NOTE: As of today, 2-20-20, we are still working on rebuildiing this website to provide the best
possible information. What is below is work in progress and we hope to complete the rebuild by 3-1-20. In the meantime,
please direct any questions you may have to me by telephone at 978 682 4324 (sorry for any inconvenience).
Finding the right assisted living is probably one of the hardest things that
you will ever do.
It can be very confusing.
This Website is designed
not only to tell you about the Grace Morgan House, but provide you with ways of thinking about assisted living and help you
make the best decision no matter where you go.
In the end, we believe that "there is a right
place for eveyone." The purpose here is to help you figure out the "right place."
Chosing an assisted living is not a repeat buying decision. It is not like buying a pair of shoes or a pound of cheese.
Most people find themselves trying to puzzle this out only once (maybe twice) in their entire lives. So it is not unusual
or exceptional that people find the choices and options confusing and intimidating.
most important thing is to know what questions to ask.
are (some) of the questions that you should know the answers to (there are
links to the "answers" to provide the room to make the answers more complete):
1.What is the difference between a nursing home, assisted living and independent living?
would my family member be considered to "needy" or inappropriate for assisted living (are they inappropriate now?)
3.What levels and types of confusion would require memory care versus traditional (non-lockdown) assisted living?
4 What will happen to my famiily member when their funds have run out and they can no longer pay?
5.What features or aspects of an assisted living are most important for someone in their eighties and nineties?
6 What is the profile of the "typical" person who needs assisted living?
How is assisted living priced?
8 What criteria do we have to meet to qualify for a low income
9 What do the people who have actually lived, or had relatives live in the
place have to say about it?
