What Services Are Included in Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities offer a variety of services and amenities to their residents. These services can include help with activities planning, mobility coaching, medication management, transportation, social activities, and more. But no two retirement homes are exactly the same; it’s important to understand what services are included in your assisted living community of choice so that you can be sure you’re getting the care you need. As we come to the end of March, and our calendar’s Exploring Month, let’s look at how you can keep exploring through assisted living.

The best retirement homes offering supportive living in Calgary will usually have a list of services designed to make life more comfortable, despite Calgary’s wild weather swings. Assisted living means that everyone’s differing levels of need are taken care of, and that independence is still encouraged and celebrated. Residents should receive the best possible care. Here are some of the most common services offered in assisted living communities:

Personalized Assistance & Care Including Daily Activities

One of the most common services offered in assisted living communities is help with our own Personalized Assistance & Care Including Daily Activities package (PACDA). This living arrangement can include around the clock support for things like getting dressed, bathing, grooming, and more. In particular, PACDA includes:     

  • Bathing
  • Grooming
  • Dressing
  • Medications (If Required)

Around the core personalized assistance model, you can also get further benefits that make a complete supportive living lifestyle. The Manor Village Life Centres can offer the following benefits under the assisted living lifestyle:

  • Emergency call and response system 24 hours/day with a wide range of in-house health care professionals
  • Nutritional meal planning including three square meals/day
  • Elegant common rooms for socializing
  • Routine linen and housekeeping services
  • Programs to avoid memory loss
  • A busy calendar of activities and entertainment
  • Personalized wellness and exercise classes

 

If you need help with any of these activities, an assisted living community can be a great option. The staff will be available to help you with everything you need, so you can focus on enjoying your life.

Medication Management

Another common service offered in assisted living communities is medication management. It’s always optional, but if you ever need help with it, we can take that burden off you. This option includes receiving your medications on time, taking them as prescribed, and any follow-up care that may be needed. The staff helping the assisted living community will be able to help you with all of your medication needs, so you can feel confident that you’re taking your medications correctly.

Transportation

One of the biggest benefits of living in an assisted living community is the transportation services that are often included. This can include transportation to and from appointments, shopping trips, social events, and more. This can be a great convenience for residents who no longer have access to a car or who don’t feel comfortable driving themselves.

Social Activities

Another great benefit of living in an assisted living community is the social activities that are often included. This can include things like group exercise classes, arts and crafts, social events, and more. When you’re living in an assisted living community, it’s easy to stay active and involved in your community. The staff will be able to help you find the right social activities for you, so you can make new friends and enjoy your time at the community.

Senior living communities like ours offer a variety of services, amenities, and lifestyles to their residents. And whether you take a journey from independent living to assisted, start in assisted, or only want to try certain lifestyles out before committing—there’s something for everyone. These services can include help with Personalized Assistance & Care Including Daily Activities, transportation, social activities, and more.

It’s important to understand what services are included in your assisted living community, and what’s available as your needs change so that you can be sure you’re getting the care you need. With supportive living Calgary, you can be sure that you’ll receive the help you need to live a full and independent life.
