Seniors living with conditions such as dementia, Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, or other specialized care needs often require a higher level of assistance and support.
In this article, we'll explore the benefits of Enhanced Assisted Living or Enhanced Care and why it could be the ideal choice for your loved one.
What Is Enhanced Assisted Living?
Enhanced Assisted Living serves as a bridge between standard assisted living and round-the-clock care.
Typically, the services falling under the "Enhanced" category necessitate skilled nursing staff or a higher degree of attention, assistance, or specialized equipment.
Essentially, Enhanced Care is the optimal choice for seniors who require the highest level of care within a retirement community.
Benefits of Enhanced Assisted Living
Selecting Enhanced Care is a commitment to ensuring you, or your loved one, receive the utmost care, comfort, and quality of life deserved.
Explore the benefits to better understand why this choice can make all the difference:
Safety and Supervision
Enhanced Care is equipped to offer 24/7 supervision and support, ensuring the safety and well-being of seniors with high-care needs. This level of care can help prevent accidents and health complications.
Enhanced Assisted Living often includes access to skilled nursing staff who can administer medications, provide medical treatments, and monitor health conditions closely. This expertise can be crucial for seniors with chronic health issues.
Consistency and Continuity
Seniors who move into Enhanced Assisted Living can often remain in the same environment as their care needs increase. This eliminates the stress and disruption of moving to a new home as their condition worsens – further preventing Relocation Stress Syndrome (RSS).
Enhanced Assisted Living offers a wide range of services, including assistance with activities of daily living, meal preparation, medication management, and specialized care plans tailored to the individual's needs.
Quality of Life
Enhanced Care aims to enhance the quality of life for seniors with significant care needs. It provides opportunities for social engagement, activities, and a sense of community, fostering a fulfilling and enjoyable lifestyle.
Enhanced Care offers specialized equipment and resources to assist seniors with mobility issues, respiratory conditions, or other medical requirements.
