Argentum Guide to Choosing a Senior Living Community
The Argentum Guide to Choosing a Senior Living Community is intended to be a resource for those considering a move to a senior living community. The guide reviews variables that should be considered when choosing a community such as the community’s location, social environment and physical features, types of care models and health services offered, available lifestyle amenities and personal residences, staff training requirements, and personal budget. It also answers the common questions: “What is senior living?”, “How do I pay for senior living?”, and “How do I choose a community?”
