When You're Looking
With all the senior living options available today, it can be
challenging to decide which one is right for you.
Some of the advice we have for you is simply practical. Try to find out as much as you can about today's senior living choices before you tour. Then, ask as many questions as you wish. A good example might be, "How will your community enhance my lifestyle?" or, "Does your community include quality health care in its service fees?" To ensure your financial security, be sure to ask whether any of your initial investment in the community will be returned. Some senior living communities may ultimately return none of your one‑time entrance fee.
One of the most important questions you may want to ask is simply, "How do I know this community is right for me?" Most seniors would prefer to stay near family, favorite neighborhoods, restaurants, medical services and shops.
- Easy access to major thoroughfares is a great advantage when
running errands or visiting local attractions.
- Make sure the community
you're visiting provides transportation for times when you'd
rather not drive.
- At a minimum, a reputable senior
living community should have a caring and dedicated staff that provides dining
choices, weekly housekeeping, maintenance services, 24-hour security,
scheduled transportation, and a range of engaging activities and
- Amenities should promote wellness with an emphasis on
staying physically and mentally fit.
- A wellness center, business
center, salon, library, auditorium and a choice of dining venues
are fundamental — and an indoor
pool is always a plus!
