How do you Pick an Assisted Living Facility?

Choosing an assisted living facility is a major decision that one must weigh heavily. Many seniorcare experts recommend visiting at least 3 assisted living communities to get a feel for the environment that you may be living in. Keep in mind that while you are touring the facilities, the on-site managers may only show you the things they want you to see. Some people suggest talking to some of the residents that live in the assisted living community without the presence of any on-site staff to get a more open dialogue exchange.

Remember to consider factors such as cost, wheelchair friendly facility, social activities and gatherings, actual number of hours of care per week among other points when considering the right facility to stay in.
