Where is mom or dad going to live?

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.
