Senior Living: Being proactive can save you time, money, and stress
You’ve toured the senior living community, asked all of the right questions, tasted the food, met the residents, and have worked out all of the details for your golden years to be great. You are set to move, when the director informs you that there is a waiting list. What?
Desirable retirement communities will have a wait list. The list could stretch into months, and occasionally years. To help navigate this, be proactive with your plans. Don’t wait until the moment you need assistance. Instead, start your search now and consider adding your name to the waiting list of your desired community.
Ask what the waiting list involves:
- Is it an open-ended waiting list where you can keep your place on the list until you are ready to move?
- What type of deposit is required?
- Is the deposit refundable and under what circumstances?
- What benefits will I receive while on the waiting list, such as use of the amenities, or invitations to events?
Once you are on the waiting list, relax. You just made a big decision that will improve the twilight of your life.
