Making The Transition to Senior Living
Resolving Emotional Uncertainty
Moving Toward a Brighter Future
The transition from a home you’ve lived in for many years to a new environment can trigger difficult emotions for everyone involved. Adult children may feel apprehensive about suggesting to mom and dad what to do, and aging parents may feel guilty for being a burden, or deny that they are ready to make a transition at all. It’s natural to have these feelings, but it’s also important to understand what’s causing them and how they can be managed.
Resolving emotional uncertainty starts by understanding that you don’t have to face your journey alone. It helps to talk about your questions with those who care about you and identify a network of people and resources that can help. The decision to move is the beginning of a transition that can be a challenging and lengthy process. Whether it's moving to independent living, assisted living, memory care, or nursing care, navigating this journey requires planning, patience, and research.
