Although this may be the right time to talk your mother or father to sell their home, it does not necessarily mean that they need to move to an independent or assisted living facility. Your mother or father may want to remain in their home with their personal belongings, but they still want to move somewhere that requires less upkeep. At home senior care can provide guidance and support services for your mom or dad, that allow them to live at home with just a little assistance. Downsizing to a smaller home or an apartment may be the ideal situation for your loved one.
Although you may be worrying about your parent’s future, today may be the right time to consider selling their home that is too big and is becoming difficult to maintain. Reducing the overhead on this home will provide your mother or father additional funds to move forward and find a new home, and that will suit their current situation. At home senior care, will also assess your mom or dad to determine any special requirements they may have for ADA equipment. If your loved one is determined to have a disability, it is possible their equipment may be covered by Medicare or Medicaid.
At home senior care is an opportunity for your parent to remain at home or to move to a smaller house rather than moving into a facility for minimal care. If your parent is cognitive and socially active, staying in their own place with personal assistance as needed may be the best choice. There is no place like home and when your parent is happy living life to the fullest.
A large empty nest may not be the place for mom or dad to live anymore, but they can create a new family gathering place with their belongings. Relatives and friends can visit them in their new surroundings.
