10 Questions to ask on a Memory Care Tour

When touring a memory care facility, here are some questions that you may want to consider asking:

1. What training do the staff members receive to care for residents with memory impairment?

2. What is the ratio of staff to residents in the memory care unit?

3. What are the visiting hours and policies for family and friends?

4. What activities are offered for residents with memory impairment, and how often are they held?

5. Can residents bring personal belongings and decorate their rooms?

6. How are meals and snacks provided, and are there options for residents with dietary restrictions?

7. What are security measures in place to ensure residents’ safety?

8. What is the protocol for handling medical emergencies?

9. Are there specialized services available for residents with specific memory conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia?

10. How does the facility involve families in the care of their loved ones?

These questions can help you better understand the care and services provided in the memory care unit, as well as the facility’s approach to resident care and family involvement. Feeling comfortable with the staff and facility is vital before deciding where to place your loved one.

David Wood, Owner, SLO Caregivers

San Luis Obispo Caregivers was created in memory of my Grandfather, Tracy Gordon Wood II. My mission is to honor him by providing trustworthy, compassionate, and competitively priced caregiving services to seniors in my community. After 25 years in the financial industry and the decision to leave behind a successful 6-year position as the Chief Operating Officer of SESLOC Federal Credit Union, I created San Luis Obispo Home Care. This decision served my desire to make a difference and support the growing needs of seniors in my community. As my business grew and I leaned heavily on my financial background, I realized there was a much more cost-effective way to provide seniors with the care they deserve. This realization led to the creation of San Luis Obispo Caregivers, a referral agency and SLO Senior Placement, a free resource for families looking for independent or assisted living options for seniors. Ultimately, I listen, assess your situation and recommend various options that are available for your family.
