Is it time to move to Assisted Living? - There are many people that are thinking about their options as their parents age, but one of the most common questions we hear is about the right timing. It is a big question, luckily there are 6 major signs that can help you determine the answer.
Deciding to move mom or dad to a facility is never easy, and caregiver guilt and grief are common reactions to moving loved ones out of their homes. As Rita Vasquez puts it this way, “We lose our family member twice: once to the disease, and again when they pass.” Caregivers may wonder if they could or should have done more; they may feel separation anxiety in moving their loved one to another location. If family dynamics are difficult—if, for instance, a caregiver caring for a parent had an unhappy childhood—that may further complicate the decision process.
However you may have a peace of mind knowing that assisted living in Highland Utah as an industry is here to help you. We know this can be a difficult time, and the expense is always a concern. That’s why we try to make it easier for you with an all-inclusive, affordable package.
