During the research process, our advice is to “visit” each assisted living community on your consideration list. Visiting (in-person or virtual) offers the best opportunity to experience the facility, the culture of the community, staff/resident interaction, etc. A visit enables you to get a feel for the uniqueness of each assisted living community.
Factors to Help You Choose an Assisted Living Community
There are several factors that can help you determine which assisted living community near you is the right one. Let’s break them down:
If memory care is important to you, you will want to choose the best memory care facilities for seniors in Rhode Island that specializes in Alzheimer and dementia. You must look for communities that specializes in dementia-related memory care for individuals living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other memory impairments, including vascular dementia, Parkinson’s, pick’s Disease, and Lewy.
One of the main concerns when searching for housing of any kind is the cost. Please keep in mind that costs vary by state, region, timing, and required services. There are also several avenues available to pay for assisted living, including Medicaid, elderly waiver, veteran’s benefits, long-term health insurance, and more.
There are other costs associated with nursing communities that you may not have considered. Most residents will need help moving into a community. Many need to hire professional movers, which is an additional expense.
Additionally, our well-trained staff also support and care for higher-acuity cases, like behavioral issues, and early-onset memory loss for those aged 50 and older.
We have 24-hour on-site nursing services. There is either an RN or LPN in the center at all times. We also have a superior staff-to-resident ratio, which means each resident receives a significant amount of personal attention.
