When July 4th arrives this year, we will celebrate “Independence Day for America’s Seniors.” FindingAssistedLiving.com will launch and become your guide to finding the best assisted living and Senior Life Transition options for you or your loved ones.
When living on your own becomes more and more difficult, when routine activities seem exhausting or impossible, when just ‘keeping house’ is taking the joy out of life, it may be time to think of an assisted living option. But where can you turn for knowledgeable, unbiased advice? Most people are not prepared to deal with these questions.
Our Purpose: FindingAssistedLiving is a national directory, a network of professionals providing full, transparent, accurate and trustworthy information to help people find the senior transition option that is right for them or their loved ones.
FindingAssistedLiving is devoted to providing the best and most complete information available for those seeking assisted living options. It might be a senior apartment, a skilled nursing facility or an assisted living facility, but our mission is always to guide you to the type of personalized care that you or your loved ones need and deserve.
Physical limitations or medical conditions can make living at home a less desirable choice. Simple activities like cooking, housekeeping or bathing can become real challenges. The person who once fixed dinner for five or six guests and family members now has difficulty preparing a balanced meal for one or two people. Basic home maintenance is ignored because it is just too tiring. These seniors may not need skilled nursing care or medical supervision. An assisted living facility may offer the best blend of independent living and help where and when it is needed.

The Importance of Finding the right Assisted Living Facility for You or for Loved Ones
Finding the right assisted living facility is not simple. There are many factors to consider, and it is critical that all of the personal needs of your loved one are met. This may include basic things like bathing and toileting but also social activity, mental health and recreational needs. The idea behind assisted living is to maintain a person’s quality of life in a comfortable, safe environment for as long as possible.
Here are some things to remember.
- Make certain the facility has a staff that is adequate to care for the daily needs of your loved ones.
- Look for a place that has a central dining room capable of providing three meals per day (if needed and wanted). This is not only important for good nutrition, but also for the social needs it fills.
- The facility must be able to provide good nursing/medical support when needed.
- It should have personal laundry and good housekeeping services.
- Good 24-hour security should be provided along with an emergency call system for each apartment.
- It should be welcoming to family and friends and offer social activities and outings as well.
Assisted living facilities provide different options and levels of care at different costs. The most common living options provided include:
- Independent Senior Living
- Enhanced Living
- Senior Assisted Living
- Skilled Nursing
- Memory Care
- Rehab Care
- Continuing Care
- Retirement Communities
Each of these has its own advantages and drawbacks. So, how can FindingAssistedLiving.com help you?
