Remember your first stocking? The smell of mom's turkey in the oven? Putting the last ornament on the tree? It's easy to get caught up in the memories and emotions of the holiday season. These memories can actually make it easier for people with aging parents to see how different things are now for their loved ones, and a visit home for the holidays can spark a conversation about senior housing and senior care.
It's not an easy conversation to have. Thinking about leaving a home filled with memories can feel overwhelming. Making hard decisions about the future and senior care can bring fear and anxiety, as families realize the impacts of aging.Many seniors may feel like they're giving up a level of independence, but it doesn't have to be that way.
Finding the right senior living community can actually increase independence, creating a sense of peace and calm for whatever the future brings. In fact, many people who move into senior living wish they had done so sooner.
