Every facility has different visitation policies, but in an assisted living facility an individual has more freedom and less guidelines for visitation than a nursing home. Be sure you completely understand each facilities visitation rules and ensure it aligns with the needs of your loved one. Be wary of strict visitation rules and policies that do not allow for residents to have visitors stay overnight. A good assisted living facility should give the experience that your loved one is at their own home. Strict rules can make the transition harder than it already is and can be a red flag for a facility.
