Discussing Senior Care and Assisted Living in New Jersey During the Holidays
The holiday season is an important time for getting together, sharing memories and spending time with family and friends. It is also the close of the year and the start of a New Year, so it happens to be a time of reflection and gratitude – for those we have in our lives and those we have lost.
When the holiday season is in full swing, many families gather together and it can be the perfect time for a discussion around whether a senior is ready for assisted living in New Jersey.
At Adult Care Advisors, we believe that honest, open discussions may not be easy for some families, but the connection of the holiday season can often make it possible. Some members of the family may live far away from the senior. They may not understand the senior’s current state of health or mental condition the same way that those who have more contact do. Give them some time to adjust to the changes.
When you discuss the future and where the senior wants to live, be sure to:
- Listen to the needs of the senior and what is important to them – it may be to be closer to family or to stay within a familiar neighborhood. You won’t know until you ask.
- Listen to the needs of others who care for the senior as well. They may have a solution that you haven’t thought about.
There are many excellent communities that offer high-quality assisted living in New Jersey. Adult Care Advisors can connect you with the ones that offer what you and your family want for your senior.
