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?
