When we found out that my mom was experiencing signs of dementia, we didn't take the news lightly. We were concerned about her well-being, and I knew that she couldn't keep living on her own. To keep her safe, I decided to enroll her in a nursing home that specialized in mental health care. She was concerned about the change at first, but as soon as she moved in, she only had positive things to say about her new digs. She loved the ability to get in touch with doctors the same day, and she was even able to make a few friends along the way. This blog is all about keeping your parents safe, happy and healthy.

It's never an easy choice to move out of a home you've lived in most of your life. If you are no longer feeling safe living at home alone but you are nervous about moving into senior housing, it's important to remember that you have options. While you may be hesitant to move on into a different environment, the assisted living facilities today are dynamic places geared towards the senior who wants to live independently.
