If you are currently looking for the right assisted living in Castle Rock facility for your elderly loved one and you already have quite a few Castle Rock facilities on your list, the next phase in your search should be to visit the facilities to see them with your own eyes. Here are some seemingly subtle, but very important things to check during your visits:
- Cleanliness – a trustworthy home, whether large or small, is impeccably clean. Check that aspect on the corridors, in the dining room, in the toilets and wherever you go;
- Air quality – many elderly people suffer from incontinence, which contributes to a characteristic odor pervading everything in facilities that don’t have sufficient cleaning staff. Pay attention to the quality of the air in the facilities you visit – it is very important for the comfort and the health of your loved one;
- The number of the staff and their attitude – your elderly loved one might need help with more and more activities and their behavior might also become increasingly difficult to manage, so the staff to resident ratio and the way that the staff members talk to and behave with the residents as well as the general atmosphere in the facility are also very important.
