If you are concerned that a senior you love needs help they don’t have at home, consider the benefits of assisted living.
First, let’s answer the question “What is assisted living?” Assisted living communities offer support for seniors who need help caring for themselves or their homes. They can provide personal care, like assistance with bathing, grooming, or dressing, and medication reminders. They can also provide services like meal preparation, housekeeping, and home maintenance. Many communities that provide assisted living for seniors also offer short-term respite care.
We can help you understand senior housing options and determine if assisted living is the right choice for you and your loved ones.
What Does Assisted Living Provide?
Platinum Communities offers compassionate care with support for activities of daily living (ADLs) in an intimate community setting. We provide attentive, individualized care that enables residents to thrive in body, mind, and spirit. For every new resident, we complete a thorough health assessment, which provides the starting point for an individual care plan.
In every assisted living community, care is delivered by a full-time licensed nurse and a team of Resident Care Partners. Our communities are staffed around-the-clock, and a licensed nurse is available 24 hours a day to provide clinical oversight and coordination of care.
Our assisted living apartments include:
- Assistance with activities of daily living, including dressing, bathing, and dining
- Meals and snacks every day, with a dietician-supervised menu
- Nursing oversight
- Care for chronic conditions like diabetes
- Medication management
- Housekeeping and laundry
- Apartment maintenance and repairs
At Platinum Communities’s assisted living facilities, your loved one will have the ability to participate in a wealth of activities, including social, recreational, and wellness programs, arts and crafts, community outings, and outdoor activities such as gardening. Many of Platinum Communities’s residences include off-site transportation for shopping, banking, and cultural events. There are even welcoming places for your loved one to enjoy time with family and friends, private outdoor spaces to take in fresh air, and quiet spots for relaxation.
Many Platinum Communities communities also coordinate with physicians and other health professionals to provide onsite services. We assist residents with mild cognitive impairment and memory loss in their day-to-day activities and offer programming to meet their individual needs and interests. In some Platinum Communities communities, we do provide specialized and secure memory care for seniors with advanced dementia.
