Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing An Assisted Living Facility

When the time comes to begin exploring assisted living facilities in the Wichita area for yourself or a loved one, it‘s not a time you can afford to make a poor or rushed decision.

Communication and education are key.

There are so many things to consider when choosing a Senior Living home, and what’s best for one person may not be for another, so it’s important to take your time, ask many questions and keep a thorough record of pros, cons and key features of each home you visit.

Here are 8 tips on how to choose when choosing an assisted living facility in Wichita:

– Choosing a community that fits your needs, not your loved one’s.

– Assuming large communities are a better value.

– Making a pressured or uniformed decision in “crisis mode“.

– Not considering your loved one‘s wishes.

– Not physically visiting communities. 

– Not paying enough attention to healthcare services provided.

– Waiting too long to begin looking – or to move.

– Taking on the decision making alone.
