Is it the right time?

Have you been increasingly concerned for the well-being of your elderly loved one? We have prepared a quick questionnaire to help you!

For many adults who find themselves placing tremendous efforts in caring for an elderly loved one, the question if it is the right time to consider a move to a retirement residence may have arose.

With the growing senior living industry in Canada, the selection for senior housing is endless. When it comes to formulating a decision, it is important that everyone involved participates in the research process and understands all options available.

To ensure that the correct choice is made, it’s imperative to consider and acknowledge all warning signs that your loved one may show to indicate that a move is necessary or is a possibility in the foreseeable future.

Is it the right time?

1) Do you often worry about your loved one when he or she is home alone?

2) Have you been putting extra efforts in taking care of your loved one?

3) Is your loved one experiencing decreased confidence while driving, loss of license and/or difficulty in finding transportation for appointments?

4) Has your loved one recently become forgetful? Have they been neglecting household chores and/or bills?

5) Would living in a senior living community that provided assistance in daily chores, such as laundry and housekeeping, reduce the stress on you and your loved one?

6) Do you believe your loved one would benefit from enhanced social interactions with others?

7) How much physical activity does your loved one have access to and actively participate in?

8) Would you feel a peace of mind in knowing that your loved one is receiving daily supervision?

9) Has a medical professional recommended that a senior living option may be beneficial for your loved one?

10) Is your loved one unable to take their medications correctly and on time?
