Locating Senior Living Can Be a Confusing Task
The amount of information there is to know on independent, assisted living, and memory care facilities can be a lot to take in. There are so many questions to ask and questions you might not even know to ask. Educating yourself about the different licenses in the state of Florida is a good start when beginning the search. All Assisted Living facilities in Florida are regulated by and must attain a license from the Agency for Health Care Administration. In the state of Florida, there are three main assisted living types: Standard, Limited Nursing, and Extended Congregate Care. The different license types simply mean the different levels of care a community can accept. For example, your loved one may need a higher level of care or more around the clock care with 24 hour nursing on site and not all facilities have nurses present all 24 hours. A nurse might start in the morning but will leave at the end of the day in some homes. Choosing a community that possesses the type of license your loved one needs is very pertinent. Peace of mind can go a long way knowing your loved one is in the right Florida home provided with the right care.
