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's so hard to face this decision for your parents. The roles are reversed, and you are now the caretaker in the relationship. The people who raised you, loved you and protected you throughout your life need your help. You are met with the frightening job of choosing a senior living community for them when they can no longer care for themselves. We know how intimidating this task can be when there are so many communities and services to choose from that all claim to do the same thing.
Depending on what stage of memory loss your loved one is experiencing, this condition can present new challenges in caring and communicating with the individual. Regular activities that you once enjoyed may change and new challenges can present themselves when interacting with this person. Finding ways to engage and care for your loved one will help ease the stress of caretaking and dealing with memory loss.
