Retirement Residence & Long-Term Care Visiting Tips – Are you in the process of touring retirement homes or long-term care homes for yourself or a loved one? Do you know the correct KEY questions to ask that will ensure guide you are in making the right choice? How do you know if the homes you are looking at will meet your needs or that of a loved one now or in the future?

Knowing that how we assess a retirement and long-term care setting is based on both what we ask and what we see/smell/taste, the author has created this eBook as a tool to assist readers in their decision- making through an extensive list of things to observe observations and questions to ask when you go on tours or request a personal visit.  Written by an experienced social worker who has focused on senior relocation for over 25 years, it delves into all aspects of care and accommodations any informed consumer should consider. Created in a chart format, readers can either use the actual document when touring homes or select questions important to them, to create their own questionnaire. The questions for retirement homes are divided into those you would ask on a first visit, and additional questions you would ask when returning for a second visit before making a final decision. This allows the user to easily eliminate homes that don’t meet their preliminary needs, while highlighting ‘next level’ questions in booking a return visit. This publication is a MUST HAVE for caregivers and seniors looking at relocation options.
