Kennesaw Assisted Living Community Services
In the past, the inability to perform one or two activities of daily living would prevent someone from living independently. Years ago, people who could not prepare a meal or walk to the bathroom would often move to nursing facilities. Fortunately, today’s assisted living communities help people lead full, independent lives, but with a little help from trained providers.
Our staff assists residents with activities of daily living (ADLs), which are routine tasks related to hygiene and mobility, and with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), which are more complex tasks related to independent living.
Examples of activities of daily living (ADLs) include:
- Bathing: includes personal hygiene and grooming, such as brushing teeth and combing hair
- Dressing: choosing appropriate clothing, putting on and taking off clothing
- Transferring: moving from the bed to a chair, walking independently with or without a cane or walker
- Toileting: bowel and bladder control, and hygiene
- Eating: feeding oneself and using utensils
Examples of instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) include:
- Meal preparation and cooking
- Cleaning the home
- Managing finances
- Shopping for groceries and other necessities
- Medication management
- Communication and using a phone or computer
- Caring for other people and pets
- Moving around within the community
Assisted living services help individuals live independently in the community. Fully trained teams of dedicated professionals help residents live better lives by providing assistance with ADLs and IADLs.
Assisted Living FAQs
Making a decision about assisted living can be challenging. Whether you’re looking for support for yourself or someone else, questions are common. To help you better understand your options, we created a list of common questions.
What is assisted living?
Assisted living provides adults with daily support completing tasks such as bathing or dressing. Care is provided in a supportive living environment that includes housing and dining services along with other amenities. Individuals who do well in assisted living are largely independent but need help with some of the tasks performed regularly during daily life.
How can I find the best assisted living home for my needs?
Moving to any type of community is a big decision, especially when you’re evaluating different levels of support, such as assisted living. Before making a decision, you should consider including the community’s environment, cost, services and amenities. Download our free resource guide to learn more about what to look for and get help finding the assisted living community that will meet your needs.
Is an assisted living facility different from an assisted living community?
Yes. Years ago, people had the option of moving to assisted living facilities, which were places they could receive help with ADLs. While they provided high quality care, these facilities were sterile and quite plain, aesthetically speaking. They were also highly clinical in nature. Today’s assisted living communities provide the same high quality care, but in a much more comfortable and home-like environment. Due to the change in amenities and atmosphere, we now consider “assisted living facility” to be an outdated and inaccurate term.
What are the qualifications for assisted living?
Anyone who needs support to perform one or more activities of daily living, but who does not need 24/7 nursing care, may be qualified for assisted living. The most common assisted living service provided to residents is bathing, followed by walking, according to the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL).
Individuals who do not need assistance with ADLs might also benefit from the amenities provided by an assisted living community, especially if they need a hand with IADLs.
What does assisted living provide?
Assisted living communities provide support that allows individuals to live independently. In addition to assisting with ADLs and IADLs, these communities offer amenities and services to create enjoyable, engaging lifestyles. Many communities have calendars full of enriching social and educational activities, and offer beautiful common areas to meet friends and neighbors. Fitness and wellness programs are often available to keep residents active and healthy. Residents can enjoy their time more fully, with housekeeping and landscaping services provided for them.
