What Kind of Seniors Enter Assisted Living?
Seniors who require non-medical personal care enter assisted living. However, not all assisted living facilities accept residents with particular conditions. For example, many assisted living facilities do not accept residents with advanced dementia or physical limitations. Advanced dementia poses care challenges to inexperienced staff, and physical limitations may require multiple staff to care for the resident at any one time. Consequently, if your loved one has either advanced dementia or physical limitations fewer Santa Rosa assisted living facilities will be available to you. Wild Rose Care Home recommends contacting a free placement agency to get assistance with finding an assisted living facility capable of caring for your loved one.
