What to Look For in Senior Housing

Care Services

Assess all of the care needs of your love one. If the person needs special care for Alzheimer's disease, has a tendency to fall, needs help with daily living (bathing, toileting), or has other disabilities, you should make certain that the facility is equipped to handle those conditions.

Location

Look for housing that will be convenient for family and friends to visit. You will most likely want to be able to drop in and see that your loved one is happy and properly cared for.

Amenities

Think about the things that would make the potential resident feel "at home." Privacy, access to a phone, a TV in the room, a pleasant courtyard or garden, outings, and other amenities all add up to a higher quality of life.

Cost

What resources do you have available to pay for senior housing? A financial planner or estate attorney can help you understand your options.
