How to Find Assisted Living that is Right for You

Living on the coast where there are white sandy beaches and perpetual days of sun and warmth has a well-earned reputation of being very friendly and welcoming to 65+-year-olds in search of assisted living communities. Communities situated near the beach are certainly popular amount older adults, especially those who have retired and want to move to a place with nice weather year-round. Seniors looking to move into an assisted living community or other type of senior care facility may want to move to a place where the sun is always shining, However, with so many options from which to choose, it can be overwhelming to pick the best Florida assisted living center. Here are some key things to factor in when making a choice. 

  1. Location, location, location. When it comes to the location, there are also certain considerations to consider such as whether or not living in a tourist-heavy area is desirable, beach or ocean access is wanted, and the general demographics of the area. 
  2. Services and programs. Assisted living facilities vary greatly in the kinds of services they offer. Some offer three daily meals as a part of the plan, while others offer a more robust social activity program. The kinds of services an assisted living facility offers can help narrow the choices and make choosing the right one easier. 
  3. Cost. It’s really important to research the cost of any facility one might be considering. Facilities that offer 24/7 medical assistance and more services and programming will also be more expensive. However, many of them also take insurance to help pay for the length of stay, but this varies among the facilities. What a family can afford will greatly narrow which facilities to research or visit in person before deciding on one. 

These three factors can help a family make the right choice when it comes to choosing an assisted living facility and future home.

Different Ways to Upgrade Your Duramax

Depending on what year of Duramax truck you have, you could have anywhere from 235 to 400 horsepower. Most people with diesel trucks look for between 600 and 700 horsepower. One option to get this is to drop your truck off at the shop for a while. However, you may want to keep this project in-house if you are on a budget. Adding boosting Duramax products will really give you the increased power you want. Here are several ways you can get a boost with these truck-specific parts.

Get a Bigger Exhaust Pipe

Think about adding a 5-inch exhaust pipe. If you don’t reach the highest horsepower capabilities, there are no drawbacks to having a larger pipe, and you will get the louder noise everyone wants. Just keep in mind that these can be pricy.

Increase Your Air Intake

As far as air intake goes, focus on lessening restrictions. Look for filters sealed inside boxes and draw cool air from the atmosphere rather than the engine bay.

Install the Right Tuner

Tuning is another way to unleash a lot of power. Add a tried and true tuner for the best results on your truck. With a factory engine and only the simplest upgrades, the right tuner can give you up to 150 extra horsepower. It can also increase your fuel efficiency and make in-town trips much more enjoyable.

Fix the Manifolds

The factory manifolds can be the most restrictive part of the exhaust system. They have small ports and harsh bends. If you want to upgrade your horsepower, don’t leave the factory one on there. Instead, look for something that can reduce exhaust drive pressure, increase your turbo spool up, and last longer.

Whether you are shooting for maximum horsepower or want a little boost, there are several things you can do to upgrade your Duramax truck. These are several of the best ways to get more power and can be installed right in your garage.
