Truth be told, you are not alone. The ever-increasing aging population require families just like yours to face the very same issues and challenges.To help you and your family make the right decisions about assisted care, get the answers to these questions:
What type of assistance does your parent need? Many Rhoda Goldman Plaza residents simply benefit from guided and assisted care. Other patients require help with certain age-related conditions, such as memory care or physical therapy. Understand the scope of needs your parent might have from an assisted care program.
What kinds of amenities, features, and services does the program provide? Seniors gain great benefits from keeping their mind and body stimulated, so a quality assisted care residence will have activities and cultural opportunities on their schedule. It’s also good to get a baseline idea of the services and everyday functions the center offers its residents.
What are the costs and payment options? Determine how much an assisted living community will cost and what you or your parents can reasonably afford. Fees are usually updated annually to account for increases in operational costs. Rhoda Goldman Plaza also offers a series of installment or other payment options to make planning easier.
Does your parent need more focused assisted living advice? If your parent has special needs in their later years, it’s important to know that their community has dedicated personnel who can help with their unique requirements.
How much room will your parent need? Rhoda Goldman Plaza has studios, alcoves, and 1- or 2-bedroom apartments, sized to maximize your parent’s lifestyle comfortably and supportively. Consider how much room your parent will need.
Every senior is different. Knowing when it’s time to move them from total independence into a more managed situation can be difficult to determine among groups with diverse personalities and habits. Rhoda Goldman Plaza recommends adult children look out for these behavioral signals that it may be time to start planning care for aged parents.
Difficulty with daily tasks. Note if your parent is having a tough time preparing meals, self-grooming, or other everyday functions.
Needing reminders to take medication. Especially for seniors, keeping up with necessary prescriptions is crucial. If they’re having trouble remembering to take their daily dosage, they may need the guidance assisted living provides.
Noticeable weight change. Heavy weight loss, gains, or fluctuations over a certain time may indicate the need for professional caretaking. Mobility loss. Parents who have problems with moving around or falling may benefit from the secure mobility of assisted living.
Neglecting household maintenance. When parents can no longer perform household chores, or their home becomes dirtier, less organized, or hard to move around in, assisted living may be a possibility.
Increased isolation. Withdrawing from social life or family communications may show a need to increase interactivity in a structured setting.
Loss of interest. When they become indifferent about hobbies, interests, or activities they used to enjoy, planning assisted living for your parents may be your next step.
