Having the Conversation

When Is the Right Time for a Move to Assisted Living?
If you’re wondering about the ideal time to speak to family members about a move to assisted living, you’re not alone. For adult children, broaching the topic with parents may cause stress and anxiety.

You may have valid concerns. Perhaps you have noticed that your parent has been struggling mentally or physically and that the situation at home is becoming unsafe. You may worry that one or both of your parents will forget to turn off the stove, will not take medications correctly or have escalating care needs.

The sooner you start a conversation, the better. The ideal approach is with respectful, open communication that gives your family member as much choice as possible. By sitting down for an honest discussion – in which everyone can share their insights – you avoid hurt feelings or resentment, and you can maintain trust in your relationship.

Sometimes, the idea of a move can feel intimidating, but we can help. The ideal way to become comfortable –for both you and your parent – is to spend some time visiting communities. It doesn’t have to be a daunting experience! It can be an exciting adventure that brings joy and comfort to the whole family. Get to know some of the residents and staff members, ask questions, enjoy a meal and learn about the benefits firsthand. At New Pond Village, we are always happy to meet with you and your parent to answer any questions.  Our goal to provide our residents with engaging experiences that connect them to the things they enjoy, support them as much as they need and to keep families close. To schedule a visit, please contact us.
