5 Tips for Making Assisted Living Affordable

Posted on: August 10th, 2018 by hhmin

Financing Assisted LivingWhen caring for a loved one becomes too difficult for a family to properly do, assisted living is usually the next ideal step. Although the safety and comfort of senior living is a goal for many of our loved ones, sometimes the price point of a retirement home can leave a family feeling cornered.

While most senior living communities are not negotiable when it comes to a price tag, the good news is that there are several ways to plan and approach the cost of assisted living that make the finances more manageable.

1. Don’t Be Afraid to Sell Your Home

Some people who enter a retirement community leave behind a home that stays in the family. One excellent option for helping to ease the financial process of assisted living is simply selling the home and using the funds to help finance your community needs. Most people entering into assisted living are leaving behind homes that they don’t plan on using. After discussing with your heirs, if everyone is comfortable with the decision to sell, this is an excellent way to approach your future expenses.

2. Shop Around for What You Can Afford

When shopping for any good, most people don’t usually go with the first option that they see. Looking for the most affordable good should always be a key goal. Looking for a senior living or assisted living home is no different.

When looking for a Houston retirement home that fits your price range, don’t be afraid to treat the process like you are interviewing an employee. Shop around, ask questions, and make sure you know what you can afford before signing on the dotted line.

3. Leverage Your Life Insurance Policy

If your loved one has been paying for a life insurance policy for more than ten years, borrowing from the policy is a viable option to help pay for assisted living. As long as you understand that there will be less money, in the end, to pass on to the heirs, then this is a great way to get some extra money without racking up debt.

4. Are You a Veteran?

Knowing the veteran status of yourself or your loved one considering assisted living can help you afford the cost. Veteran benefit eligibility of veterans or veteran survivors means that there may be access to an increase in their monthly pension benefits. Speak with your local VFW association to understand what the various criteria are to gain extra funds from benefits.

5. Find Out How Their Services Are Charged

Knowing how an assisted living home charges for their services is important to understand how you will be able to pay for the service. By examining your loved one’s needs, you will be able to ask the right questions on how they will charge you for specific care. Is pricing a la carte or upfront? These options matter and should not be ignored during the decision process.

Tips for Keeping Your Loved Ones in Assisted Living Feeling Young

Posted on: January 5th, 2018 by hhmin

Staying Young with Assisted LivingAssisted living is a great way to ensure that your loved one receives the proper care that they deserve as they age. However, sometimes the number involved with the age can take a toll on a person’s mental and emotional health and they begin to “feel” old in their community.

Age is nothing but a number, and the adage that you are only as old as you feel is true. Here are some of our tips for keeping your assisted living loved one feeling young at heart.

Aging is an Opportunity with Assisted Living

A recent study published in the US National Library of Medicine shows that older individuals who see aging as a positive experience to enjoy life through new perspectives lived 7.5 years longer than those who viewed aging as a negative process. By helping your loved one view age as just a number, you could help lead them into a healthier emotional and physical life as they continue to age.

Don’t Act Your Age

Age is nothing but a number. Many things in life can be enjoyed by anyone of any age. Take comedy for example. The next time you visit your loved one at their assisted living community, take the latest joke ready to tell or have a funny viral YouTube video saved in your history to show your loved one. Keep your family member feeling young by forgetting that there are age requirements on fun activities that you can choose to do together.

Turn Down Mobility Aids

Some seniors are required to make use of mobility aids like wheelchairs and walkers to get around.

If your loved one can get around without any pain and just moves a little slower than they used to, take the time to slow down with them and encourage that they walk around with you and only turn to mobility aids if they begin to feel pain or just grow too tired.

Set Healthy Goals

Goals are an important way to establish a regimen that will help your loved one feel physically and mentally younger as the days go by. Make sure that when setting these goals, you are focusing on healthy ways to improve your loved one’s life at their age. Help them pick up a new or forgotten hobby, or learn a new language together via online courses.

