Assisted Living FAQs Answered for Both Potential Residents & Their Loved Ones

Published

on

Having made the decision to move to professional, established, and renowned assisted living facilities, yourself and your loved ones will still have a barrage of questions that perhaps either simply didn’t occur to you at the time of your tour or you felt unable to ask at the time.

With that being said, continue reading for some popular frequently asked questions surrounding assisted living and their answers for both potential residents and their loved ones.

 

1.   What Kind of Social Activities Are There to Choose From?

 

Naturally, the social diary of an assisted living community varies from place to place, but generally, there is a wide range of both community-led and independent hobbies, activities, and other enjoyable pastimes to choose from.

A selection of such social activities include, but are obviously in no way limited to:

  • Educational classes
  • Animal therapy
  • Crafting
  • Day trips
  • Movie evenings
  • Games nights
  • Volunteering in and around the local community
  • Low-impact exercise classes

 

2.   How Safe & Secure Are the Facilities?

 

Obviously, apart from memory care facilities which have different security parameters, residents are free to come and go in and out of their senior living community to suit.

Through the night, assisted living facilities have on-site security, and often such security professionals are present twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

 

3.   Can Loved Ones Visit Whenever They Desire?

 

Generally, visiting times at professional and established assisted living facilities such as assisted living New Jersey are free and easy, although obviously through the night, as nearly all of the residents will be asleep in bed, the doors are secure, and people can only visit in an emergency.

Additionally, every single visitor to an assisted living community must sign in at the reception as a matter of safety and security for the residents and staff alike.

 

4.   Are the Staff Fully Trained?

 

All staff at established and prestigious assisted living facilities are fully trained to provide excellent care and assistance to each and every resident.

Furthermore, there is nearly always one or more medically trained professionals on-site 24/7, and most assisted living facilities provide transport to and from the nearest hospital whenever needed or desired.

 

5.   Is There Always an Opportunity for Private Time?

 

Assisted living facilities always provide self-contained apartments with their own private front door for residents.

Absolutely nothing on the social and community schedule is compulsory, and instead, every resident is free to essentially do exactly what they like, when they like. If and when a resident wants to dine alone one evening, for example, their meal will be brought to their apartment where they can eat in peace.

Making the move to an assisted living community offers a wide plethora of advantages to yourself or your loved one who is struggling to cope running their own home and living wholly independently and provides a nurturing, caring, social and peaceful way of life.

Published

on

Manufacturing is an industry that is constantly going through change. Consumer trends, technological developments, new regulations, and global events like COVID-19 can all impact and change the manufacturing industry. This leads to new trends that emerge each year that dominate in the industry. As the owner of a manufacturing business, you want to be ahead of the curve with these trends so that you can adapt and prepare your business. This could help you to take advantage of trends and find ways to reach new levels of success with your business. So, what are a few of the main manufacturing trends that will emerge in 2022?

Cobots

Businesses in the manufacturing industry are behind the times if they have not yet embraced automation. The next trend in this area will be the rise of cobots, which are robots that can actually collaborate and work alongside staff. These will start to become prevalent in 2022 and can help to increase productivity, lower costs and improve safety, amongst many other benefits.

Green Manufacturing

It is clear that now is the time for action when it comes to reducing environmental impact, and the manufacturing industry is one that is often singled out when it comes to damage.

Businesses are always racing to create the best products, and ETOX is an innovative product that could help a company to improve the quality of its goods.

Cybersecurity

Cybercrime has become a major global issue in recent times that has been accelerated by COVID-19. Manufacturing is an industry that has been frequently targeted with the rise of IoT and connected devices, which is why cybersecurity needs to be a major trend in 2022. This will involve businesses investing in high-quality cybersecurity products but also providing staff training so that they can carry out their role safely and avoid common scams.

3D Printing

3D printing is getting bigger with each year, and the same will be true in 2022. This can be used in all kinds of ways, including the fast production of prototypes and components. 3D printing can be used in all niches of manufacturing and even in some food products.

These are a few of the main manufacturing trends that will emerge in 2022. Being aware of these now will help you to prepare and make adaptations that will help 2022 to be a successful year for your company.

A Guide To IDDSI

Published

on

If you, a close friend, family member, or other loved one have recently been diagnosed with dysphagia or else have been living with the condition for a while, it could be incredibly frustrating to attempt to convey how you feel and the problem you have to people who are blessed not to suffer from problems swallowing.

With that in mind, continue reading this guide to IDDSI and how it can help your dysphagia.

IDDSI Explained

The International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiative framework, far more commonly known as IDDSI, is essentially a non-profit organization that issues a standardized set of directives, help, and advice tailor-made for those living with dysphagia or similar swallowing-related issues

The IDDSI has been instrumental in the naming and categorization of dysphagia friendly foods and thickening agents, such as SimplyThick packets, and has been credited with genuinely making the lives of people living which dysphagia significantly easier and more enjoyable.

The 8 Levels Of IDDSI

There is a basic framework created, established, and promoted by the IDDSI, which enables those suffering from problems chewing and swallowing to more accurately ascertain which foodstuffs and liquids are best suited for them. This framework is essentially divided into eight levels; levels zero to four are for the measuring of liquids, and levels three to seven are used to measure foodstuffs.

Level 1

Drinks and liquids that are classified as being situated at ‘Level 1’ of the IDDSI framework are generally slightly thicker in consistency. They tend to be slighter thicker than water, and although they require more effort to drink, they can still be sucked through a straw.

Level 2

 

Liquids that are classified as ‘Level 2’ are mildly thick, though they will still easily flow from a spoon. Level 2 liquids require only mild effort to drink.

Level 3

Characteristics of ‘Level 3’ drinks are that they can still be drunk from a cup but are moderately thick and so cannot be molded, piped, or layered. Chewing is not required with drinks at Level 3, and it would be impossible to eat such a liquid.

Level 4

The characteristics of substances classified as being situated at ‘Level 4’ of the IDDSI framework are extremely thick and often pureed foodstuffs. If tongue control is a problem with a person who is living from dysphagia, this may be the best level at which to consume food and drink.

Level 5

Minced and moist foodstuffs make up most items classified as ‘Level 5,’ and the substances can all be scooped and shaped to suit the individual. Additionally, only minimal chewing is required foodstuffs that fall into this level of the framework.

Level 6

‘Level 6’ foodstuffs are generally bite-sized and soft and can therefore be broken down and mashed with cutlery, although they do still require a certain level of chewing.

Level 7

Foods at ‘Level 7’ are easy to chew and are basically normal, everyday foodstuffs with tender textures.

Level 8

Food classified at ‘Level 8’ is typical everyday food that people who do not have any swallowing or eating difficulties can manage.
