Choosing an Assisted Living Facility


An assisted living facility is designed to meet your personal service needs, housing needs and health care needs. The residence may be part of a retirement community, nursing home, or elderly housing facility, or it may be an independent building on its own campus. Your accommodations may be single room, double rooms, or kitchen-equipped apartments.

Assisted living/residential care services typically include:

Assistance with daily living activities, such as: bathing, dressing, eating, toileting
Help with medications

Choosing an assisted living residence

Visit several assisted living or residential care facilities before making a choice. Each assisted living facility offers its varying services and fees and each has it own unique atmosphere. When visiting the facilities be sure to examine the facility for cleanliness; lighting, adequate handrails, especially in bathrooms, and ways patients can call for help in an emergency. Observe the staff and their interaction with residents. Are they respectful and friendly? And talk to residents. Are the satisfied with the accommodations, care received, and life at the assisted living facility?

Ask these questions when visiting the facilities:

What types of accommodations are offered?

What types of services are available?

Are the services provided by employees or contractors?

How much input do residents have in their daily schedules and care?

What’s included in the rate? What services are extra?

What social and recreational activities exist?

What level of care does the facility provide? Will you have to move if you need more care later on?

What is the facility's licensing status? Ask to see a recent state licensing inspection report.
