Touring and Deciding Between a Senior Living Community or Care Home
If you have time, we prefer that you tour both so you can compare. Keep in mind that the facility type that’s right for your loved one will basically depend on the senior’s preference and care needs. If your loved one is still active and alert, maybe a Senior Living Community will be a better fit since they have more activities and amenities.
However, if your loved one is not interested to participate in any activities or if he or she will not be able to use the amenities in the community, maybe a smaller care home would be a better fit.
