IS ASSISTED LIVING THE RIGHT CHOICE?

Adult children and their aging parents often find an assisted living community to be an agreeable compromise. The elder maintains their privacy and independence in a private apartment, while their loved ones will feel confident the elder has the extra care and support they need.

BUT HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR MORE ASSISTANCE?

Here are a few things to consider to help determine if Assisted Living is the right choice for you or your loved one.
• Are there signs more help is needed with the activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing?
• Are there increasing concerns about personal care and safety?
• Have there been falls – or a series of falls?
• Is meal preparation becoming more difficult? Are there signs of hunger – or evidence that dietary and nutrition needs aren't being met?
• Has the family caregiver become worn-out, or are they experiencing health problems of their own?
• Do home care expenses exceed the cost of moving to an assisted living community?
• Do mobility issues make it difficult (or impossible) to safely maneuver inside and outside the home?
• Are you worried about isolation?

Let your friends at Methodist Senior Services help you understand all of the senior housing and care options that are available to you. Contact any of our twel, statewide campuses and ask to speak to an admissions counselor.
