The time to move to an assisted living community isn’t always obvious. Experienced social worker Florence Marchick provides helpful insight on making this difficult decision.

So many exhausted caregivers struggle with the decision to move their older adult to assisted living. Even thinking about it makes families feel terribly guilty, especially when they’ve promised to never put their senior in a nursing home.