5 Brain Stimulating Activities for Seniors in Assisted Living

Posted on: December 22nd, 2017 by hhmin

Brain Stimulating Activities in Assisted LivingLiving in an assisted living community definitely has its emotional and physical perks for loved ones who utilize a community’s services. However, there are always reasons to keep up with brain stimulation, especially as loved ones begin to grow older. It is important to stimulate the brain in order to maintain cognitive function, preserve memory, and keep up the overall happiness of your loved one in assisted living.

Here are 5 simple brain stimulating activity ideas that you can use while your loved one is enjoying being cared for in an assisted living community.

Computerized Games

While this doesn’t necessarily mean video games, those can also be a mentally stimulating activity. These days, most seniors have iPads or smart phones that they use to entertain themselves via app games or other similar activities. Popular games include Words With Friends, Candy Crush, and good old fashioned Solitaire.

Pen and Paper Puzzles

Not all senior citizens are comfortable with using electronics to stimulate their mental health and entertain themselves. Little known to many younger tablet users, there was always pen and paper puzzles that people used to stay mentally active. Before your next visit, feel free to visit a local bookstore and pick up books with:

  • Crossword Puzzles,
  • Sudoku,
  • Word Search, or
  • Standard Puzzles.


When visiting with your family member, you have plenty of opportunities to stimulate his or her mental health through storytelling, organizing their apartment, and above all, cooking. On your next visit, take up some old family cookbooks as a way to boost your loved one’s memory.

By walking through the creation of a favorite recipe with your loved one, you are not only boosting his or her mental health, but you are also physically helping their muscle memory during the creation process of the dish. Take the time to enjoy this meal around the dinner table and share some of the family stories behind the reason behind the popularity of the family recipe.

Social Settings in Assisted Living

Sometimes family cannot visit as often as they would like to and that is why we always have social activities going on at our senior living communities. It is important that your loved one gets involved in community activities and makes friends with their fellow community members.

Social settings are a great way to get conversations started about who people are and from where they came. This alone is a memory stimulating experience. So, if you can’t personally visit on a regular basis, try to encourage your loved one to go out and about during their time at Holly Hall.

Holly Hall is Dedicated to Keeping Your Mind Stimulated

If your loved one is beginning to show signs of a fading memory or is becoming increasingly bored at home, it may be time to consider assisted living to improve their wellness. At Holly Hall, we can ensure you that your loved one will be treated like family and that our Christian beliefs will show through their mental, physical, and emotional care in our communities.

Thank Your Loved One in Senior Assisted Living this Thanksgiving

Posted on: November 7th, 2017 by hhmin

Thanksgiving at Assisted LivingWith October in the rearview mirror and a family-filled November on the horizon, Thanksgiving is the next big holiday for your loved one in senior assisted living to look forward to. Yes, this holiday brings about family gatherings, traditional dishes, and delightful desserts; but there is also so much more that can be done with your loved one.

This season, prior to your visit with your family member in senior assisted living, talk with the members of your family and come up with some ways to thank your loved one and show them that they are appreciated. Here are some of our favorite ideas for this time of the year.

Tell Them Thank You

Simply letting your loved one know that they have made an impact on your life is one way to help spread the Thanksgiving joy. You don’t have to have an elaborate expression of gratitude in order for it to be meaningful for your senior assisted living family member.

While they are definitely getting the best treatment and emotional care in their community, your personal expression of thanks is one that will make them feel absolute love and appreciation.

Take a Family Picture

Family photos at holiday events are lifelong traditions no matter where a member of the family ends up. Schedule some time with your loved one to sit down and take a family photo. Getting the whole family together can be a rare moment, and by organizing this event and documenting it, you are showing your loved one that they are a special member of your family.

