How to Find the Best Assisted Living Facility for Your Loved One

Choosing to move a loved one into an assisted living apartment is hard, but often necessary, a decision that requires a great deal of thought and deliberation. In today’s post, we’ll provide you with a few tips that can help you find the best assisted living facility for your loved one. If you’re interested in learning more about Liberty Ridge’s assisted living apartments, then get in touch with us at 859-286-4242 or send us an email at info@libertyridge.com.

Consider Their Needs


Your loved one is a unique individual with their own specific needs, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach you can take when you’re searching for assisted living apartments. Your loved one may want to remain independent in most areas of their life, or they may be ready to have some help with small chores and housekeeping duties. No matter what your loved one needs in order to transition to life in an assisted living facility, make sure that their needs are one of the most important elements of your search.

Consider Their Interests 


Your loved one’s needs are important, but so are their interests. Your loved one will want to bring their hobbies and interests with them to their new apartment, and you should try to find an assisted living community that will allow them to further develop their interests and grow as a person. As an example, many of the residents at Liberty Ridge Senior Living Community are here because they are passionate about living a faith-based life with other like-minded individuals. We regularly hold Bible studies, worship sessions, and provide a variety of other opportunities for our members to cultivate spiritual growth.

Don’t Overemphasize Location


Many people want their loved one to choose an assisted living community that is as close to them as possible. This is completely understandable, as many adult children hope that they can visit their loved ones frequently and keep in close contact as they make the transition. While we certainly understand this sentiment, it’s important to keep in mind that moving to an assisted living community is a big decision, and it’s hopefully one that will have to be made only once. The closest assisted living apartments may not be the best fit for your loved one, and you don’t want them to have to make another big life transition in another year. Location is certainly an important factor, but remember that your loved one is joining a community that will support them and provides them with a new community of like-minded people. You don’t have to visit them every day, and if you do, you won’t mind driving a bit longer when you know that their living situation is healthy and supportive.
