- Dementia / Alzheimer’s
Dementia means the loss of intellectual functions (such as thinking, remembering, reasoning, exercising judgment and making decisions) and other cognitive functions, sufficient to interfere with an individual’s ability to perform activities of daily living or to carry out social or occupational activities. Dementia is not a disease itself, but rather a group of symptoms that may accompany certain conditions or diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease. Symptoms may include changes in personality, mood, and/or behavior. Dementia is irreversible when caused by disease or injury, but may be reversible when caused by depression, drugs, alcohol, or hormone/vitamin imbalances.
- Skilled Nursing Facility
A skilled nursing home or facility is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital. However, nursing homes differ from other senior housing facilities in that they provide a high level of medical care, were as senior living deals with non-medical aspects. A licensed physician supervises each patient’s care and a nurse or other medical professional is almost always on the premises. Other medical professionals, such as occupational or physical therapists, are also available. This allows the delivery of medical procedures and therapies on site that would not be possible in other housing. Many times a senior needs a skilled nursing home to help rehabilitation or recovery from an injury, surgery, or illness. Once they have recovered they are sometimes okayed to go back home with in-home care services or are told they need to find an Assisted Living/Residential Care Home.
- In Home Care
In-Home Care Services help someone remain at home as long as possible, rather than moving into an Assisted Living Community or Residential Care Home. They provide assistance with all ADLs and household duties. They provide trained caregivers so one can remain in the comfort of their home and still get the care they need.
