Felton Manor and its affiliate community Star Manor remain Cartersville's first choice in assisted living. If you're considering long-term care for yourself or your parents, don't wait too long to start the discussion. If you wait until an illness or accident preempts the need for assisted living care, you might find yourself under pressure to make a hasty decision.
.The Assisted Living Federation of America defines assisted living as a senior living option that combines housing, support services and health care, as needed. Assisted living is designed for individuals who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management or assistance, bathing, dressing and transportation. Some residents may have memory disorders including Alzheimer's, or they may need help with mobility, incontinence or other challenges. Residents are assessed upon move in, or any time there is a change in condition. The assessment is used to develop a personalized care plan.
