Sorting through the endless information on the internet about senior living options can be overwhelming. Even if you have decided you are interested in assisted living, how do you know what to look for? Choosing an assisted living facility is an important process because there is a lot of change involved. A move is never an easy decision (or one that can be made lightly).

Finding an assisted living facility in San Angelo, TX, may not be as hard as you think. Baptist Retirement Community is part of the Buckner Retirement Services system.

What to Look for in an Assisted Living Facility

Consider taking a checklist with you when you visit any assisted living community you consider. You want to be fully equipped with questions and know in advance what you are looking for as you take a tour. Some of the fundamental categories to consider are:


You want to ensure that the staff is well-trained and has the necessary certifications and licenses, depending on specialty. How do they track staff compliance with company standards? What is the staff-to-resident ratio?

Resident input

Does the assisted living community ask for resident feedback and participation in their care? Do they have a voice through meetings and other avenues to influence choices around meals, activities, and other quality-of-life issues?


Is healthy eating a priority, and is the kitchen staff knowledgeable about the nutritional needs of the senior population? Are sensitivities and allergies dealt with well so that those who have restrictions do not have to eat a limited diet?

Activities and enrichment

Find out what activities are available and how often. Two exercise classes a week is not enough. Transportation into town bimonthly won’t do. You want to have a rich and varied schedule of opportunities to choose from. A full calendar means a community is lively and engaged.


You want to feel good in the place where you live. You made a home for yourself for many years, and you know what you like. Is the setting to your liking? Is the ambiance warm and home-like?

Finding an assisted living facility in San Angelo, TX that earns excellent marks in all the above categories won’t be hard. Check out Baptist Retirement Community today.
