It is important to evaluate your loved one’s daily needs and abilities, including activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and mobility. If your loved one needs assistance with these tasks and is having difficulty living independently, it may be time to consider assisted living.
It is important to research and visit multiple assisted living facilities before making a decision. Consider factors such as the location, amenities, staff-to-resident ratio, and quality of care provided. You can also read online reviews and talk to other families who have placed their loved ones in assisted living facilities.
Assisted living facilities are designed to provide a safe and secure environment for residents. Most facilities have security measures in place, such as 24-hour staff, security cameras, and secure entrances and exits. You can also ask about the facility’s emergency preparedness plan and procedures for handling medical emergencies.
Many assisted living facilities offer social and recreational activities to help residents stay engaged and connected. You can ask about the facility’s activity calendar and whether residents are encouraged to participate. It’s also important to visit the facility during different times of day to observe how residents interact with each other and staff.
The cost of assisted living varies depending on the location, level of care required, and amenities offered. It’s important to ask about all fees and expenses upfront, including monthly rent, additional fees for services or amenities, and any potential rate increases in the future.
Our large directory of partner communities includes a wide range of pricing options. All seniors, regardless of income, deserve a clean, safe and caring living environment.
No. The communities benefit from working with us. They view us as part of their marketing department because we bring them qualified and appropriate residents.
If you or your loved one moves into one of our recommended communities, we receive a referral fee from the facility, never from you.
More and more communities are now accepting residents with pets, oftentimes a pet fee will be required upon move-in. Some assisted living communities will only allow cats, while others will allow cats and dogs (usually with a weight limit.) In most communities, residents must be able to provide complete care for their pets.
It’s important to involve your loved one in the decision-making process as much as possible. Explain the reasons for the move and address any concerns or fears they may have. Help them pack and move their belongings, and consider visiting the facility together before the move to help ease the transition.
