What is the difference between assisted living and a nursing home?

The main differences between assisted living communities and skilled nursing homes are the level of care a resident receives and the cost of the care.

Assisted living communities are staffed 24 hours per day (many with certified nursing assistants) and can call an ambulance or doctor for any emergency situation that is beyond the capabilities of the facility.

The focus of assisted living communities is to limit isolation and provide a comfortable living and socializing environment where older adults can live with a great deal of independence and privacy while knowing personal assistance is available 24 hours per day right outside their doors.

Skilled nursing facilities are staffed with registered nurses and physicians and are able to immediately provide medical care. Nursing homes offer the most medical care and supervision for older adults outside of a hospital. Some examples of reasons seniors might need skilled nursing care would be if they require tube feeding or a respirator.

Both assisted living and skilled nursing provide assistance with activities of daily living such as:
• Medication administration & management
• Meals
• Housekeeping
• Laundry
• Incontinence management & assistance
• Dressing
• Transferring & mobility
• Bathing
• Socialization & activity programs
• Exercise & wellness programs
• Chronic disease management such as: Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and other related dementias, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, etc.

If I don’t feel well, will someone check on me and deliver my meals?

Yes, any time you are feeling under the weather, you will be seen by the care-giving staff or a nurse. We’ll arrange to deliver your meal selections through room service.

Can I participate in decisions about my care?

By all means. We encourage your involvement. In our resident assessment process and the development of your service plan, our staff will include input from you and your family in order to keep you involved in decisions that impact your daily life.

Does Cecelia Place schedule trips or outings?

Is there a nurse available to attend to my needs?

Common Terminology for your reference

There are many different options when choosing the right facility for your loved ones. It can become confusing and overwhelming. There are differences between the level and type of care. Below are some definitions for the more common senior housing options:

Alzheimer’s Care:
Some Alzheimer care facilities are also assisted living homes. In an Alzheimer’s specialized assisted living option the facility is specially designed to meet the needs of the resident. Just like the assisted living the meals, programs, housekeeping, laundry etc. are typically included.

Assisted Living:
One who needs assistance with the usual daily tasks such as eating, bathing, grooming, to get dressed and medication management. This is ideal for individuals who do not require more than four hours of care a day. They tend to be more residential, home-like environments. Meals, social activities and housekeeping are just some of the common known amenities found in one of these facilities.

Independent Living:
An environment of age 55 plus looking for the freedom of a normal everyday lifestyle. It’s an ideal option for seniors who are tired of maintaining a home. Options are usually like a condo or apartment complex. Some offer higher end amenities like onsite fitness centers, meal service, housekeeping and more.

Home Care:
These services are provided in the home by either a home health care agency or non-medical home service agency. They include a variety of services and each one is a different level of care they can provide. Most include cleaning, food preparation, monitoring, companion services and more.

Hospice Care:
Typically in the final stages of life to give supportive care. This is for the terminally ill to finish life comfortably and focus is on the quality of ones life rather than cure. The goal of Hospice is to enable patients to be free of pain and worry so they can live each day as best and fully allotted.

Nursing Home:
This provides 24 hour nursing services for post-acute or surgical care. The level of care varies depending on the clientele. They provide meals, transportation and other services.
