Each community offers a different variety of services. It is very important to ask specific questions about all of the services that are offered in each community to get the biggest bang for the buck. Some communities offer an “all inclusive” rate that covers all/most care needs. Some communities have “hidden” fees or a sliding scale of sorts which can be misleading upon admission. Questions are important, ask for specifics. Most communities offer meals and snacks, housekeeping services, laundry services, activities and medication reminders and/or assistance. Some communities offer transportation, incontinent supplies, etc. Knowing the extent of all costs involved up front is one of the top questions that should be asked when researching a potential community.
