When it’s time to move your elderly family member into an assisted living community, it is important to weigh out your options. It can be hard deciding when and where your senior should move to. Independence Village is here to help guide you in the process by providing some potential questions to ask yourself when determining which assisted living option is right for your loved one.
How to Choose An Assisted Living Apartment
Always start with research. Begin by looking online at communities around your area and read their reviews. Make sure you find out what services each community offers. Things to consider when picking the right community will include:
- Transportation services
- Medication assistance
- Cooked meals
- What is included and size of apartment, and more.
What to Look For in Assisted Living
What are the assisted living community services, do they offer any extracurricular activities? How does the staff interact with their residents and can I or your family member afford it? These are all important questions to consider when finding the right senior apartment.
Note: When you tour the community, collect any brochures or materials to help you make the process easier on yourself. Remember, you don’t have to make this decision alone.
