How to Start the Conversation with Your Patient About Assisted Living

But have your patients and their families weighed all their options when comparing assisted living and home care? Even if your patient can manage on their own, a trained care team can monitor their overall wellness and nudge healthy behaviors. If your patient requires a daily check-in or needs assistance managing pre-existing diseases or chronic conditions, a community of trained staff who know their histories, routines and preferences can relieve the stress of juggling multiple diagnoses and medications. Having 24/7 access to trained care associates can also help patients after a recent hospitalization or acute care episode—when those additional care needs may go unnoticed at home.

The unique services found within a senior community like Brookdale include personalized attention to exactly what residents need for holistic health. There’s an engaging community around personal interests, daily routines to help maintain or improve cognitive abilities and customized, nutritious meals. Seniors often have trouble financially justifying a move to a senior living community, but bringing similar levels of personal care into the home could cost just as much—if not more.

At Brookdale we offer a variety of care options based on your patient’s unique needs. Our multiple levels of care—which include independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care—increase the likelihood that residents can age in one place and discover a home environment that’s right for them.
