How to Keep the Connection When Loved Ones Move to Assisted Living
When a loved one moves into an assisted living community, it can create significant changes in the way a person is able to interact with his or her family. There are new emotions to deal with as well, including a level of sadness. There are ways to improve this transition, though. The right senior living community and memory impairment services can help.
How to Stay Connected
There are many ways to remain connected with a loved one in an assisted living community. Once settled in, be sure to check out the visitor’s calendar to see what type of activities are taking place. It is also possible for you to spend some time with your loved one in the activities they participate in throughout the day. This includes events, socials, and planned activities that head out of the community.
It is also important to get to know and interact with the staff. Doing so can help you to ensure a higher quality of life for your loved one because you are more involved. It can also help you know what to expect and to remain in the loop when you cannot be there. Building relationships like this is always valuable.