Do Some Favors Around the House

If you are visiting your loved one in assisted living or an independent living community, you have the opportunity to express your thanks through action. Look around their living quarters and find little ways to help them out. Do some of their dishes, re-organize their refrigerator, make sure their television is set to their specifications. Even though your assisted living coordinators take all of the steps needed to care for your loved one, just having you come in and do little favors for them helps promote your gratitude and love.

Write Them a Personal Letter

Giving thanks to your loved one should be an intimate experience and a time of personal reflection. One way to really personalize this moment is to write your loved one in a retirement home a heartfelt letter. In this letter you can talk about a favorite memory with your loved one, or talk about the reasons why you enjoy visiting them in their community.

Holly Hall Retirement Community Thanks You for Letting Us into Your Family

If you have found yourself at a crossroad with your loved one and feel they need more care than you can presently offer, reach out to Holly Hall to schedule a visit to our community today. We are a Christian-centered retirement home that believes in treating your loved one like our own family. For any questions about our services, give us a call.

4 Immune System Boosters for Loved Ones in Senior Care Centers

Posted on: October 23rd, 2017 by hhmin

Senior Assisted Living Flu SeasonFlu season can be a nightmare for seniors enjoying life in their assisted living community. Yes, it is bad enough when you are a younger person to be affected by this illness, but as a senior citizen, a simple flu or even the common cold can lead to some pretty disastrous consequences.

Here are some of the best ways that you can help your loved ones in assisted living facilities get through flu season without catching a single chill. These simple ways to boost the immune system of your loved one will help them to remain healthy, happy, and comfortable throughout the cooler seasons.

1. Always Get Vaccinated

At this time of the year, the flu shot is always available to those who want to avoid missing out on life due to the sickness. We recommend that you get your loved one vaccinated as well. There are specific flu shots for members of the community aged 65 and up that provide stronger protection against the flu than the average vaccination.

2. Get Plenty of Sleep While Enjoying Senior Assisted Living

Sleep is the body’s natural immune system booster. Make sure that your loved one in assisted living is getting their required amount of sleep. By getting the maximum number of hours of sleep, your body responds better to stress, inflammation, and improved response to the flu vaccine.

3. Wash Your Hands

No matter how pristine your independent living community is, your loved one is liable to come into contact with thousands of germs a day. Spreading germs is one of the most common ways to catch the flu.

Avoid spreading germs by reminding your loved one to constantly wash their hands after touching hand rails, lunch trays, or going to the restroom. Also, if your loved one has friends who have the flu or a cold, make sure that they keep their distance. This is especially true when travelling in cars, elevators, or anywhere where large groups of people meet.

4. Eat the Right Things

From superfoods to multivitamins, what your loved one puts into their body can help them boost their immune system during this risky season. Certain foods that are great to incorporate into a diet as superfoods include:

  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Avocados
  • Mushrooms
  • Berries

Eat Healthy to Stay BoostedAlso, as seniors, multivitamins and herbal supplements can be extremely beneficial to add to a well-balanced diet. These can help increase the nutrients of a diet and ward off infection. However, it is important to note that vitamins and herbal supplements can counteract medications that someone over 65 is taking. It is always important to tell your loved one’s primary care physician before incorporating any new vitamins or supplements into their daily routine.

3 Major Health Benefits of Assisted Living Facilities

Posted on: October 4th, 2017 by hhmin

Making the decision to move your loved one from in-home care to a retirement home can be one that sparks several conflicting feelings among family members.

“Will your loved one be well taken care of? What can an assisted living facility provide that family can’t?” are some of the questions that may arise. We understand that taking this step represents a new stage in your loved one’s life, and we are here to let you and your loved one know that moving to senior living apartments or a retirement home can be extremely beneficial to his or her health.

Whether your loved one is an independent living candidate, or a person who requires more attention from an assisted living community, we believe that the benefits of a senior living community exist for the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of your loved one’s life.

