ANTIOCH, Calif., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dr. Vincent Malfitano, the CEO of Cypress Meadows and oft-referenced expert in the senior assisted living community, has offered his advice with regard to choosing the right senior assisted living community for a loved one. The advice that Dr. Malfitano provides is simple and objective, focusing on ensuring that the selection of a senior assisted living community is properly analyzed through the appropriate lens.
According to Vincent Malfitano, many families feel overwhelmed when trying to select a senior assisted living community. Dr. Malfitano suggests that it is possible to overcome this difficulty by simply listing the care that is necessary for the family member and the amenities that the family member would be certain to enjoy. Making such a list makes it easier to narrow down the initial options that are available.
"Most facilities look good on paper, so it is important to understand the specific care that your family member needs and how a facility intends to provide that care," said Dr. Vince Malfitano. "It is also important to consider the amenities that are available and how they will enrich the life of the resident.
"Once the potential facilities have been pared down in this way, Vince Malfitano suggests that there is great value in researching the reputation of each facility. According to Dr. Malfitano, the best way to find out about the quality of the facility is to speak with family members of residents, if possible.
"There is no better resource when it comes to the reputation of a facility than the family members of the resident," said Dr. Malfitano. "Obviously, family members care deeply about the way their loved ones are treated and cared for, so they are very attentive to the way a facility goes about their business. Speaking at length with the family member of a resident in this way is incredibly valuable.
"Finally, Dr. Malfitano noted the importance of continuity at a senior assisted living community, believing that a low employee turnover rate is indicative that a facility employs people who are passionate and caring toward the residents they serve. Dr. Malfitano expressed that he believes it is important for anyone seeking a senior assisted living facility to consider these factors when making their selection.
