Assisted Living in O’Fallon, MO
We are happy to announce that we are broadening our range of services through the creation of an assisted living facility within our campus, the Abbey Cottage, by the first half of 2022. Located on the first floor of Abbey Senior Health, the Cottage is a 10-bed assisted living facility for those who need supportive services while still maintaining a level of independence.
O’Fallon, MO Senior Care
Abbey Senior Health has long been a leader in the excellent care of older adults in the O’Fallon, MO area who require skilled nursing services, either on a long-term care basis or for short-term rehabilitation. Also located on the same campus, the Villa Theresa Apartments have continuously met the needs of area seniors seeking an independent living solution. The apartment residents enjoy the freedom of living independently while also receiving supportive services such as dining, housekeeping, transportation, social activities, and health and wellness programs.
What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living can be defined in many ways, but perhaps the easiest is by describing what it is not. Assisted living is not skilled nursing, which is the highest form of care, nor is it independent living, the lowest level of support. Included within the services of assisted living is around-the-clock care for certain activities of daily living. These tasks include:
- Personal hygiene
- And more
Typically, assisted living residents need support for two to three daily living activities. They reside at the facility in either their own room or a shared space. In addition to assistance with daily living tasks, residents receive meals, snacks, and medication administration.
The Benefits of Assisted Living
Among the overall benefits of assisted living are socialization measures and related activities. Other key benefits include:
- A healthy and safe environment with 24/7 care and support
- Consistent healthy meals
- Medication administration
- Improved socialization
- Access to individualized services
- Overall care and support
At Abbey Senior Health, we pride ourselves on our approach to individualized care. No two residents’ needs are the same, so we offer a vast array of services to ensure every senior receives the care they need. The principle also applies to Abbey Cottage – other programs offered by our senior living facility can be specifically tailored to each assisted living resident’s needs, such as memory care, respiratory therapy, balance therapy, and more.
Assisted living residents must be able to negotiate their own pathway to safety in the event of an emergency. Assisted living is not staffed as highly as skilled nursing, and residents must know where the exits are and how to get to them. This process is discussed and planned with each resident on a regular basis to ensure safety.
