Frequently Asked Questions When Searching for a Senior Living Community

Caregiving, Financial & Legal Planning, Retirement Living Options | March 28, 2019

If you’re looking for a senior living community, you probably have a lot of questions. At American Senior Communities, we think it’s important to have an open and honest dialogue with anyone who is considering senior living so they can have all the information they need to make an educated decision about their future. Here are some of the questions we hear the most:

How do I know what level of care I need?

When you begin your search for a senior living community to call home, you will find that there are a variety of different care levels available. The specific needs you may require are determined based on your daily lifestyle. If you can perform tasks like bathing and dressing without assistance, you may find that an independent lifestyle choice, such as our Garden Homes or Independent Living Apartments may be more appropriate for your future move. If you need help with those tasks, an assisted living community may better suit the level of care you need.

If you are unsure of what needs you may require, don’t worry! Our team of experts will help figure out your personal needs through our assessment process to ensure that you receive the best quality of care and support.

What dining options are available?

At American Senior Communities, we take pride in creating a pleasurable dining experience. Your meals are prepared each day by a highly-skilled team of culinary experts. They deliver meals that are well-balanced, wholesome and taste great.

Our Signature Culinary Experiences don’t stop with your daily mealtime. We provide social experiences such as happy hour, chef demonstrations, resident taste testing and seasonally-themed meals. We also offer private dining room accommodations for special meals with friends and family.

With a variety of floor plans available, our residents may also utilize their own private kitchens and kitchenettes to prepare meals in their home.

Will I be allowed to bring my furniture and things from home?

When you’re living in one of our communities in Indiana and Kentucky, we want you to feel just as comfortable as you did at home. That means surrounding yourself with the furnishings, decorations and memorabilia that represent everything you’ve accomplished in your life. Whether it’s in our assisted living or independent living communities, you’ll be free to bring those things with you and really make your new home reflect your unique personality.

Can I bring guests?

At American Senior Communities, we consider each member of the community to be part of our family.  That includes your friends and family as well. That’s why you’re welcome to invite guests at any time. Whether you’d like to sit down and have a meal with them in one of our restaurant style dining rooms or invite a friend to participate in a scheduled social activity with you, we encourage you to make the people in your life part of your senior living community experience.
