Questions to Ask Your Senior Care Advisor at Care Solutions
Of course, any time you seek professional help, it is wise to ask your own questions. To make sure your senior care advisor is the right fit for you, you may have more questions for your senior care advisor, but here are some questions you can start with:
Are there cost-effective housing options just outside my zip code?
One of the first things your senior care advisor will want to know is your location preferences for senior care living. However, you may find more cost-effective options if you expand your search area, so keep an open mind.
Can I find a senior living community that allows us to tie in volunteer services such as Meals On Wheels, etc.?
You’ll be pleased to find that many senior living communities have relationships with local community services and volunteer organizations. If you are currently using a service that you’d like to continue with, even after your loved one moves into senior care living, or if you feel you might like to try those services in the future, let your senior care advisor know.
Can you tell me about your background and experience?
In order to build a trusting relationship with your senior care advisor, ask about their personal and professional experience with senior care and assisted living facilities. This will give you an idea of any common ground you share and how they handle themselves professionally. Once you’re comfortable with your senior care advisor, it will be easier for both of you together to find the best care solution for your loved one.
Do you know of any financial programs that are city or state-specific?
Senior care living can be costly, so be sure to let your senior care advisor know if you’ll need financial assistance to cover the costs of senior care, such as Medicaid or Veterans Benefits. The sooner you apply, the better. Many government-funded programs have a lengthy application and approval process. Apply quickly and continue your search for care and housing options while that piece is in works.
