Bringing up the topic of moving a loved one into senior living is not a comfortable one. It's challenging to get your entire family on the same page, let alone the loved one you're considering.
Common concerns are statements like, “mom is digging in her heels”, “dad is saying he will never move”, and “they think I am just trying to get rid of them”. Knowing how to approach these difficult conversations, having ideas of what to say and how to speak about a “community” versus the concept of an "old folks’ home” is important.
It's best to plan out and have these conversations early on in the process so that you, your family, and your loved one have the FREEDOM to plan versus having an emergency situation occur that leaves you with limited options.
