Senior Living - Moving vs Staying

Moving vs. Staying

For so many of the issues older adults face while living at home, senior living offers a positive alternative. Consider them side by side and see how senior living could be the wise choice for your family.

  Home senior living
Isolation from friends; inability to participate in favorite activities The warm company of peers; abundant cultural, social, educational and entertainment opportunities
Reliance on others' availability to get to and from appointments and events Scheduled car or bus service always available for appointments and outings
Eating alone; prepackaged meals; difficulty following special dietary guidelines Dining with neighbors; table service; freshly prepared cuisine; accommodations for special diets
Greater difficulty with household chores and maintenance Housekeeping, linen service and maintenance provided by professional staff
Anxiety over whether help will be available immediately An emergency call system in each apartment; a 24-hour staff ready to assist
Limited or no access to adequate exercise programs and equipment Daily fitness opportunities available to help maximize mobility, strength and overall health
Greater dependence on family for assistance with daily tasks; feeling like a "bother" Appropriate, discreet support provided by a skilled staff, which makes true independence possible

While a move to senior living may mean a big change for your family, the true cost of waiting far exceeds the convenience of delaying the decision. The sooner you make the change to senior living, the sooner you will feel the comfort and added peace of mind that comes with community living.
