Brookfield Senior Living in Fort Smith is a Level I Assisted Living Facility
In Arkansas, a Level I Assisted Living facility must provide the following for all residents:
- 24-hour supervision by awake staff members
- 24-hour assistance in obtaining emergency healthcare
- Assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs): Dressing, feeding, personal hygiene, ambulating, continence, and toileting
- Laundry services
- Assistance with recreation and social activities
- Transportation assistance
- Assistance with medication
Level I ALFs are not allowed to permit residents who require a nursing home level of care or who need continuous visual monitoring.
Residents in Level I facilities must be generally independent, able to administer their own medications and able to ambulate (move around) on their own.
All residents seeking placement in an assisted living community must undergo a health needs assessment performed by a registered nurse. This assessment will indicate the level of daily care a potential resident requires and can determine whether or not a Level I facility can meet those needs.
If your loved one is basically independent, but requires some assistance with housework, meals, laundry and transportation, life in a Level I senior living community may be the perfect fit.
