Carefree Setting to Socialize, Senior Living Olympia

When choosing an assisted living community, several essential factors come into play. These factors will help ensure that you find the right community that meets your needs and provides a comfortable and supportive environment for you or your loved one.

Here are three key factors to bear in mind:

  1. Location and Accessibility of the Community

    The location of the assisted living community is a critical consideration. You’ll want to find a community that is conveniently located, allowing you and your family to visit and maintain connections easily.Also, consider the proximity to medical facilities, shopping centers, and other amenities that are important to you.

    Tip: Utilizing your favorite online search or maps tool, try searching “Assisted Living Near Me” or “Assisted Living in Olympia, Washington” to find assisted living communities near your location or in the city you’d like to be located.

For example, our community is located down the road from Providence St. Peter Hospital, Kaiser Permanente Olympia Medical Center, and Memorial Medical Plaza, making it a prime location close to trusted medical partners and essential medical care when necessary. This is a benefit to residents and a welcome relief to residents’ loved ones.

  1. Costs and Financial Considerations

    Understanding the costs associated with an assisted living facility is crucial. Research the pricing structure and determine what is included in the monthly fees. It’s also important to consider your financial situation and whether you can comfortably afford the community you are considering.Explore any financial assistance options that may be available to you including long-term care insurance, Veteran’s benefits, home-selling or mortgage options, and more.

  1. Quality of Care and Engagement

    The quality of care and engagement provided is paramount. After all, that is a big part of what you’re paying for when you are making the move to an Assisted Living community.Explore the care and engagement services that are offered and examine if they fit your (or your loved one’s) care and engagement needs and preferences.

    Get an assessment of care needs done by the community to truly see what is available and how care will be approached.
