When my dear husband Richard was in assisted living due to his Parkinson’s and Lewy-body dementia, I learned first hand the importance of being proactive in the quality of his care.  My attention to details and follow up to ensure expectations were met made a big difference to his experience.  Now with concerns about COVID-19 in care facilities, this level of importance is more critical than ever.  Don’t be afraid to be proactive.  Ask questions.  Observe how the facility is run.  Follow up on questions and concerns.  Expect excellence.  Your loved one’s life could depend on it.
