Making the move from home to assisted living can be a difficult experience that can raise more questions than it answers. Not only is it difficult for whoever is signing papers and doing research on good facilities, but it signals an enormous change—a change that very few people are comfortable making.
Pennsylvania ranked as "exceptional" in standings that tell how easily information is found about different senior living facilities. This is good news: There is information out there for Pennsylvania residents looking to make an informed decision on nursing homes and assisted living options. However, you still have to know what to look for and what to ask.
Here are a few tips to get you started:
When observing the residences in person, it's important to ask staff members questions to get a better understanding of the lifestyle your loved one can look forward to if you choose that facility.
When considering nursing homes, assisted living information resources can help you learn valuable information that can make the difference between peace of mind for your family and a seemingly endless hassle. Making an informed decision is probably one of the hardest parts of moving a loved one into assisted living.
