When touring a senior retirement community, asking questions is crucial to making an informed decision. It allows you to gather valuable information about the facility, staff, and services provided. By asking the right questions, you can gain insights into the quality of care and ensure the community meets the unique needs of your loved ones.

Reflection Living offers a range of care options, including independent living, assisted living, and memory care, allowing residents to transition seamlessly as their needs change.

2. What amenities and services are included?

Take the time to learn about the amenities and services provided by the community. Are there organized activities, dining options, transportation services, or fitness facilities? Are housekeeping, laundry, and maintenance services included? Make sure the community's offerings align with the lifestyle and interests of your loved ones.
