Exploring Senior Living
When you or a loved one begins exploring senior living options, it can feel like a daunting task. But you're not alone! There are plenty of resources available to help you through the process.
How to Broach the Conversation
When difficulty with activities of daily living or the challenges of a dementia or Alzheimer’s diagnosis mean living alone is no longer a safe option for your parent or loved one, it’s time to have “The Talk.” This can be a hard reality for your loved one to face, so approach it with love, tenderness, and an openness to hear their perspective.
Why Moving to Senior Living Earlier is Better
Just because you or your loved one are able to live independently doesn’t mean it’s the best option available! Compared to living alone or even hiring in-home care, assisted living can genuinely improve the quality of life for seniors!
Dangers of Senior Isolation
Seniors who are isolated are more susceptible to physical and mental illnesses, falls, memory loss, and other risks to their safety and well-being. By moving into a senior care facility where they have round-the-clock support and a community of friends just outside of their apartment, you’ll never have to worry about your loved one being isolated.
