Moving to a safe senior living Denver community involves a lot of planning and preparations. It is often a difficult decision because it marks the end of a chapter in someone`s life and, unless there is a promise of a good future, people are reluctant about making this transition, even if it is necessary.
This is why you must start prospecting early and ask the right questions to identify the best senior living community for you. There are many marketing materials but you should have much more information than they provide, so take a proactive stance, visit communities and talk to people about them.
Some of the most commonly asked questions should include:
- What are the living arrangements offered by the community?
You can choose from living arrangements in different locations, layouts and sizes, in the form of apartments or homes etc. If you need assistance of any kind, look for assisted living communities and ask details about the provided level of assistance.
- Which utilities are included in the rent?
Most people are interested about cable, internet, Wi-Fi and emergency call systems.
- Is the community safe?
Safety is one of the most important aspects for seniors, so ask about alert buttons for emergency assistance, grab bars and pull cords in places prone to accidents (bathrooms, for example), the existence of an emergency response plan, background checks for community members and other safety drills.
