Make the move before a crisis.

The biggest misconception about when you move is the idea that you will “feel right” when the time comes. People who spend their days waiting to “feel right” often say later that they waited far too long and missed out on too many opportunities to enjoy their life and end up in a nursing home which may be a long way from home, depending on waiting lists at the time.

To time your move, take stock of your current situation and then decide if a change of address can offer a better way forward. Consider carefully how much time you think you might have, and how much of it you are willing to waste waiting to “feel right.” But also think about your safety and the help available to you at the right time.

You should also consider the feedback and comments from friends and family. Have people in your life expressed concern about your living situation? Have you noticed a change in the nature of your visits with those special to you? If social visits have become “chore time” for those who come to see you, you might want to consider a different situation.

Right now, your current situation is your decision. When the decision is made for you — because of a health crisis or because your loved ones and carers are exhausted — your options are then very limited. 

Incorporating an integrated approach to wellness for the mind, body and spirit.

Helping make the decision.

Caring for a loved one is an admirable undertaking. Many families take pride in their ability to care for their own, and we support this wholeheartedly. However, the demands of life and the severity of needs can create incredible strain. Assisted Living is a way to gain some much-needed support for your loved one and to allow you to concentrate on enjoying your relationship and living your life, too.

If you are helping a loved one decide when to move, it is incredibly important to communicate your love and concern for making an informed and considered decision. If you have been providing home care you should help your loved one understand that a move doesn’t mean abandonment. For many, the move to Assisted Living tends to strengthen relationships that have been strained by the needs of one party.

Remember that Assisted Living is not the loss of independent life. It is a decision that could actually increase freedom in everyday life. An Assisted Living community is not a nursing home. It is a place for people to thrive and be successful and independent in their daily life.
