Great Assisted Living Questions:
Some good examples of questions received by Regents Club, which can serve as examples of the types of questions you and your family may ask facility administrators:
Q: 'My mother Mary is 77 years old and has been living with her sister in Seminole for the past three years since my father's death. The situation has become unbearable for my aunt. My mother has short term memory issues for the last 6 years. She will do things like forget she turned the stove on or put the water on. She also has COPD. My mother's income is very limited. She has $1,653 in income a month. Half of that is from social security and half is from a lifetime annuity. My mother should be eligible for the veteran's benefit of $1,057 per month and she will also apply for Medicaid assistance.
My mother's doctor is in Seminole. My mother's preference would be to find a facility in NH where I live. I believe the main reason for this is that she is angry with her sister right now. However, I am finding that preference is given to individuals already residents of NH. I have been investigating the possibilities and have realized I also need to look at what is available in FL. My mother has been living in FL for the last 17 years. Do you have a private room available and if so what would the cost be? I need to find something for my mother as soon as possible. I would appreciate any help you can provide me during this most difficult time. Thank you in advance.'
