Independent Living, Assisted Living & Memory Care. What's best for you?
This stage of life can be complex and highly emotional
“Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born.”– Albert Einstein.
Frank had spent decades in the same home and made many fond memories there, but as he got older, he found that he was struggling to keep up with the upkeep and daily tasks required. These struggles and discoveries included:
Health Issues: Frank was experiencing mobility issues and chronic conditions that required ongoing medical attention.
Safety Concerns: His nephews were concerned about his safety living alone.
Social Isolation: Frank felt isolated and lonely, contributing to his adverse mental and physical health.
Caregiver Stress: Frank’s caregiver Ernie was experiencing stress and burnout.
Financial Considerations: Frank’s financial situation found living in a senior care facility more affordable than maintaining his home and paying for in-home care services.
Despite his initial reluctance to leave the home he loved, Frank eventually realized it was time to transition into senior care. He knew that this would be a difficult adjustment, but he also understood that it would be necessary for him to live a happy, healthy, and safe life in his later years.
But how would he get from his home to the senior community with all of his stuff? He had to sell his house to afford long-term care, and where does he begin? Frank was never married and doesn't have children.
At that moment, the world seemed to be closing in, and every thought felt unmanageable.
Moving from a home to a senior care facility can be daunting, so putting it off is a common theme. That plans works for a while, but eventually it fails.
The risk is waiting to make a decision until it's an emergency. You want to make choices on your terms not wait until life makes them for you. Being proactive was the best gift Frank gave himself.
