Helping an aging parent or loved one make good decisions about their future can be a daunting task – one for which you may not feel qualified. This Decision Guide is intended to help you analyze the major factors that impact a decision – financial security, ongoing healthcare, and overall safety and well-being. The objective is to arrive at a decision that allows your parent or loved one to feel at home – and for you to have peace of mind.Often, you’re in the best position to know when a parent or a close loved one is ready to make the move to a senior living community. You see the signs. Maybe Mom is feeling lonely, or Dad has become more forgetful. Meals are more of a problem. Home maintenance is becoming too much of a burden. Worry about safety issues increases.
There are many signs, and they usually become more pronounced over time. Eventually, isolated problems multiply, making daily living more complex and worrisome. A variety of issues and abilities may prevent seniors from meeting their everyday needs in their own home. Even if they still “get around” easily and have no physical issues, other things may affect a loved one’s ability to cook a meal or clean the house.The first thing we recommend is that you visit our community and talk to staff and residents. This will give you tremendous insight into Sunnyside Communities as a vibrant senior living community and will help create a high level of confidence that this is indeed the right place for your parents.
At Sunnyside Communities, your parent will find a well-equipped, maintenance-free residence where independence and vitality thrive. You’ll also be impressed with our strong commitment to health and fitness as exemplified in our facilities and programs.