1. Proper Nutrition About in Assisted Living FacilitiesAssisted Living Nutrition

At Holly Hall, we believe in providing the proper nutrition for your family member in assisted living. We understand that even in independent living, planning a daily menu and grocery shopping can become a burdensome task as aging occurs.

At a senior living community, members can receive three meals a day that represent the changing palates that age brings. An assisted living facility is able to access fresh foods and have them prepared by professional on-site chefs.

2. Safe Facilities

Safety is key as your loved one begins to age. The decision to have them moved to a retirement home may have been based on the enhanced health risk of living at home alone.

With assisted living, your loved one can thrive in a community that is built around the safety of seniors. Your loved one will be able to take advantage of proper lighting, grab bars in bathrooms, emergency systems, handrails in the hallway, and more. The health benefits of senior living at an assisted living facility are plentiful, from the extra safety precautions involved, to licensed staff available to assist when called upon.

3. Reduced StressReduced Stress Assisted Living

Even seniors who are on the more independent side may find it difficult to keep up with the daily stressors of keeping up a completely independent home environment. From housekeeping to home maintenance, things can easily become a struggle and a hazard.

By getting your loved one enrolled in independent living, you are opening them up to an environment that has been designed especially for their comfort.

Your loved one will be able to enjoy their golden years without having to worry about the stress of mowing lawns, taking care of landscaping, or dealing with home repairs. Instead, they can make new friends and simply enjoy every day that they have at our community doing the things that they love.

Summer Tips for Visiting Loved Ones in Their Assisted Living Community

Posted on: July 26th, 2017 by hhmin

Summer in Houston is a time for enjoying time with family and friends, but don’t forget to include quality time with your loved ones at an assisted living or retirement community.  We at Holly Hall understand that these visits aren’t always as simple as dropping in on your family member.  Read through our tips on planning your visit and making the most of your time spent with your  loved one.

Plan Your Assisted Living Visit

Relatives hoping to visit with loved ones in assisted living must remember to plan their trip out in advance.  Regardless of if your loved one is across the state or across town, making a plan with your family member of when your visit will take place is important.  Many people in assisted living communities not only follow a potential schedule, but may have energy boosts during specific times of the day.  Remember, they are your family member, they love you, and want to be able to give all of their available energy to your visit.

When planning your visit to a relative in assisted living, take into consideration their current health situation.  You know your family member best, so keep their physical and mental state in mind when planning the length of your visit.  Sometimes a shorter visit with happy conversation is better than a longer visit with long silences because the energy of your relative in assisted living is depleted.

Bring Comforting Items with You

Assisted living, while comfortable and accommodating for your relative, may require a sense of home in some cases.  When you visit your family member, bring some gifts with you that can remind them of their importance in your life.  Bringing family photos, recipes that you have shared together, movies, or even an old collectible that can strike up a conversation.  Bringing along items like this will not only comfort your relative but also takes the pressure off of you for having to come up with a conversation starter.

Tips for Visiting Assisted Living RelativesBe Present with your Assisted Living Loved One

Don’t rush your visit with your family member.  They have most likely missed your company and are excited for this planned visit.  Slow down the daily rush and take time to enjoy a quiet, deep conversation as a family.  Pay attention to your body language.  Don’t take out your phone or fidget with another object.  This can make your loved one think that you may not want to really be there with them.  Be 100 percent present with your loved on in an assisted living community and make the most of your visit with them.

Welcome the Chance to Evaluate Health

Visits are a chance for you to keep your family member feeling active and involved with your life.  However, it is also important for you to remember that you need to be involved in their life.  Take the time when visiting a loved one in an assisted living community to step back and evaluate your family member’s health.

Signs It’s Time for Assisted Living

Posted on: September 29th, 2016 by hhmin

Age-related diseases and maladies can make it difficult or even impossible for a retiree or senior to live alone. Problems like dementia and mobility problems can also create difficult living environments when children or loved ones must care for a senior relative who is no longer ambulatory.

