Senior Living  

    Increasingly, senior assisted living and retirement
communities are meeting the needs of a broader range
of seniors, including active seniors. If you are
researching and considering senior assisted living and
retirement communities, consider the following tips:

Start a notebook, which you will use to compile notes
and other information about the assisted living and
retirement communities you consider.
In the notebook, list the qualities you want (or if you are
assisting an elder, ask them about their wishes and
preferences).
Ask friends, relatives, and colleagues to recommend
assisted living and retirement communities for you to
consider.
Contact the facilities, arrange for tours, and request
references.
Check into the background of each facility. The Better
Business Bureau may be able to help, and they may
also be able to put you in touch with the agency in your
state that oversees assisted living and retirement
communities.
Finally, tour each facility and note amenities and
conditions. Ask to speak with a few of the residents
about their experiences there.
