If you’re not ready to move your loved one into a senior living community, at-home help is a viable solution. There are a wide range of Home Care services, and they range from part-time to live-in care.
Seniors who continue to lead very active lifestyles, whether it be holding a part time job or still driving their vehicle will find Senior Independent Living ideal for their needs. Meal plans, housekeeping services, transportation, maintenance, utilities, and other activities are also available.
Seniors who need assistance with their daily living activities such as bathing, dressing, medication management, escorting, and incontinence assistance would be best served with Assisted Living. It also provides three daily meals, weekly housekeeping, transportation, utilities, and outings.The appropriate level of care is determined by the nursing staff after an assessment is conducted.
Supportive Living Facilities are assisted living communities that are subsidized by the State. They accept medicaid. This is a viable community option for those who have some private pay funds but cannot afford private pay assisted living rates for a sustained amount of time.
If you know someone affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia, they need around the clock care. Luckily, Washington County and the surrounding Kettle Moraine area has numerous Memory Care communities that can help. Memory Care is a specific level of assistance which supports seniors with memory related disorders. These communities provide a safe environment, where staff closely monitors the day-to-day of seniors and helps them live a fulfilling life.
