Preparing to research senior living options?

Even if you have researched senior living options for a family member or loved one, it's not until you've consulted with a team member that you'll truly understand if the community is the right fit. Preparing a list of questions ahead of time can help ensure you get the answers you need to make an informed decision. Think about the questions you have around care, as well as the amenities, programming, and activities your loved one values most. For example, if an engaging social life is important, you'll want to ask about opportunities for connecting with others, such as clubs, classes, events, and comfortable common areas. It's a good idea to start by creating key categories for your list, such as Care, Residences, Staffing, Meals, Amenities, Programming, and others. Then list your related questions under each category. Under Care, you might ask: "Is staff on site 24/7?" and "Does each resident have a written plan of care?" While new questions will likely arise during a consultation, it's helpful to be prepared. At The Watermark at Coral Gables, our specialists are available to answer all your questions, so you can make the decision that is best for your specific situation.
