When it’s time to make a change in your older adult’s living situation, choosing from the available senior housing options might feel overwhelming.

One way to ease the stress of selecting a new senior living community for your family member is to think about the “what’s next” possibilities in choosing a retirement residence or independent living facility for each senior and make a list of 3-5 questions that you’d like answered when you visit a care giving facility for your loved one: The answers will help you feel more confident about the decisions you make as a family caregiver regarding senior care for your loved ones!

Senior living communities come at a range of different price points, from affordable to very expensive for luxury communities. With so many variables between these types of communities and their ability to meet your needs (and your budget) one of the biggest mistakes people make when transitioning into or out of a senior community is choosing based on their bank account and not their need. Avoid the mistake of not figuring out where you truly stand financially before you move and find yourself in a position where you are not happy about the community you chose.

Another important aspect is that while you can find great information about senior living communities online, there’s no substitute for touring.

Visiting a senior care community is the best way to gather first-hand information about the lifestyle options available and the quality care you can expect to receive there. Keep in mind that not all facilities accept every resident or permit admission inquiries on a walk-in basis; some require appointments and/or applications to be completed prior to visiting the community in order to arrange a tour. We suggest scheduling a tour at the Carlton Senior Living luxury memory care to see if this facility is the right one for your loved ones.
