Elders understandably value their independence. And, they are sometimes reluctant to move into a group living situation. Consequently, as their adult child, you may find yourself needing to initiate the conversation regarding your aging parent’s transition into an elder care setting. But, what are the indicators that they could use some help? Knowing what to look for can give you the assurance that you are doing the right thing by opening up a dialogue.
Here are some changes that might signal it would be good for your parent to be in an elder care environment:
If one or more of the above indicators is present, it may be a good idea to start a conversation about life transitions. This should include the many benefits of moving to an elder care setting. It can be reassuring to your parent to let them know early on that there are many options today beyond the traditional nursing home. Many elders have a negative opinion of that kind of environment.
At Green House Homes, we have a different philosophy on elder care. We believe, and know from experience, that seniors thrive in settings where they are empowered and relied upon to be contributing members of a team that keeps a real home operating smoothly. So, the elders who live here would be the first to tell you that our approach has given them a renewed sense of purpose. It has also allowed them to make strong connections with their fellow seniors and caregivers.January/10/2018 | News
