What Is the Difference Between Supportive Living & Assisted Living?
Supportive living for seniors is a program offered by the state of Illinois that bears many similarities to assisted living at a reduced or subsidized cost.
Within supported living, residents can expect to receive amenities such as meals, housekeeping, social and wellness activities, scheduled transportation, medication management and assistance with other daily tasks as part of an assessment. Memory care assistance is also available to supportive living residents as needed.
Supportive living residents maintain their own private suite, including:
- Handicapped accessible restrooms
- 24-hour emergency call system
- Individual climate controls
- Expanded cable TV
With supportive living care, our staff focuses on delivering residents with in-person reminders to complete daily tasks, such as brushing teeth.
Assisted & Comprehensive Supportive Care
Supportive living programs can be adjusted over time within individualized input from health experts. This can include more thorough assistance with completing daily tasks, or comprehensive care, placing the responsibility of daily tasks on trusted caregivers in our communities.
We are highly sensitive of comprehensive support services, in ensuring residents value independence, and remain highly supportive of residents who wish to perform tasks on their own.
Medication Management Assistance
Ensuring residents are taking prescription medications as prescribed is important to a continuing healthy lifestyle. As needed within our supportive living communities, staff work to ensure proper medication adherence is taking place at all times.
Memory Care Assistance
At Cedarhurst, we focus on caring for the memory of each resident in addition to any other needs they may have.
Our supportive living communities are designed with patients in various stages of dementia in mind, with a safe, strategic layout that provides a welcoming environment and community feel, while reducing the fear of becoming lost. Residents are encouraged to actively and confidentially explore their surroundings.
Inside, floor plans include common dining areas, clear sightlines, wide pathways and secure entrances to outdoor spaces to ensure residents in need of memory care have a safe, enjoyable space to live.
