6 Questions to Ask When Choosing Senior Housing

Senior Housing Plymouth

Moving your loved one to senior housing in Plymouth is a big decision, but one that can provide you and your elderly parent with the peace of mind that they have a loving community to watch over them as they require more medical care, or a community of like-minded friends to keep them company while you’re working. How can you find the right place to call home for your elderly parent’s next stage of life? 

As you interview senior housing options, we encourage you to ask the following questions to make sure you know your options:

  • Do you have licensed nurses on staff 24/7? In-home medical care?
  • What kinds of on-site amenities do you offer?
  • What are the costs of living in your facility? Does it vary by level of care?
  • Can my elderly parent age in place and receive flexible care?
  • How much independence is available for a resident that doesn’t need a high level of care?
  • What kinds of activities are available? What is the community like? 

You’ll want to tour the facilities you’re considering for your elderly parent with them, if possible, so you both get a sense of whether it’s a good fit. Your elderly parent might surprise you with their feelings both positive or negative about what’s going to work for them in the next stage of their life. Keep the lines of communication open, and remember not to feel guilty that you can’t do it all yourself. You’re doing your best, and there’s support for your family.

We wish you all the best in making the important decision of which senior housing facility to trust with your loved one’s care. You can learn more about Plymouth Terrace’s flexible senior living amenities and senior daily activities.
