No matter the circumstances, choosing an elder care facility can be a difficult, and emotional, decision. With a little guidance, the decision can be made easier.
Level of care needed: Different elder care facilities offer different levels of care, ranging from independent living to skilled nursing care. Be sure to consider the specific needs of the individual, their health, and their abilities when choosing a facility.
Research: Check out the facility's website and online reviews. If possible, speak with current residents and their families to get a better idea of what the facility is like. Check if the facility has a good overall reputation.
Location: Choose a facility that is located close to you, family members, and friends, as this can make visits more convenient and provide a sense of familiarity. If transportation is an issue, consider a facility that provides transportation services.
Amenities: Determine what amenities the facility offers, such as housekeeping, meal plans and social activities. Look for a facility that has amenities that cater to the interests and hobbies of the individual.
Staff: Ask about the staff-to-resident ratio and the qualifications of the staff. Determine if the staff is compassionate, well-trained, and experienced in working with seniors.
Cost: Consider the cost of the facility and whether it fits within the budget. Some facilities may accept Medicare or Medicaid, and some may offer financial assistance.
Visit: Schedule a visit to the facility to see it in person. Observe the cleanliness and safety of the environment and talk to the staff and residents to get a sense of the atmosphere.
Remember to take your time in making this important decision and involve the individual and family in the process as much as possible.
