Johnson City TN Home Specialist

HELPING OLDER FOLKS PREPARE FOR CHANGE

 Helping seniors leave beloved homes for a new place is challenging.   I’ve been watching a loving daughter help her dad move to an assisted living facility, and she’s done it with grace and wisdom.   He’s surrounded by the familiar things that make him comfortable, he’s making new friends, and  he’s happier than she ever expected he could be.    She’s exhausted, but is sure she’s making right choices and is delighted with his smooth transition.  

 

There are many resources available to help in these circumstances.   A recent article may be useful for anyone, regardless of  age or health.   If you haven’t discovered the Resources section of APlaceforMom, I wholeheartedly recommend it.   A recent article on that site was an Essential Documents Locator Checklist - a detailed and very useful checklist of documents and information that a caregiver or survivor would find very useful – and it’s far easier to do that kind of thing ahead of time rather than having to struggle with locating important things in the midst of loss or emergency.  It’s something everyone should think about, even when they’re feeling young and invincible.   We really aren’t.   See how much of this information you could locate if you had to.   

A Place for Mom is a good place for locating and evaluating various kinds of care facilities, but there is far more on this site than that.   Browse the site’s resources and share this knowledge with all the caregivers you can think of.   Subscribe to their newsletter and spread the word.
