Choosing Senior Housing Facilities or Senior Care Options

Choosing a Senior Housing Facility or Care Option
A Step-By-Step Matching Process

STEP 1: Evaluate the needs, desires and resources of the prospective senior resident.

NEEDS —Needs encompass what is absolutely necessary for a senior’s life to continue in the best possible setting. If you are unsure about the level of care or type of housing needed in your specific case, you might begin by using our Care Interpreter TM tool which returns a matching level of care based on your responses to a questionnaire.

In most cases, expenses will be covered by the individual, Medi-Cal or by Medicare, if the person qualifies and is unable to pay the full cost. Costs for independent and assisted living facilities are almost always the responsibility on the individual. You may wish to consult an attorney or financial planner prior to making senior housing and care decisions.

STEP 2: Evaluate your housing and care options

This may sound more difficult than it actually is. Did you know you're on the nation’s leading senior housing and care site? From our search area , select the area of the country and level of care, type of facility or care option closest to your needs. Read the facility descriptions and check locations. Talk at length to the admissions coordinators at all the facilities that match your criteria.
