Frequently Asked Questions
The answer to this question is complex and can be very personal. We offer a wide variety of resources to help you decide if you or your loved one is ready for senior living. While there are many signs that a loved one is ready, there are a couple of key questions to consider. Are they isolated or lonely? Do they need help preparing meals or need to be reminded to eat? Are they staying adequately hydrated or do they need to be reminded to drink enough water? Do they have mobility issues that put them at greater risk for a fall? Do they need help bathing or dressing? Have they been recently hospitalized or are you noticing any unexplained bruises or injuries indicating recent falls? Do they remember to take their prescribed medication? These are just a few questions to ask when considering the transition into senior living. Our care staff is more than happy to meet with you to discuss your options. Contact us today at 301-363-9688
