We are NOT a Facility...
Camellia Assisted Living has been caring for seven years now. We have earned a wonderful reputation for being "the most family oriented home I've seen". I quote from the many visitors and residents and their families.
We are a well selected group of seniors. Three women and three men. All on walkers but all independent on their own way.
Please call for a tour. As of December 11th we have one room available. This is the first vacancy we have had in three years.
Searching for assisted living in California, Sacramento area?
Located in Fair Oaks, We're close to Carmichael, Folsom, Gold River, Citrus Heights, Orangevale, and Roseville. We serve the elderly housing community.
Large facilities exist, Emeritus, Sunrise Senior Living or Eskaton may serve more independent living seniors who prefer to live in an apartment type setting.
Skilled Nursing homes are on the far opposite end of the scale and now offers mostly Rehabilitation Services. Then release seniors to an assisted living facility, retirement community, or home.
Most seniors want to go back home. We can get you in touch with a Home Care Provider if that's your need, but there are less expensive options for the services provided.
How to speak with your aging parent.
Of course most seniors want to stay at home. The most difficult conversation is the one you must have with your parents. They have lost their spouse, their right to drive, and now their home?!?
They may have had a fall, you're noticing the house isn't as clean as mom used to keep it, or she mentions all these medications are getting confusing. There are a lot of signs it may be time to move into a more safe situation.
Think about it from the other end of the scale, you would never allow your children to remain in an unsafe situation trusting they'll be okay.
If your having concerns your probably right to.
How do we meet the needs of your folks?
A better quality of life for them and you. You can't do it all yourself. You have a life too.
Beyond just the basics of cooking, shopping and cleaning. We go out to restaurants, drive as a group to Apple Hill, see the Christmas lights on Dove Court, and go to the Fair Oaks Chicken Festival.
We are conveniently located near old town Fair Oaks
Nobody expects to be "institutionalized".
When you can reduce it to moving them from the house they expected to pass away in, to "someone else's home" it can be disheartening
After the initial shock, they realize that there's comfort and safety for them. Companionship and an easy predictable schedule.
I must say a lot of residents take it in stride and immediately enjoy their new surroundings. Good food, no more cleaning, and friends to talk with or play games.
Home Care is not a bad option for those who demand to stay at home. A caregiver arrives at their home with groceries. All needs are attended to; cooking meals, cleaning the home, dishes, laundry, medication management, and friendship.
This can be an expensive option. Hiring through an agency will cost about $19.00 an hour. Why? They cover the liability insurance, workman's comp, IRS filings, taxes and many other state requirements like Department of Justice and Criminal clearances.
If you hire someone on your own it will look like you can save some money, however you are now their legal employer, you are responsible to pay workman's compensation, if they are injured on the job you are responsible for all their medical expenses. I've heard horror stories about these situations, be careful.
