Tips for Touring Senior Living Communities in Federal Way

Posted by Jason Kitchel on Apr 30, 2021 9:32:56 AM
Moving is a major transition for anyone, especially when moving into a retirement community after having lived in their current home for a long period of time. The hope is that this will be an environment where they, or you, can safely and comfortably enjoy your/their golden years while receiving the needed level of required care. And Village Green, we seek to ensure the transition and moving process is not just incredibly smooth, but even enjoyable. We understand that with any significant life change, you don’t want to make the decision too quickly or carelessly. Just as you would tour college campuses before helping your child choose the right institution or scour the housing market for the perfect new home, so it should be with reviewing your senior housing options in Federal Way. You can learn a lot about a community by actually visiting in person, getting a sense of the atmosphere, talking to other residents, seeing how the staff interact with residents, keeping an eye out for all the small details, and asking questions to help you make an informed decision for yourself or your aging parent.
