It’s the time of year when we think about the great family memories we’ve made and begin to look forward to the new year and all its possibilities. As you and your family make plans for the coming year, you may also be struggling with a difficult decision you’ve been putting off for a while now, determining when your loved one should move into a senior living community.
You’ve had plenty of excuses for avoiding it. Work’s been hectic. The holidays are here. Your kids have more events on your calendar than you do. Mom’s not ready yet. One more year at home won’t hurt.
You keep kicking the can down the road and the can just grows bigger.
Maybe that’s because you’ve been looking at it all wrong. What if the decision you think will be so hard would make life so much easier for everyone once you make it?
What if giving your loved one a new home for the new year is the best decision you can make for everyone’s peace of mind?
You want the best for your mom or dad; they have more life to live. But the more you wait, the less they might benefit from the options senior living can provide.
It’s time to ask yourself and your family some important questions.
