What Is The Difference Between An Assisted Living Facility And An Assisted Living Home?
Whether it's a Phoenix assisted living facility or assisted living home for senior care, the state of Arizona licenses each the same way. They are inspected annually and surveys are made public. However, there are significant differences that should be highlighted among senior living facilities that are often interchangeably referred to as:
- Scottsdale assisted living facilities
- Phoenix independent living communities
- Senior assisted living facilities
- Senior retirement communities
- Senior retirement homes
- Senior living centers
- Facilities for Alzheimers care and memory care
Assisted living facilities are generally apartment-style living, wherein residents congregate for meals and activities. In these types of independent living communities, elderly care includes an emphasis on socialization, activities and community living. Personal care is provided in the privacy of each resident's apartment and as care level changes, a resident can have increasing senior assisted living services, including Alzheimers care and memory care.
Caregivers are staffed in the facilities based on need, but the number of staff in assisted living facilities vary. It's roughly one caregiver to 8 to 12 residents during the day with a staff reduction at night. Costs are generally comprised of a basic rate for services and the cost or rent of the apartment. Additional fees for this type of senior assisted living are based on an assessment conducted by the facility.
Assisted living homes and adult group homes are privately-owned homes licensed by the state for assisted living services provided in an intimate, residential setting. The capacity of these homes is typically a maximum of 10. Residents may have their own rooms or share with other residents. These senior assisted living homes are typically licensed at the highest level of care the state permits. Caregiver ratios are 1 to 5 or better. Homes in these independent living communities provide all meals, snacks, activities and ancillary services for a set monthly rate. Activities are typically of an individual nature, but may include group games, music, exercise, movies, baking, gardening and more.
