DON’T MISS THE SIGNS!
It’s the holiday season, and it’s a time to re-unite with our loved ones. We may be shocked to see them aging or signs of decline that concern us. CEO of Life Care Funding Chris Orestis says right after the holidays is usually the busiest time of year for senior assisted living admissions. “Don’t blow off the warning signs,” Chris urges. There are a number of distinct signs that point to needing additional assistance. Is there more common forgetfulness or confusion? Are there things around the house that are uncommonly placed? Are they taking care of their personal hygiene?
So what are the options? And how to go about it?
Assisted Living Center
It can be difficult to bring up this conversation with an elderly loved one. They may not want to admit their loss of independence or think the task is too daunting. Luckily, with Allied Seniors we can help cut that arduous process of shopping around by assessing your needs and matching you with the best center in your ideal location.
The benefits of an assisted living center are elders are around community and they don’t have to be alone. Friendship can truly be healing at the later phases in life. Usually assisted living centers have full service kitchens with meals for their diet. Staff is always on call if there is an emergency. This is very crucial if your loved one struggles with sleep issues or dementia.
Independent Living Home Care
This is a good first step into introducing senior care. It’s a lot for a family member to take on in being a full time care-giver. Many times it possible to get these services covered under insurance. Think of it as an extra set of hands for someone who can support with daily living tasks, such as showering, personal hygiene, cooking, cleaning, etc. while also monitoring medical issues. Our caregivers at Allied Senior Health bring fresh new energy into the home and are established medical professionals.
We are here to support you through the big decisions, talk more about the options and what’s best for your specific situation. We know that everyone has a unique story, and we want to hear yours.
