An Accommodations Checklist for Adults & Teens with Special Needs
Whether you’re interested in placing your loved one in an assisted living facility, an adult foster care home, a nursing home, or some other facility equipped to support individuals with special needs, you may wish to consider a checklist to help locate the best accommodations. Here are a few aspects that may prove to be beneficial in your search for a good home for your loved one:
- Location – Where is the potential facility located? Will you and other family members have easy access to the facility to visit with your loved one? How close in proximity is the dwelling to medical care, recreation, stores, and other areas that would support the wellbeing of your loved one?
- Track Record – What kind of track record does this adult foster care or nursing home have, regarding the care of patients with special needs? What kind of record does the facility have with the state? Has the facility ever been closed due to wrongdoing, unsanitary conditions, or other issues?
- Staffing and Services – How qualified is the personnel of the facility in handling emergencies and issues? What kind of background does the staff have with healthcare and individuals? What kind of services does the facility offer? Are there group outings? Does the potential facility offer specialized activities and care for patients?
