Nursing Home Auburndale

 Auburndale Nursing Home

 

Many people use terms like “nursing home” and “assisted living facility” interchangeably. However, there is a substantial difference in these two elder care options. A nursing home is designed to provide long-term skilled medical nursing care.  An assisted living facility such as Stone Ledge Manor is for seniors who need assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) but do not need around the clock medical attention.

Stone Ledge Manor is not a nursing home. Stone Ledge is a premier Assisted Living Facility offering private apartments, lodge -style living, daily lifestyle activities and more. If you would like more information on whether STone Ledge is the right option for your loved one please give us a call.

 

 

Assisted Living Facilities

Assisted living facilities or ALFs are residences for older adults that provide services to individuals with mental and physical impairments. In an ALF, these seniors are able to get assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). The biggest difference between nursing homes and assisted living facilities is that assisted living facilities are not required to offer health care or have a skilled health care provider available at all times. In some cases, health care services may still be provided on a person by person basis as an add-on with additional fees incurred.

An assisted living facility is usually a better option for people who:

  • Are mostly independent but may need help with meal preparation or transportation to their medical appointments.
  • Need assistance with ADLs like laundry, cleaning, and cooking and find that owning and managing their own home is too difficult.

When it’s time to make the transition to a nursing home or assisted living facility, ask for a recommendation from your physician and visit the nursing homes and assisted living facilities in your area.
