With the impending arrival of Hurricane Ian in Florida, we would like you to know that it is our goal to shelter in place unless ordered to evacuate by authorities. Families will be notified by each community regarding specific plans should evacuation occur. Our communities are equipped with large generators and sufficient fuel supplies in the event of loss of power. Our company philosophy is that residents will be better served, safer, and less anxious if they are able to stay at our communities in familiar surroundings with staff available to see them through the storm. Residents may also want to stay with family members and if this is the case, please arrange with the on-site team at their community. Please feel free to speak with the Executive Director or any of the Senior leadership at the community if you have questions. Best regards and stay safe. We will update after the storm has passed.
It is intimidating to make the leap to a senior living community. It can also be intimidating to research senior communities or bring up the conversation with Mom or Dad. Exploring a senior living community for yourself can feel as if you are giving up your independence. Moving a family member to a senior living community may feel like you are not supporting your loved one(s) enough at home. One might wish they could look into a crystal ball to see what the future holds.
Unfortunately, none of us have this crystal ball.
It is not always clear what the best decision is for the future. All we can do is listen to our hearts and be open-minded when it comes to senior care options. Many find that talking to others can ease worries and concerns and help gain perspective when facing life-changing decisions. For this reason, we want to share wisdom from residents and families who have walked the same path and made the challenging but ultimately rewarding decision to move to Allegro.
As with any major life decision, concerns and worries will present themselves. Most residents and families find that these worries dissipate as time goes on. The decision to find care for themselves or a loved one no longer weighs heavily on their hearts, and they can live with peace of mind that care and friends are nearby.
Deciding on a senior living community is a journey filled with many questions. We are here to provide you and your family with the answers you need before finding the community that fits your lifestyle.
The sheer number of senior living options can be overwhelming for older adults and their children. It's important to know the facts about each one in order to determine which is the best fit for you or a senior loved one.
