Assisted Living FAQs
What is assisted living?
Assisted living is a long-term residential community that offers personal care services to older adults. Typically, assisted living residents need help with one or more activities of daily living (ADLs), such as taking their medications, bathing, dressing, eating meals or moving about. Trained team members are available 24/7 to assist with those daily activities. Residents pick and choose the support they need, when they need it.
What are assisted living apartments?
An assisted living facility, or the term we prefer “assisted living community,” offers apartments for residents while also providing personal care assistance. Residents have a personalized home to relax or cook and can choose from different floor plan models. The community is designed to bring all the amenities within easy reach of residents while still offering independence, activity and choice. At Rockbridge Oaks, residents not only have their own spacious apartments but access to an amazing outdoor green space, on-site fitness center, salon and spa, and personalized wellness programs.
What amenities and services does assisted living provide?
We provide apartment amenities such as housekeeping, laundry services, maintenance and repairs and scheduled transportation. For personalized care services, Rockbridge Oaks’ trained team members offer personalized SalusTM wellness programs tailored to each resident along with 24-hour personal assistance for bathing, grooming and dressing.
When is it time to move to an assisted living community?
Every person has different care needs and living desires. So, the choice of when to move to an assisted living community may be based on your personal decision. Typically, adults who require daily assistance with personal care tasks may benefit from these communities. Assisted living communities do not usually take in residents who need more advanced medical care.
What is the difference between assisted living and nursing homes?
Assisted living focuses on providing personalized care within a senior living community. Nursing homes offer more advanced medical care in a more clinical setting. While team members are available to provide help for residents in an assisted living community, you have more privacy and freedom to move about the grounds on your own. You also have a private apartment to have for yourself, or to share with a spouse, at an assisted living community. A nursing home focuses on 24/7 nursing care and monitoring of residents to ensure they receive timely medical treatments when needed. The resident may also share a room with another resident.
