Getting Started

As you consider various care options, here are some useful tips to kickstart your evaluation process and essential questions to pose before making a decision.

Seek guidance and recommendations from impartial sources such as consultants, friends, family, or physicians whom you trust.

After compiling a list of care options, take some time to browse through their websites to gather more information about their services and offerings. Additionally, consider checking online reviews of the communities, bearing in mind that personal opinions can vary greatly, so it’s crucial to balance them with other information you’ve gathered.

Once you’ve narrowed down your list, begin scheduling visits to your preferred facilities. During this process, pay attention to crucial details such as the manner in which staff members interact with you over the phone, the responsiveness to messages, and their level of knowledge and helpfulness.

Understanding the distinctions between various types of care can still make it challenging to determine the most suitable assisted living or skilled nursing facility for yourself or your loved one. In order to assist seniors, families, and caregivers in comparing different skilled nursing communities more effectively, we’ve developed a Five-Star Quality Rating System. This system assigns each facility a rating ranging from 1 to 5 Stars. A rating of 4 Stars and above indicates “much above average quality” care, while a 1-Star rating indicates “much below average quality.

Throughout advantAGE seniors 20 plus history, we’ve consistently achieved a 5 - star status.
