How to Choose an Assisted Living Facility
Choosing an assisted living community is one of the most important decisions you will make. With no shortage of options, you'll need to ensure that you are asking the right questions and prioritizing your needs throughout the entire process. Here are some of our top tips:
Go on a tour Going on a tour of the community gives you an idea of their amenities and atmosphere while letting you see or interact with staff and residents. Be sure to pay close attention to the dinning schedule, meals offered, safety features, and resident programs.
Be honest with yourself Being honest with yourself about the level of care you may need is critical. Without a clear understanding of the type of care you need, the staff will be unable to assess if their community is a good fit.
Compare amenities and programs Is staying active important to you? How about meeting new people and being social? You'll want to make sure the community you choose offers all the amenities and programs you need to stay healthy and engaged.
Ask questions Just as we suggest creating a list of your care needs before your tour, we also suggest creating a list of questions. Questions related to staff certifications and training, security, transportation, and additional fees/services are all helpful.
