We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
Our country has seen some record breaking cold temperatures and snow accumulation this year. This leads to isolation for many of us, including our beloved seniors. Thankfully, the sun and warmth of spring brings a rejuvenation of the body and mind. And some studies show that May is the happiest month of the year, so it seems like a perfect opportunity to broach the subject of assisted living options with your loved one. Naturally, this conversation usually opens up the discussion around assisted living versus homecare. Many feel very connected to their home and the thought of leaving it presents as frightening, overwhelming and daunting. Below are some talking points to highlight some of the advantages of assisted living over homecare to help guide this discussion with your loved ones:
