What California Requires of Assisted Living Facilities
Assisted living facilities provide care and supervision to residents. People with certain medical conditions or needs such as diabetes, catheters, colostomy care, incontinence, etc. may be admitted to the facility, as long as necessary care is provided by a skilled nursing professional. Dementia care and hospice care may also be provided, so long as all legal requirements are met and it’s within the facility’s licensing requirements. If you have any questions or concerns about whether or not your parent or grandparent will qualify, speak directly to the facility you are interested in.
Is Assisted Living Right for Your Parent or Grandparent?
Assisted living is right for your parent or grandparent if he or she still can function quite well on his or her own. If there are any serious medical conditions that require regular attention from a doctor, either in-home care or nursing home care may be a better option. To qualify for assisted living, your parent or grandparent must undergo a full medical assessment before admission. This assessment must be repeated annually, and at any time there is a change in his or her condition.
Assisted living is right for your loved one if: he or she can still do daily tasks like bathing and showering with supervision or minimal assistance; he or she is tired of maintaining a home; he or she wants more social interaction, but is not safe to drive themselves; he or she expresses feelings of loneliness or isolation; and/or you worry about mobility issues and your loved one falling but not being able to get help.
Making the Transition Easier for Your Loved One
Depending on your loved one’s condition, it may be a fairly easy transition for you. If your parent or grandparent knows they are not safe alone anymore and welcomes the change, then you shouldn’t have any major problems - however, you should still do your best to give them a transitional period where they can explore the community, meet some of the residents, and adjust to the change before moving them in. If your parent or grandparent is resistant to the change, talk to the facility about ways you can make the transition smoother for everyone.
Never feel rushed to make a choice about the facility that you feel your parent or grandparent would be happiest in. If a situation calls for a quick move, do what you can to get them they care they need in the short term, while continuing to look for a more permanent long term solution.
