Choosing a Senior Living Community

How do you know what to look for in a senior living community? Key factors to consider include your aging parent’s needs, location, cost, amenities, and the type of care offered. An in-person or virtual tour provides opportunities to ask questions and get a sense of the community.

Cost of Senior Living and Paying for Senior Care

Senior Health & Wellness

Healthy lifestyle choices lead to improved physical, cognitive, and mental health. Staying physically active, eating a balanced diet, preventing common accident hazards, and maintaining meaningful relationships can help seniors stay healthy and live independently longer.

Senior Safety

Senior safety is a priority for many families and caregivers. If your aging parents live at home, there are steps you can take to help prevent injuries and reduce fall risks. Learn how to keep your loved one safe while aging in place.

Elder Law and Legal Issues

Caring for elderly parents often goes beyond caring for their health — it may also mean protecting their assets and finances. As a family caregiver, you may be responsible for your aging parents’ finances and legal matters. Understand important caregiver and elder law issues.

State Licensing

So we’ve compiled a directory of assisted living licensing websites by state, where you can find regulation standards in your state as well as individual assisted living facility inspection summaries and violation histories.
