Making the decision to transition a loved one from an assisted living community to memory care can be difficult. It’s often hard to know when the time is right, and there are many factors to consider.
You’ve already made the right decision by moving your elderly loved one into an assisted living community. Much thought, research, and probably some soul-searching went into that decision. Now, you find yourself wondering if it’s time to make another move – this time to memory care.
What to Consider
Here are a few things to consider when making the decision to transition from assisted living to memory care:
¬ Has there been a recent decline in physical health?
¬ Have you noticed your loved one becoming more withdrawn or agitated?
¬ Are they having difficulty with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and eating?
¬ Do they need more help than assisted living offers?
¬ Has there been a decline in their mental or cognitive health?
Making the Transition
Your loved one has been in an assisted living community, but now the team members and family feel it’s the right time to move them into a memory care program. Often, the process is usually pretty seamless, and there are protocols in place that can help facilitate the move, especially if your loved one is at Avanti Senior Living. Avanti has a great continuity of care program that helps make sure your loved one’s transition into memory care is as smooth as possible. Our team members will work with you and the staff at the assisted living community to ensure a safe and easy move for your loved one.
