Assisted Living & In-Home Care 


Many families struggle to make decisions about the best living situation for their aging parent. Most seniors, if given the choice, would choose to remain in their own home for as long as possible, and most families want to respect that choice. What is it that makes staying home care possible? This is very subjective and varies in each situation. Many family members or caregivers have a threshold - an event in which they know that living at home is no longer an option, yet others are absolute in their commitment to keep their loved one at home no matter the circumstances. There are many options, some of which people don't always think about:


QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF

What are the wishes of your loved one?

Do they live alone?

Is there a way to improve the safety of the home?

Is there someone who could move in with them?

Is there someone they could move in with?

Could care or supportive services be brought in to keep them safe, well-fed, and healthy?

Would they benefit from having regular meals prepared for them?

Do they need medical care?

Do they need medication reminders?

Have they visited any communities that could be options?

Seniors who live alone often experience social isolation and poor nutrition which contributes to cognitive decline, health problems, depression and a lower quality of life. Many families hire home care aides, arrange for Meals on Wheels or other meal delivery services and use adult day services at senior community centers to provide a healthy environment for seniors who live at home.

Including your loved one in the decision and finding a solution that all family members can feel good about may take considerable research, time, and the support of a professional. However, knowing you gave this significant decision the consideration it deserves allows everyone to move forward feeling good about the choice
