Assisted Living & Elder Care Services

Because older adults and seniors require increased health care, therapy, and personal care assistance due to permanent disabilities such as Alzheimer's, they need to know they can rely on the expertise of qualified professionals.

Those who work in the elder services business, whether at a nursing home, community center, or residential convalescent home, need to have the utmost patience in dealing with young and old adults. They should have a gentle demeanor, along with excellent interpersonal communication skills, as they often have to deal with a patient's family members on a regular basis.

Nurses must go through a two or four year nursing school, depending on the degree desired. Occupational therapists, who use hands-on help to rehabilitate disabled individuals, must attend an accredited program, receiving a bachelor's of science degree in OT before taking the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) exam.

Adults and seniors who need more involved care from elder services and can't live independently may be best off in an assisted living facility, convalescent home, nursing home, or hospital-affiliated clinical setting. Some are targeted towards long term care for Alzheimer's patients, while others focus on day programs, such as meals and social activities. Others need in-home hospice care.

Each facility offers something different in terms of services and organization, and costs can run the spectrum from cheap to expensive depending on the living conditions, services, medical staff and amenities. Referrals are often needed. Final cost also depends on insurance provider and Medicare coverage, placement requirements, availability, eligibility, and retirement plans. Those who want to obtain an apartment for their loved ones as will most often speak first with a receptionist, who is often the friendly face of the company. He or she can outline rates and offerings, and even give tours of the program, agency, or facility.

Organizations can help care for Alzheimer patients or elderly loved ones that require long term care that you may not be able to do on your own. Nursing homes, convalescent homes, senior apartments, hospices, and other healthcare facilities offer a variety of programs and nursing care that individuals need. To find an adult community in your area, search the internet, phone book, or ask friends and co-workers if they needed to place a family member in a long term care facility. Since homes are available in various levels of personal care, you can easily find which provider will work best for your situation. Eligibility can be determined by visiting with an organization's consultant and discussing any concerns you may have. Independent health insurance and Medicare will often work together to help reduce the amount it costs out of your pocket whether it's in a hospital or other long term care program. Alzheimer's programs can help both the patient and their family to learn about the illness and different techniques to help make life more comfortable for everyone. Adult apartment complexes will often allow the people to live on their own as they would in their own home, but have a nursing center on site if any problems arise. This not only gives family members a peace of mind, the person living at the community can also feel safer. Visit each elderly care service to fill out an application and see if they have any openings. You will also need to ensure the area is well maintained and the staff has the proper credentials. The application process may take a few weeks to complete, especially if there are insurance problems. Have as much information as possible available so the paperwork is complete to avoid postponing the move-in date.
