Many families struggle with choosing the best care-providing community for a loved one who requires assistance, guidance, and supervision. While the closest community might be easy for family and friends to visit, the better for it may be a community farther away from the individual’s home that offers the best activities, programs and guidance that is a better fit for them. Unfortunately, not all facilities provide the highest level of care and assistance.

Community Living Homes
Community-based residential facilities are usually small in nature, with 16 beds or fewer. The center provides daily personal services, nursing care, health care and a meal plan. These facilities tend to allow the individual to live independently with assistance and guidance close at hand should an emergency arise.
Community living homes include group homes and supportive living facilities that offer support, treatment and education services to residents. Typically, these are the least restrictive communal facilities that provide a continuum of care while respecting the resident’s individuality. Most offer behavioral health care to those suffering from mental conditions including autism, schizophrenia or intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Usually, every resident is assessed by competent staff to determine the level of their capacity and to identify their individual or personal challenges. Once the assessment has been completed, the resident and members of the nursing staff will work in unison to set realistic goals (both short-term and long-term) and develop/implement/enforce a Support Plan specifically targeted to meet those goals and optimize the resident’s capabilities.
Usually, these plans involve specific programs that help pursue the development of effective interest and life skills while maximizing the resident’s independence. Usually, these comprehensive programs involve enrichment, recreational, vocational, residential and social support services provided in a fostering environment of self-sufficiency and lifelong learning.
Staff members generally provide aid for the resident in learning independent vocational and living skills that could include household maintenance, financial management, personal care, transportation training and homemaking such as shopping, cleaning, and cooking.
Choosing the Best Community
Often, making the decision of where to place a loved one is so overwhelming that the final choice is made quickly in the desperate need to resolve a challenging crisis. However, it is often better to visit a minimum of three community living homes before making the final decision. This opportunity will provide a clearer picture of the amenities, options, solutions and programs available at each available home. In addition, it will provide an opportunity to look at how each community differs from the other and what makes them unique.
It is important to read the fine print because even though the contract may appear to be straightforward, it likely contains some confusing legalese where hidden additional fees, unexpected restrictions and special charges are hard to identify. Usually, these living communities offer varying pricing structures were some do not charge individualized fees for specialized services but offer “all-inclusive” pricing which is often more affordable.
An extensive review of the admission contract may reveal one-time entrance fees, medical supply and laundry service charges, drug delivery fees and more. Usually, the overall cost rises at approximately 5% annually unless there is a “locked rate” when the contract renews.
If your family believes your loved one is living in an inappropriate facility, they should never be afraid to admit to the wrong decision and make a pivot at moving them into a center that is more ideally suited to their specific a needs and assistance requirements.
