Choosing the Right Housing with Services Facility for You

1. What do you need? First, conduct an accurate and honest assessment of your physical, financial and lifestyle needs. What services do you need? How will you pay and what can you afford? What type of atmosphere do you prefer?

2. Know what is out there. Visit as many facilities as you can to get a sense of the choices. Which ones have what you need and appeal to you?

3. Location, location, location. Consider the proximity of the facility to those who will visit you; the closer the facility, the more likely that visits will be more frequent.

4. Walk and Talk. Talk with residents. What do they like or dislike about the facility? Talk with staff. Are they friendly and knowledgeable? Eat a meal. Is the food good? Walk around the facility. Do you like its location and outward appearance? Consider making and unannounced visit to the facility.

5. Read the Fine Print. Ask for a copy of the contract and written statement of their resident agreement outlining, at a minimum, services, prices, extra charges, admission and discharge criteria, staffing and house rules. Take these materials home and read them carefully. Ask for clarification about anything you don’t understand. If necessary, speak to an advocate for seniors who can help you understand the material.

6. Do they Fix the Problems? Ask to read the licensing inspection report. If the facility had deficiencies, have they been correct? Call the Long Term Care Ombudsman program and ask about the nature of complaints about the facility and how they were resolved. In the Twin Cities area, call (952) 854-7360. Elsewhere, call (800) 657-3591.
