Whether you're downsizing because you’re moving into a smaller home or you’re moving into an assisted living community, we know that it can be difficult to get rid of so many things that you cherish. Giving up the home that you’ve lived in for years or the furniture your children gave you isn’t easy.
If you have an older loved one residing in an assisted living community, you may know firsthand that low energy, health issues, and mobility limitations can keep them from being as socially active as they would like to be.
We love to celebrate senior living at HarborChase, and that is why we strongly believe it is important for your loved one to feel wanted, appreciated, and most importantly, healthy. Seniors often feel that conserving an active life mentally and physically can be laborious, so we take pleasure in showing them exciting, assisted living activities that are not only fun, but extremely beneficial to their health.
In certain scenarios, a senior’s growing need for assistance may be suddenly apparent, and other times, a need for assistance may be gradual and harder to detect. So, what is the best way to tell if your older parent needs assistance with maintenance or overall assisted living services?
The generation that survived World War II and the Great Depression definitely has some life wisdom that would be worth sharing.
