How do I find a retirement community that’s right for me?

Show Answer...

Choosing a community living environment can be challenging. According to the AARP, the first step is to make a list of the facilities in the area, and then call each facility and request a brochure, price list and floor plans. If you are still interested after reviewing the brochure, schedule a tour. During your visit, pay attention to how you feel and what is going on around you. Attend a scheduled activity and eat at least one meal in the dining room. Plan to spend some time with residents and staff and be sure to ask about charges and fees. The best way to compare facilities is to use the same yardstick. Take the Senior Living Facility Comparison Form with you on each tour. It will help you evaluate each facility and its staff and services side-by-side to determine the one that best meets your individual needs.

When is the right time to move to a retirement community?

Show Answer...

One way to determine whether now is the best time is to honestly answer the following questions. Do you:

  • Mow your lawn?
  • Shovel the snow?
  • Cook nutritious meals?
  • Feel safe when you shower or bathe?
  • Have someone to help you if you fall?
  • Feel comfortable driving your car?
  • Get out of the house regularly for social reasons?
A "no" answer to several questions indicates that you would likely benefit from living in a retirement community like The View. Remember, your good health is part of living at The View. If you wait until you need significant assistance, it may be too late to qualify. Besides, you want to be healthy enough to enjoy all we have to offer!

I enjoy all the many activities at The View. It is a retirement home where no one could wish for more. The staff, activities, and services are the best you can get.
