We hear these stories unfortunately far too often. “Well, mom didn’t want to move so we thought that we were helping her by keeping her home.”
The sad but true fact is, that if you allow yourself or a loved one to wait until something bad happens, you’re not giving yourself the opportunity to keep some of that independence or to keep your quality of life. If you were driving and heard loud noises coming from the engine or a little smoke coming out of the hood, would you get it checked and fixed or wait until it completely broke down and you are stranded on the side of the road?
Having a big fall on the ice or having a loved one with dementia wander outside in this wintry weather can lead to scary and often tragic endings. Then, after the crisis, you try and put together a plan of moving mom or dad in a rush. This doesn’t typically work well. Not for the family members, not for the senior living that they’re moving into and especially not for the individual moving in. Moving into a senior living should be a well thought out plan and put together with care, we can help with that.
Visiting Kingsley Shores and speak with Jill Hawkins, our Sales & Marketing Director. She will be able to help guide you through the process, while answering all of your questions and addressing your concerns. It is our job is to find out what’s important to you and your loved ones, let you know what resources, support and services we offer and help you create a plan that works for you, even if it’s not senior housing that you need. We have many trusted partners and support systems that we’d be happy to refer.
So, please, please, please…don’t wait for a crisis to look into senior care and living options, have a plan – and let us help!
