What Should I Look For In An Assisted Living Facility?

Posted on Aug 24, 2012

Most people don’t have a lot of experience finding a quality assisted living facility. If you’re new to this process than let us give you a few pieces of advice:


Few things are free in life, but assisted living placement advice is. Contact Julie at Accessible Elder Care at (707) 237-2750 to get free assisted living advice and referrals to great assisted living facilities in Sonoma County. She has assessed a lot of assisted living facilities and can save you time and effort by assessing your elder care needs and referring you to a screened assisted living facility. Her advice and referrals are free to you because she’s paid a referral fee by the assisted living facility that you (the family member or senior) select. Since her service is free to you, why not get some free advice?


A Santa Rosa assisted living facility should be clean. If you walk into an assisted living facility and smell urine or other foul odors, beware. An assisted living facility shouldn’t be a dirty place. It should smell clean.


Who are the caregivers? What training do the caregivers receive. Is there awake-night staff? These are some of the questions that you should ask. Most seniors require assistance in the night so there should be 24-hour staffing with qualified caregivers.
