It would be best if you have some guidelines or a list of the things that you need to consider in a facility for elderly care services. Once you have identified your needs, it will be easier for you to look for a home that would suit your needs.
The first step is making a list of elderly care facilities in the local area. Next, you need to schedule an appointment for a tour of each facility on your list; making notes on what is positive and negative about each place you visit. Keeping a detailed account of each facility will allow you to review your notes with family members and it will make the decision making process a little less stressful. Also, note down how it felt when you walked in…. “first impressions last”.
You should meticulously look at the areas that are being shown or presented by the staff or the facility tour guide. Normally, the facility manager would be the person giving the tour. You should scrutinize the facility for the safety and the wellbeing of the residents that you are observing. .
The home should make a good first impression and give you a warm feeling of home. Everything should be in good condition including the entrance and all the main rooms. The entire facility’s amenities should be neatly decorated and kept clean. The building should look and smell good.
You must also make sure that the hallways are wide enough for the residents to walk through and it should be properly lit considering that the elderly sometimes have difficulties with their vision. Don’t forget to check the entire common areas such as the living rooms, the fitness facility, the dining room, and the outside areas.
Make a note of how the residents are treated by the staff. Take time to observe the interactions between the residents and staff. You should see that there is respect, love, care and attention given. Pay attention to kitchen and the meals that are being provided.
Look at the list of daily activities provided to engage the elderly for the emotional, physical and social needs. Check on outings that the residents are taken on.
Talk to administration regarding their policies for health and safety of the residents under their care.
