What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living is a type of long-term care that provides assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) to people who need help but do not require the around-the-clock medical care that is provided in a nursing home. Assisted living facilities are designed to promote independence and provide social and recreational activities for residents.
What Services are Provided?
The services provided in assisted living facilities vary, but most assisted living facilities provide 24-hour supervision and assistance with ADLs, as well as meals, transportation, and social and recreational activities. Many assisted living facilities also provide skilled nursing care, memory care, or other specialized services.
What to Look For
As you are touring various assisted living facilities, there are a few important factors to keep in mind. First, you will want to make sure that the assisted living facility is licensed and accredited. Second, you will want to consider the cost of care and the level of care provided for your loved one. Finally, you will want to tour the assisted living facility and meet with the staff to get a feel for the community. Here are a few other things to look for when visiting our facility in Waterville.
Compassionate Staff Providing Daily Support
When considering a place for your loved one to call home, it’s important to make sure that the staff is compassionate and able to provide the level of care that they need. Ayden Healthcare‘s staff is committed to providing the best possible care for our residents.
Cleanliness, Curb Appeal, and Design
The cleanliness of an assisted living facility is also important for the health and safety of its residents. Ayden Healthcare is kept clean and well-maintained by our housekeeping staff. In addition, we have a beautiful campus with landscaped grounds and a variety of amenities for our residents to enjoy.
Safe and Secure Environment
Safety is always a top priority at Ayden Healthcare. Our facility is equipped with a state-of-the-art security system to ensure the safety of our residents.
Is Assisted Living the Same as a Nursing Home?
Many people confuse assisted living facilities with nursing homes, however, assisted living is not the same as a nursing home. We provide a more independent lifestyle for residents, with assistance available as needed. Nursing homes, on the other hand, provide round-the-clock medical care for residents who need constant supervision and care.
