Types of Senior Living

Assisted Living Communities or Board and Care Homes are non-medical facilities for seniors who do not require 24 hours medical supervision as these facilities do not have nurses and doctors on staff. However, these assisted living facilities have caregivers on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and medical staff members on call to ensure that all residents receive the best care that they deserve.

Large communities such as Sunrise, Emeritus, Vintage and Atria Senior Living are known for daily activities, frequent socialization and have locations that provide secure memory wings for Alzheimer’s residents that wander. 

If your loved one prefers a “home-like” setting, small, residential board and care homes might be a better fit. These assisted living facilities typically have 1:3 “caregiver to resident ratio” and also provide meals, activities, music and pet therapy and assist residents with transportation to and from the doctor.

Other factors that determine the cost are location of the facility, staff experience, private or shared room, if the facility is new or has been renovated, amenities and included services.

 

Paying for Assisted Living in Mission Viejo

Assisted Living is typically paid for out of pocket by the resident or their family members. Unfortunately, Medicare or Medicaid does not cover the care. However, families also use their Long Term Care Insurance or get help from Veteran’s Aid and Attendance programs.
