Choosing a Companion Agency for Elderly Care
Assisted living facilities focus on providing full or partial assistance with ADLs. Some are staffed with registered nurses. Some are not. You should ask a lot of questions and visit the facilities several times. Check with family members and residents to determine if the staff is caring for residents. You should also observe the interaction between residents and staff. The National Center for Assisted Living recommends visiting facilities several times, and having lunch with the residents.
