Why Should You Make a Move Now?
Are you or is someone you know thinking about moving into assisted living or independent living in Ann Arbor?
Why are you putting it off? There’s no better time than the present!
According to A Place for Mom, here are five common reasons families might delay a move to assisted living:
“I live too far away to make a decision.”
If you’re looking at the possibility of managing your loved one’s care at a distance, you are not alone. To make the process easier, schedule family meetings with other involved loved ones to discuss making a decision. If your loved one’s health changes unexpectedly, seek help from online and offline resources and referral services in order to determine what will fit your loved one’s needs and budget.
“I need to talk with my loved ones about assisted living.”
Be realistic about what will happen if you do nothing. When it’s time to make a decision, don’t put it off. You should seek help from a counselor, friend or a support group and other family members.
“I want to do more research.”
Researching assisted living can be a daunting task. If you’re worried about ratings and the quality of care, visit the Federal Medicare website here. If you have more questions or need more advice about senior housing, we can help you.
“I’m concerned about assisted living costs.”
One important thing to check is what’s included in the monthly cost of assisted living: the sticker price may cover amenities such as housekeeping and meals – or it may not. The key is to understand what the costs mean and what you get for your money, so make sure you do your research.
“My senior loved one is not ready to leave the home.”
Get informed about the most common fears associated with assisted living. Once your loved one can articulate his or her worries and feel like they are being heard, you can take steps to ease their fears.
