Making A Plan
Let us help design a safe and enjoyable future for your loved one.
As our parents grow older, we see their lives changing—slowly at first, but sometimes suddenly and dramatically. It’s not unusual for adult children to come home for the holidays to see signs their aging parents are in declining health – a messy house, unopened mail, or unwashed clothes.
It’s also not unusual that the first response is one of panic. Calls to state agencies tend to double or triple around the holidays, and admissions to senior living communities accelerate as well.
The time to discuss the future is before crisis forces you to make decisions under duress, limiting your options, or spiking your costs. You want the peace of mind knowing your parent or loved one will receive the best possible professional care, will be treated with compassion and respect and will be able to make the most of life.
Expect your loved one to say, “I’m not ready yet.” Too often, people miss out on the enjoyment of senior living because they wait until they’re facing a medical problem. The time to begin the conversation is now.
A truly carefree retirement begins when your loved one can put their worries aside and enjoy life. If your parent or loved one needs immediate assistance, think of Ecumen of Litchfield first.
