Is it time that you start looking for an affordable
assisted living facility for mom?
She can’t really keep up her house any longer, and she is tired all the time trying. You notice sometimes it seems as though she might not have had a shower and, you could have sworn she was wearing the same thing three days ago when you picked her up to go to lunch. Yes, these signs are difficult to handle, but the inevitable has come. When we grow older it gets to be more difficult to accomplish the regular daily tasks of living that we once took for granted after we learned them to begin with.
You really shouldn’t feel bad about it, I mean it is just the facts of growing older.
Loosing your independence isn’t easy at any age. Admitting you can’t keep up with housework or remember to take medications is a big step. Most seniors who are in need of the care of assisted living facilities have difficulty doing this and as adult children, we have to step up to the plate and make it easier for them to consider making the transition. It’s particularly difficult when you live in a different state and seniors are very good at keeping issues from their children. Geriatric Care Managers are a great resource to hire to look in on Mom and Dad and let you know what is going on. We can help locate such people for you.
We have even assisted a son living in England find an assisted living facility for his Mother in Lantana Florida. Does Mom or Dad need assisted living or a nursing home. Our team can do an assessment to determine your loved ones level of care in either situation and make recommendations for nursing homes as well. We stay with you every step of the way guiding you through the maze of long term care and are here for you as well. Sometimes it is harder for the families of seniors than the senior themselves.
These days some assisted living facilities are like resorts, while others have the charm of grandma’s house. It all depends on what makes them the most comfortable and gives you the peace of mind you deserve. We work with all sizes of assisted and independent living and are here to offer our support.

Do not get confused with the different terms that have been known to accompany an elder style living facility.
Most people think of nursing homes when you think about having to put a loved one in a “home”. Some people also look at it from a perspective that it is unaffordable unless the government comes in to help with Medicaid or Medicare. There are many ways that one can plan ahead for this type of situation, and it’s never too late unless you find yourself in the day where you need senior housing and you have never thought about it to begin with.
Did your insurance agent suggest a supplement be added to your policy to make it a long term health plan? That would help cover the expense should you ever have to go into a place like an assisted living facility. Unfortunately they are not always thinking of the best product for you for the money, instead they may just be pushing the product that will bring them the biggest commission.
There may be some things left out that would help you in a situation if you ever were to actually move in to a assisted living facility. For example if you have to go in one, and then you recover to the point where you don’t need assisted any more then you can lose the benefits of ever going back into one.
There are precautions that you can take to make sure that your senior level of care is always affordable.
If you haven’t had the benefit of dealing with people who cared in the past and you are in a position where you need to make the transition into senior style living, it’s not too late to get the help you need.
We can take your situation and help you make the best out of it. We won’t charge you to do that either. That’s right it’s absolutely free. Start your assisted living facility search today to get connected with our Community Relations staff who will walk you through every step of the way.
