A skilled nursing home, assisted living center, or staying at home? As a senior adult, finding the right living environment can be a difficult decision. 

There are many things to consider when choosing where you or your family member should live, and these factors are often complicated. You may wish to maintain their independence, while still requiring some medical assistance and daily support. Additionally, it can be difficult for family members to move into a caregiver role, even though they desire their loved ones to be well cared for and supported.  

For many senior adults, assisted living may be an excellent solution for finding the ideal situation. Assisted living centers can provide the perfect middle ground for both older adults and their families. 

 

Woodland Haus Assisted Living: Comfort and Independence for Senior Adults

 

Studies show that seniors need a family and community around them to combat loneliness, depression, and isolation. Socially isolated seniors are 60 percent more likely to have a decreasing quality of life. 

At USA Healthcare, we understand that you need comfort, independence, and community to thrive as a senior adult. We have premier healthcare centers throughout Alabama, including Woodland Haus Assisted Living, located in Cullman, AL. 

After reading through this blog, we hope that you feel more comfortable and confident in understanding assisted living centers and why Woodland Haus could be the perfect place for you to call home.

 

What is an Assisted Living Center?


Let’s start with the basics – what exactly is an assisted living center? Essentially, an assisted living community provides senior adults with personalized healthcare in a
comfortable, residential environment.

Typically, assisted living centers offer medication management and assistance with everyday activities, such as dressing or grooming. Most centers have services such as housekeeping, food, laundry, and transportation included for their residents. Assisted living centers also have staff members that are always available to help with residents’ health, safety, and support. 

However, assisted living centers are not the same as skilled nursing facilities. The main difference between the two is the level of daily care needed for the residents. In skilled nursing facilities, residents often require extensive care and around the clock monitoring. Because of this need, skilled nursing facilities can resemble a more institutionalized setting, such as a local hospital. 

Senior adults living in an assisted living center may only require help doing daily activities. Additionally, an assisted living center may look more like a cozy, community apartment complex for senior adults.
