Living in an assisted-living facility offers seniors a protected environment to help insulate them from possible abuse. Aperion Care owns and manages a number of nursing homes across Illinois, Indiana and Texas. The founder and president, Yosef Meystel, explains the benefits and advantages of nursing homes over home care.
Assistance with daily tasks
As people are getting older, the difficulty for dealing with the daily tasks increases. They need somebody to help them with the daily activities, such as bathing, dressing, eating, drinking, using restroom, running errands and administering medicine. Nursing homes, like Aperion Care, provide assistance to their residents with all this daily activities.
While living alone at home, many seniors suffer from depression, due to lack of socialization. Besides, living in a nursing facility provides seniors with a built-in social network of their peers. They can enjoy the company of others who are living in the same facility and share their experiences. Aperion Care offers social events and games that are open for participation to all residents.
Cleaning and housekeeping can be very difficult task for many elderly people. Yosef Meystel states that, the staff of Aperion Care is taking care of laundry service, dry cleaning and general cleaning services.
Following a popper diet and meeting the nutrition requirements can be difficult if the senior people are living alone. At Aperion Care meal plans are designed to cater to different tastes and dietary requirements of its residents. The meals are prepared with the help of a licensed dietitian to ensure that their residents are enjoying a healthy and balanced diet.
Health care services
The greatest and most crucial advantage of living in a nursing home are the personalized health care services offered 24/7. These services typically include regular administration of daily prescriptions, medical attention when needed, emergency medical services, 24-hour health monitoring services etc.
Aperion Care is staffed by registered nurses and personnel. They have the ability to provide specialized health care to senior suffering from serious diseases, such as dementia, Parkinson’s, cancer or diabetes. The level of the individualized care goes above and beyond the care that family members can provide.
As people are getting older, they can become targets of physical, emotional and financial abuse. Aperion Care offers seniors a protected environment to help insulate them from possible abuse. They are always supervised and their safety is guaranteed.
Access to resources
Aperion Care’s nursing home staff will help residents find the information they need quickly and efficiently. They don’t have to worry about learning how to use the internet or holding on the phone while trying to obtain information.
Relieving your family
Many family members don’t have time to care for the elderly parents or relatives. They have their own lives with busy work schedules, children, obligations, etc. Often, they don’t have enough time to attend to their own personal lives and at the same time provide constant care to their elderly family members. By living in a nursing home seniors are taking a burden off the family members. Also, they are provided with professional care 24/7.
Beautiful interior and exterior
Many of the nursing facilities provide beautiful interior and exterior with all the amenities that are facilitating the life of the elderly people.
Recently Aperion Care opened a new luxurious nursing facility in Illinois. This nursing facility offers a luxurious exterior and interior, highly accessible and suited for comfortable operation, even for residents who have physical difficulties. The concept is based on hotel accommodation, but it is also fully equipped with medical equipment and aids for tenants who will need such help.
