Who is a good fit for assisted living in Tennessee?

Assisted living is a great option for seniors who need extra support or who need assistance with day-to-day tasks. Every senior is different and each situation is unique. However, there are a few signs that assisted living could be the best (and healthiest) next decision for you or your loved one.

Regularly feeling unstable or experiencing a recent fall, chronic pain or other conditions that are becoming harder to manage, feelings of loneliness or isolation—especially when you still want to be social: these are all characteristics of someone who would benefit from a move into an assisted living community. If you’re trying to determine if the time is right, give us a call; our team is here to help.

What is the difference between independent living and assisted living at Opus?

Both options can foster independence, ease caregiver stress and help seniors live longer, healthier lives. You can have your own private apartment in each living arrangement, but there are also important differences. 

Independent living at Opus East Memphis is all about lifestyle preference—not a form of senior care. It can provide some peace of mind to seniors who no longer feel comfortable living alone, or who are looking for a more active community to call home. Independent living communities are usually more affordable, but unlikely to be covered by Medicare, Medicaid or insurance. Involvement with staff is largely dependent on your preferences, and this senior living option does not provide access to medical or nursing care.

Assisted living is a good option for people who are no longer able to live alone, but do not need intensive nursing care. Residents still enjoy privacy and independence, but help is available 24/7 with the simple push of a button, and our team members will assist them with basic life tasks. Assisted living typically costs more than independent living, but is more likely to be covered by long-term-care insurance, employee benefits programs and Medicaid. 

If you have questions about these different types of senior living at Opus, or would like help determining which might be the best fit for you or your loved one, please contact us. We’re happy to help!

What is the difference between assisted living and dementia care at Opus?

Both dementia or memory care and assisted living offer supportive care to people with a range of health issues, including cognitive impairments. Memory care, however, caters specifically to those with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia through dementia-friendly activities and staff trained in the psychological and physical effects of cognitive impairments. To understand the key differences, you may find this article from The Arbor Company Blog helpful.

If you have questions about these different types of senior living at Opus, or would like help determining which might be the best fit for you or your loved one, please contact us. We’re happy to help!

Are assisted living apartments furnished at Opus East Memphis?

Aside from kitchenette appliances, the assisted living apartments at Opus do not come furnished. Our senior living community is designed to be reminiscent of home, and we encourage residents to bring their own belongings, including a bed and smaller pieces of furniture. For more information on what to bring—and what not to bring—when moving in, read this article from The Arbor Company Blog!

Are assisted living expenses tax deductible?

In most cases, only the medical costs of an assisted living community are deductible. Living costs like room and board are not. However, there are exceptions if the resident is in the assisted living facility primarily for medical care, in which case, part or all of assisted living costs may qualify for the medical expense tax deduction. We recommend consulting a tax advisor with questions regarding your specific circumstances.
