Convincing Your Loved One to Consider Assisted Living
The signs began to show up sporadically. Then, one day it seems those small signs had become the norm.
It may seem like things changed without warning. Suddenly, you see signs that worry you about your loved one’s well-being and safety. On your weekly visits to check in on them, you’ve been troubled by signs you previously dismissed as minor.
Maybe you sensed that your loved one had missed a meal one day. They haven’t been as tidy as they were in the past. The kitchen is unkempt and mail has piled up everywhere. They had a close call or fall a few months ago. You see noticeable frailty, changes in hygiene and frazzled appearance. And top all of that, you don’t think they’ve left the house in days.
These signs could all be reasons to consider assisted living for a loved one. While a caregiver or relative can be a great resource for daily care needs, a full-time assisted living program may be the best fit for your family.
Summerset’s Assisted Living Program
Summerset Assisted Living Community is a great option because we make it our mission to make each resident feel that they are home away from home when they walk through our doors. With that warm environment, we offer amenities that include:
- Relief from the day-to-day chores of cooking, cleaning, etc.
- Companionship and daily activities
- On-site medical assistance
This sounds great to you because it’s a worry-free solution. But, you’re pretty sure it will take a little convincing to get your loved one to consider this option.
To help facilitate the decision-making process, you can bring them to Summerset for a tour of our top quality facility. During a personal tour, we can show them that it is not a nursing home and that they will still enjoy the privacy and independence they desire.
Also, it’s always a good idea to get feedback and opinions from others who’ve decided to invest in assisted living care for a loved one. Talk to friends or friends of friends whose parents may already be in assisted living. They will be able to share all aspects on why it has been a good fit for them.
Summerset’s family style care approach is one that we take pride in and one that our residents and guests enjoy. In addition to a 24-hour emergency call system, wellness programs and special attention to diets, we plan daily activities for our community.
Concerned about Costs?
Now that you’ve considered assisted living as an option and convinced your loved one it’s a good fit, costs become a topic. How much does this cost compared to other options? According to research, in-home care can cost up to $7,124 dollars per month, whereas assisted living costs an average of $3,500.
