If you’re planning ahead and thinking about your health as you age, Tina Hall from Era Living joins Suzanne to talk about key questions someone should ask a senior living community.
If you can, see their most recent state survey. You want to know the care is good, they’re not making mistakes, they’re doing things right. What’s their turnover rate? Longevity means a better relationship with their residents. Ask about the food, how are menus designs, you want to try a meal or two. Ask about the activities. Ask about cost, do they accept Medicaid if you run out of money, just in case. What care options do they have, assisted living, what if they need additional care? What are their move-out triggers, if they can’t provide care any more? Do they have memory care? Do they have flexible licensing, what if your spouse needs care too? Also, how involved can your family members be? Can they be involved in care conferences, for meals, for activities? We’re social animals, and having engagement with family and people we care about are vital for health. Listen to hear more great questions to ask.
