2.Tour 3 Communities
The next step would be for us to tour 3 communities with the adult child/children. We will look at 3 different types of communities within the portfolio that makes sense for your loved one. We will tour 2 communities on the first day and then 1 more community within that same week.
3.Sit Down and Discuss
4.Take Your Loved One to the Community
Now that we have determined the best fit community, this is when we involve the aging loved one. You will take your loved one to the community to possibly have a meal, meet the residents, as well as engage in an activity that they enjoy. This simplifies the process for the aging parent by providing them with the best fit community the first time instead of overwhelming them.
5.Move Your Loved One to the Community
We have moved people in 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months, and 3 years from the time that we first started working together. As you could imagine, 3 days is very stressful for the family and it could limit us to community availability. 3 years may be too long as we don’t have a crystal ball to know if your loved one will be safe. The sweet spot from the time we start talking to the time that your loved one moves in is 6 weeks.
6.Follow up, Follow up, Follow up
Frequently Asked Questions...
It is always better to be proactive rather than reactive. There are so many more types of options available to the family the earlier they start the process with us. Some families have a timeline in mind, but in senior living there are other factors that don’t allow the family to control the timeline. The loved one might be falling more often, their cognitive impairment is getting worse, or possibly a health condition has become more urgent.
