Having a conversation with an aging loved one about senior living can be a tricky task, especially if he or she isn’t open to the idea of moving.
Before initiating such conversations, get a sense of your loved one’s needs. Consider these questions:
- Is he or she experiencing unusual forgetfulness?
- Is the upkeep on their home too burdensome at this point in time?
- Does your loved one need round-the-clock supervision to keep up with daily hygienic habits?
Senior living options offer varying levels of care and independence depending on your loved one’s needs, and provide a safe and comfortable environment—whether that’s short or long-term.
