Jennifer Cavallaro, President of One Macdonough Place in Middletown, CT shares her tips on how to make the process a little less stressful.
According to a piece from Connecticut's News 8, you must first do your research so you can be an informed decision maker. Tour several communities, and ask questions. Second, remember that not all assisted livings are created equal, particularly in terms of what is included in their monthly fee.
- Learn how each community cares for its residents.What services are available, who provides them and is someone available to help around the clock—or just during business hours? Does the community have its own nursing staff or do other agencies provide those services?
- Pay attention to the activities offered. As you look at the offerings available, think about whether you, or your loved one, would participate in these activities.
