Z ClUbs from ffledical' By Ronda Addy Giving up independence is not something anyone wants to do. As we get older, we figure we've worked hard and we should be able to live where we want and come and go as we please. But unfortunately for some, that may not be possible For whatever the reason, the senior in your life has to go into an assisted living facility. The transition will not be an easy one, but here are some tips designed to make it a little easier. Now that the decision has been made to move your loved one to an assisted living facility, how do you choose one that is right for them? Word of mouth is a good place to start. Ask friends and family if they have heard about any good facilities. Do a little research either through phone calls to facilities to request information or through the Internet. Getting general information will allow you to determine if you want to pursue a facility or not. Next, start making a list of facilities you want to visit. When you go for a visit, have a list of questions you want to ask. Scheduling your visit around mealtime will let you see how dining is handled As you take your tour, pay attention to how the staff interacts with the residents. Do the residents look happy and well cared for? Is the facility well lit, open and clean? Be sure to ask about the activities. Are there daily activities? Is the staff involved in the activities? Check out the living quarters. How much closet space is there? Can residents personalize their living quarters? Can a wheelchair or a walker fit in the bathroom? How are emergencies handled? Does the facility call the family? How long does it take an ambulance toget to and from the facility? Are you required to sign a contract, and if so, can the contract be canceled? What is the down payment needed before moving in? You've made the decision about which facility to move your loved one to. Now comes the really hard part, the move itself. Chances are your loved one will be moving from a house with many years' worth of possessions. Decisions will have to be made about what to keep and bring. Have your loved one choose the possessions that mean the most to them and bring those to their new home. Prior to the actual moving day, have all the furniture and possessions in place at the new home. This will help avoid chaos and make the new resident the focus of the day. It is best to arrive in the morning on moving day to signify a new day. Make sure the staff is on hand to greet the new arrival. Even though everyone will want to be there to help, the fewer family members around, the better. Family members that are present should plan on stay- ing through lunch and helping the new resident make friends. Family members not involved in the move can stop by frequently to help with the transition. Once move-in day is over, the transition phase will begin. There will be difficult times and family members should be prepared to deal with these. After all, moving is a big adjustment for anybody, but moving and giving up possessions and independence is huge. SteVen]. Stone DDS General Dentistry Orthodontics !
