3 Questions To Ask About Senior Living Facilities In Vancouver

Senior living facilities in Vancouver are not all created equally and in order to find the one that is best for your loved ones, there are certain questions that must be asked during the early stages of the selection process.

If you would like to learn more about the most crucial questions that need to be asked of assisted senior living facilities in the Vancouver region, take a moment to read on and learn more, so that you can make an informed decision about the retirement community that is best for you and your loved one.

1. Is Your Staff Friendly?

The friendliness level of the staff should always be a primary concern when you are choosing senior living communities for your loved ones to reside in and you are struggling to find the facilities in Vancouver that are best for them. After all, your relative is going to be spending the majority of their time around these staff members and it behooves you to select a facility that employs kind and friendly associates.

There is no reason why your loved one should be exposed to those who do not truly have their best interests at heart and when you are in the process of making a selection, this is one of the most pivotal considerations that must be made. Take a moment to observe the staff in action and watch them closely. This gives you a great indication as to what to expect.

2. Can You Provide Fun Activities?

Every senior living facility offers their residents a few basic amenities, but it takes a special community to provide them with fun activities that truly speak to their needs. If they cannot offer your loved one any additional activities that allow them to remain busy and fulfilled, this is a sure sign that you need to continue your search elsewhere.

Check out all the different packages available and choose the one that provides your relative with the most access to their preferred activities. Senior living facilities that pride themselves on offering a high class experience for their residents know how important it is to offer activities that speak to their needs and keep them remaining happy and fulfilled.

3. Are You Accessible?

No well-intentioned relative wants to simply place their loved one in a senior living facility and forget about them entirely. They want to choose a facility that offers them the chance to have constant access and allows them to receive consistent updates about their loved one's status. If a senior living community cannot offer you the chance to receive these updates, this is not a positive sign for the future.

Ask the administrators at the facility that you are considering to provide you with a phone number or an e-mail address where they can be contacted if you have any questions or concerns. A quality facility is always willing to do so, while those who are less forthcoming may be more reticent to provide you with the ability to receive regular updates.

Our Residents

“I was perfectly happy in my home - but I came here and everybody was so nice. I thought, what a good idea to give it a try.”
“Just because we’re retired doesn’t mean we’re retired from life. We stay fit, we love the food, and there's plenty for us to do out in the community. It's a great life, and the people here are wonderful.“
“The thing I value most is that I have my independence, and I get to choose what I want to do with my time. There are so many opportunities here, and I make sure I take advantage of them.”
“There's so many things that you're offered - food, entertainment, good friends, good accommodation. Lift the phone and you've got everything you want.“
“I just think it's fabulous what they do here at Tapestry.“
"I was facing up to the prospect of living alone and I was already looking, and this place was just going to be developed - they hadn't even turned the sod yet - but I became aware of it. I just liked the looks of what they were going to do and it has turned out to be an excellent choice."
“It's an ideal combination of privacy, or not, as you will. You can live entirely self-sufficiently in your suite with your own kitchen and everything, but when you feel the need for company, it's right there. I've made lots of new friends here. It's ideal.”
