5 Practical tips to make your decision to move to an assisted living senior home easier

Start Slow

If you have noticed changes in your loved one's mood, behavior, or appearance, begin with hiring in-home care for basic chores, such as light housekeeping or running errands. As the need for care progresses, add more in-home care to assist with meal preparation, bathing, and other hygiene needs.

Start a Conversation

Talk to your loved one about what the future might hold. Discuss their medical issues and what their options are for long-term care. Making a decision to move into an senior care home may not happen overnight, so be patient with them as they sort through their emotions.

Offer Choices

Make Legal Preparations

Before a long-term care decision must be made, consider the legal roadblocks that might hinder any senior care home choices. Talk to your loved one about finances, durable power of attorney, and other legal factors.

Show Them You Care

When you do move your senior loved one to a new senior care home, visit them often and talk with them daily if at all possible. Pay attention to their care, follow up on any complaints, and become an advocate for them. Most of all, remind them how much you care about them, and show them that their comfort and health is your utmost concern.
