Touring a retirement community can be an overwhelming task. At Country Meadows Village, let us help you take the guesswork out and give you some helpful guidelines for a successful tour.

  • Talk to the caregivers: What is the ratio of residents to caregivers? Watch how the caregivers interact with the residents: do they seem happy and caring? Your care is dependent on the people that run the community. Make sure they are friendly and sympathetic to your needs.
  • Talk to a resident: The best way to understand the community and what it provides is to talk to the people that live there. Residents will give you the real scoop about the place.
  • Visit during a social activity: What activities does the community have to offer? Are the residents enjoying themselves? Most retirement communities have numerous daily activities such as exercise, games, movies, and art.
  • Taste the food: Spend time in the dining room and try a meal. If you have dietary needs, find out how accommodating the chefs will be. Also, look at the menu options and chat with the residents about mealtimes, protocols and satisfaction.
  • Understand fees: Learn about costs, extras, payments and agreements. Ask about monthly fees and what services cost extra. Having a clear understanding of all the costs will help prevent possible future misperceptions.
  • Trust your instincts: You've had years to appreciate your likes and dislikes. Does this look like a place you will enjoy? Do people look happy here?
  • Call Country Meadows Village today to schedule a tour, we will show you our home and make you feel welcome.
