What to Expect During Your Tour of an Assisted Living Community

Here at Vista Springs, keeping you safe and healthy is our top priority. That said, if you’re looking to take a tour of one of our assisted living communities, we’re happy to offer these virtually.

In order to make your virtual tour effective, we try to make them as close to the real thing as possible. We’ll walk you around the property, show you all of the accommodations, and answer any questions you may have. And don’t worry—we’ll move at your pace, so you never have to worry about missing anything. We understand that it may be a hassle having these virtual meetings, so we’re here to ease any stress and provide more clarification on the process.

Keep reading to learn more about our virtual assisted living tour and what to expect:

Why Tour Virtually

As COVID-19 is still a global health concern, keeping everyone safe and healthy is always our top concern. Check out some reasons why a virtual tour is the right move:

Safety and Health During the Ongoing Pandemic

As you probably know already, seniors have a higher risk of catching a severe case of COVID-19. While Vista Springs is an assisted living community, we take advanced measures compared to the average establishment. In order to keep you, our staff, and our residents safe, a virtual assisted living tour is the smart move. As soon as local state officials tell us otherwise, we will continue to offer these virtual tours.

However, while these virtual visits are a hassle for some, there are several benefits to consider. Check out some advantages below:

Helpful for Loved Ones who may not be Able to go on Physical Tour

A virtual assisted living tour here at Vista Springs may be more suitable for those with physical disabilities. While we would love to show you around our gorgeous property, moving around pain-free just isn’t possible for some of our guests. While we want to make you as comfortable as possible, a virtual tour can be the best option. This allows us to show you everything Vista Springs has to offer, all from the comfort of your own couch. If you or a loved one isn’t able to go on a physical tour, a virtual tour could be the perfect solution!

More Family Members or Friends Can Join Along

In-person tours here at Vista Springs are currently limited to two people. But during a virtual assisted living tour, you can have as many as you want! However, as we want the tour to be valuable, we ask that you please don’t invite too many people. As your family may be excited about this big decision in your life, now everyone can experience the tour together!

What to Expect

In order to have a smooth and beneficial tour, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. Here’s what to expect regarding your virtual assisted living tour:

Check Your Internet Connection Prior to the Tour

Since technology can be a pain, we ask that you please check your internet connection before the appointment. If you need help, ask a friend or loved one for assistance.

Community Representative will Connect with You via Webcam

When your appointment begins, you should expect a video call from one of our representatives. They will connect with you via webcam, so you’ll also want to make sure your webcam is on and working.

A Virtual Tour Just Like the Real Thing

Once we have all of the technology squared away, a representative will walk you around the property, just like they would during an in-person appointment. Our virtual tours are powered by a mobile device, so we show you all over our beautiful property!

We're Here to Answer Your Questions!

While this may be a virtual assisted living tour, that doesn’t mean we can’t answer your questions. Please, if you have any questions while we’re showing you around, feel free to speak up. We know how these virtual meetings can feel awkward, so don’t be shy to speak up and ask your question. We’re here for your needs, so ask away! Our representatives are extremely knowledgeable, so you’ll always be in good hands!
