TO LOOK FOR IN AN ASSISTED LIVING HOME

Here are some things to look for in an assisted living home:

Is it certified by the state it is in? If not posted front and center, ask to see it.

Don't EVER let the person ready to sign you aboard intimidate or rush you. In fact, make them wait. THEY should call YOU back. YOU ARE THE CUSTOMER---PERIOD.

Read all their home rules. ASK QUESTIONS.

Look for a manager who ENCOURAGES you to ask questions.

SMELL the place, top floor to bottom. Is it clean? Are there cobwebs?

Look for lights out, unpainted wall scrapes, worn carpet.

Eat a meal or three there. Is the menu clean? Variety of choices? Healthy options?

Watch the dining room staff---are they in clean uniforms? Talk to them.

Find out how long the current manager has been there.

Talk to residents: Do they seem happy? Aware? Fit?

This is your starter list.
