Transitioning into a Senior Living Facility The decision to move a loved one to a senior living

facility isn’t easy. Change is difficult in any situation, especially when it involves making decisions for someone you love who may not fully embrace, understand and accept the situation. With many options and information available today regarding senior care, a well-planned process can make the decision easier on all parties involved. Making the transition easier starts by being upfront and honest. Include your loved one in the decision making process so that they feel in control and empowered. If possible, have the conversation about senior care before the need arises. Prepare information about different housing

options available in your community. Be sure to ask permission to have the discussion and choose the right time and place in which to have the conversation. Once you’ve selected a home for your loved one, become as involved as necessary in order to resolve concerns and make things as comfortable as possible for them. Visit as often as you can and talk to the staff about any concerns or questions you may have. Staying involved and working as a team will help all of you reach a comfort level that will benefit the entire family.
