IS ASSISTED LIVING RIGHT FOR YOU?
Deciding whether or not to seek a new living environment isn's simple, and it can sometimes be difficult to determine if the timing is right.
Here are some signs that you or 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.
