Most seniors prefer to remain in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible. However, that desire must be weighed against the possible health risks involved. When it comes time to assess the situation, we can help.
We partner with insurance carriers, institutions, and nursing homes to conduct detailed evaluations of the patient and prepare the necessary documentation and reports. Some questions that will be considered include:
Some seniors are resistant to moving into assisted living, but it can actually be beneficial in many ways. The move can be disruptive initially but living in a community of similar-aged individuals can improve their social lives. It relieves them of the chores and upkeep responsibilities. They can make new friends and enjoy activities they could not while living alone.
There are many options to choose from if it is determined to move to a senior facility. There are independent apartment homes, assisted living, and medical care facilities. The differences in the level of care can depend on what the person wants and needs. We can offer many tips on how to make this important decision.
