Who is a good candidate for assisted living?

The best assisted living candidates should be able to get around on their own for the majority of the time. Those who are bound to wheelchairs or are bedridden may be better served at a skilled nursing facility where they can receive the care and attention they need.

It is important to consider the care your family member needs. For example, if they require insulin injections, colostomy care, or have chronic wounds.

Here at Mary T, we provide different levels of care to ensure that everyone gets the health care they need. We can assist with activities of daily living such as dining, bathing, toileting, showering, getting dressed, and medication administration. We provide regular activities for the enjoyment of our residents.

What is the difference between senior living and assisted living?

A senior living community allows for more independence, while an assisted living facility ensures that your loved one can get continuing care. Retirement living communities often consist of seniors who can care for themselves, yet want access to assistance when necessary.

We have skilled nursing professionals who provide home care to both senior living and assisted living community members. Memory care and meal arrangements are provided with assisted living.

For the most part, it comes down to if your family member can live alone. Assisted living can help ensure their safety and well-being, allowing them to retain independence in a safe environment.

Assisted living means that our staff monitors your loved ones around the clock to ensure that they are safe and comfortable. While our staff can’t diagnose any medical concerns, we can alert you if we feel there is a need for medical attention. We’ll give you the peace of mind that your family member is being cared for and that they can get the attention they need should a medical issue arise.

At what age can you go into assisted living?

Residents must be 55 years of age or older to join our senior living and assisted living programs. We understand that each resident has different needs. Our goal is to provide the necessary care so that your loved ones can enjoy life while we take care of what’s important.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living facilities provide short-term and long-term assistance to seniors who need help in their day-to-day activities. Our assisted living facilities make it easy for loved ones to get the help they need to live a safe and comfortable life.

Our assisted home care communities allow for a level of independence while also providing a safe environment that ensures that your family is well cared for at all times.

If your family member is capable of getting around on their own but needs assistance with daily tasks and activities, our caring staff is here to help. We foster independence where possible to help loved ones maintain dignity and happiness.

Whereas independent living members are typically able to handle their own daily needs, assisted living members may need a helping hand here and there throughout the day. We strive to deliver kind, compassionate senior assistance in all of our services.

We have registered nurses who are on-site and on-call 24 hours a day. And with in-home physician visits, you have the assurance that your family member is being looked after by trained medical professionals.

Each resident receives customized care plans that focus on their individual needs. From daily activities to meals, everyone’s care is unique. This ensures that all residents can look forward to safe and effective care that is tailored to their specific needs.

At Mary T, you can trust that your loved ones are well attended to and are receiving the very best care for their needs. Each assisted living resident has opportunities to explore and participate in a variety of activities that are designed to provide a meaningful experience.

What if I have more questions?

At Mary T, in addition to assisted living, we offer many homes and health care services to meet the needs of people in our community such as individuals with developmental disabilities and older adults, enabling them to maximize their independence and be part of our community.

If you have any questions about our services, please feel free to contact us so that we may assist you. We look forward to providing you and your loved ones with exceptional care through our services.
