When navigating the next steps in a senior’s life, planning will help avoid much conflict.
If the time has come when assisted living is needed to keep them healthy and safe, talk to the senior to determine their wants and needs, then start exploring options and scheduling tours to find that next “best fit” for your loved one. Bring other family members into the discussion. Perspectives and opinions will likely be scattered, but by doing some homework in the beginning, you’ll be better prepared with facts and details.
Sometimes, the senior is the one that begins the process. This is a big sign they have a plan, and while family members can voice their opinions, the senior wants to feel heard and supported. The common goal is what is right for them.
When senior loved ones are involved, everyone wants to ensure they are happy, healthy and safe. It’s a multi-faceted and emotional process that we’ve helped many families navigate to a best-fit-solution.
