How can I tell if a community provides good care?
A good indicator to use is caregiver to resident ratio, which tells how many residents one caregiver takes care of. Please note this number will vary between day time and night time, and will also be impacted by staff turnover. In this regard, caring home (group home) has the best ratio, typically between 1:3 and 1:6. Typical Assisted Living Communities have ratio from 1:12 to 1:20 (sometime 1:30 at night).
