FAQs for Assisted Living
As we age, it’s inevitable that our abilities will change. When these changes affect daily life or the ability to live well or safely, then it’s time to consider other options. If you’re considering assisted living for a loved one, here are some questions to ask:
- Does your loved one have food in the refrigerator?
- Can she prepare a balanced meal and feed herself on a regular basis?
- Can he safely cook at home and remember to turn off the stove?
- Have you noticed that he hasn’t taken a bath or shower in a while?
- Does she wear clean clothes or has she been wearing the same clothing for days at a time?
- Does the house or yard look as neat and clean as it used to be?
- Can they take their medication without being reminded?
- Does your loved one get around without help?
- Do they pay their bills on time?
- Do they get out of the house?
If you answered no to many of these questions, it may be time to consider assisted living for your loved one. Costs vary based on the level of care needed. If assisted living at Uplands Village sounds like the right choice for you or your loved one, rest assured that we’ll help you find the perfect plan to fit your needs.
