Assisted Living, A Community to call Home

One of the greatest advantages to an assisted living center is the social opportunity and interaction.

Helping your parents find the right assisted living facility? Are they ready emotionally for this change? Are they starting to have difficulty doing essential daily tasks of living such as showering and dressing, getting around, cleaning and cooking meals? They can get the daily supports they need, and yet remain as independent as possible in an Assisted Living Facility.

The whole idea of leaving their home may be difficult for mom or dad at first, but once they realize they can rest easy knowing their needs will be taken care of, they will become more comfortable to the idea of transitioning to assisted living facility. 

Residents of assisted living are other seniors who, like them, need help with daily life – fixing meals,  and possible toileting assistance, travel for doctor’s appointments, keeping their house clean.
