Educating Yourself

More than likely, the fact that you are browsing this website means that you are considering assisted living for your loved one or maybe yourself. Before taking this big decision, it is natural to have lots and lots of questions. After years of serving senior residents and having seen so many types of different cases, we recommend that you spend some time educating yourself about whats out there. 


Sometimes you may be even at a loss to know where to start. At times, the circumstances may change dramatically and you may not be left with a choice at all to let your loved one live independently. Check out our section on where to start to know more about preparing yourself. 


Once you have come to the conclusion that it might be better for your loved one to consider assisted living, the next step is to evaluate your needs. Every person is unique. Their conditions are unique. Needs and preferences are unique. To decide which type of assisted living is most suitable for your needs, check out the Your Needs section. Here we give you some information about the different assisted care options based on your specific needs.


The next step is to consider the costs associated with this move. Did you know that you may be eligible for some benefits from insurance or from the government. Such help will come handy if you need financial assistance for moving to assisted living. Check out our Finances section to know more.


Once you have done your research and narrowed down your options, we strongly encourage you to visit the facilities before making the final decision. Talk to the advisors, the staff and the residents to get a better feel of the place. At Del Monte, we even offer three days of free stay so that you can be better placed to make your decision. Visit our Schedule a Tour section to book your slot for the tour.


Once you have finalized the facility and its time to make the move, there are a few things you can do to make this transition smooth for your loved one. In our Make the Move section, you will find some useful information on how to do just that. Trust us, after decades of experience and having seen tons of cases, we know what we are talking about here.
