What is the background of your ownership?
All too often, senior living communities are created for the goal of generating a profit rather than providing genuine, quality care to their residents. The ideal solution will be owned and managed by individuals with backgrounds in the medical and senior living fields because those are the people who understand the importance of quality care and know how to offer it.
What kinds of medical equipment do you have?
Medical equipment and technology are critical in helping maintain the safety and happiness of residents. Ask if there are alarms on doors, beds or chairs that can instantly alert staff to resident needs. Are these call buttons silent to all except the aides to prevent waking up other residents? Are there safety precautions like shower chairs and handrails to prevent falls? What happens if my loved one needs a higher level of care?
