IS ASSISTED LIVING RIGHT FOR YOU? 

  

Deciding whether or not to seek a new living environment isn't simple, and it can sometimes be difficult to determine if the timing is right.


Here are some signs that you or your loved one may benefit from moving to one of our assisted living communities:


  • Mobility issues – difficulty with daily activities or frequent falls and other safety concerns
  • Memory loss – misplacing items or wandering away from home
  • Medication concerns – forgetting to take medications as prescribed
  • Lack of socialization – not interacting as usual; untidy surroundings and poor personal hygiene
  • Fear and depression – unwilling to seek medical help or assistance; withdrawal from others
  • Lack of appetite – not receiving proper nutrition throughout the day

If any of these signs are being experienced, the move to an assisted living community may be a very good option, as life for seniors often improve through socialization, regular diet and medication management.


OUR ASSISTED LIVING CHECKLIST may also help you decide if you'd benefit from an assisted living environment.
