“Although assisted living communities may have memory care units on the premises, the two types of care are not synonymous.
Memory care is a distinct form of long-term skilled nursing that specifically caters to patients with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other types of memory problems. Also called special care units (SCU's), memory care units usually provide 24-hour supervised care within a separate wing or floor of a residential facility.”
1. Generally assisted living facilities are compared to nursing homes. But are they really same? Is there any major difference between the types of services offered? Let’s find out what differentiates it from a nursing home. You could already be caring for them, but you should understand the difficulties involved in their future. Most people end up choosing options like assisted living homes or nursing homes when they can no longer balance their schedule with the needs of their loved ones.
2.Assisted living facilities are special homes for elderly people. Unlike nursing homes these are homes for those who cannot perform their regular daily life chores. Here your parents will be aided in everything ranging from going to bathroom, bathing, cooking, and even eating. Let's explore some major differences.
3.Assisted living homes provide excellent services in terms of medical assistance. Most of them have hired expert professionals who are specialist in taking care of the senior citizens and can handle all urgent medical needs. It is a great alternative to nursing homes, saving seniors from a dull living environment.
4.Being well organized by professional people, these homes take care of all the personal stuff, making seniors happy in every possible way. Many seniors enjoy being a part of these activities. In case they don’t want to socialize, they can enjoy their privacy. If you wish your parents are happy and healthy, these homes can truly be a good choice.
5.It caters proper care for the elderly, serving them with an environment which gives them an ultimate sense of freedom. While these facilities render assistance with medication, they will get periodic housekeeping and timely meals. If you have an elderly or senior needing help, these facilities can provide proper assistance. Without a doubt, it will offer assistance of living a healthy and happy life without taking away their freedom.

anything that bills itself as a “Chill Tonic” can’t all be bad.

Editor’s note: While the following editorial focuses mainly on the food and food service here at the assisted living facility at which I am a resident, it should be noted that many of the problems prevalent at our venue are representative of other facilities where older Americans live.

Facebook is trying to make it easier to get in touch with people over Messenger, so it's rolling out a number of new ways to start chatting. As with all Facebook accounts, all Messenger accounts will now have dedicated links that people can visit to start a chat — they'll all be located at m.me/[username]. Facebook is also rolling out what it calls Messenger Codes, which are Messenger's equivalent to Snapchat's snapcodes. They look pretty neat: Messenger Codes are just a series of dots and dashes circling around your profile photo. When someone scans one with their camera, it'll presumably add that person as a contact.

“In cities, small row houses went up in great numbers in the first half of the century. Virtually all of them had parlours. The average urban row house was narrow, usually only 15-20 feet across, and extending back for 30-40 feet. With mounting pressure for effective land utilization, row houses became more narrow and deeper over time. For example, two 25 foot lots were divided into three.
Lot sizes began to grow after the turn of the century. Early 20th century bungalows were one-storey or storey and a half dwellings of between 600 and 800 square feet.”

You may be surprised how a happy a simpler life can make you!
“As with so many things, success rests in the emotions.
(Janet) Hulstrand says they’ve talked to quite a few professionals who say that it is not uncommon for people to postpone moving out of their homes simply because the prospect of dealing with all their accumulated stuff is just too daunting. “It keeps people from moving even when they know that is the best thing for them to do,” she reports.
Then she confirmed my hunch that the piano was more than a piano: “Some items have special sentimental meaning; perhaps they represent unfinished business or an unfulfilled dream of some kind. That can make letting go of certain objects really hard to do.”
Sounding more like a great therapist than downsizing expert, she says if that’s the case, “It might be time to realize that your life went a different way than what you envisioned originally or that you actually never are going to have the time to do x, y, or z. And that’s OK.”
