Finding the Right Catholic Retirement Community

If you're looking for a senior living facility that adheres to Catholic beliefs, you'll find one in most communities and every state. In fact, according to the  Catholic Health Association of the United States, assisted living and skilled nursing are core components in the continuum of Catholic health care. And Catholic facilities welcome people of all religious beliefs and backgrounds.

In addition to your loved one's health and spiritual priorities, your search for a Catholic assisted living community or Catholic nursing home should consider your overall sense of the facility. It should feel warm and welcoming, with a compassionate staff. Residents should be gracious and have good things to say about their home. Those feelings and that experience are what you'll want for your loved one.

Deciding on Catholic Retirement Living

Finding a Catholic assisted living facility or Catholic nursing home takes careful consideration and research. Spend time touring your top assisted living choices. Meet with staff, ask questions and talk to residents if you can. The right assisted living facility will offer the care, amenities and comforts your loved one needs, and it will feel like home.
