Augusta, KS ( March 22, 2013 - Assisted living Wichita are not the most popular topic of conversation. Most of us avoid this topic whenever possible. However, there are many sources of reliable information available. With this information a list of assisted living candidates will be compiled. This list should include the name of the assisted living, address with zip code, and telephone number. The following resources are immediately available. The first source of information includes the friends and relatives. Ask them if they have any experience with assisted living s. one may be surprised how many of them have been in the same situation. Word-of-mouth is, in many ways, an excellent source of truthful information, so ask them: What is its name? Where is it located? What did they like about it? What didn't they like about it? What were the deciding factors for their choice? Do they know other reputable assisted living? Do they know anything about these other assisted living? The assisted living s recommended by the friends and relatives will begin the list of candidate assisted living.

Another valuable reference is the hospital discharge planner. This individual is the hospital employee whose job is to assist the family in making arrangements for the patient's accommodations after they leave the hospital. This person (or persons) should be actively involved in the discharge of all patients. Ask the following questions: Is there is a particular assisted living to which they frequently discharge patients? Is there is an assisted living they would recommend? Why do they recommend this particular assisted living or nursing homes? These assisted livings should be added to the list of candidates for consideration.

Although the hospital discharge planner should be the ideal reference for assisted living information, a word of caution must be interjected. In some instance there exists an arrangement between the hospital and an assisted living for patient referrals. In this relationship, the hospital agrees to send their patients to this assisted living and the assisted living agrees to send their residents back to that hospital whenever they become ill. This exclusive relationship creates a financial incentive for the hospital discharge planner to limit the information in favor of their "preferred" assisted living. It is important do a lot of research about the best assisted living Wichita available in the city. Make sure to check the facilities and services offered by the assisted living. Internet is loaded with lots of information which could be very useful.
