“Everything You Need to Ask When Selecting an Assisted Living Facility” will educate the caregiver and the family and put them in charge of their search so they won’t be sold something they may not need or may not be appropriate for their loved one.

No one teaches us how to approach our loved one’s needs for a quality of life when they can no longer stay at home. When you are faced with this situation, a question comes at you fast. “Where do I begin?” There are some books out there that explain technically, what an Assisted Living Facility is, but that’s not what you need right now.

You need straightforward, honest advice from two professionals who have 42 years of combined experience in this field.

Cindy VanDusen and Humberto Fortuna have created a guide that will take you from point A to point Z. With over 500 questions to ask when you tour a facility, you will leave no stone unturned.

Not only will seniors need this must-have book but Baby Boomers will need it to guide, not only their parents in their search, but to educate and prepare themselves for their future as well.

Even though this book gives you all of the technical information that you will require, it feels like you are sitting down and chatting with the authors in their living room…very reader friendly.

The mission and purpose of the authors is…to educate and therefore protect…our senior population.

....In summary,
..."Everything You Need To Ask When Selecting an Assisted Living Facility" is a useful tool to enable today's consumer to select the best of residential services provided to adults. It is clearly planned and created by experienced professionals in the field of senior services who share values of competent provision of the full array of services in elder care living.
