Senior living homes are retirement homes for elderly people wanting to opt for a comfortable and independent lifestyle. At times people tend to invest in a property with an aim of long term investment but end up landing in a home they don’t want to live for the rest of their life.
A person tends to make the right decision when he knows what can possibly go wrong. Choosing a senior living home in India can be a challenging task when one needs to look for the right size of the place, the right location, the right price and the right services offered.
Here are some areas where you can
possibly go wrong while choosing a senior living facility.
1. Run a complete research
If you are planning to buy a property, it is advised that you should do thorough research. You are not supposed to just scratch the surface while researching; you need to thoroughly dive into all senior living homes and services offered by them.
Look out for all the services that the senior living is offering. Think if they are providing services which you might need, such as lifestyle activities, dining services, etc. Once all of this is taken into consideration, you are good to take the next step forward.
2. Avoid moving from a large home to a small home:
The second thing that you should be careful about is that don’t compromise on the area. Most of the people downsize from almost 2000 sq. ft. to 800 sq. ft. as they are tired of living and maintaining a big house. However, while living in 2000 sq. ft., you are used to space and comfort. So, it is advisable to downsize to 1400-1500 sq, ft.
3. Consider future support needs
While searching for the senior living, don’t just focus on activities offered, plumbers or electricians offered or dining services offered, look at the need for tomorrow. Introspect about the situations when there is no one around and seek answers to “Is there enough care service which can take care as you age?”. Thinking about the future helps either partner when they reach a stage of their life when they need assisted care.
According to a recent report, Indian Senior Care Industry 2018, by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), “In about 30 years from now, the elderly population in India is expected to triple from 104 million in 2011 to 300 million in 2050, accounting for 18% of the total population in 2050.”
