As you begin the search for the perfect senior community, you’ll find that communities offer multiple care levels. Choosing the appropriate level for you or your loved one is very important.
The goal of Assisted Living Communities is to allow seniors to maintain their independence in a safe, accommodating space. These communities are licensed and regulated at the state level. In Mississippi, this means a community must operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week providing personal care and supplemental services.
The community must provide assistance with daily chores such as:
Laundry & Housekeeping
There's a trained staff avaialble around the clock to assist with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). ADLs include things like bathing, dressing, and toileting. Medication can be administered with the help of a licensed nurse.
Assisted living communities are designed for the comfort and convenience of the residents. Doorways and restrooms are able to accommodate mobility devices such as rollators or wheelchairs. Common spaces and group activities promote socialization and community living. Typical amenities include: barber/beauty shops, movie theater, religious services, and social activities.
