Before moving a loved one into an assisted living facility, you should consider several factors. Assisted living facilities tend to focus on quality of life and will encourage residents to maintain social and spiritual interests. They also tend to prioritize security, so they may have alarm systems or security guards. Assisted living facilities may also offer assistance with daily living activities, including helping residents find appropriate activities. The National Center for Assisted Living recommends visiting facilities at least twice before deciding which one to move your loved one into.
