The transition from one’s home to a low care facility can be quite challenging for both the elderly person as well as friends and family members. It is important to evaluate the hostel facilities and ensure that they are relevant to the needs of your loved one. Different residents have varying needs based on their health condition, mobility issues and other conditions resulting from old age.
One of the most important areas would be the safety and security of the low care facility. Safety railings in the hallways and easy access to medical assistance would ensure that your loved one is always safe. A healthy diet and cleanliness would ensure high quality lifestyle for your loved one.
There should be enough opportunities to socialize and special attention should be given to individual hobbies and interests to ensure that your loved one is always engaged, happy and enjoying the community. Apart from the facilities, another important criterion would be the cost for which you need to do proper research and also seek recommendations from family and friends.
