Choosing The Right Assisted Living Community
Finding the right care for your loved one can be a challenging and at times overwhelming. There are a variety of care communities that range in pricing, location, amenities, and services. Make a list of amenities or services that are important to your senior. Here are a few things to consider when researching different care communities.
Caregiver to resident ratio. Larger communities may have a lower ratio while smaller communities may have a higher ratio based on their occupancy. If your loved one wants or needs more interaction or engagement, consider a smaller "home-like" community. Ask about overnight staffing as well.
Safety and security are important. Your loved one needs to feel safe and at peace in their community. Some residents, specifically memory care, need secure facilities to keep their loved one safe. Find the right fit for your senior.
Review the menu! Are the meals tasty and appealing? Can the staff cater to any dietary restrictions or offer an alternative option for meals?
Daily activities and social opportunities can have a significant impact on a resident's experience. Ask to speak with the activity director to get more information on how they engage their residents.
