When searching for an assisted living facility, you should take a look at the facility’s reputation and the kind of residents it attracts. You should find a facility where the residents all appear to be at similar functional levels. It should also be equipped with non-skid floors, cupboards and carpets. And, it should have a call button, so if you need help, you can call the care team.
Companionship is another great benefit of an assisted living facility. Companions work closely with clients to provide companionship and non-medical assistance. They can help your elderly relative prepare meals, go shopping, and run errands. Companions also help you take your loved one to doctor’s appointments.
