TLC Senior Placement Solutions will walk you through the senior living placement process step by step. If you have a choice, it's best to understand your assisted living options before an emergency arises. Should you see a mental or physical situation starting to arise but the time isn't quite right, feel free to contact us and we can sit down and talk about your options.
Keeping a Journal: Having a notebook where you can write notes and keep track of questions you want answered will help you stay organized. Assisted living placement can be a difficult and emotional process.
Identify Priorities: It's necessary for us to understand what's most important to your loved one prior to placement.
Long term care is costly and what you may want for your loved one after placement may be outside of your budget. Establishing your budget is key to the senior living placement process. Decide which priorities are most important so we can discuss them.
Medical Needs: Senior living facilities or residential care homes will want a clear picture of the medical needs, diagnoses, medications, family involvement, and any behaviors they need to plan for. Know what medical professionals will have the most recent records.
Meeting With You: It's necessary for us to meet with you prior to touring assisted living care homes and senior facilities to conduct our own assessment of the situation. There are times when family members are out of town and may not know the most recent conditions of their loved one.
Assisted Living Placement Research: Based on your budget, location preferences within Tucson, and quality of life indicators, we will do our research and make an initial list of independent, assisted living, or memory care options.
Home Care Solutions is not trying to sell you any specific residential care home or senior living facility. Our goal is to open doors and make introductions but the final decision is yours. We have no reason to "up sell" because we want you to be happy, reduce your stress, and be sure that this is the last time you will need to go through the senior placement process.
Touring Residential Care Homes or Senior Living Facilities: We will present the current availability to you and schedule a time to tour. Several items should be considered when choosing a senior living facility or care home. Please take a look at our checklist for a list of items we feel are important.
