KMH offers a new way of living. Don’t focus your discussion on the skilled nursing care (although that’s important). Rather, focus on the opportunities to be active, social and fulfilled. Take a tour. Look around. Imagine being in this vibrant community.
Talk About Timing
Time and time again, we hear our residents say “I wish I’d done this years ago.” If your parents are healthy and active, this is a great time to move in to enjoy all of the community activities.
