What is assisted living?

Who qualifies for assisted living?

Assisted living is a great senior living option for older adults who:
  • Need help with daily tasks like dressing, bathing or other non-medical services.
  • Are mobile and can walk around independently or have the ability to use a walker, cane or wheelchair on their own; or who need assistance with the use of their wheel chair to get from their apartment to where they would like to go.
  • Are comfortable living in their own apartment but need a little extra care.
  • Need help with daily regular medication attention

How much does it cost to live in assisted living?

The cost of assisted living is based on the type of services and support that you or your loved one requires. The floorplan that is chosen along with the services that you or your loved one will require are often some of the key factors that will determine the cost of assisted living.

Is assisted living covered by Medicare?

Medicare does not usually cover the cost of assisted living or other senior living services that do not include more focused medical care. In most cases, Medicare only covers short-term medical stays at a skilled nursing or senior rehabilitation community

Respite Care

What is respite care?

Respite care provides temporary support for seniors and offers their primary caregiver time to handle other responsibilities.

Plus, your loved one will have more opportunities to build meaningful connections and socialize with other seniors.

What is included in a respite stay?

Respite care stays often include the same services and amenities that long-term residents enjoy at the community. That includes help with daily tasks such as dressing, bathing and medication management with plenty of activities for your loved one to enjoy. At Villagio of Carrollton, our Life Enrichment Program can help your loved one follow their passions while helping them reach a higher level of physical, mental and social wellness. Respite care is often used as a convenient way for older adults to see what life at a senior living community is like. It is also a wonderful opportunity to give a full time family care giver a two to four week break from caregiving for a possible vacation, college tours for the kids, or travel for work.
