Touring Assisted Living Facilities in Florida

It is very important for you to use your own judgement when you tour Florida assisted living facilities. You are the best person to determin if your own needs and preferences and/or those of your loved one can be met at the ALF. Since you will have many things to do during your visit, you might want to make notes of your question and concerns. Some of the items you'll want to check out during your visit may include:

1) The condition of the building and grounds
2) Take the opportunity to talk to some facility residents
3) Talk to the facility administrator who is in charge of daily operations
4) Talk to a few of the facility staff members
5) Ask to see a copy of the Admission Agreement
6) Ask to see the facility license and verify that it is current
7) Ask about medication procedures and policies
9) Ask about the facility training program for staff

It's a good idea to learn as much as possible about all the assisted living options that are available in your area. They could be called Residential Living Facilities, Adult Foster Homes, or Home Care Centers in your location. Everything you read and each facility you visit will help you to get closer to determining your own need. There are adult family homes, retirement communities, board and care homes, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities and other options. Learning about the costs of assisted living and how to cover those costs is also very important. With all these options, and maybe because there are so many choices, it can be overwhelming. There's nothing wrong with getting help.

A few of the services offered by assisted living placement services are:
1) Help Determine if Assisted Living is Right for You
2) Determining the level of care needed
3) Locating the home or facility best suited to your needs
4) Helping you to negotiate the lowest possible price for you and your family
5) Helping you with finanacial planning so that your resources can be used wisely to cover the costs involved
6) Ensuring that the facility you choose is able to handle any special needs that you may have.

There are placement agencies that will be pleased to help you sort through the maze and make the best choice for your loved one. This is their field of expertise and they are happy to share the knowledge they've gathered with you. A few of our favorites are A Place For Mom, Elderlink, and Assisted Living. In Southern California and Southern Arizona, one of our favorites is Assisted Living Placements. Most referral agencies (sometimes called placement agencies) will provide their services free of charge.
