Between Manatee and Sarasota Counties there are over 150 senior living communities. 5 new properties have been added or are in the process. Nationally there are 750,000 people living in assisted living environments. There are many statistics to add to this short list.
When it comes for family to make a decision to take that extra step and find a new home that can provide some extra needed assistance, a family is faced with a myriad of choices and decisions.
The process of finding assisted living, memory care and independent living is overwhelming, confusing, time consuming and can also be very expensive. These problems can be the same for the adult children as well as the senior themselves that are in the situation.
This is a highly emotional time that has many financial considerations and practical logistics.
Consumers shop for groceries and clothes regularly and know what to look for, what they want and what they can afford. Searching out senior living happens once maybe twice in a lifetime and consumers are not familiar with what to look for, options and alternatives.
Families now have alternates such as Senior Choices, a free community service to
assist and walk with the family through the process. There is no charge to the family.
How it works: Consultations with the families help to uncover financial, geographical, care requisites, lifestyle, and amenity needs and preferences.
A team of knowledgeable professionals from the senior living industry advocate for the family by narrowing down the list of potential assisted, memory, and independent living communities that match the family situation.
Your team schedules and accompanies the families on the visits, advocate for the family, problem solves, act a sounding board and assist in the decision and move in process.
A long list of testimonials from families and health care professionals is available to speak to the value of having Senior Choices at hand during the search and move in process.
