Nursing Homes and Assisted Living
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), about 1,347,600 Americans were living in nursing homes as of 2016, while 811,500 were residents of assisted living or other residential care facilities.
Nursing homes and assisted living facilities can provide long-term care to aging seniors, including those suffering from chronic illnesses, such as Parkinson’s disease, as well as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-related conditions. But the ratio of caregivers to patients can be quite high and at a minimum of 20:1 stretching caregivers and the attention a senior may receive in a facility very short.
Assisted living does not provide one-on-one care and extra time or amenities at these facilities are usually extra with added costs on top of an already high based cost. This usually isn’t an option for those with serious mobility issues or advanced dementia. In most cases, residents will be required to transfer to a skilled nursing home once their condition deteriorates beyond the assisted living facility’s ability to provide care. Assisted living is also notoriously expensive. In fact, should your loved one’s financial resources become depleted within their lifetime, the facility will likely require their transfer to a Medicaid nursing home, regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities.
Nursing homes provide skilled medical care and daily assistance to those who are no longer able to care for themselves. Unfortunately, many nursing homes – especially those that care for Medicaid patients – are severely understaffed. When this occurs, residents can sit for hours in soiled clothes and are frequently overmedicated to ensure they remain docile. This is particularly a problem for those suffering from Parkinson’s disease and other medical conditions that might inhibit their ability to communicate their needs to staff.
Sadly, sexual and physical abuse continues to be a problem in nursing homes, with those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related conditions most at risk. Also once you choose a nursing home and assisted living facility, your options are quite limited in what to do if the situation becomes problematic. Live-In home care offers you more options and affordability than you may think.
FCP Live-In Care Services
If you’re like most family caregivers, you want your elderly loved one to remain at home, and wish to spare them the anxiety and depression that often plagues those living in long-term care facilities. But caring for a senior on your own can be extremely difficult, especially if they’re physically disabled or suffer from a chronic illness or dementia-related condition.
In fact, research has shown that providing primary care for an ill or elderly family member is associated with increased rates of anxiety, depression, physical illnesses, impaired health habits, and even death. Caregiving responsibilities can also become a severe financial burden for families, especially if the primary caregiver is forced to cut back on their hours at work or leave their job entirely.
The senior care specialists at FCP Live-In believe quality, in-home care shouldn’t come at the cost of your well-being, or your family’s. Our customized Elderly Care And Life Care Navigation programs will ease your burden by providing your loved one with all of the one-on-one non-medical support and assistance they need to remain safe and secure in their own home:
- Help planning and preparing nutritious meals
- Medication management
- Assistance with bathing and all other daily personal tasks
- Light housekeeping/laundry
- Escorts to doctor’s appointments
- Help with shopping and errands
- Opportunities for fulfilling social engagements
FCP Live-In can provide this care, in most circumstances, at every stage of the aging process through end of life, in coordination with other medical providers, and at far less than the cost of assisted living.
