How To Know It's Time
"I'm Not Ready Yet!" is the most common response we hear when speaking with individuals about considering daily assistance. Moving from your present home into a senior apartment is a difficult decision. Unfortunately, many people wait too long and don't experience the full enjoyment of a Senior Living Community.
You recognize that you may need some help with cooking meals, medications, cleaning house, yard work and other chores. So, ask yourself - "How Will I Know When It Is Time?" The following "YES" or "NO" questions will help you.
Am I bored and lonely at times?
Does my social life revolve around the TV?
Is my circle of friends shrinking?
Could I use more exercise?
Is home maintenance a burden?
Do I avoid driving at night or should I stop driving?
Are housekeeping chores not as easy as they used to be?
Am I caring for a spouse and it's wearing me out?
Am I eating poorly? Have my eating habits changed?
Am I eating alone?
Do I worry about needing help and not getting it in time?
Do I want to enjoy better health?
Am I relying on friends and family to do things for me?
Is it creating a burden for them?
Do I sometimes forget to take my medication?
If you answered YES to any of the above questions, you may be ready for the benefits of a Senior Living Community.
