Assisted Living Communities

Assisted Living Communities

Certain situations make it more obvious that it's wise to start thinking about alternative living arrangements, such as senior assisted living communities. 

  • Does Mom forget to bathe?
  • Does Grandpa have trouble transferring from his wheelchair to the bed or to the toilet?
  • Does Dad have arthritis in his hands which hinders his ability to dress himself?
  • Is Grandma afraid to be alone or feels isolated?
  • Does Aunt Carol need help with meal preparation and/or medication management?

Sometimes our loved ones need more than just light housekeeping help (making the bed, cleaning the bathroom), or a meal with their neighbors. We, at Arizona Senior Options have relationships with many of the senior assisted living communities or care homes throughout the Phoenix valley. 

What kind of accommodations can you expect? For the most part, assisted living senior communities offer apartment-style living with either a small utility kitchen (no stove) or no kitchen at all. This is because many of the residents no longer have the physical ability or stamina to prepare their own meals, or may have memory issues that could cause hazardous conditions.

How do you know if you or your family member needs assisted living care?

They may have any of the following/ Signs to look for: 

  • Increased difficulty managing everyday activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, grooming and dressing themselves 
  • Mobility issues, frequent falls or hospitalizations 
  • Changes in their personal appearance and hygiene habits (e.g., noticeable weight loss or loss of appetite, unable to perform ADLs, etc.) 
  • A chronic health condition that is worsening
  • Lack of socializing with others either because they can’t get out on their own or are starting to isolate themselves 
  • Mild cognitive impairment or diagnosed dementia
  • Expired food items in the refrigerator or cabinets 
  • Wandering/ sundowners/ behavioral issues
  • Signs of household neglect (trash that hasn’t been taken out, unkempt bathrooms or kitchens, unwashed dishes in the sink) 
  • Unopened bills or mail, which will eventually cause credit problems and possible home foreclosure or eviction
