IL, AL and even NH are all businesses trying to make a profit, in some areas there has been a boom in senior living units and the competition is fierce, also the sales person usually makes a commission on every permanent resident they sign. Be direct about what info you want and how serious you are about your search, being vague or indecisive sends mixed messages to the sales person and just makes them try harder to reel you in.

Make a checklist of issues on which you want information and keep the conversation directed toward those issues so you get the information you want. You may have to be more aggressive in your discussions. I've found that agency reps like to direct the conversation toward information THEY want.

Sometimes it is just easier to visit the Independent Living facilities, take a tour, have lunch there, and talk to the Sale's Rep who should give you a lot of printed material to read later on.

Some places have information on their web-site. Usually pricing isn't listed as that is always changing due to "supply and demand" of the apartments.

Some places have higher monthly fees but the amenities are included. Some places have lower monthly fees but you would need to pay extra for the amenities used. All this can make your head spin.

It's no different than looking for a regular apartment or purchasing a home. It's overwhelming but once the dust settles you are now "at home" :)
