3 Questions You Should Ask Before Joining a Retirement Community, West Plains, Missouri

Joining a retirement community is a significant transition that requires careful consideration. So how can you determine whether a particular community will facilitate the lifestyle you desire and meet your needs throughout your golden years? Asking the right questions is the key to making a decision you’ll be satisfied with.

3 Questions to Ask a Retirement Community

1. How Is Health Care Managed?

As you age, access to quality medical care is a must. When you check out a retirement community, health care provisions should be one of the leading factors that guide your decision. Consider aspects like the ratio of nurses to residents, staff credentials, and physical health programs offered by the community.

2. Who Takes Care of Maintenance?

When considering the move, make sure maintenance and housekeeping expenses are covered by your monthly resident fees—and that the maintenance staff will respond quickly to any issues that might arise. Many programs even offer meal delivery!

3. Are There Additional Amenities?

Just because you’re moving to a retirement community doesn’t mean you have to slow down. The best communities offer a wide range of activities to promote an engaging, dynamic lifestyle. Libraries, exercise groups, and movie nights are just a few activities that can make a retirement community feel like home.
