The assisted facilities are the ones where you can expect for your loved one to receive the best possible care and support and assistance in the hands of well-trained caregivers. Most facilities consists of a number of apartments or suites to house a number of people under the same roof, all the rooms in such facilities are well-furnished with television sets, refrigerators and each room consists of attached washrooms. On top of that there would be individual caregivers assigned to an individual client who would attend to each and every need and requirement of that particular person. The facilities are highly affordable so going for this option would not burn a hole in your pocket. You should be very much careful about the facility that you would like to go for for senior care. Firstly, just keep in mind to always go for a licensed assisted facility which is of utmost importance such as the award-winning Anthem Senior Retreat in the Phoenix region in Arizona.

Certain factors which you should keep in mind prior to opting for an assisted care facility for your loved ones are:


  • Firstly, like we have mentioned earlier that always opt for a licensed facility and secondly the thing which you should be doing is to go for a recce of the facility which you are thinking about going for or which you have chosen for senior care. Taking a tour of the facility will throw a lot of light on many a things. The moment you drop in at a facility just check for the cleanliness and safety measures. Observe the surroundings which itself will tell you how clean or safe the place is. Are there any emergency evacuation plans in place specially when there are so many elderly people who are residents of the place!


  • Then comes the indoor part which includes taking a tour of the rooms, kitchen, washroom, etc. In the kitchen, just check for the hygiene standards that the cooks maintain while preparing meals. If possible ask the residents already staying at the place about the food served in the place, is it nutritious, is it as per a client’s preference.


  • Moreover because assisted facilities are more on the lines of a community setting, what will happen is your loved one would get the opportunity of socializing with the other people which means you can expect them to be happy at the place. Just make an inquiry about the fact that what are the types of fun-filled activities that are arranged for the elderly members. At Anthem Senior Retreat movie nights are arranged, dance performances are organized where outside performers are called in to perform- all these are done just with the sole aim of keeping the clients in high spirits.


  • Last, but not the least, your loved ones deserves to be treated in the best possible way with total respect and dignity in the hands of caregivers or whoever would be taking care of your parents or grandparents which highlights the importance to check the attitude and behavior of the caregivers. If possible just initiate a conversation with any of the caregivers and assess for yourself about the way he or she behaves and whether or not they are skilled in the important medical procedures to be able to deal with any medical emergency.
