Ask what education, training and experience the assisted living facility staff has. If the facility offers specialized care, ask what training staff receive to assist residents requiring this type of care. Ask the assisted living facility if they conduct national or state background checks on all employees.
Here are questions you should ask to help select the right assisted living facility, broken down into eight overarching areas that raise additional questions at each turn:
- What are my needs?
- How much will it cost?
- Where is the facility located?
- What activities and amenities are available?
- How is health care delivered?
