5 Questions to Ask an Assisted Living Facility, Winter Park, Florida

The decision to choose an assisted living facility for your loved one is not easy. Visiting Angels in Winter Park, FL, provides elder care services and understands how important it is to prepare for your loved one’s transition to a senior care facility. The key is to stay focused on the goal of finding an appropriate facility that truly meets the needs of your loved one.

Begin by asking the questions that will help you make this important decision:

Is There A Nurse Available All Day?

Some assisted living facilities have nurses on the premises 24 hours a day, while others have nurses on call who visit in an emergency situation or perform regular checkups. For elders who have ongoing health concerns, this is an important point to consider.

Can Family Members Stay Overnight?

Occasionally, family members may wish to keep their loved ones company to provide comfort. Enquire about whether the facility can accommodate an extra person in the room.

What Is The Ratio Of Residents To Caregivers?

You want your loved one to receive the best care possible, and it’s important that the individual’s caregiver be in a position to provide one-on-one attention.

Can You Help Manage My Loved One’s Condition?

Your loved one may be dealing with a condition that requires specific, focused care and a treatment plan. This will help ensure that your loved one is in the right hands.

What Types Of Activities Are Available?

Residents in assisted living facilities benefit from activities that keep them engaged, be it watching television with other residents, playing board games, or spending time outdoors in the company of a caregiver. These types of activities could benefit your loved one.

Asking the right questions can make it a little easier to choose the right facility for a person you love. It’s not a decision made lightly, and Visiting Angels recognizes that you only want the best for your loved one.
