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.
