Having The Conversation

Having a conversation with a family member about moving to a senior living community can be difficult. If your feeling nervous or uncomfortable bringing up the subject, the fallowing tips can make it easier and your loved ones excited about joining a community. 

  • Ways to become prepared:  tour communities, speak with senior living professionals, speak with someone in your community that have loved ones already living in a senior living community.
  • Narrowing your search to the geographical area that best promotes family involvement is best. This will also allow you to focus on a smaller number of options instead of becoming overwhelmed by the information.
  • (Regarding listening)  Even if the need for senior living is certain, allowing your loved one to be heard and informed lowers anxiety for all involved.
