Three Reasons to Consider Assisted Living for Your Parent

“They aren’t ready for Assisted Living.” If you find yourself saying this about your parents, it may be time to reconsider. Many of our residents’ families will tell you that waiting to explore Assisted Living options until absolutely necessary is not the way to go. Too often, sons and daughters have a hard time stepping back to see the signs of when it’s really time to start looking at Assisted Living communities for their parent.

Below are three of our top reasons to consider Assisted Living for your parent:

  • They will be well taken care of. As we age, simple tasks like showering or cooking a nutritious dinner can become more cumbersome. At Assisted Living communities, the residents’ health and well-being are top priority. And most importantly, you’ll know they’re safe.
  • They can live life to the fullest … Loneliness and isolation are common in life’s later years. Studies show low social involvement can have a negative impact on your health. At The Cabana, our residents participate in daily community activities designed to promote socialization and engagement.
  • … and so can you. We all want to be there for our parents, but the stress of caretaking can put a strain on personal health and family relationships. If you find yourself worrying constantly, frequently checking on Mom or Dad, and sacrificing time spent with your own family, Assisted Living might be the best option for everyone.
