Assisted Living Homes and It's Benefits

by Nikita Goyal Digital Enthusiast

Assisted living homes are homes for older adults who cherish their independence but at the same time need some help with daily chores such as bathing, dressing, medication reminders and transportation. They have the option of having an apartment to their own or share it with someone.


Even though it is a relatively new concept, but is gaining popularity to the point where assisted living is now the fastest growing long-term care option for the elderly. There are so many assisted living facilities to choose from for the adults that it will be a huge miss for them to not opt for it. After all the hard work, one should be able to enjoy the golden years of their life with complete comfort and stress-free.


As time goes by, children are seeing assisted living in India as the best option to provide care and nursing to their parents. One shouldn't have to worry about the safety of their parents as assisted living homes offer 24*7 security. However, there are a few things that need to be kept in mind while looking for a senior living home. Some of these include-


  • What is the staff-to-resident-ratio

  • How efficient is the staff in helping the seniors with their daily chores

  • What is your impression of the initial assessment before admission

  • What is the monthly cost per apartment

  • Are there any activities in their daily routine


Some of the benefits that come along with assisted living homes are -


Active and healthy life

Emotional and mental health goes hand in hand. You want to spend the rest of your life at a place that has basic facilities like a park, a place to do yoga, a library where you can read your book and at the same time have a discussion. Your body is a temple, and you should treat it like one!


Stress-free living

After you are finished with your job and getting your kids settled down, you would want to spend the rest of your life without any worry. This is your time to treat yourself with the best of facilities such as having an electrician, plumber and repairers just one call away. Regular maintenance of the infrastructure and cleanliness of rooms should be of top priority, and a helping team that caters to all of your concerns is a plus.


Safety

The safety of the elderly should be a point of paramount for any elderly home. They should make sure that there are no break-ins and that can only be achieved if there is a great security staff, CCTV cameras installed and round-the-clock surveillance. An added bonus will be if there is 24/7 emergency care, with on-call doctors and ambulances.


In the end, it is of vital importance to check if senior citizen homes in India have had a successful past and provides exemplary services. Ashiana Housing is one such company that has been on top of their game when it comes to providing the best services in assisted living and all their other projects as well.
