Narrowing Down the Options
You want the best for your loved one — the best staff, the best environment and the best features. And there are certain things you’re looking for in a senior living community that you’re never going to be willing to sacrifice. But you also don’t want to pay an arm and a leg. We know how you feel, because we have been helping people just like you find the perfect community for their loved ones for almost 40 years.
As you begin comparing communities, take time to weigh which factors are most important to you. For example, does your loved one need to live in a location close to you or another family member? Does your loved one have any special requests or desires, like wanting to bring their pet? Each community has its own list of perks or amenities — you just want to make sure they match up with your needs.
There’s also no substitute for seeing one of our communities in person. It’s often impossible to feel comfortable choosing a place you only see in a brochure or online. But we think that once you meet our staff, feel the home-like atmosphere at each location, and see our resident’s quality of life, you’ll start to feel at ease about how well our communities work for your loved one.
