myths of assisted living facilities

There are many choices when choosing a healthcare option for a loved one. Often the notion of an assisted living facility brings up concerns on behalf of the family. Here at Choice Health Management we’re here to shed some light on the five most common assisted living myths.

  1. Assisted Living means losing Independence

During your time in an assisted living facility you will not be mandated to lights-off hours, or a daily routine of some else’s choosing. The only freedom you will be missing while you’re on campus is the task of doing household chores, we’ll take care of those! At Choice Health Management our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible, including your personal life. Visitors are welcome to stop by and share in celebrations and events. You can determine your own activities and daily routines with transportation available should you choose to explore the town.

  1. It’s more comfortable at home

At home, your living situation may have a variety of variables. From caregiver schedules, equipment needs, medical capabilities and more, there are numerous tasks associated with in-home care. While residing in one of our assisted living facilities we can ensure the same comforts of home, with the added assurance that should you need help, we’re here 24/7! Each resident is able to personalize their living quarters and can develop lasting relationships with fellow residents and staff. Our facilities offer beauty salons, libraries, and more, everything you need is just steps away.

  1. It’s lonely at Assisted Living facilities.

In our assisted living facilities our primary goal is you and your loved one’s well-being, physically and mentally. Many of our residents join activity groups and gather for mutually appreciated hobbies. At home, residents may only be able to see a caregiver when their schedule allows. Here at Choice Health Management we have staff on call 24/7 and never a shortage someone to lend an ear. Our residents are some of the most interesting people you will meet, grab a chair and get to know them, he or she may become your new best friend!

  1. Nothing is personalized

We love the decorations our residents line their walls with. From pictures to friends and families, to stories of adventure and journey, there is rarely a room that doesn’t tell a story. Every person in our facilities has a unique background and history. At Choice Health Management we want to be a part of that story with you! Residents are able to decorate their quarters to suite their personal taste, and can craft their daily schedule focusing on their hobbies and individual interests.

  1. It’s only for dependent care residents

It isn’t uncommon for residents to enter into assisted living before they can no longer take care of themselves. By being proactive in your healthcare, you put yourself in the driver’s seat in determining the type of care you would like to receive. Shoot us an email if you’re curious when the right time is for you or your loved one to become a resident.

Home is where the heart is, and our heart beats for our residents. Assisted living facilities offer much more than medical care, and we’d love to show you all about it! Give us a call today to learn how you or your loved one may benefit from
