How To Choose The Right Assisted Living Facility For Your Loved One

05 Apr 2023

We understand that the issue of care is a sensitive area to come to terms with. It’s considered by families when a loved one’s mobility is restricted or finds completing day-to-day tasks a little more difficult than they used to, this is something which will naturally be quite frustrating for them. 

Choosing the right assisted living facility requires careful consideration and it can often be upsetting for those involved. During this difficult time, we want to help make this decision a little easier for as many families as possible. For that reason, we decided to discuss some of the considerations to keep in mind to help you choose the right assisted living facility for your loved one.

Culture & Values

The culture and values of the facility needs to be considered. Care is all about providing an excellent service as well as creating relationships with patients, where carers really get to know the individual they’re caring for, so that individuals can continue to live a meaningful and independent life in the comfort of their own home.

Maintaining independence is important to most individuals. That is why one of our core values is giving our clients the opportunity to live independently. We want our clients to have a peace of mind that we are there to help encourage this, while being on hand for anything their loved one is in need of, whether it’s just for day-to-day tasks or just a friendly chat with a cuppa!


Some facilities may have a limited set of services. It’s important to choose a flexible facility that offers the same service you are looking for. If you are looking for a number of services, a flexible facility can cover different areas where all your loved one’s needs are taken care of. We aim to offer a wide range of personal care services to our clients including grocery shopping, preparing meals, cleaning, laundry, managing medications, assisting with morning and night routines, arranging social events, daily outings and more.


Along with the services that the facility offers, the next thing to consider is the locations in which the facility is able to travel to and from. Personal care services take place in the loved one’s home so they can feel independent while still being in a familiar setting. 

Our team of carers can travel from Telford to Whitchurch to visit individuals from all different backgrounds. Other areas we travel to include Broughall, High Ercal, Higher Heath, Hodnet, Market Drayton, Muckleton, Newport, Prees, Rodington, Roden, Shawbury, Stanton Upon Hine, Telford, Tilstock, Upton Magna, Wellington, Wem, and Whitchurch.
