Another step in narrowing the field of choice involves making a very important decision – determining the best way to maximize independence and quality of life for you or your loved one. Which services and settings are suitable depend on personal preferences, how much assistance is needed, and what resources are available. It may be staying in your current residence and enlisting the help of outside services, family and friends. It may be eliminating the burden of home maintenance and upkeep by moving to a retirement community. Or it may be choosing the reassuring care of an assisted living, personal care or nursing facility.
