Community Tour Checklist

Taking a tour of a senior living community to see if it’s the right fit for you or your loved one? Use this checklist as a guide to help you through the process.

  • Were you greeted promptly by the front desk team and offered assistance or a refreshment?
  • As you tour the community, observe the staff and resident interactions. Is the staff patient, helpful, and kind? Were you greeted and welcomed by residents and staff as you toured?
  • Did you observe residents socializing with each other and/or attending activities? Ask a resident about their community experiences.
  • Was there an activity or life engagement calendar posted or was one provided in your tour packet? If so, do any of the planned activities meet your or your family member's needs?
  • Is the building clean and odor free?
  • Are the hallways, doorways, and common areas conducive to safe walking?
  • Take the time to have a meal. Is the service staff friendly and attentive? Are the dining hours and food choices flexible? Did the staff meet your food handling expectations?
  • Take time to meet the executive director of the community or other key team members.
  • Ask how many staff members are scheduled throughout the day.
  • What is the evening availability of the care team? What is their system for obtaining 24-hour assistance?
  • Ask about staff training and credentials, and request to meet the licensed nurse at the community.
  • How many hours per day or per week is the nurse in the building?
  • Ask to see their most recent state survey.
