Tips for moving into assisted living

It can be a difficult time for families and seniors facing the move into a senior care community. Inevitably, there will be a series of conversations, and some of those may be more difficult and contentious than others. We offer advice on talking to elderly parents about assisted living.

It's often a good segue or transition to begin with a short term trial stay. In this, your loved one can get a firsthand look at life inside a retirement community and for many seniors the experience can be eye-opening. They may have negative preconceptions about seniors' homes. However, the service, the quality of care, the cleanliness and other factors can change the mind of your elderly loved one. They might even begin friendships during a trial stay in a London assisted living retirement residence.
