Levels of Care

The level of living is going to be determined by the 6 Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).

Levels of Care:

  • Independent Living
  • Assisted Living
  • Skilled Nursing
  • Hospice

Independent Living

Potentially provides in-home medical services and promotes independent living.  Also helps with recovery from a potential illness or injury as well as offer training and licensed nurses, home health aids and therapists.  Often assists with daily life activities and offers companionship.

Assisted Living

Skilled Nursing

Offers trained and registered health professionals providing skilled medical care and assistance with daily living activities.  Nutritional meals, recreation and social activities are also included.  The average cost is approximately $250 per day for a private room and $200 per day for a shared room.

Hospice

Focuses on individuals with life expectancies of six months or less.  High level of attention is paid to pain relief.  Counseling is offered to family members addressing their emotional needs.
