Assisted Living is a good thing

Hotel-suite-living-roomThe Living Room : The need for a high pass Assisted Living occur unexpectedly. All went well until he suffered a fall, stroke or an unexpected event changed their ability to live independently. Can child or adult guardian present at a reasonable distance. You have a busy life and schedule. Their needs are too big for you to take care of them. They need special care and constant attention.

If you have not visited Assisted Living Community in a couple of years or perhaps ever, you're in a pleasant surprise. They are not like the horrors of early 20th century in a nursing home.

In major population centers in the U.S. Like many cruisers never fly - the wards of Nice, elegant dining rooms, media centers, salons and beauty rooms. The Program Manager is much like a cruise director, encouraging residents to participate in many activities. Older people can walk or sit in a beautiful outdoor garden, enroll in craft classes, lectures and excursions, hop a shuttle service to the city or for an appointment or simply for the wine to gather around the piano each cocktail hour in the afternoon. Pets are often welcome.

Sounds delicious, right - and it is. So why resist the elderly move? One major reason is cost. These places are expensive and insurance long term care is a new phenomenon. While we are living longer than ever, our pensions and savings are exhausted, because the old model of retirement at age 65 and die 70 is not true. Even in poor health, medicine prolongs life. Money does not grow at the same time. While extended families in the district should take care of their elders, families are scattered and not close enough, able or equipped to care for an ailing old man. While one might think that a community of higher price range, there are forms of financial aid or reduce the cost of production. Contact a specialist housing for older people seeking help.

Another reason is that, having lived in their house for 40 years and older, the higher can not decide what to bring and what to leave. The choices can be overwhelming and paralyzing. They watch the auction will be shown on television and I think something about it "would be useful or simply have so many things, they know where to start.

If you must move your beloved to a larger community of seniors, here are some guidelines.

It is important and less stressful for you if your home around your new community before sorting through a lifetime of possessions. That's what you should take.

In most cases, the upper apartments have a kitchen, a lounge, a spacious bathroom with a capacity for one wheelchair and 10 x 12 bedroom. Total square meters is about 700 square feet sounds small, but remember that your supervisor will be working outside their apartments with many activities, and eating three meals in the common kitchen with other residents. The kitchen is likely to include a refrigerator, sink, microwave and two hotplates. There will be space for a few plates and pots and pans is also a small laundry in a dishwasher. In most cases, the high never use your kitchen.

What to bring:


A small table is not more than 36 "diameter, 2 kitchen chairs. 4 covered dishes and cutlery, pots or containers, trash cans, small appliances, microwave, if necessary

Living room:

1 of six feet, plus 1 bed 1 chair or love seat and 2 chairs. TV, dresser, video equipment, telephone, library or a curiosity for photos and memories. Coffee tables are a tripping hazard.


I text or 2 Q beds, night tables, 1 phone TV, video equipment as required 2 lamps, dresser and mirror 1 or 1 bathroom. 1 Bedspreads seat, pillows, 2 sheet sets.

Bathrooms: laundry basket handles garbage 4 sets of towels in the bathroom / shower

You want to ensure that the cabinet has double hanging rods. Seniors are often divides rather than requiring full bar to hang. If you can afford, install a small set of drawers to pull over shoes. Elfa Closet Maid and rubber designs that are perfect for this need. This will be an additional cost but worth it in the comfort and additional storage.

The magic is in the accessories. I saw high-rise apartments that seem to motel rooms and always breaks my heart. Do not believe them when they say "do not care" and they want nothing. They care, simply do not. They always say they regret, he pretended not to care. He tried not too much trouble or just in bad mood at that time.

The opposite is trying to put everything in its new space. Too much furniture store creates a lot of impact and can be dangerous and oppressive in a small space. You can fit 2,000 square meters of objects in a 700sq ft room, no matter what you do. Less is more.

Make sure that your precious memories within reasonable limits, go with them. Decide what you really like - what it means to have memories and make them happy. Some things are left behind. Take what is in the library, the cabinet of curiosities or a wall. Take any photo albums to keep in the closet and re-frame images where appropriate. Often, old picture frames and fall apart. Renewal of them to honor his memory. Make sure the family pictures proudly on the wall. Your family are proud of you high and you want to see your photos and show your friends.

Try to recreate your living room and placement of accessories for the bedroom as close as possible to their previous home. Communities provide superior parts for windows. Warm bought the windows with valances.

Remember that some small outdoor chairs and a small table and the elderly in her apartment has a patio or terrace.

Memory Loss / Alzheimer's / Dementia

These seniors have enjoyed little room with a bed, night table, wardrobe and a chair and a bathroom. You do not need a kitchen. I do not really know what your level of consciousness is certainly familiar objects and pictures with them even if he was not sure to remember what they are. If in doubt, take with them. They spend their days in communal areas of supervision and encouraged to participate in activities that match their abilities. They will be stored safely at night. Often their houses on the upper floors of living communities attend if you can not avoid walking enclosed terrace and visitors entertained.

Knowing all this in advance will save you time, effort, anxiety and discomfort. A good design of your closet and storage is a big difference in how they develop in their new home. Making this transition as easy as possible to make a big difference in your stress level too.

If you are unable to move your supervisor of your account, contact the National Association of Senior removal by a professional manager for the movement of high level in your area.
