Monday Motivation 6/20

No matter how the weekend went, Monday is always an opportunity for a fresh start.

When Monday rolls around many people dread their alarm clocks going off for the fear of the week. If you're like me you hope your week is way better then how your weekend went. Life is tough and can drag you down, but remember no matter how the weekend went Monday is always an opportunity for a fresh start. Monday marks a new week to be a better you!

When caring for another you can lose sight of the next day as you are so focused on what needs to be done for your loved one. Which is normal, because you love them and want them to be happy and healthy. When you become a caregiver you stop being a daughter, friend, or sister. You lose the family relationship and form a “patient to doctor” relationship.

So as today is Monday and a start of a new week ask yourself are you a caregiver who is no longer a daughter, friend, or sister? And one that has formed a “patient to doctor” relationship?

Take back your relationship with your mom or dad, with the one who is family not a patient.

But How??

Wanting to make the transition back to daughter or son? Sister or brother? You need to make a decision on what kind of care your loved one needs. Are they more independent? Or do they need care 24/7?

Usually your loved one will fit perfectly in an Assisted Living home. Assisted living is not a Nursing home!

What is Assisted Living then?

Assisted living or senior living really is what the name describes, it is a place to help assist people who need more attentive care; be it medication care, hygiene care, or help eating and preparing meals for one’s self. Assisted living is a place that should encourage its residents to lead a healthy and happy life, not take away their choices and freedom. Many people think it to be like a nursing home. Though they have some similar qualities  the two places are in fact different.

Senior living is a home where one can come and lead a life similar to the one they lived when they were on their own. They can do their daily activities like exercise, they can be social, go to doctors, even go grocery shopping if needed. It's important to keep close to the same daily routine, it helps the transition to be easier and it always helps to have something to depend on.

Here at Bel Aire Senior Living we try to first: make the transition as smooth as possible for you, second: make our home your home and third: make Bel Aire Senior Living a place you love.

We strive to make our resident feel at home and feel like they are part of a big family.  We feel next to their health and safety, being part of a family is of top priority. We get to know each resident personally we learn their name, ask question about their past and about their family,  and we always celebrate everyone's birthday. A birthday is a day that is your own special day to celebrate you. We love birthdays and celebrations here are not only to have a party but to recognize and celebrate our residents individually.
