Description of service

$5000 is the monthly charge for someone to stay in an assisted living facility. All necessities (food, bed, sheets, etc.) are provided. Haircuts, fluffy pillows, soft blankets, etc. are deemed extras (basic pillows and blankets are supplied) and must be brought from the individual's home or purchased elsewhere. 24 hour nursing care is available if needed and nursing assistants and volunteers are also always available to help in any care that the individual cannot provide for themselves. The above cost is for a semi private room. Private rooms are extra.


Review of Service

This type of service is perfect for someone that cannot stay in their own home any longer without help. It also takes the guesswork out of hiring someone to assist the person in their own home.


Tips

Visit the assisted living facilities in your area and decide which one is more convenient and which ones have the best atmosphere. Ask other families that you see visiting how they feel about the staff and services provided. Find out if there are any problems with theft or neglect. If the individual is married, oftentimes they and their spouse can live together within the same room. The best assisted living facilities have some sort of protection available in the form of electronic monitoring devices or key codes for the outside doors. These keep unwanted people out and keep the residents that may be prone to wandering in.
