How To Care For The Elderly

As the person in your care ages, preparing her for the possibility of living in senior housing could help make them comfortable with the idea.

Where you see safety, nutritious meals, medical supervision, and a calendar full of fun activities, she may see loss of control, a building full of strangers, and the end of all that's familiar. This is where a tour of the facilities can be beneficial.
