Join Seth Stander as he discusses the process around choosing the “right” long-term care facility and what to consider.

Choosing the “right” long-term care facility (i.e., a facility whose mission is resident centered care) can improve both quality of life and peace of mind. Let’s discuss ways to make a careful choice: through specific observations, probing questions, and the utilization of outside resources. When a long-term care facility helps to fulfill one’s physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual needs, “life” – as opposed to mere “existence” – prevails.
