Modern senior living communities are comfortable, pleasant places to live and offer wonderful amenities and services. Today’s assisted living is very different from years ago. Still, as a caregiver or loved one of an older adult, it can be challenging to determine if they’re ready for assisted living. We’ll look at the five most common signs indicating your loved one is ready for assisted living.
What is Assisted Living?
First, let’s define assisted living. Assisted living is a form of long-term care that helps seniors with activities of daily living or ADLs. ADLS are skills we use every day, such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and eating. Sometimes, assisted living can be provided temporarily for someone recovering from an illness or injury. However, if you need permanent assistance with daily tasks, then it’s time for assisted living.
