What should you look for when it comes to finding quality senior citizen housing? 

  • The Staff: Naturally, it’s important that you and/or the senior in your life, develop a trusting relationship with the experts at the nursing home in question. Make sure you can actually develop a decent rapport with them and keep an eye on their interactions with those under their care. It’s a positive sign if the residents there feel good about the professionals that work in the senior home.
  • The Residents: These people will be able to reflect the realities of the assisted living facility, so you’re in better shape if they seem happy or are engaged. Try to ascertain if they seem to like each other as well, and make sure there are some activities available for them to take part in. Rely on your own judgement or that of the senior in your life and figure out if these residents are a good fit.
  • The Facility: You want to ensure that the facilities themselves are clean and fresh. Find out how often rooms are cleaned, how safe the facilities are from intrusion or invasion, and what the food is like.

Other factors, such as financing and the type of care available may also play a part in your decision making, but certainly, if you’re in the Heath, OH, area, consider The Chapel Grove Inn.
