Are you or your loved one wondering if the time has come for you to move into a senior living community? At Discovery Village At Melbourne, we understand the doubts you may be having, and we want to help you make the most well-informed decision possible. To this end, we have compiled a list of useful questions to help you determine if making the move will be in your or your loved one’s best interests.
Q: Have you noticed a change in your loved one’s personal hygiene levels? For instance, are they wearing the same outfit a few days in a row, or neglecting to take frequent baths or showers?
Q: Does your loved one seem socially isolated or on edge? Is it difficult for them to get out and about because they have stopped driving, and you aren’t always available to take them where they need to be?
Q: How tough is it for your loved one to access the health and wellness services they need from home? Can they make it to medical appointments timely, and do they have the equipment and/or instruction they need to keep physically active?
Q: How is the state of your loved one’s home? Is housekeeping becoming an increasing challenge for them due to visual impairment and/or mobility limitation? Do they have someone to help out with these tasks, or is the home becoming a mess?
Q: Does your loved one require help with dressing and grooming? If they rely on a wheelchair to get around, are they able to transfer themselves independently from the bed, couch, or bath to the wheelchair?
Q: Has your loved one been showing worrying signs of memory decline that go beyond normal forgetfulness? Has their condition progressed from when it was first diagnosed, and do they require more help than what you can provide from home?
Q: Is your loved one worried about aging in place alone despite being physically and mentally healthy? For instance, are the finances troubling them, or do they worry about being alone with no opportunities for socialization?
