If you have decided that it is time to start looking for a memory care community for your loved one, you’ll want to make sure you get all the information that you need to make the best decision for you and your family. One of the most important steps in the community decision process is the tour, which gives you the opportunity to have all your questions answered as you take a look around. You can also socialize with potential neighbors, taste a meal, and learn all there is to know about the community before you sign on the dotted line.
But how are you supposed to know which questions to ask to make the most of your visit and ensure that you are making the most informed decision about your community? Central Parke Assisted Living and Memory Care community in Mason, Ohio has compiled the following list of the most common questions that you should be asking to help you plan for your community visit.
