“Senior living is the biggest category people need when they ask us for help,” Cook said. doesn’t recognize the range of options available. It’s not your parents’ welfare anymore.”
My Memory Clinic’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Rosemary Laird, has treated patients with living conditions that negatively impacted their quality of life.
“Our physical environment and the people we interact with on a daily basis really matter,” she said. When we don’t get that comfort and security, we often fall into depression and become less physically active.
“It can be the beginning of a vicious circle of ever-increasing frailty and a diminishing quality of life. Do as much as you can to find a comfortable and safe place with people who care about your needs.” Doing things can make a big difference in your overall well-being.”
For caregivers, choosing the “right” housing for their loved ones is one of the most important and stressful decisions, and often one that has to be made quickly.
“It can be difficult to factor in their health, preferences, financial resources, family logistics, facility types and availability,” Laird said. “It is very important to do this individualized assessment because it is undoubtedly true for everyone. Some older people need more help with physical activity, others need supervision and Some people need extra care support.
“A facility may look suitable, but if the services provided do not meet your loved one’s needs, it is not suitable. Understand this and know what facilities are available in your area. Experts can be great help.”
Waiting until the last minute to make a decision puts the individual at a disadvantage. Cook says many clients who turn to One Senior Place for help have reached that critical stage.
“They are overwhelmed,” she said. “Things that were once easy, like managing your home or paying your bills, suddenly trigger anxiety, as do memory problems, safety issues, nutrition and care issues, isolation and loneliness.”
During “Senior Living Options Day,” more than a dozen senior community representatives will meet to answer questions about specific properties.
To add a fun angle to the serious theme, the event also includes freebies, door prizes, and tastings of a wide range of appetizers and desserts prepared by chefs from participating seniors communities. It also serves an additional purpose.
“Food is a very important part of the decision-making process,” Cook added.
