Choosing The Right Community

Choosing The Right Community

Now that you’ve decided that you, your family, and your senior loved one require an assisted living community to help provide the quality of care and assistance they deserve, you may find that the actual choosing of the right community can be a daunting task, especially for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Let’s say you have done your homework, and even enlisted the help of a care manager or a referral agency. You have made a list of what is important to you and your loved one; and you have narrowed your search to a few communities. You are now ready to take a tour. Here are several questions you need to ask:

  • What if My Parent(s) Are Concerned About Losing Connection With Our Family?
  • How Good is the Quality of Medical Care for Memory Care Residents?
  • How engaged are the staff with the residents?
  • How Good/Pleasant is the Food/Dining Experience?
  • How Safe and Secure are the Community Buildings and the Grounds?
  • We'll answer these questions and more with our upcoming blogs.
