How To Deal With Assisted Living

Take it one day at a time

Going from being independent to needing assistance can be a huge shock to your systems.  Many of us really don’t want to accept that we have reached this stage of our lives.  However, if we relax, take it one day at a time and allow the process to happen, we will quickly come to a point where everything is natural.

Keep doing your fun activities

Don’t stop doing the fun things you like to do.  Take control of your situation and make sure that you can get up and do what you want the way you want to do it.  When working with a care facility they encourage you to be as active as possible and will have systems and employees in place to assist you with this transformation. 

Talk to your family

You raised your family all your life not it is time to enjoy what you have created.  You want to talk to your family about wishes, concerns and more.  When you talk to people about what is going on make them understand that these are your wishes and they need to be honored.  Remind them that they will be in that situation one day and to remember what they did.

Make new friends

This is a great opportunity to make new friends and have people in your situation around you.  When you make new friends and share experiences you can all work together to achieve a common goal.
