That’s a great question. You’ve probably had the opportunity to see your parent or other loved one over a period of years. The aging process includes a natural slowing down, and you may see that certain day-to-day functions – such as bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and remembering to take medications – have become a challenge, and you’ll find yourself questioning how viable it is for that person to live on his or her own, and you have a natural concern for their safety and well-being.

 

Many people will begin the process of seeking an appropriate retirement community – touring the community and talking with staff on behalf of their aging loved one, and having made the initial inquiries, will draw their parent into the conversation.
