What To Consider When Touring And Choosing Your Retirement Community
Once you’ve decided you want to move to a retirement community, how do you find the one that is right for you? Every retirement community is unique in the benefits, activities, and culture they offer to their residents. You may know that you’re interested in downsizing and moving, but you’re not sure what you should look for. Making the move to a retirement community is a major life milestone. And it’s not one that you should take lightly. We’re here to help by providing you with a guide to touring and choosing the retirement community right for you.
Prepare Your Questions In Advance
The first thing you should do before touring any retirement community is prepare a list of questions you want to ask during your tour. These questions can range from the daily operations of the community to the cost of the community and everything in between. Your questions should be focused around the things that matter most to you in the community you choose. You may even want to have a separate set of questions for different people within the community. For example, you will probably want to ask your tour guide or sales consultant questions about the operations, safety and security, and fees of the community; while you may want to ask residents you encounter on your tour questions about the activities and lifestyle the community offers.
Understand The Healthcare Options The Community Provides
Even if you don’t have serious health concerns it is important to know the healthcare options and access to care you will have available to you. You will likely live in the retirement community you choose for the rest of your life. So you want to make sure the community has convenient access to quality care options you may need later on. You should ask about what levels of healthcare services are available on-site. You should also consider how far away the community is from the local hospital and emergency room. Mease Manor offers multiple senior living options – from independent living to our state of the art memory care facility. You will always have access to the highest quality continuum of care in our community.
Get A Clear Understanding Of The Lifestyle The Community Will Provide You
The lifestyle advantages and daily activities and events are likely the main reason you are considering moving to a retirement community. During your tour make sure you get a clear understanding of the amenities, events, activities, and social opportunities the community provides. Here are a few questions to help you get a clear picture of the social lifestyle the community will provide:
- What activities are available?
- How often are activities and events held?
- Who organizes these activities and events?
- Are all activities on-site or are there outing as well?
- Is transportation to and from the community available?
- Are there any resident social clubs?
Your tour should leave you with the confidence that the community will give you the retirement lifestyle you want!
