cstorey, wish we could help you review an Assisted Living contract but Aging Care doesn't offer those services since the website is information only world-wide, and the vast majority of us are or were caregivers to love ones.

Most of these contacts are pretty much clear, not a lot lot of legal jargon. Make a list of questions you have regarding items that aren't quite clear.

Or if you still uncomfortable with the Contract, make an appointment with an Elder Law Attorney in your State, as each State has different laws regarding caregiving facilities.

Chuckle - I certainly agree there's not a lot of point getting it vetted after you've signed it!

I agree with CW that too that if you feel you're being rushed it's a bad sign. You make sure you take your time over it. If you don't have a lawyer up your sleeve, what about a friend, neighbour, family member or co-worker who's used to dealing with contract terms and conditions regularly?

There really shouldn't be anything too obscure or too difficult to understand in a contract which, after all, first and foremost is drawn up specifically for older persons with dwindling eyesight. So as long as you're patient with it and don't shrug off anything that isn't clear you should be fine. And you should, too, feel free to question any points you're not happy with.

Who is the contract for, by the way?

We are often pushed to sign contracts like this without being given time to fully read them let alone consider all the legal implications, however you have the right to ask for time to have the contract vetted by your lawyer. If they try to push back IMO that is a red flag.
