Choosing the Right Assisted Living or Independent Living Facility

Change is never easy. Perhaps Mom and Dad have long been independent and healthy but now need assistance in the activities of daily living. Maybe a loved one has been providing these services at home and it has become too difficult. Or perhaps a loved one has suffered a health crisis that prevents them from living safely on their own. Whatever the story may be, the truth is that a change needs to be made.

What's next? 

How to know what facility is best? 

What is the difference between an independent living, an assisted living, and a skilled nursing facility? 

Can we afford it? 

Are there benefit programs that can help us pay for long-term care?

How can I make sure it is the right facility? 

The questions go on and on. While a move to an independent living, assisted living, or skilled nursing facility will be one of the most emotionally taxing experiences a family will endure, it doesn't need to cause distress. Allow Utah Senior Planning to walk you through the process.

We offer a free-of-charge facility placement service to assure that your loved one can feel comfortable in a new environment. Unlike other placement services which blindly send your contact information to the facilities nearest to your zip code, Utah Senior Planning will help you understand the choices before you in a sit-down meeting, enabling you to have the information you need to make an informed choice. 

By utilizing Utah Senior Planning's years of experience in the field of long-term care, you can be assured that you have made the right decision. We know the places we would trust with our own families -- and the ones we wouldn't. And because Utah Senior Planning is not beholden to recommend any one facility in the community, and is not receiving a financial benefit for placing you in a certain facility, you will know your decision is done in the right way and with full neutrality. YOU are our client, not the facility. 

We will sit down with you and discuss all the important factors that go into choosing the right facility: proper care and staffing, financial security, ease of access, a history of success, and many more. Our expert will then provide you with a unique and personalized Care Planning Report, which will give you a few final considerations and a recommendation on where we feel your loved one will find success and health.
