Questions to ask yourself to know if it is time to make the move to Senior Living
One of the most frequent questions that are asked when someone begins the search for senior living is, “When will I know if it is the right time to move to senior living?”
The answer to that question will be different for everyone, but some questions to ask yourself about your own situation or that of your loved ones (as phrased below) include:
- Is mom/dad living their best life at home?
- Is mom/dad lonely?
- Are they safe?
- Do they seem to be happy?
- Are they able to take care of themselves and their home?
- Do I have peace of mind?
We take plenty of steps in our everyday life for our overall safety and comfort such as buying insurance, wearing seat belts, visiting the doctor, and more. Preparing ourselves, or a loved one, for the possibility of no longer being able to live at home is just another smart precaution to take as we age.