At a certain point, discussions about assisted living, in-home nursing care, and other options for assistance become necessary. Concerns regarding cost and the ability of the family to afford assisted living can create stressful situations, but keeping the aged family member safe remains important, particularly when the family member begins showing any of the following signs.

Stress and Health of the Caregiver

Although it’s not a health problem experienced by the senior, stress experienced by a caregiver can prove harmful to the caregiver, as well as the person who needs daily assistance. Stress may have debilitating physical effects on the caregiver, which means the ability to care for the person who needs help may be negatively impacted, too. Although it may feel heart-wrenching to think about assisted living, the health of the caregiver and the person receiving care may depend on it.

Needs That Require Professional AssistanceNursing Care Houston, TX

For many familial caregivers, basic needs are things that don’t necessarily require professional assistance. Responsibilities like cooking, basic hygiene, and reminding someone to take their medication are projects that may be accomplished without fear of keeping the senior in good health. At a certain point, a person’s needs may become so great that the best person to offer assistance is someone with experience in healthcare. The availability of an immediately available medical staff may also become important.

Safety in the Home

Today’s seniors have access to a wealth of in-home options that can help them lead a safer life when they remain at home. Non-slip floors, walk-in tubs, and homes that don’t have stairs can help a senior remain safe, even when a caregiver is away at work for the day. However, during the aging process, it’s essential to consider alternative accommodations or assisted living before an accident happens.

Issues with Aggression and Abuse

A problem like dementia may allow a formerly loving individual to become verbally or physically abusive. Not only is it difficult for the senior to remain on good terms with his or her family or caregiver, but the abuse may also create resentment in the family that leads to a reduction in the quality of care he or she receives. Allowing a skilled professional in a retirement community to administer care is a great alternative. 

Experiencing “Sundowner Syndrome”

It’s a classic sign of Alzheimer’s Disease, and Sundowner Syndrome, or “Sundowning,” occurs when a person becomes increasingly incoherent as the day turns into evening. A person who seems completely at ease and coherent in the morning may become confused, agitated, and unable to function without complete assistance by the evening.

A Habit of Wandering

There are frequent stories that hit the news where an elderly person goes missing because he or she wanders away from home or becomes confused while out of the house. One of the scariest things about caring for a person who has a habit of wandering is that they can disappear in the length of time it takes a family member to go to the bathroom and return.

Consider a Beautiful Retirement Community

Are you and a loved one considering assisted living? Do you want to give your elderly family member the best life possible? Are you reaching an age where you believe a retirement community may offer you the comfort and safety you require?

15 Questions to Ask When Choosing an Assisted Living Facility

Posted on: August 25th, 2016 by hhmin

15 Questions to Ask When Choosing an Assisted Living FacilityWhen searching for an assisted living facility, it is important that you come prepared. Whether you are actually touring the community or are just speaking with someone over the phone, you need to be equipped with questions.

With every assisted living community having its own unique qualities and amenities, it is ideal that you ask as many questions as you can to help you determine which is right for your loved one. However, ensuring that you do not miss the most pertinent ones can be hard. To help, we have put together a list of the top 15 questions you need to ask when choosing an assisted living facility.

Assisted Living Questions

Question 1: What experience and training does your staff have?

Having an experienced and trained staff should be really high on your list when choosing a facility for your retirement-aged senior. By asking this question, you can put yourself at ease knowing that your loved one will be in good hands.

Question 2: How many staff members are on duty at night?

Usually, since things are calmer, most facilities choose to have less staff available overnight. This is why it is important to know what the staff-resident ratio will be during these hours.

Question 3: Which staff members can administer medications?

There is a possibility that at some point during your loved one’s residence, they will need to take medication. Whether it is something serious or minor, you want to ensure the people that administer the meds at the assisted living community have the best experience and education when doing so.

Question 4: Are nurses available 24/7?

Nurses are very important at a senior living facility as they are in charge of the examinations, tests, and medical management. When going through your choices, keep this in mind.

