Happy to help! It's definitely possible for your dad to try out assisted living before he decides to move. In fact, this is a great option for families who are not quite sure about the transition and need a little more time and information to make an informed decision. We refer to these short term stays as "respite" stays, and they offer the chance for your Dad to try out the food, activities, amenities, and care services in a community before he decides on a home. 

By signing up for free on Seniorly, you can research local communities, view pricing and availability, watch virtual tours and browse images for different community options. Our "compare" tool is also helpful during your search process, and the "save" button allows you to come back to profiles you think might be a good fit for your Dad. 
Of course, we are also available to assist you by email or over the phone. You can reach our Family Coordinators during regular business hours at (415) 570-4370. We're happy to help you test out different communities in order to find the place that is right for your family. Thanks for reaching out!
