Know Before You Go: Questions to Ask When You Tour a Senior Living Community

Phot of a senior for the article Know Before You Go: Questions to Ask When You Tour a Senior Living Community

When you set out to tour a senior living community, you might think the best strategy is to just see how it “hits” you—you’ll either love it immediately or you won’t. But it’s impossible to make a sound decision about what could be a big part of your future without knowing all the details.

Give yourself ample time prior to your visit to come up with questions about topics that matter most to you. Think about how you like to spend your time. What you would like in a residence. Whether or not the location is a big factor. Also try imagining what you would like a typical day in a new maintenance-free lifestyle to look like.

Ask the right questions as you tour a senior living community to gain essential facts and to give yourself the freedom to just experience it as well.
