Assisted Living FAQs

What is assisted living for seniors?

Assisted living for seniors is a community that aims to provide you with the help you need to maintain your independence. With assisted living, you don’t give anything up. You have your own apartment and receive only as much help as you need. You enjoy the companionship of your neighbors and the support of friendly staff, along with the security of knowing that you have 24/7 access to help when you need it.

What does assisted living provide?

Assisted living provides just the right level of help with activities for daily living and instrumental activities for daily living. Whether you need help getting dressed, moving around, cooking, shopping or maintaining your apartment, Ovation Heartwood Preserve ensures that you have what you need to maintain your independence and get the most out of life.

What is the difference between assisted living and nursing homes?

Assisted living is for adults who may need some help with daily living activities but are still able (and prefer) to maintain their independence. An apartment offers you privacy, but you can still go out and enjoy the company of your neighbors or partake in numerous organized activities.

A nursing home, on the other hand, looks and feels more like a hospital. Residents often have shared rooms and limited access to organized activities. There’s more supervision and much less privacy. This particular setting is the better choice for those who require more frequent medical attention and assistance with daily living.

Is a nursing home more expensive than assisted living?

In Omaha, nursing homes cost more than assisted living. The average cost of assisted living is around $4,285 per month, while the average cost of a nursing home is almost $7,000.

If a nursing home adheres to state and local requirements, residents may be able to use Medicare or Medicaid to reduce the out-of-pocket cost. These options can’t be used to cover the cost of assisted living. You can, however, use other options, such as veteran’s benefits or long-term care insurance.
