Just as MorningStar at Arrowhead encourages anyone interested in our community to schedule a tour, so do most other assisted living communities. This is because you cannot really get an idea of what a community looks like or feels like without seeing it in person.
In addition to wanting your loved one to be happy in their new “home,” your priorities most likely include finding a community that is well run, clean, and within your price range. Experts recommend your first step should be to do some research over the Internet and on the phone. Narrowing down your choices includes considering things such as how convenient will it be for the family to visit and is it located close to a pharmacy, medical facilities and shopping. Furthermore, find out if the community is accepting new residents, and if not, you may want to go on their waiting list.
Senior support network Caring.com has a great checklist (it is even printable) of tips to consider for when touring an assisted living community. To start with, they say you should always listen to your gut instincts. From the moment you walk through the door, do you get a good feeling? Regardless of how beautifully decorated, does it feel welcoming and have a home-like atmosphere? If they offer the service, eat lunch with the residents as it will help to give you a more complete picture of the community.
