have to be as restrictive as a nursing home. Apartment complexes for the elderly are also available. They can live as they normally would, but still have access to nurses much easier than if they were living in their old home. Citizens of a residential adult home may also be a good place to ask around. See if they're happy with where they're staying to get a better idea on how well they're treated. Each center or community will cost differently. Find personal customer satisfaction reviews from family members that may have had a loved one stay in a certain community. Make sure they are up to date on their licenses and passed their last inspection.
