Q: Hello. I am looking for a place for my mom and your facility is located not very far away. Do you have any availability in a semi private room or maybe private if it's affordable. The place looks nice and clean but I hope it's in my price range.
Q: I am a snowbird from up north, moving to Arizona at the end of the month. I previously had my CNA license in another state and worked for a long-term care facility and in-home care. My license expired in 2007 and I am looking to get back into the field and get certified. My husband was in an accident and I had to take care of him for the past 5 years. He has now recovered completely and I am looking to get back in the work force. I have experience. Do you offer training clases? I enjoyed this type of work and am a very caring individual. I am familiar with Litchfield Park area. I have excellent transportation and am very dependable. I am a young 47. - Michelle
***We don't usually recommend e-mailing facilities about CNA jobs, but we have to say that this one was worded pretty well...- ALD
Q: Do you have current availability for a ALTCS resident who uses a wheel chair and walker? - Alfred
Q: I am looking for a home to place my parents in. We would prefer a 1 bedroom with kitchen and amenities. Also looking for somewhere that offers extra curricular activities. Do you have an activities director? Could you please send me more info including price, conditions etc. We want to place them ASAP.
Q: Hello! I'm helping my sister find an Assisted Living facility in or near Tucson, AZ. My sister is 58 yrs old, but is unable to live alone & care for herself. She's a cardiac patient with Back injuries, and is under the care of a few different doctors in the area. Does Always Comfort Care provide for such people, or are you only available for Seniors? How many residents is your facility certified for? What is the cost? Do you take residents to doctor's appointments (provide transportation?)
Q: How many residents is your facility certified for?
A: This is a good question to ask, and also follow up with what is the staffing ratio to residents at any facility you are interested in. You can usually look up the number of residents that a facility is licensed for by viewing it's licensing information with the state - usually within the Department of Health and Long-Term Care Licensing.
