As you or your loved one ages, there may come a time when additional help is needed. A thoughtful plan can turn this seemingly stressful time into an exciting next step.

Do you know how to find a community where you or your loved one will feel comfortable, welcome, and engaged?

The key is considering what kind of services, care, or housing will meet your needs, preferences, and goals. By conversing about what everyone involved wants, you can create a checklist of desired services and amenities as a guide when considering your options. There are many factors to consider, but we have boiled it down to get you started.

SIX TIPS FOR FINDING THE RIGHT CARE:

  • Assess your needs to determine what type of support you need or want, narrowing your list of potential communities.
  • Learn about the different types of senior Care and Services, from assisted living to skilled nursing or memory care, because each provides a different level of care.
