What is Assisted Living/Personal Care?

What is assisted living/personal care (KY)? Assisted living/personal care is not a nursing home. It is not independent/retirement living. It is somewhere in between.

Assisted living/personal care is for older adults who do not need intensive medical care but do need some assistance with day-to-day needs. These may include things like:

  • Medication assistance and reminders
  • Personal grooming assistance, such as bathing or getting dressed
  • Assistance with transferring to a bed or chair
  • Escorting to meals and events
  • Incontinence management
  • Transportation to appointments
  • Nutritious meals
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry

Morning Pointe Senior Living assisted living/personal care communities offer these services, along with caregiving staff available 24/7, a full calendar of social activities, and exercise opportunities.

We’ve built thoughtfully designed, single-level communities so our residents can enjoy both independence and social interaction in a home-like setting, and still have access to onsite help when they need it.

Is assisted living/personal care right for you or your loved one? It might be time to consider if you say yes to any of these questions:

  1. Is keeping the house and yard maintained becoming too much?
  2. Are there days when showering or bathing is too hard to do alone?
  3. Does getting together with friends or family seem like more trouble than it’s worth?
  4. Is it becoming harder to move around the house safely?
  5. Are meals eaten regularly?
  6. Is decision-making becoming too challenging?
  7. Does driving no longer feel 100 percent safe?
  8. Have bills and financial obligations fallen behind?
  9. Is it difficult managing necessary medications?
