How do I know it’s time for Assisted Living

Considering Assisted Living: Checklist

  1. When is it time to start thinking about assisted living? What kind of issues would occur that signal it could be time to move to a community that serves older adults?
  2. What are your needs (or a loved one’s needs)? What types of services would be the best fit?
  3. Are you or a loved one having trouble cooking meals or driving to medical appointments?
  4. Is it easy to socialize—or is that prevented by the inability to drive?
  5. What is the cost of the services at assisted living communities? What is the monthly budget for you or a family member?
