If you are confused with what the term assisted living means, you are not alone. Relatively a new concept, assisted living is based on the European model and is not a nursing home. Assisted living is designed for seniors who require a little assistance with their daily personal care such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, etc. Furthermore, rather than taking away a person’s independence, assisted living provides the services seniors need to maintain an independent lifestyle.
At MorningStar at Arrowhead, our assisted living offers five levels of care. Your level of care will be determined after a thorough assessment with our Wellness Director and in agreement with you and your extended family. Also regardless of your level of care, we provide all residents with around-the-clock Care Managers (at least one team member is CPR trained on each shift) to meet needs and ensure your comfort and safety.
On the MorningStar website, we list the many clinical services available to residents including Medication Management, which is performed by Certified Med Care Managers, routine care planning reviews and scheduled health and wellness evaluations. In addition we have a licensed nurse on-site or on-call, and provide transportation to residents’ medical appointments. If you or your loved one is diabetic, we offer diabetes management as well as oxygen administration services. MorningStar also provides more advanced care such as catheter and colostomy care or palliative/hospice care.
For your safety, each assisted living suite is equipped with handicapped-accessible bathrooms and emergency call systems, and is smartly-designed to accommodate the various needs of our residents. We invite you to visit our website for more information and to set up a tour of our beautiful senior living community.

If you are starting to search for senior living, it is recommended that you take a tour of the community. While all the beautiful pictures online or in a brochure can make a community look great, firsthand impressions go a long way toward getting a real feel of the place.
Before your visit, make sure the senior living facilities you are interested in offer the options you want – independent living and/or assisted living. If a family member needs memory care, is there a separate wing devoted to caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases.
If you are looking for assisted living, please keep in mind it is important that you get it right the first time as it is hard on your loved one to get settled somewhere and then decide it is not a good fit. During your tour, A Place for Mom, the largest assisted living referral service, recommends that you start evaluating the place from the moment you walk through the door. Ask yourself, does it look clean and orderly as well as smell fresh? Inquire about housekeeping services and how often private suites are cleaned, the costs involved, general maintenance of the community, and security.
If you can, come during an activity so you can join in the fun. This will give you a good idea of the staff’s friendliness around the residents. Also arrange to eat lunch at the place as it will not only provide you with a firsthand taste of the food but allow you to leisurely enjoy time with other residents.

Along with an increased awareness of Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases, there has been a move to advance best care practices for those suffering from the disease over the last couple of decades. In addition to medications that can help slow down the progression of the disease, many specialists in the field have worked to improve the approaches to care.

In addition to wanting your loved one to be happy in their new “home,” your priorities most likely include finding a community that is well run, clean, and within your price range. Experts recommend your first step should be to do some research over the Internet and on the phone. Narrowing down your choices includes considering things such as how convenient will it be for the family to visit and is it located close to a pharmacy, medical facilities and shopping. Furthermore, find out if the community is accepting new residents, and if not, you may want to go on their waiting list.
Senior support network Caring.com has a great checklist (it is even printable) of tips to consider for when touring an assisted living community. To start with, they say you should always listen to your gut instincts. From the moment you walk through the door, do you get a good feeling? Regardless of how beautifully decorated, does it feel welcoming and have a home-like atmosphere? If they offer the service, eat lunch with the residents as it will help to give you a more complete picture of the community.

Moving into assisted living is a life changing decision for an elderly person. As their adult child, you can help evaluate which of your area’s senior living facilities is most suitable for your parent and your family. Furthermore as the transition can be challenging for some seniors under the best of situations, choosing the wrong community may not only be costly but traumatizing for an older adult.
Mistakes can be avoided or minimized if you do your homework beforehand and learn from others. The Internet offers many commonsense tips on what to look for and what to avoid when searching for an assisted living community including advice from A Place for Mom, the nation’s largest assisted living referral service.
As senior living options include independent living, assisted living and memory care, experts say to realistically assess your parent’s health needs and choose a community capable of handling today’s needs as well as future ones. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisor, Melissa Pratt explains “Take a look at the health issues that your parent has and ask the doctor what support they will need in the future. It’s better to have a community that can handle those future needs rather than having to move your parent to another community in the near future.”
After looking over various senior living facilities’ websites, narrow down your choice to a couple that seem to best meet your needs. Then set up a tour. Senior living advisors remind families to listen to the parent and not base their decision on which community appeals most to them. If a parent is not up to making a decision, families need to remember what their parent is like and choose a place that fits their personality and preferences. It is also smart to not make a decision too quickly.
