All Dementia Care and Assisted Living Facilities offer the same thing- Care!
Dementia care and Assisted Living are services. Each senior housing and senior living alternative offers assistance and elder care. Finding and coordinating individual on a care team including attention to team communication, social abilities, personality and interest for caregiving of a group of human beings is a very special task when it happens.
Assisted Living ServicesWe can only know WHO WE ARE HIRING by meeting each individual on the Assisted Living service team. When you choose any senior housing and care setting remember your focus is on WHO is supplying and coordinating the care you will need. Be sure to consider you are getting a service that can only be provided by a team of humans and is not provided by an assembly line. More than renting a room or a hotel style Assisted Living resort you are buying a service and need to meet the individuals who will supply the assisted care and those managers, administrators, and owners who will be doing the problem solving for you. Residential care homes offer complete, permanent home care and respite care and high level coordination of care at a fraction of the cost of in-home care and respite care.
Dementia Care and Assisted Living care teamsWhen searching for any senior care setting focus more on the care team than the physical setting or setting label. The team requires you meet the administrator or captain of the ship who hires, trains, monitors the caregivers and medication techs. The closer that relationship of administrator to staff caregivers the better the care and caring. Please share comments below.
