There are so many different types of senior living communities that the task of choosing the right one can seem overwhelming in the beginning. Keep in mind that, just as neighborhoods and people have their own unique, individual personalities, so, too, does each senior living community.
To help you wade through the confusing waters that come with choosing the right community, use this checklist as a guide:
It’s important to understand the culture of prospective communities. If you’re an active senior, whether it’s in the social or athletic setting, make sure you discover the activity possibilities that suit your interests at each potential location.
Access to Medical Care
Accidents and medical misfortunes do happen, but you'll feel much more at ease if you have access to a skilled nursing team near your home.
If you end up with a medical concern, appropriate health care is often only part of the journey toward feeling better. Having easy access to a rehabilitation space can help expedite the healing process.
A full-service senior living community will work to provide the most comfort to its residents in all circumstances. Research in-home care options so you know you'll be in good hands, should you need more assistance in the future.
It's important to settle into a community that suits your desires. If you're not a cold weather person, you should try to find a senior living community located in a more moderate or sunny climate.
Where will you bank? Are there fitness facilities on campus? What kind of options exist for relaxation and socialization? The more amenities your senior living community has on campus, the more fulfilled you'll likely be in the long run.
Find a community that offers a variety of dining options, including a mix of formal and informal. Be sure to try the food when you visit- Sarasota Bay Club has an informational luncheon so you'll get to experience the food as well as the community!
Learn about all of the purchasing options of each community upfront to ensure that you find a place with a good fit when it comes to both buying and selling your property.
Where will people stay when they visit you? Are there housing options nearby?
Avoid having too much or too little space by finding a community that offers enough variety to find that "just right".
