What’s the dining experience like?
Food is not only a necessity for survival, but it is also a social experience that is very important for people of all ages. When you’re touring a potential place for your loved one, be sure to stop by the dining room for lunch. Are there people sitting together and eating? What’s on the menu? How does the food taste? According to Senior Housing News, “This next segment of residents moving in is looking for… (a) theme where every meal is an experience.” With that in mind, the experience you have eating a meal at the location should rank very highly in your list of criteria when looking into care for your loved one. Ask to eat a meal with some of the seniors and see how the experience is.
Are the rooms nice?
You’re not dropping a college freshman off at school. As such, you should expect much more than a dorm room. Be sure to ask the individual providing the tour to show you to the model bedroom. This is a big change for your loved one and you should look for a room that feels as homey as possible.
