is dedicated to assisting seniors in finding
communities that will meet their increasing
needs as they age. From Independent Living to
Continuing Care, we have access to some of the best
residential communities across the country. Let
us help you with the transition from your home into a senior community.
Prepared: Know the costs. Assisted living can
be expensive. Be familiar with what each facility
charges for the various levels of care, plus the individual charges
for extra services beyond the monthly rate. Examine
your finances. Monthly rates vary. Determine
your affordable price range and shop accordingly.
Will family members contribute and how much? Are other benefits (VA and Long-Term Health Care) available?
about assisted living and senior living terminology. Find out what services
are provided by the residences in your area.
Keep in mind that residences can vary greatly.
Shop around. Finding a new home takes time. Plan
ahead to visit as many residences as you can.
Know what services you need and what to shop
for. Make an appointment to meet with staff.
Lifestyle doesn't have to end. Maintaining a
healthy level of exercise and good diet shouldn't
stop just because we age. Evaluation of
the right senior living community needs to
encompass the lifestyle of the future resident.
Active seniors need access to a different variety
of services than someone who requires skilled
nursing or even seniors of a sedentary nature.
Golden Years can truly be golden. Selecting the
proper community for your individual needs makes all the
difference in the world. Visit and revisit. Drop in for lunch. Once you've decided
on your top choices, revisit each facility at
least one more time and at different times during
the day. Talk to staff, residents, other family
members, and the local long-term care ombudsman. Gather as much information as you can to make the best choice.
Thoughtful: In most cases, adult children play
a major role in helping a parent secure an assisted
living home. Respect the interests, needs,
and wishes of your loved one. Although many assisted
living communities offer a lifestyle that preserves
autonomy and dignity, moving from home to a new
place can be a difficult transition. Work together
to make plans and decisions. Don't exclude your
parent from the process.
at Senior Transitions, our qualified and caring staff will
help you make educated and well-planned choices
for your future home. We know that those in transition
need empathetic and thoughtful assistance while they
make one of the most difficult choices of their
lives. Working with seniors and their families,
we can provide the solutions you need.
