So you’ve made the decision to move to a senior living community. Now, where to start?
While information and advice from family and friends is always important to keep in mind, your unique needs and preferences could be quite different from theirs. For example, a community may have a very good reputation and also be beautiful, well maintained, and in a geographically desirable location. But your mother has Alzheimer's dementia and needs a soothing environment, a high level of specialized care, and a secured facility with measures in place to keep her safe because she has a tendency to wander around at night. Or maybe Dad would prefer a smaller residential environment that feels more familiar. There are many variables to consider. Chesapeake Senior Living Advisor understands that you have unique needs and this is an important decision that cannot be treated as one size fits all.
