Assisted Living Facilities in Shavano Park TXNobody wants to see their parent getting older and having difficulty with their own basic care. However, this happens every single year. As your mother might be getting older, you may have been helping her as best you can. However, your time is limited and you’re concerned about her safety and well-being at home.

That’s why you’re considering assisted living.

Could this be a good option for her right now? It could very well be. It all depends on her, her needs, and her expectations. While it’s easy to see things from an external perspective, you need to understand it from her perspective.

She may not believe assisted living is going to offer her any real benefit. She may have various misconceptions about it. She simply might assume it’s too expensive for her to even consider right now.

She needs to be able to decide this for herself.

Yes, you might very well be accurate in your assessment that he would do well with assisted living, but it has to be something she decides. You can’t make this decision for her. You need to be able to respect her decision as an independent and autonomous individual.

Just because she may require your assistance for a few things every so often, that doesn’t mean she gives up her right to decide the course of her life.

How can you help her make this positive decision?

First, find various assisted living facilities in the area, determine what they offer, find out how much they are, and learn as much as you can about the benefits they provide. Your mother may be interested in spending more quality time with friends or making new friends. She may have friends already at a particular assisted living facility in the area.

She might be concerned that when she moves in she will be giving up a number of her own rights as an independent individual. The more you know about assisted living, the easier it will be for you to convince her that this is the best decision for her and her future.

Encourage her to go on a tour.

Nothing is going to provide your mother insight into what life at assisted living would be like quite like a tour. Schedule a tour at a facility and she may have the opportunity to see some of the amenities, including the dining, entertainment, and rooms that are available.
