  • What’s the Difference Between Memory Care & Assisted Living in Kansas City?
    Assisted Living is a “level of care” providing residents assistance with their activities of daily living. Memory Care is a “type of care” that can be found at various levels of care, including the Assisted Living level. The staff in Memory Care has special training to better care for residents with dementia, Alzheimer's, or another form of memory loss or cognitive impairment. A memory care community, or an Assisted Living community that has a designated Memory Care neighborhood, is likely the better option if your loved one has cognitive impairment. An assisted living community offering general care and NOT memory care is better for those who still wish to live independently but need help with daily living tasks.
  • What are the Benefits of Assisted Living?
    Your loved one can expect to receive a similar amount of care at an assisted living community as they were in their home from a caregiver, but with added benefits. These benefits include: Enhanced social life Reliable transportation Additional recreational activities Assistance with housekeeping and laundry Distribution of medication 24-hour care Doctors making house calls For a more in-depth overview of how an assisted living community can benefit your loved one, contact Senior Care Consulting at (913) 945-2800 today.
  • How Long is a Typical Assisted Living Commitment?
    Assisted living communities usually don’t require any form of commitment and operate on a month-to-month basis. Depending on the assisted living community, the terms and conditions should be expressed during your visit. Senior Care Consulting will help to answer any questions you may have before you make your final decision.
