Things You Should Consider When Touring an Assisted Living Facility

We understand that it’s hard to separate your loved one from the environment that he or she has always known. That’s why it’s important to find the right senior assisted living facility for your loved one—somewhere he or she can fit in and be proud to call home.

When touring a senior home, you’ll probably have numerous questions to ask, or you may not know what to ask at all. In either case, we’ve compiled a list of things you should take into consideration while touring.

Staff

Medical Assistance

As loved ones get older, they require more and more medical assistance to help get them through the tough days. The senior living facility your family will soon become a part of should provide sound medical care, such as medicine, experienced doctors, and hospital visits as needed. Make sure there is a nurse or doctor on call at all hours, and that the staff can correctly administer medication. Also, ask if the medical staff has any experience in treating the diagnosis of your family member. For example, as a leading dementia senior care facility in Salt Lake County, we wouldn’t hire anyone but experienced professionals with the highest credentials to care for our residents.

Housing

You want to make sure your loved one will be comfortable in his or her new home. Crescent Senior Living offers a variety of living spaces to choose from, such as companion, studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and Memory Care suites. Every unit is designed to feel homey and comfortable so that your loved one can enjoy his or her stay here to the fullest.

Community

An assisted living center is not just a house with a nurse. It’s a community. Here at Crescent Senior Living, we pride ourselves on building and maintaining a caring community that makes every new resident feel welcome. When touring a senior home, speak with other residents to see how they like their home. Nobody can tell you more about a senior home than those who live there. Are there interesting and enriching activities available? Do they match your family member’s interests? Every place you visit should have special projects, fun events, and exciting trips to engage the community and bring them closer together.

Now you should have a better idea of what to look for when you’re touring a senior assisted living facility. Each facility is unique, just like your family member!
