Rio Rancho Assisted Living Q&A

Typically, Medicare does not cover assisted living services. Medicare does cover short-term stays in rehabilitation or skilled nursing facilities but does not cover long-term care services like those provided in an assisted living facility.

Many families seeking assisted living are often shocked at the price. However, a closer look will reveal that in many situations, assisted living is cheaper than in-home care. Assisted living communities offer all-inclusive services, including meals, medication management, care, and more. Adding up all the expenses of home-ownership and in-home care often exceeds the all-inclusive cost of assisted living.

Generally, assisted living services include assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). These include incontinence care, medication administration and management, dressing, grooming, and personal care.

There are several benefits of assisted living. Assisted living communities often offer around-the-clock care so that the needs of residents can be monitored even during the night. Residents in assisted living receive nutritious (and delicious!) meals that meet unique senior nutrition needs. Additionally, assisted living provides a social environment for seniors who may otherwise be isolated.

In independent living, residents do not receive care services. They are active and mobile and do not require assistance with activities of daily living. Residents in assisted living receive personalized care services that help them live as independently as possible for as long as possible. Seniors in memory care are living with Alzheimer’s disease or a form of dementia and require specialized care to cope with the neurodegenerative disease.

Assisted living communities like Fairwinds – Rio Rancho NM offer a ranch of services and amenities that truly encourage residents to live better than ever. With an active social calendar, three meals a day, a bistro, a pub, games, a theater, a full-service salon, and more, assisted living residents at Fairwinds – Rio Rancho have everything they need to thrive in retirement.
