3 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Senior Community for Your Loved One, Heath, Ohio

Here are three factors to consider when choosing a senior community:senior community

  • Quality Of Staff: The staff makes a huge difference in top-notch senior communities. They should be attentive, friendly, and trained in specific areas, such as dementia care. There should also be a low residents-to-staff ratio. Speak with the management team at the elderly home to ask about staff training and requirements, so you can feel confident in their care.
  • Cleanliness Of Residences: Let your nose guide you while touring senior communities. Pungent odors throughout the facilities could indicate neglect. You should inquire about the frequency of housekeeping and laundry services. 
  • Food & Amenities: Your loved one will be eating the food at the senior community for nearly every meal. Try a meal yourself to make sure there’s a variety of flavors, plenty of nutrients, and an effort to make everything tasty. You should also look for assisted living that boasts a full calendar of activities and events to keep your relative happy and busy during their stay.
