When touring a Daytona Beach senior living community, you want to gather as much information as possible to make an informed decision about your family’s future. Asking the right questions can help you understand the community’s services, amenities, and overall feel.
It is easy to get swept up in the moment and forget the important questions you want to ask, so our team at Sunscape™ Daytona Beach has created a list of questions to help you prepare for your tour.
What Lifestyle Options Are Available?
Whether you or someone you love is looking for more socialization opportunities within community-style living or need more support with daily routines, you need to know what lifestyle options are available at the community to determine if it is right for you or your family member.
You can usually find general guidelines of what care options each community provides on their website, but by asking about them during your tour, you can get a more detailed idea of what each lifestyle option entails.
What Amenities and Additional Services Are Offered?
Beyond lifestyle options, you want to ask about personal and community amenities. While many communities offer similar levels of support, they vary greatly in their amenities and additional services. During your tour, inquire about the community’s programs so you know whether they align with your or your family member’s interests.
At Sunscape Daytona Beach, our unique approach to wellness encourages and enhances every side of you, and our services and amenities will help keep you engaged, inspired, and active. Some of what we have to offer include:

What Are the Accommodations Like?
Whichever Daytona Beach senior living community you choose will be home for you or someone you love. While the support options and amenities are important elements, the living space is a significant contributing factor to creating a desired overall lifestyle.
During your tour, ask what floor plan options are available, if apartments come furnished or unfurnished, and if there are any limitations on how much you or your family member can personalize the apartment. For instance, are you allowed to paint or hang artwork on the walls? These minor details can help you or your family member settle into the new apartment that much faster.
What Dining Options Are Available?
Not everyone has the same taste or is on the same eating schedule, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, these factors could determine if a particular community is right for you or your family member. When you tour a Daytona Beach senior living community, be sure to ask about the meals they serve and what dining options are available.
For example, inquire about how many meals per day are included in the monthly rate, if there are menu options for every meal or just one set dish, and if there are strict mealtimes or if the community offers anytime dining.
At Sunscape Daytona Beach, our menus consist of flavorful, locally sourced, and seasonal ingredients, so you can try new dishes on a regular basis. We craft delicious dishes for a variety of dietary restrictions and create tantalizing menus to celebrate special occasions. Because we offer anytime dining options, you can always eat on your own schedule while enjoying the company of friends, neighbors, and family.
These questions are intended to be a starting point to help you in your search for a Daytona Beach senior living community. Of course, feel free to ask follow-up questions until you feel you have gathered enough information to make your decision.
