Why Should a Senior Move to Senior Living Now During a Pandemic?
Is moving into assisted living right now a good idea for your senior loved one?
Are you and your family ready to take on the needs of a caregiver full-time?
Are you considering the move to assisted living for your loved one?
Reasons you should still consider moving to assisted living include:
- Preparedness security
- Resident assessment 2x a day for COVID-19 symptoms
- Nurses around the clock to respond to any sudden illness like COVID-19
- Chef Prepared meals
- Medication administered
- Laundry service
We all know a senior has a better chance to stay healthy and alert if their issues are assessed quickly and medical care is initiated fast. If your senior loved one is in desperate need of assistance, you may want to consider assisted living. At home, care falls on you, as does the responsibility for buying groceries, cooking, administering medication, doing the laundry and ensuring the environment is free from health and safety hazards.

Do You Have What it Takes to Take Care of Your Loved One at Home?
According to Kaiser Health, “Ultimately, every family must weigh and balance the risks. Can they give an older parent enough attention? Do they have the emotional and physical stamina to take this on? What does the parent want? Will the pangs of displacement and disrupted routines be offset by the pleasures of being around adult children and grandchildren?”
