Finally, considering your family and senior profile, your wants and needs, as well as, known licensing of individual facilities and residential homes, your advisor/consultant can provide a review of realistic options and make recommendations.
You may be presented with a number of options that cover a wide range of services and styles. In some cases, you will be directed to a residence that can provide "continuity of care" that allows seniors with evolving needs to "age in place" at a broad spectrum facility. Your advisor will answer questions and may assist with arrangements for on-site tours.
In any case, the tour will be one of your most meaningful steps in the process. It is important to listen in detail and to ask more questions to get a firm understanding of the capabilities and features that are being offered. Don’t hesitate to ask you advisor to clarify items that are unclear.
Ask. Ask. Ask.
