We understand the decision to select a senior living community is important. Below are some helpful educational resources.
Senior Living Guide
Beginning the journey of looking for a senior living community for yourself, a parent, grandparent, or friend, whether independent Living, assisted living, or memory care is a challenge for everyone. In spite of what seems overwhelming at times, the journey can be a positive adventure. Supporting your parent, grandparent, or a friend by managing his or her golden years in a creative way can be a wonderful gift when you treat them to any of our senior living communities nationwide. There are many resources to help take the stress out of the search as well as ideas that will help you plan for a brighter tomorrow. Aging services related to housing and care in America are often changing, and you have many options. Each of us at Grand Living has been on this journey with our parents and family members during the past decade, and we have collectively worked in this field for well over 100 years. Based on our personal and professional experience, we have put together some resources that we hope will help you in your search.
