The Benefits of Assisted Living
In an earlier post, we explained what assisted living is, and the regulations associated with assisted living facilities in the state of Maryland. In today's post we'll explain some of the benefits of assisted living facilities, and why it may be a good idea to place your loved one(s) in one.
The first benefit of assisted living care is that it gives you regular access to an assortment of necessary health care services. Many facilities, Holistically Devoted Assisted Living (HDAL) included, provide medication administration services for their residents. This ensures that the resident(s) receive their medication on time, as necessary. Also, all facilities in the state of Maryland must, at least, have an assigned delegating nurse that visits the facility at least every 45 days to monitor the health care program and ensure the health of the residents. HDAL benefits by being co-owned and operated by a registered nurse who also serves as the facility's delegating nurse.
A second benefit of assisted living is socialization. A serious issue faced by many in the aging community is a lack of access to various mental and social activities to keep them engaged. As a result, depression can become a major health issue for the elderly. Assisted living care works to overcome this by offering regularly scheduled social activities to keep their residents mentally, socially and physically stimulated. We at HDAL are especially proud of our activities program.
A final benefit of assisted living is the quality of life it can provide for the aging community and their families. Assisted living facilities should provide their residents with a safe and hygienic community for its residents to live in, that addresses all health care and personal assistance needs, while also ensuring that they are properly engaged and stimulated. Many times, our elderly population doesn't have access to these amenities while living independently. With this in mind, assisted living providers are able to create a peace of mind, for both the resident and their families, by ensuring that they are well taken care of.
Here, we have stated some of the general benefits of assisted living care. Of course, these benefits may not be realized unless you are able to find a quality facility for you or your loved one(s).
