How To Tell If It’s Time For Assisted Living

Moving a loved one into assisted living can be difficult for all parties involved, but sometimes the most difficult part is determining when the time is right.

Clear signs, such as a broken hip or a sudden decline in health, may speed up the decision-making, but there isn’t always a single clear sign.

This is when the question of “when is the “right” time for a loved one to go into Assisted Living?”

There may be a better question to ask because Assisted Living Facilities provide so many better options that put residents’ emotional and physical well-being first. That question is: Will a senior loved one’s quality of life improve if they relocate now?

One typical complaint among those who have successfully transitioned is that they wish they had done so sooner. Is there a proper time to do something? And how can you know when that time has come?

It takes a lot of effort to be a caretaker, both physically and emotionally. It may become impossible for the caregiver to offer the proper care your loved one requires if you or another relative is the full-time caregiver for your loved one. If this is the case, an assisted living facility may be beneficial to your loved one.

“Now we rest easy knowing our mom is well cared for.”

Mom has Alzheimer’s, and my stepdad’s declining health meant he could no longer care for her in their home. Once we moved her to Mercy House, the doctors saw her health improve to the point it was two years earlier. Now my brother and I rest easy knowing ourmom is happy and well cared for.

“It was an easy transition and we’ve never looked back.”

Mom was not getting the care she needed in the nursing home. So we moved her to Mercy House. It was an easy transition and we’ve never looked back. Today, even in her final days, she’s a different person! She’s happy. She’s not alone. And she’s well cared for.

“I’m so grateful I found Mercy House. They really rescued me.”

Our family just couldn’t handle Mom’s dementia at home anymore. I wanted her to live out her final days in a real home, surrounded 24/7 by loving caregivers that felt like an extension of our own family. I found all of that, and more, at Mercy House. They really rescued me.
