"What to Ask When Visiting a Retirement Community" and "What to Ask When Interviewing a Home Caregiver" are available online and in Seniors Guide Magazines in Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, and Indiana

Staying true to their mission, Seniors Guide hopes these helpful print outs will continue helping families make the best decisions in aging.

Visiting retirement communities and interviewing at-home caregivers has just gotten easier, courtesy of new printable forms that guide families on their search for senior care on http://www.SeniorsGuideOnline.com.

The helpful “cheat” sheets, like the ones available in Seniors Guide Magazine, can be used during tours of assisted living, rehab, and nursing home communities.

“’What to Ask When Visiting a Retirement Community’ is a helpful checklist that families can bring along with them when visiting a nursing home,” says Katharine Ross, Vice President of Seniors Guide Magazine and SeniorsGuideOnline.com.

“Families can often feel overwhelmed while researching retirement communities, and may forget some of their questions when taking a tour,” says Ross.

Along with being a helpful questionnaire for visiting a retirement community, the helpful questionnaire also serves as a checklist and advises to take notes of what is seen. Activities that are going on and observing residents while visiting are also noted and advised. There are also additional resources to consider when looking into memory care for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients.

“What to Ask When Interviewing a Home Caregiver”, is a similar checklist for families to have handy while they are in front of candidates for at-home nursing or companion care.

“Much like a job interview, families along with the senior themselves, want to make sure they find the right fit when pairing a caregiver with a loved one,” says Ross.

The home care checklist serves as a reminder to note the type of services offered along with costs of care, detailed information about the agency or home care company, as well as notes about the caregiver interviewed.

“Keeping an individual sheet for each home care agency or caregiver will help make the decision of hiring a home caregiver easier,” says Ross.

Staying true to their mission, Seniors Guide hopes these helpful print outs will continue helping families make the best decisions in aging.
