The Benefits of Assisted Living for Your Loved One

What Are the Benefits of Assisted Living in Newport News, VA

Serving as a caregiver for your parent or other family member takes a lot of time and energy. As rewarding as it is to spend time with your loved one, you may not always be able to help them when they need it. Your father may try to do the yardwork when you’re not there and risk injuring himself, or your mother may struggle to cook for herself and maintain a healthy diet.

Your loved one may require more assistance than you can provide, which is where Assisted Living can help. Your parents or family members can thrive in an Assisted Living facility and allow you to focus on nurturing your relationship with them rather than being their caregiver.

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted Living is designed for individuals who need help with everyday activities and could benefit from health care services but don’t require 24-hour care. Assisted Living services are meant to provide your loved one with personalized care that ensures their unique needs are met. The ultimate goal of an Assisted Living community is to maximize resident independence for as long as possible.

Assisted Living services usually include medication management, housekeeping and maintenance, personal care services, social services, and access to assistance 24/7. These services are typically offered to your loved one in a homelike residential setting. Because most people prefer private residences, the best Assisted Living communities will offer studio and one-bedroom Assisted Living apartment options.

4 Benefits of Assisted Living at The Chesapeake Senior Living

The best plan for one person may not be right for your loved one, so we’ll customize their experience, starting with four levels of Assisted Living care:

  • Assisted Living I serves adults who need only minimal assistance with personal care, dressing, movement and other aspects of daily living.
  • Assisted Living II provides more personal care and comprehensive assistance with routine daily living needs.
  • Assisted Living III is for residents who’ll benefit from individual assistance with tasks such as bathing, incontinence management, medication administration and other services.
  • Memory Care provides care for residents diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, delivered in a stimulating environment that promotes dignity, independence and socialization.
