Accepting that it's time for an aging parent or family elder to sell their home and move to an assisted living or memory care community can be tough. Adult children and families often delay broaching the subject of moving as it can be so emotionally difficult.
It's also a discussion that can overwhelm families. Many put off talking about senior living because they don't know where or how to start the search for a care community that will be a good fit for their loved one.
This is where a senior care advisor can help.
Senior care advisors like the ones at SeniorHousingNet offer support and guidance to older adults and their loved ones. This includes educating families on the variety of care options and local providers who might be a good fit.
An experienced senior care advisor can save you time and money. They help families narrow their focus to the right level of care and the communities or home care agencies that meet the senior's personal criteria.
Another advantage of working with a senior care advisor is having access to insider knowledge of the senior care market. An experienced local care advisor knows which care communities earn high marks from residents, their families, and state surveyors. And, equally as important, which care communities don't.
During your first call with any senior care advisor you are considering working with, take a few minutes to ask these important questions:
