We know that you want the best care for your parents, and we know that you want to make sure they are taken care of in their old age. Sometimes, this may involve seeking assisted living services. But how will you know when it is time to discuss assisted living with your parent? You may have always wondered about assisted living centers, but perhaps you are unsure if your parent or loved one needs it. At Summer’s Landing, we want to help you determine the best time to enroll your parent or loved one into a senior living center.
We provide your parent and loved ones with around the clock support, so you know they are taken care of. We want them to enjoy their life, and we want you to do the same. When it is time to discuss entering into assisted living, contact us to learn more about what we offer. In the meantime, take a look at some signs that it is time to discuss assisted living with your parent or loved one.
If It Becomes Too Much
Taking care of your loved ones involves a lot of work. This is especially true if your parent or loved one is elderly, lives alone, or has trouble getting around. If this is the case, you may want to think about different options of care for them that could make both your life and their life easier and more stress-free. Your parent or loved one may need help doing all the things that they used to do, but cannot now due to injury or old age. At our senior living center, we provide senior care services with everything they need to be comfortable and taken care of.
We provide daily assistance with everything they would normally be doing at home, such as:
Additionally, we offer beauty services and a barbershop to make sure that your loved one has access to everything they need. If taking care of your parent or loved one has become too much for you, your parent, or the current caregiver, contact Summer’s Landing for information on how we can help you and your loved one.
If Your Parent Lives Alone
Another sign that you may want to discuss assisted living with your parent is if your parent lives alone. If your parent or loved one currently resides alone, they may have trouble stimulating their mind with the normal human interaction they once received. Further, your loved one could be starting to suffer from memory loss or dementia. If this is the case, you should start discussing alternative care options with them to make sure they are getting the care they need. At our senior care center, residents can interact and enjoy activities together. There is a strong sense of community in the center, and it can help stimulate your parent or loved one and keep them mentally active.
Additionally, you may worry about injury if your parent or loved one resides alone. If you are worried that they are unsafe in their current environment while living alone or if they have fallen, it is time to start looking into a senior living center that can provide them with around the clock care and guidance as well as emergency care services. It will be a better environment for them, and you will not have to constantly worry about the safety of your loved one.
