What to Look for When Choosing Senior Care in Burlington

guidance for seniors and their familiesWhen you are choosing an assisted-living residence, there are three main aspects to ask questions about: the staff, residents, and residence. The staff should make time to speak to you, appear genuinely friendly and interested, greet and interact with residents in a friendly and warm way, and handle emergencies in a professional manner. Residents should appear happy, enjoy socializing, be approachable, and there should be hobbies and groups on site that interest you or your senior loved one. As for the residence, it should be clean, provide housekeeping often, be safe and secure, have bathrooms that are easily accessible, and have a variety of food options.
