There may be a general idea of what is needed or wanted but education and a solid understanding of the reality of Retirement Living is essential. A search is best done in collaboration with a Senior Transition Consultant. Experts in the field of Senior Living, they will find the most appropriate Retirement Community for yourself or your loved one without added stress and confusion.
Although it would be ideal to visit every Senior Community the best way to approach a search is to visit with your loved one, discuss their preferences and share them with a Consultant who has insight into the Senior Communities best fitting their circumstances. Choices to match desired amenities and services in a Senior Community are less stressful when using a Senior Transition service. Taxes and home care are left to experts; important life changes should be done with an expert as well.
A Transition Consultant will discuss questions ranging from simple to complex: Is the community accessible to shopping, churches, medical care? Is transportation provided? Is medical staff available and if so, how much of the day? Are the residents happy? These questions and more are important to be sure your loved one feels at home. A Transition Consultant will focus on YOU and will want your placement to be successful.
Exploring a Community
Once the field of Senior Communities has been narrowed your Transition Consultant will contact each community representative to arrange a tour. While on the tour remember your questions are important. Do not hesitate to discuss your concerns and impressions. Remember, finding the right Senior Living Option is about YOU. If you’re partial to certain communities, request an opportunity to make an additional visit, perhaps during lunch or an activity. Your Transition Consultant will facilitate the appointments. They want to be confident you are making the right choice for the right reasons.
