Over the holiday break, you may have noticed changes in your senior loved ones that have you anxious or worried about how to ensure they continue to live a healthy and content life at home. Personally, I know that we need to make some major changes for my mother. Her house is mostly a ranch style home, but her laundry room is in the basement. She's experiencing some decreased mobility and the fear of her falling is high on my list. In addition to the fact that she lives an hour away, and most of her medical providers are even further away.
There are many factors in determining the best housing situation as we age. Mobility, cognitive function, ability to maintain our homes or afford to source maintenance, proximity to family and caregivers, and transportation are just a few factors to consider.
I'm relieved to know that I have a team of professionals in my network that can help our family navigate our best next steps.
This trio of senior specialists can help your family by conducting a home assessment, coordinating caregivers and home improvement suppliers, downsizing gracefully, and many other senior living needs. If they can't handle something, they will know someone they trust that can.
