If you are currently looking for a suitable Denver assisted living facilities for your relative, you are faced with lots of tasks, including the evaluation of the assisted living residences available.
The assessment process should involve not only seeing the apartments or rooms occupied by the residents and obtaining a description of the services available – you should find out as much as you can about what day-to-day life is like at the facility and the best source of information in that respect is the facility’s staff. Here are some things to find out:
- The daily schedule – ask the staff about when and how the meals are served, how help is provided with daily chores, such as bathing and getting dressed, how the residents spend a typical day;
- The general attitude of the staff – talk to as many nurses, doctors and other staff members as you can to get a general idea about how kind and helpful they are when they work with the elderly;
- Qualifications – ideally, the assisted living facilities Denver staff is highly trained and receives ongoing training to improve the quality of the services provided. If your elderly loved one needs special care, such as physical therapy, talk to the staff member tasked with that to get an idea of how that part of the care-giving process is handled.
