Many people mistakenly assume that “assisted living” is just another term for nursing homes. In fact, nursing homes are intended for people that require long-term, around-the-clock medical care and supervision and should not be confused with assisted living, which provides residents support for daily care activities. At an assisted living community, you will receive the care you need to live comfortably and safely while still retaining your privacy and as much independence as possible.
Assisted living is ideal for anyone who does not require 24-hour skilled medical care but rather just needs more personal care than they can get at home or at an independent living retirement community. Meals and transportation are provided, and if needed, residents can get help with activities such as showering dressing, and etc. For the family, they rest easy knowing that a trained, caring staff is available to help whenever a loved one needs it.
Many assisted living communities offer the privacy of individual suites, while also providing their residents with the security and safety of 24-hour support and quick access to care. In addition communities generally provide residents the opportunity to participate in social and recreation activities along with wellness programs. Residents usually eat their meals in a communal dining room and have housekeeping and laundry services available.
If assisted living is right for you or a loved one, we encourage you to take a look at the beautiful new MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care of Santa Fe. Opening in the fall of 2018, our community will provide various levels of assistance with daily living activities as determined after a thorough assessment with our Wellness Director and in agreement with the senior and their extended family.
