Any advice on how to find the right facility? There are so many options, the information is slightly overwhelming. Started with a place for mom but wondering if other sites exist so I can compare? thank you!!!
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
Your best bet is to find a few close by. Look up their state rating on the Internet. Then visit them personally. Mornings are a good time. They will discuss pricing with you where rates are never mentioned in the websites.
When you tour, Trust your five senses. My mom’s facility never smelled like urine. Ever. And trust your gut.
I would recommend not using them. I had the worst experience of my life and I was actually guilted by them that I wouldn't give up my retirement money so my dad could be placed in a facility that he couldn't afford. What?!? Like this isn't the hardest thing ever, I am made to feel like a piece of crap because I won't sacrifice myself so they get a bigger commission. Sick.
Ask any rehab facility for referrals, use at least 2 different ones and don't tell them the top dollar available, that is right where they go.
Some of these agencies get 50% of 1st month, others get up to 100% so you can see why they want to put you into a place that costs 3500 vs. 1500.
Also, ask the facility if they would be willing to accept less, I got 100 bucks a month off my dads AL.
Best of luck finding the right fit, it is difficult enough to deal with under the best circumstances.
Hugs to you!
Considering the day and age we are in, the search seems quite old school.
