Tips for Choosing the Best Assisted Living

assisted living
With over half a million assisted living providers nationwide, choosing the right one can be overwhelming. Keep these tips in mind when selecting an assisted living:

1. Location: Assisted living should be close to friends and family, so that they can frequently visit and check in on their loved one.

2. Level of care: Verify the assisted living provides the level of care needed for the resident. Also keep in mind that costs and fees for an assisted living are often based on the level of care required.

3. Recommendations: Word of mouth recommendations can tell us whether we can get along with providers on a personal level. Ask friends, family, and other associates if they have had experiences with the assisted livings on your list.

4. Reviews: Research online reviews-they are a valuable resource. They can give you a better picture of whether patients received quality care at the assisted living.

5. Amenities: Those little things that make you more comfortable can make a big difference. Inquire what amenities the assisted living provides (Pet ownership, transportation, activities, etc).
