There are numerous communities. These tips, which Chris Strickland explains in his video from Belmont Village says will allow you to choose among communities.
Chris suggests going to 2 or three facilities. Engage with staff as well as residents when you’re there. This will give you greater insight into the true character of the facility.
Pay attention to the personnel and residents. Are they pleased? What are the residents doing? Are there any activities they could accomplish, or just stay in the halls? Are the meals good? Is the menu varied? Are residents happy with the food?
In addition, the video includes number of residents who admit that it is difficult to determine what to do. But, unplanned visits provide an excellent opportunity to see how your loved ones are being cared by their caregivers. It is also suggested to choose between the senior living facilities that provide the option of independent living. This can lead to the transition into assisted living services at the point when it is needed.
For senior living, trust your gut instincts. This is the best choice for your loved ones if it is comfortable and gives them a sense of belonging.
