It’s never easy to come to terms with having a parent transition from living at home to moving to a senior’s community. The process requires a lot of adjustments, but is an inevitable part of the aging process.
With so many different options, it can be daunting to choose the type of living arrangement that best suits your loved one and their unique circumstances.
Independent Living is perfect for active seniors who are looking for maintenance free living in a safe environment. They would still have access to home care services, but also have access to additional support services such as meal preparation, laundry, housekeeping, and emergency response.
Choosing a retirement community should not be complicated. At AgeCare, we begin with working with the family to assess their parents’ needs and wants. It’s a consultative approach, as there are many stages in the aging process.
While moving is always stressful, by planning ahead and giving your parent the time and space to cope with change, they can continue to enjoy their independence and thrive in their new home.
