Senior Housing Advising
When a family begins to consider senior housing for a loved one, it is often a time of heightened emotions for everybody involved. In many cases, this transition is prompted by an incident or health condition in a beloved senior, which often lends a sense of urgency to the search for the ideal assisted living environment. At Amada in Charleston and Hilton Head, we know from our personal experiences how difficult it is to focus and make rational decisions during a time of turmoil, especially when there are so many senior living options available in this area. When we were in this position ourselves, we just wanted someone who had experience in this area to give us guidance. Now, we are happy to offer this guidance to you and your family, so you can feel confident you have made the right choices for your loved one.
We have found that it makes the search for senior housing less overwhelming to families if we break the process down according to three major needs every family must consider: a senior’s physical care needs, his or her emotional well-being, and the cost of senior housing.
There are many different types of senior living environments in the Coastal South Carolina region, and each type offers a different level of care. If a senior client is only looking to release some responsibilities and live a more socially active life among peers, we might recommend independent living or assisted living. If, however, a senior requires access to more complex medical services and/or substantial help with activities of daily living, his or physical needs may be best met in a nursing home.
It is critical that a senior’s emotional needs are also met in their assisted living environment, and this is an area where clients find our expertise especially helpful. We’ve worked with most of the senior communities in this region, so we can rely on our in-depth knowledge to direct families to the place that will meet their preferences as far as location, environment, activities and hobbies, social opportunities, and other factors key to a resident’s enjoyment of life.
Finally, we help our clients consider the cost of the senior housing placement of their choice. Many clients feel as though this should be the first thing they consider when looking into housing options, but we are determined that no senior should receive compromised care due to financial concerns. We want seniors to transition to the new homes where they will feel most comfortable, safe, and fulfilled. This is why we have made it our duty to become experts in senior care financing options, and can help families take advantage of long-term care insurance, veterans’ benefits, life insurance policies, and other resources to make sure their loved ones get the care they deserve.