Question 5: Are you able to care for a patient with  _____ diagnosis?

If your loved one is diagnosed with a certain illness, be sure to ask specifically if they have experience dealing with it.

Question 6: Is there an initial admissions assessment?

Most facilities have an assessment that is required before the admission of a new resident, however, ask to be sure.

Question 7: What types of living plans are available?

Next to staffing and medical care, your loved one’s living situation is another highly important factor. Discuss with the facility their living options and take those back to your loved one to see what they feel will be most comfortable.

Question 8: What is the monthly cost?

For some families, figuring out how to pay for assisted living is a major hurdle. By understanding how much each community costs, you can make an informed decision.

Question 9: What is included in the monthly fee?

This is a given, but during the conversation about the cost, get concrete information on what is included in the cost. This way, you have no surprises when it is time to make the first payment.

Question 10: If there is a wait list?

Asking about wait lists is especially important if you need your family member to be relocated immediately. If you have flexible time constraints, this question might not be as vital.

Question 11: How do your current residents interact with each other?

While living in the community, your loved one will have daily interaction with the other residents. By asking this question, you can better gauge the atmosphere of the place. Also, you may learn more about the different programs and amenities available to the residents.

Question 12: Do you have outdoor spaces for the residents to use?

No one likes to be cramped up in a building all day, and sometimes fresh air is just what a person needs. Be sure to ask about secured outdoor spaces that are available to the residents to walk or just sit and read a book.

Question 13: What is the discharge policy?

There are a lot of rumors that suggest assisted living facilities to have a strict discharge policy. Asking this question ahead of time is the best way to keep down confusion and be better informed.

Question 14: If the needs of my loved one change, what options or additional services would be available?

Unfortunately, your loved one’s health can change without expecting it. Therefore, it is important to know how the facility would adapt the care and living situation of your loved one if this happens.

Question 15: What are your billing and payment policies?

The type of payment the facility accepts and the tentative payment dates are also important and should be understood before choosing a community.

What to Look for in an Assisted Living Community

Posted on: May 14th, 2016 by hhmin

Happy elderly couple looking at laptop at retirement home optionsLooking for the ideal assisted living community for you or your loved one is a big decision. No matter where you live, there are more than a handful of communities from which to choose. But, choosing the right one to meet your needs is what counts. To do so, it is imperative that you pay attention to the community’s features and make them a part of your deciding factor.

What Your Retirement Home Needs

If you are on the hunt for the perfect local assisted living community home for yourself or for your parents/family member, here are four things you should pay attention to when selecting a home.

Great Location and Size

Like any place you live, you want the location to be good. Determining whether you want to live closer or further apart to your family should be the first thing you consider. Also, think about if you prefer a local community or one in a popular retirement city like Florida.

At the same time, you want to think about the size of the community in which you would like to reside in. Do you prefer a small community that makes it easier to build personal relationships or a larger one that gives you a bit more independence? All are factors you need to take into consideration.

Fun Activities and Amenities

The great part about living in an assisted living home is being able to socialize with other people in your age group. During your downtime, you want to have the liberty to partake in leisure activities and events. This is why it is important to think about the listed activities and amenities for the retirement home. If you like to knit, ask about those types of activities. If you like swimming, make sure the community has a swimming pool available.

Good Accessibility

Along with the location, pay attention to the accessibility of the community. Is the retirement community hard to navigate through? Would walking to the different amenities you would frequent be easy? Also, look at the amount of ramps available. Are thoroughly located around the retirement home?

Happy Assisted Living Residents and Faculty

The facility’s faculty and residents will play a huge part in the experience you have at your new retirement home. When you tour, look at the how the faculty and the residents interact and communicate. Don’t be afraid to ask the residents for their opinion of the community, too. By getting a good feel of the people that live and work at the home, you will be able to make a more educated decision on which is the best choice for you.
