Having the Conversation About Senior Living

How do you know when it’s time to start having the conversation about senior living? Here are some indications that senior living would be a good fit.

Watch for Signs of Change

If you’ve noticed a change in habits, including a loss of interest in usual activities, excessive sleeping, weight loss or maybe the fridge is not as well-stocked as it typically used to be, these are just some signs that a senior care environment could support a healthier and safer lifestyle.

 

Here is a list of other signs:
• Forgetfulness: normal hygiene, doctor appointments, medication
• Drinking alcohol or taking sleeping or pain pills more frequently
• A loss of interest in visiting friends
• Making rash decisions that are out of the ordinary
• Buying duplicate items or displaying obsessive behavior
• Unable to keep up with housekeeping

Here are some things to consider:

Driving Safety

Erratic driving, more frequent fender benders, or a major accident could be indicators of medication-induced dizziness or confusion or could be signs of bigger issues such as Alzheimer’s disease or stroke. If you notice any of these things, a physical can help determine if vision loss or loss of hearing is the cause.

 

Medical Safety

Not taking medication when prescribed to do so, taking it at the wrong time of day, forgetting to take medication all together, or confusion over dosage are signs that help may be needed. Medications should be reviewed frequently and discussed with a doctor to double check the prescribed dosage. Sometimes sitting down at the beginning of each week to set up a pillbox with a box for each day of the week can be helpful. If difficulties with medications still persist, Senior Living can help.

Financial Safety

Are utility bills, the gas bill, or cable/telephone bills not getting paid? With cognitive problems, it can become hard to keep track of normal financial responsibilities. Look for evidence of unpaid bills or late notices—especially if the funds are available to cover these expenses.

 

Home Safety

Stairs may begin to pose a problem, especially if there isn’t a banister on both sides of the stairs. Furniture can become obstacles, causing trips or falls.

Bruising can indicate frequent falls and can signal the need for a safer environment such as Senior Living. Some safety precautions that can be immediately implemented include reducing furniture clutter, adding non-slip pads to wood stairs, or placing non-skid carpeting on floors. These interventions can help reduce the chance of a slip and fall.

Financial Considerations for Senior Living

One of the biggest considerations when looking at senior living is cost—how much is this going to cost, can we afford it, and what will Medicare cover? You or someone you care for deserves the best possible care as well as a welcoming, warm environment that really does feel like home away from home. Fortunately, at our community, we make it as easy as possible to help you find senior care you can afford.

Here are answers to questions we are frequently asked about insurance coverage, Medicare, and other payment-related issues.

How do I pay for my stay at a Mission Health Community?

There are many insurance coverage and payment options for skilled nursing communities. Our community participates in Medicaid, Medicare Part A & B, private insurance, hospice, respite care, and participating HMO plans.

Will my insurance pay for my health and rehabilitation services?

The amount your insurance company will contribute toward skilled nursing care depends on your individual policy coverage guidelines. A member of our admissions team can help you answer this question based on the specifics of your particular situation.

What are the payment options for the portion of services that are not covered by my insurance company?

A member of our admissions team will be happy to help you determine which skilled nursing benefits you may qualify for. Medicare benefits are available to millions of Americans, including those over age 65 and some people under 65 who are classified as disabled.

Medicare Part A covers a skilled nursing stay up to 100 days following a 3-day inpatient hospital admission. Days 1 to 20 are covered at 100%. A co-pay applies to days 21 to 100. Visit Medicare’s website for more information.

 

Medicaid is an option for eligible low-income patients in need of long-term nursing care. Eligibility requirements vary from case to case, and we can help you determine if you qualify.

Many insurance companies and employers now offer long-term care insurance.
