Deciding when an aging parent is ready for assisted living is often a difficult decision. There are often times when the senior citizen has a different perception of the necessity of assisted living than his or her children.
It may be difficult for the children to take over the decision making role from their parents.
There are emotional factors wrapped up in thinking about assisted living as well as physical factors. Sometimes it is difficult to determine the exact need. Here is a list provided by www.Seniorliving.com that may help you to decide.
Is Your Parent Ready for Assisted Living? Ask Yourself These Questions
It’s easy to overlook signs of decline in older adults, so ask yourself the following questions to help you determine if your parent is ready for assisted living:
Is your parent telling you that he is eating, but you’re seeing food go bad in the refrigerator?
Is your parent covering up bruises from falling that he or she doesn’t want you to see?
Have you seen your parent wearing the same clothes when you go to visit?
Does your parent hear strange noises in the night?
When you look around the house or yard, is it as neat and clean as it used to be?
Is your parent able to take medications correctly?
Does your parent respond appropriately to an emergency?
When you really look at your parent, do you see the bright and vibrant person from years ago, or do you see a more limited person who needs some help one hour a day, three hours a day, or around the clock?
If you answered yes to even a couple of these questions, your parent may be ready for an assisted living facility.
Another difficult decision may be deciding about the current home of the aging parents. Should you keep the home for a time? Should it be cleaned out and sold sooner rather than later? How much is the home worth? What work needs to be done in order to put the house on the market? The Veenstra Team of Evenboer-Walton REALTORS are specialists in senior real estate and are happy to help you gather the information you need to make a decision.
