Assisted Living Frequently Asked Questions
Who qualified for assisted living?
Our assisted living community is designed to provide support for individuals who may benefit from assistance with certain activities of daily living. Qualifying for assisted living often involves an evaluation of a person’s ability to perform both activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs).
ADLs are basic self-care tasks that are essential for maintaining one’s independence, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, mobility, and toileting. Older adults who struggle with one or more of these activities of daily living tasks likely qualify for and would benefit from assisted living.
IADLs are more complex tasks like managing finances, shopping, meal preparation, medication management, housekeeping, and transportation. While not necessary for functional everyday living like ADLs are, IADLs are tasks that significantly enhance an individual’s quality of life. Those who are able to perform IADLs are sometimes best suited for independent living. However, individuals who find these tasks challenging might also qualify for assisted living to ensure a comfortable and supported lifestyle.
Keep in mind that independent living residents of Blakehurst have access to higher levels of care, including assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation, should the need arise.
How do I know when I or someone I love needs assisted living?
It’s best to start with a physician’s assessment. Depending on the circumstances of your situation, or that of your loved one, you can match needs to the right level of assistance. Trained professionals provide support while helping you preserve your independence.
What if my loved one needs more than what’s provided in assisted living?
At Blakehurst, we offer a full continuum of care. In addition to assisted living, we provide memory care, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation. These levels of living provide around-the-clock care for Blakehurst residents recovering from illness or injury, or those needing more long-term care or support.
