How To Find The Right Assisted Living Community
Assisted living communities are for older adults who want to remain independent in a home-like setting but need non-medical or medical assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as eating, bathing, dressing, maintaining good hygiene, and medication monitoring; or any chronic conditions like diabetes, Parkinson's, memory care, or cancers.
Welcome to Buckingham South, Savannah’s premier senior assisted living facility designed with community, independence, and luxury in mind. As a licensed, full-service senior assisted living facility, we understand that finding the right community can be daunting. That’s why we have put together this guide to help you find the right assisted living community for yourself or your loved one.
Step 1: Ask Yourself Why You Are Looking for Assisted Living
The first step in finding the right assisted living community is to ask yourself why you are looking for one. Is it for yourself or a loved one? Is it due to a disability, the demands of a home, or health and nutrition concerns? Has an illness made it difficult to care for yourself or your home? Are you seeking a social community or seeking to live an active life? Understanding the underlying reasons for your search will help guide your decision-making process.
Step 2: Plan for the Future
Once you have identified why you are searching for an assisted living community, the next step is to plan for the future. Consider your finances and assess whether your needs will increase over time. Will a level of care price be too expensive? Do you have long-term care insurance, or are you eligible for veterans’ benefits? Planning for the future will ensure you are able to find an assisted living community that can accommodate your needs. Buckingham South can help you if you are unsure.
Step 3: Look for Key Aspects
When searching for an assisted living community, it is essential to look for crucial aspects that can make all the difference. The social environment, medical care, and location are three critical aspects to consider. Does the assisted living community offer a variety of activities and social stimulation? Is there continuity and consistency of medical care with a registered nurse on premises and 24-hour emergency care? Lastly, is the location convenient to shopping, medical centers, family, and houses of worship? Buckingham South Assisted Living checks off all these boxes. Come in today and compare.
