As you get older, you are likely to find that you can no longer do all the same things you could in your youth. For example, many seniors require ongoing clinical support to manage various medical conditions, and many also struggle to keep up with the tasks of daily living, such as managing a household. If you are starting to feel this struggle yourself, we at Vienna Village Assisted Living can help. In this article, our experienced caregivers will go over some key information that you need to know about assisted living services to decide if they are right for you.
Assisted living services are designed to provide help and support for people who can no longer live 100% independently. Most assisted living services are provided in a care facility of some kind, and the services themselves include clinical support for medical needs, as well as assistance with chores and household maintenance, and even help with personal care when necessary. Most assisted living services, like ours, are designed to provide the support you need to stay healthy and take care of these tasks, while also retaining as much independence and autonomy as possible.
Assisted living services can help with a wide variety of needs. While the specific services offered can vary from one facility to another, most assisted living organizations offer the following services:
- Medication monitoring
- 24-hour emergency care
- Some medical services
- Daily meals
- Personal care, such as dressing and bathing
