Searching for an assisted living community for yourself or a parent can feel like an overwhelming task. We know you want to make the best choice and there are a couple of things you may want to consider before you take such an important step.
First, you will want to research the various options in your preferred area. The Internet is an efficient and easy way to discover what is out there, and you will find several websites that offer a search directory of facilities. Also you can check with your health care provider for any recommendations they may have.
Once you have narrowed down your list to several communities in your target location, give them a call to set up a tour. While on the phone, have a list of questions handy such as are there immediate openings available, and if not, how long is the wait, the price range and what will you see on the tour as well as how much time it will take.
A community tour is your best opportunity to get a real feel for the place. You want your future home to have a caring and warm staff and residents that are friendly. If you are looking for assisted living for a family member that is not very mobile, you can tour a few and narrow down the selections so they only tour the top choices. The Caring.com website has a checklist available for researching and touring a community that you may find helpful.
