There comes a time in life when your parents are ready to discuss selling their home and moving to somewhere with more assistance. Deciding which is the best assisted living facility is right for your family can be confusing and stressful.
Everyone just really wants to choose the best assisted living facility for their family member.
A Place for Mom helps families make the best decision for them. They spend time getting to know you and your loved one to determine what’s important to you. They ask basic medical questions about your loved one’s health & from this information they take that intimidating list and narrow it down to the top 3-5 best assisted living facilities for you and your loved one.
The best part? It’s free to you!
A Place for Mom is paid by their participating communities if a family member moves into a senior living community or signs up with a home care provider.
Their advisors’ recommendations are unbiased because they are not compensated based on which community is chosen. They are simply incented to help your family find the right solution that meets your unique needs.
In fact, our own REALTOR, Sue Lusk-Gleich, called A Place for Mom, to help her find the best place for her mother:
“When I called them, they asked a series of questions to help me narrow down choices as to a place for my mom here in Columbus. They saved us an enormous number of hours of research and visits with their knowledge of what was available in Columbus and how their recommendations would best fit my mom based on our answers to their questions. All these retirement and long-term health care facilities have their marketing departments that make every place sound like the place you would want to be. A Place for Mom helped us sort it all out. Mom went to one of the 4 recommendations they made to us and it was a perfect fit. The best part? A Place for Mom cost us absolutely nothing to use them and get those recommendations.”
To begin, we recommend that you do a little research on what’s available in your area or the area you’re considering. Once you get a feel for that, contact A Place for Mom to get a list of narrowed-down recommendations.
A Place for Mom operates in the US and Canada so, they can help even if your loved one lives away from you. You may want to consult a financial planner and your loved one’s physicians as well since medical and financial considerations are often essential considerations.
Of those 3-5 places on the recommended list, we advise you to do your research well. Read up on the different types of care offered, visit each in-person to ensure that it’s as nice in person as it is on paper, ask lots of questions & pay attention to the answers. It’s helpful to take notes of their answers to be used for comparison later.
