What Should I Look for When Choosing an Assisted Living Community?

Finding the best assisted living community can take some time, but when reviewing your choices, it is important to compare factors such as staff friendliness, amenities, and the overall culture of the community. Below are some helpful tips to look for when visiting an assisted living community:

  • Get to know the caregivers and staff who provide daily support to community members. Staff should be compassionate, friendly, and patient with members of the community.
  • Get a feel for the community’s culture, programming, and amenities. When choosing an assisted living community, it is important to keep in mind your hobbies and interests. Another element of a community is the people and the culture. Community residents will become your friends, so it is important to get to know them while visiting. Try to take a tour during a group activity that interests you to observe interactions among the residents.
  • Consider accommodations and comfort. Is your loved one someone who prefers company and would like a roommate? Or someone who prefers privacy and their own space? Are you or your loved one looking for a community that is pet friendly? Communities offer a variety of floor plans, rooming options, and pet accommodations, so make sure to come prepared with questions to ask while taking your tour.
  • Ensure the community will meet both short-term and long-term care needs. Choosing the right assisted living facility means selecting a community that can meet you or your loved one’s needs as they evolve. Verify that the staff has experience managing any health needs you may have and ask how often staff members reevaluate care plans.
