Date:7/21/2013

San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2013

What's the right approach in selecting a local assisted living facility? When parents get older and their children and loved ones look for the right place, how should they look?

Jane Lefebre, a San Luis Obispo assisted living facility expert at the Manse on Marsh in downtown, highlighted a few things to look for and how to determine if the facility fits the needs of your loved one.

Here are some pointers on what to do if you have been put into the tough situation of selecting an assisted living facility for a loved one. With so many options out there, you want to make sure you find the right place. Follow this check list from Lefebre:

Environment

The facility you choose will be permanent residence for your loved one, so you should look to the environment of the facility. When you walk in the front door, do you get a warm feeling? Do the residents and staff seem happy? What does it look like? Do you feel like your invited and could you see yourself spending time there?

Safety

A place for retired folks to enjoy their days should not only be a warm and inviting place, but also a safe one. With many residents needing special care, look to the ratio of nurses to patients. A premium facility will have about eight patients to one nurse. You also want to look at the overall number of staff. This will give you a peace of mind knowing your loved one has someone there to help them and won’t be tied down with another patient. If an emergency does happen you also want know about response times, the industry average is around seven to eight minutes, with topnotch facilities in the one to three minute range. Finally, look to a quick response alert system.

Security

Make sure to choose a facility with 24/7 video surveillance. Als
